In case of a war...


Lt Gen Thanongsak Apirakyothin, the Third Army Commander, was discussing the formation of the new 7th Infantry Division based in the North when he obviously let slip a very interesting "strategic plan."

Asked by a Matichon reporter whether the setting up of the new division in the north was a reaction to recent reports of neighbouring countries' plans to develop nuclear capacity and digging of underground tunnels close to the Thai border, he responded:

"We have our own assessment of possible future scenarios with our neighbours. If it's Cambodia, one squadron of our F-16s should suffice. But with Burma, we aren't quite sure. They have MiGs and are backed by the Russians and they also have a nuclear development plan aided by North Korea. Therefore, we have to develop our own preventive plan for the future. It's nothing to do with politics..."
