    Turkish forces are shielding Syrians and Kurds

    News, Published on 21/10/2019

    » I would like to set the record straight regarding "Operation Peace Spring", as the Bangkok Post's coverage of Turkey's offensive in Syria has been concerning in terms of facts. I wish to address in particular two commentaries, published on Oct 12 and 16. But before that, I would like to underline that the aim of this operation is to eliminate a long-standing terror threat against Turkey's people and national security, to ensure the security of our borders, to neutralise terrorists in the region, and to save the Syrian people from the oppression and atrocities of terrorists. Turkey's counter-terrorism efforts in Syria will also contribute to the territorial integrity and unity of Syria by disrupting separatist agendas, and lay the ground for safe and voluntary returns of displaced Syrians.

    Rising seas mean deltas need more sand and mud

    News, Published on 21/10/2019

    » Doubtless it sounds crazy to anyone who has watched a sandcastle crumble as the tide washes in but the key to stopping the world's densely populated deltas from sinking beneath the waves is sand. Or rather sediment: the combination of gravel, sand, silt and clay that large rivers carry down to the sea and deposit on deltas. Sediment that constantly and naturally replenishes deltas, keeping them -- and all the people, fields, industries, cities and wildlife that rely on them -- above the water.

    Military spend makes budget a hard sell

    News, Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 21/10/2019

    » The opposition's decision to abstain in the voting on the government's 3.2-trillion-baht budget bill for the 2020 fiscal year is a smart move that makes them look reasonable and not a "bad guy" who opposes everything associated with the government simply because they are in opposition.

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 20/10/2019

    » According to the Meteorological Department, the "cold season" in Thailand officially started last Thursday, although "cool season" is perhaps more accurate. It is helpful that they are so precise about it. A cautious "in the coming weeks" might have been safer, just in case a nasty hot spell pops up and we find tourists flaking out in the streets. You just can't be sure these days of climate change and weird weather.
