The Thailand prime minister and Thai King have interesting responses to the flooding that has overtaken Bangkok recently...
“What we’re doing today is resisting the force of nature,” the prime minister said. “We cannot resist all of it.”
On Friday, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, the army chief, who is reported to have been in contact with the royal family during the floods, said king was concerned that royal residences not be given special consideration in directing the flow of floodwaters.
“His Majesty is very worried about the Thai people,” the general said “He always has been and always will be. That’s him. He doesn’t want anything special, and he said the water must be allowed to flow naturally.”
