Yesterday Admiral Phaisan Meesri of the Thai navy and Commander Brian Bangay (name transliterated from Thai and possibly incorrect) of the USS Jackson met at the navy base in Sattahip to discuss the exercises. 

 

The exercises have been run since 1995, this being the 28th year.

 

Commander Bangay gave the opening address in front of a large sign saying "openning", notes ASEAN NOW.

Oh dear.

Hope Elon sends soon some electric motors for the newly acquired submarines "with no engines".

 

I also guess the "Scheinese"will keep an eye on the action.

Thais really should learn the art of proof reading before printing.. or maybe they thought that was the American spelling?

Sattahip to Samui? That's a long swim.

Still, what could possibly go wrong?

Another dog and pony show.  Maybe Admiral Phaisan Meesri can get a MOU with the US Navy to fix his broken aircraft carrier and a few other items.
