America's "Quad Alliance" is a Dead End

While the "Milk Tea Alliance" focuses on united US-funded opposition groups against China, the Quad represents regional governments strong-armed into advancing Washington's anti-China agenda. 

October 28, 2020 (Joseph Thomas - NEO) - The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue or "Quad" as it's been referred to is a US-led bloc created in 2007 consisting of the US itself, Australia and supposedly Japan and India. 

The bloc, whatever its stated purpose is for being, is clearly an anti-Chinese project created by and for the US and at the absolute expense of the other 3 members. 

The fact that it has been "revived" by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after its creation during the administration of former US President Barack Obama helps illustrate the continuous nature of US foreign policy despite who occupies the White House and that unelected interests rather than America's elected representatives drive (and will continue to drive) this anti-Chinese policy regardless of who wins America's elections in November. 

The Western media has attempted to claim China's growing "assertive" nature is at the root of recent, deteriorating relations between it and the Quad, but the truth is blatantly clear to see. In each case, from Australia to India to Japan, it is the US creating and exploiting crisis after crisis to poison any potential form of cooperation with China amid its own self-inflicted trade war with China. 

Thai Patriots Expose US-Funding Behind Anti-Government Protests

October 27, 2020 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Pro-Thailand groups came out in large numbers today to counter weeks of destabilizing anti-government protesters organized by the billionaire-led Thai opposition and funded by the US government. 

One group protested US meddling in front of the US Embassy in downtown Bangkok with signs reading "please stop hybrid war in Thailand" and "Mr. Desombre! Your job in Hong Kong was good, but it won't work in Thailand."

"Mr. DeSombre" refers to the current US ambassador to Thailand, Michael DeSombre, who was previously in Hong Kong amid US-funded unrest there. 

Later in the day over 1,000 pro-Thailand demonstrators converged in a public park with similar messages denouncing US meddling and the opposition groups abetting US interference. 

They also came out in defense of Thailand's constitutional monarchy - a 700+ year old institution that has unified and defended Thailand for centuries leaving it the only nation in Southeast Asia to avoid Western colonization. 

Despite leftover Cold War narratives claiming the Thai military and constitutional monarchy are close allies of the US - China is now Thailand's largest trade partner, largest foreign investor, largest source of tourism providing more visitors than all Western nations combined, and Thailand's largest arms supplier - long-since replacing the US. 

China is also a key partner in several major infrastructure projects including Thailand's rollout of 5G technology and the construction of a high-speed railway that will connect Thailand to China via Laos.

Thailand's military and constitutional monarchy - along with the government and large Thai business interests have clearly pivoted Thailand toward China.

Washington's current efforts to undermine and destroy the Thai monarchy are clearly aimed at dividing the Thai public and destabilizing the country - thus rolling back growing Thai-Chinese relations. 

US and its Paid Agitators Continue to Deny Documented Meddling 

The Western media and its Thai partners immediately denied that ongoing anti-government protests are being funded and engineered by the United States. 

This is despite US government funding being extensively documented and the Thai opposition itself openly joining the "Milk Tea Alliance" alongside confirmed US-funded opposition groups in Hong Kong and Taiwan. 

Germany Aids US Meddling in Thailand

Germany has aided the US in wars and meddling around the globe and is now taking a leading role in interfering in Thailand's internal affairs on behalf of Washington. 

  • Germany has for years funded Thai opposition groups like Prachatai and iLaw alongside the US government
  • Germany's parliament has recently attacked the Thai head of state on groundless accusations of interfering in Germany's sovereignty by merely addressing Thai politics while traveling in Germany
  • Germany's diplomats have regularly accompanied Thai opposition leaders to police stations when summoned to provide public support
  • Germany's embassy is now a rallying point for US-funded anti-government protesters in Thailand

October 25, 2020 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Just as Germany has followed the US in serial violations of international law and aided in multiple crimes against humanity - including aiding the US occupation of Afghanistan and America's current illegal occupation of Syria - Germany is also aiding US-funded opposition groups in Thailand. 

When anti-government protesters vowed to rally at the German embassy in Bangkok, the embassy should have declined to get involved in Thailand's internal political affairs - an obligation all nations including Germany must fulfill under the United Nations Charter.

Instead, the German embassy demanded the Thai government protect anti-government protesters and vowed to receive any statement handed to them by protest leaders. 

This latest staged event organized between the protesters and their foreign sponsors comes after Germany's parliament - led by Green Party politicians - attacked Thailand's head of state, King Maha Vajiralongkorn - accusing him of undermining Germany's sovereignty by addressing issues of Thai politics while in Germany. 

Of course - addressing issues of Thai politics while traveling in another nation is not a violation of that nation's sovereignty. 

On the other hand - the German government through the Heinrich Böll Foundation funding several core Thai opposition organizations alongside the US government is absolutely a violation of Thailand's sovereignty as well as the UN Charter.  

The German Government Helps US Fund Thai Opposition Groups 

The Heinrich Böll Foundation is listed on Internet Law Reform Dialogue's (iLaw) official website as a donor alongside the US government's National Endowment for Democracy (NED). 

Prachatai - as disclosed on their own official website - is also funded by both the German government's Heinrich Böll Foundation and the US NED. 

Both Prachatai and iLaw form part of the core around which anti-government protests in Thailand have formed.

Prachatai promotes anti-government protests through daily, one-sided reporting.

Efforts to rewrite Thailand's entire constitution are being led by iLaw - an organization who receives all of its funding from foreign governments - including the US and Germany. 

US-funded Thai Protesters Fly Terrorist Flag at 2015 Bombing Site

US-funded Thai protesters fly Uyghur separatist flag just meters from where Uyghur terrorists killed 20 innocent people in 2015.

October 25, 2020 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Anti-government protesters organized by Thailand's billionaire-led opposition and funded by the US government today flew flags of the so-called "Milk Tea Alliance" including the blue and white flag of Uyghur separatists - members of which attacked the Thai consulate in Turkey in July 2015 and carried out a deadly bombing in Bangkok at that very intersection in August 2015 - killing 20 and injuring over 100. 

The separatist flag flying just meters from where the bombing took place - features a sky-blue background with a white crescent and a white star in the center and is the flag of "East Turkestan" - the entity Uyghur separatists seek to transform the Chinese territory of Xinjiang into. 

East Turkestan is also how Xinjiang is interchangeably listed by the US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) which funds Uyghur separatist groups as well as virtually every aspect of the increasingly anti-Chinese opposition in Thailand itself.

While the US and its European allies claim that China is abusing Uyghur minorities in Xinjiang - in reality Beijing is conducting an extensive anti-terrorism campaign to deal with violence that - until recently - had killed hundreds a year through bombings, mass knife attacks, and other forms of violence in Xinjiang, across the whole of China, and abroad including Bangkok in 2015 . 

Uyghur extremists also make up a large number of foreign fighters operating under the banners of Al Qaeda's many affiliates in Syria according to even Western media outlets like the Associated Press

The other three flags flying at the US-funded protest on October 25 and spotted at other protests over the past month represented the US-funded Hong Kong rioters, the US-backed Taiwan independence movement, and the violent, CIA-funded Tibetan rebels. 

US-funded Sedition in Hong Kong Officially "Join" Thai Mobs

Thailand's protest movement is clearly part of the United States' regional anti-China campaign. 

October 25, 2020 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Bangkok Post in an article titled, "Hong Kong students pledge loyalty to Thai protesters," helped shed any doubt over where the US-funded anti-Chinese movement stood in regards to likewise US-funded protests in Thailand - confirming once and for all the regional nature of US interference in Asia and its goal of undermining Beijing's closest regional allies - including Thailand.

The article would claim: 

Hong Kong students have pledged support for the pro-democracy movement in Thailand after the recent wave of anti-government protests has rocked the capital for over a week.

It would also note (emphasis added):

Anti-government rallies are sparking an outcry abroad. On Monday, Hong Kong activists gathered at the Thai consulate in the city to show solidarity with their counterparts in Thailand. Joshua Wong, one of the leaders of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement, was among them. Others are following suit in the UK, US, France and Japan.

Angel Woo, a student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), said most Hong Kongers stand with their counterparts in the pro-democracy movement called the "Milk Tea Alliance", an online bloc of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Thailand standing in defiance of China.

Why Thai protesters would be "standing in defiance of China" is never explained by the Bangkok Post. 

Thailand at the moment has one of the most constructive relationships with China in the region and undermining this relationship including deep economic ties - especially amid the global COVID-19 economic crisis - would cause irreversible damage to the daily life of tens of millions of Thais.

China is Thailand's largest trade partner, largest foreign investor, and the largest source of tourism - accounting for more tourists per year to Thailand than all Western nations combined. 

China is also Thailand's largest arms supplier - long-since replacing the United States.  

China is also a key partner in major infrastructure projects including the rollout of 5G and the construction of a high-speed railway that will link Thailand to China via Laos. 

The high-speed railway will make it possible for even more tourists to move between both countries as well as open a direct corridor for Thai goods - especially agricultural products - into China, replacing complex and inefficient land routes current used, or expensive air transportation. The completion of the railway will open up economic opportunities never before possible for millions of Thais, Chinese, and their counterparts in Laos.

It is clear from pressure the US has exerted even on its own European allies regarding the rest of the world's growing ties with China that the current Thai government's growing relationship with China would not go unnoticed or unpunished by Washington.
