There’s very deep geopolitical maneuvering going on, analysts say. But does POTUS understand it?
After multiple marriages, family feuds, and much of his life spent living in Bavaria, Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is coming home.
The much-married crown prince’s jet-setting, Germany-based lifestyle doesn’t jibe with being the monarch of one of Southeast Asia’s big powers. He will have time to grieve his father’s death—and think about the job.
The beloved monarch’s death comes as Thais chafe under a military regime that overthrew the elected government and forced a referendum that will entrench the generals for years.
For once, ISIS is not the suspect, and military rulers have many enemies. But the attacks may signal the spread of a slow-burning Muslim insurgency.
