It’s so funny to hear that a commie-hater and a commie pondering on forming an axis of evil…
Strategically I don't see the importance of defence ties to Thailand as well, they don't have land borders with China, nor the need to deploy their navy to the South Chinese Sea, or any other defence related advantage for us.
I still say the key for us is Singapore, once because they have a capable military, be it air force, or navy, secondly because they strategic position:
The sea area around Singapore is the key towards India, be it through the strait of malacca, or the Sunda strait, any sub or CBG that poses a threat to us, will most likely have to use this way, or take a diversion around Borneo. That's why increased defence related ties with Singapore, especially with their navy would be way more important for us.
Think about joint maritime patrol operations in that area and the strait of malacca, not only subs and vessels from both navies, but also our P8I (maybe even with NATO like joint crews), connected with their G550 Phalcon AWACS. We already have close ties with their air force and joint exercises, this would be the next step and a important increase of deterrence for us.
Not to forget that both navies would be able to block the same areas of oil supply towards China, which is more than important in case of a conflict.

keep one's fingers crossed (for someone or something) and cross one's fingers= to wish for luck for someone or something, sometimes by actually crossing one's fingers; to hope for a good outcome for someone or something. I hope you win the race Saturday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I'm trying out for a play. Keep your fingers crossed

Now the picture posted suits you !!
and the pic was for your second comment " pray that China responds " lol
Convincing Thailand to join the defensive line means you help ASEAN countries getting stronger , so ASEAN can stand independencely without USA military support .
Who knows when will US withdraw from ASEAN due to the economy problem, if ASEAN strong enough to hold up CHina in SCS (east sea), India will not need to worry about CHina's invasion in India Ocean also
1. Hehe, do I need to say again ??we will buy many many salt water filtering , so we will ahve enough fresh water. But we will block CHina merchan ship in Malacca and you can do Nothing to stop us.You will have No oil and then collapse.Originally Posted by Kiss_of_the_Dragon
We are not just empty talk like you, we set up some guard point inside your Red line, and you can do Nothing but keep an endless talk
Who will win this game ??
2. CHinese in VN can shoot to death Chinese , so CHinese in Thai can do the same also or Thai people will massacre them like in Indonesia or sent them home like VN ^^
2- Chinese shoot Chinese in Vietnam..what you smoking?? Most Chinese use those corrupted Vietnamese to shoot your own kinds in order to protect ours interest of exploiting vienameses...we have done that since many centuries...and still doing now...the proof is that we got alot of business and contract to exploit your resource and you vietnameses are just our underpay labor.
Thai Chinese shoot Chinese??? Haha sure unless we have commit a crime otherwise it's Vietnamese that Thai used them as Turkey shoot....just look at the vietnamese population in Laos, Thai and Cambodia compare to Chinese...you're just wondering that your kind is nothing but an extinction specy in those countries...you sure use Chinese massacre by Indonasia as discussion provocation but do you know massacre Vietnamese by Laos, thai and Cambodia...no Red Crox dare to report.
