    Thais must face up to China reality

    News, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 28/03/2016

    » There has always been a special bond between China and Thailand, which hosts the largest overseas Chinese community in the world.

    Hanuman help us from a 'happy' ogre

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 24/09/2016

    » The crusader has returned to the gate, ready to crush the infidels.

    Tell truth on terrorism

    News, Editorial, Published on 01/09/2015

    » Last week's arrest of a suspect in the Ratchaprasong bombing murders also rekindled a recurring controversy. It is the use and actual definition of terrorism.
