Duh....Why would the leader of a Junta overthrow of a democratically elected government be invited to a Democracy Summit? 🙄

Prayut to control of the country via a Coup , not democratically from an election .

I must admit to not being a fan of Biden but I do like this move ........................LOL

I've been wondering why DDCI Cohen met with PM last week, as it was a bad optic, all things considered, for the DDCI to meet with a fellow who came to power via a coup and who retained power in an election many say was fraudulent. Perhaps Cohen was quietly delivering a message that Thailand would not be invited to this Democracy summit.

 

Then again, maybe David just wanted to take advantage of a C-17 always on call on his behalf. It's kind of exciting to refuel mid-air, too.

Having slip to a new low in global ranking in democracy ranking by Freedom House due to drop of civil liberties, unequal treatment of minority groups, damaging influence of money in politics and increased polarization, shouldn’t the summit be held in a higher ranked countries like Argentina or Mongolia.

Surely the general could order an invite dose Joe know who he is? we only fire on protesters and jail everyone in sight for the most innocuous reasons once or twice a day  my 112 is welcomed all around the country and We pay 300bt per vote 🤔

I don't know the reason for the snub -- if that's what it is -- but I would not worry about the US of A alienating Thailand too much because, if you look at the map, Thailand is the closest the US can get for land-based intelligence on large parts of Sothern China without being in a Communist ruled country.

People would if his predecessor didn't keep (falsely) insisting he won the last election. 

Trumps fault that everyone keeps mentioning him and not the actual people who actually keep mentioning him then
