Cobra Gold 2018: No more cheap talk, just action - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 The Cobra Gold multilateral military exercise is a barometer of how strong the Thai-US security commitment is despite several hiccups in recent years. Thailand's strategic role and value cannot be underestimated, especially at this pivotal juncture with the fluid security landscape of the region. After nearly a decade of inertia, the Thai and US administrations are gradually fine-tuning their wave-lengths and meeting mutual security needs.

The 37th edition of the exercise, the region's largest military manoeuvres, will kick off on Feb 13 and last for 10 days. Unlike the three previous years since the May 2014 coup, the US Defence Department this time has taken control of the process, more or less bypassing the State Department.
