I am not paranoid but the coup in Thai had me wondering.
What if the new military govt decided to attack Malaysia due to their long-standing believe that we have been supporting the Islamic militants in southern Thailand?
As the UK and Aussie air forces, here due to the Ex-Starfish –under the auspices of Five Power Defence Arrangement, I was wondering whether these forces would come to our aid as mandated under the pact.
UK got a couple of Tornado GR4s and the Aussies the F111s. We could also use the Sentry flown by UK to set a good CAP around southern Thailand. With our Honets and Fulcrums, it would, on paper, be a walkover.
Or maybe that was the reason, Sonthi (the new Thai PM) did not dare to do anything apart from sending out tanks against the unarmed Thai citizens.
