When it comes to the analysis of Thailand’s monarchy it is unfortunate that unsourced and unattributed comments are often the best we can do.

With that disclaimer in mind, this article from Asia Sentinel will be of interest to many New Mandala readers. It provides some context and extra quotation pivoting around Wiklieaks exposures, especially concerning the events of 2008.

I should also note that there are still thousands of leaked Thailand-related cables that have yet to see the light of day. In fact, only 10 cables from the US Embassy in Bangkok seem to have been published thus far. Does anybody know when new tranches are likely to be forthcoming?
