ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the relations between Thailand and the U.S., which are improving in the past couple of years. The strongest evidence of this came last November at Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders' forum that was held in the Thai capital, Bangkok. During the forum, U.S. President George W. Bush publicly praised Thailand for its co-operation in the war on terror, and in particular for its arrest in Thailand of Hambali, the alleged mastermind of the Bali bombings in October 2002 and believed to be a key member of South East Asia's Jemaah Islamiah, which has links to al-Qaeda. Since Thailand is unlikely to join the U.S. in military research and development, like for example Japan and Israel, the designation seems partly to serve as a U.S. stamp of approval for Thailand's military.
