The Thais in Exile
Repression, exile and emergence of the guerilla in the North East of Thailand (1960-1965)
Keywords:Cold War, Thai North-East, Laos, China, Vietnam, Thais in Exile
While Thailand's fate during the Cold War may seem more enviable than that of most of its Southeast Asian neighbors, the country has nonetheless experienced greater and greater unrest as the United States were sinking into the War in Vietnam. And the North-East, poorest region of the kingdom, was among the most affected by the violence which broke out between, on the one hand, the armed forces and, on the other hand, the forces of the Communist Party. If the development of the communist forces has been possible, it was largely due to the links which existed between the North East and the neighboring kingdom of Laos. The dynamic between the Vietnamese Revolution and foreign reactions then began to reach the Thai ally of the United States.
