ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the increase in military spending to preserve the balance of power in Thailand. Lieutenant general Pitsanu Puchakarn defends the military's demand by indicating that it should stand at par with defense spending of its neighboring countries. He points on the need to have the equipment to counter the separatist insurgency in the South. It is inferred that if the government fails to cut the military's desire for increased spending, the budget deficit will widen.
