I would like to thank The Japan Times for publishing Kevin Rafferty’s May 26 article, “Thailand is on the brink,” a balanced article of high journalistic quality.

Rafferty did his research well and has in-depth understanding of what actually happened in Thailand. Unlike those reports that condemned either side of the conflict in an unconstructive manner, his report gave both sides of the story without illusions based on shallow observation.

Rafferty could perhaps have also added that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has been elected a member of Parliament seven times. Please keep publishing articles by people who really know about the country they’re writing about.
