  • Description

    The news that United States marines and aircraft from Thailand were used in the Mayaguez rescue operation brought a fresh round of anti-United States demonstrations in Bangkok on Thursday (15 May).

    A small group of demonstrators gathered outside the U.S. Embassy yelling slogans and demanding that the United States pull all its military forces out of Thailand.

    Protesters handed the U.S. Charge d'Affaires a list of demands.

    Meanwhile, Thai newspapers scorned the United States for the action -- one editorial called it "a slap in the face of Thailand."
