    Oblivious army

    News, Postbag, Published on 27/09/2019

    » According to the latest UN report on rising sea levels, Bangkok is one of the cities that will be experiencing yearly floods 30 years from now. If the military was really serious about protecting the country, they would be using their budget to move their more vulnerable installations to higher ground and buying equipment to combat floods instead of the attack helicopters, missiles and rockets that army commander Gen Apirat Kongsompong wants.

    Fuzzy Thai logic

    News, Postbag, Published on 19/10/2019

    » Historically, fear of communist regimes has been used by politicians to keep them alive, strive and win elections. In the USA, politicians always create a hostile enemy and introduce a powerful fear factor to get elected. For most of the last century, the USA treated China, the Soviet Union, Cuba and Sandinistas as a threat to democracy and the whole world. First, it was Soviets, later China, and in this new century, al-Qaeda and the Islamic State became the new threat. And now they have a new enemy -- immigrants from across the border from Mexico and South America. A whole generation of Americans grew up dreaming about communists taking away their freedom and democracy. Sadly, even today a big lobby of Cuban immigrants in Florida keeps those fears alive.

    Govt must act now

    News, Postbag, Published on 02/02/2019

    » It has been well known for many years that Thailand has a pollution problem. The country is one of the highest users of poisonous agricultural chemicals. Poorly regulated mining, industrial and energy sectors pollute the groundwater, air and soil with impunity. There is virtually no regulation of vehicle emissions, while the marine and rail sectors are off the rails when it comes to pollution. This has been going on for as long as anyone can remember.
