    Background: THAILAND

    Military chiefs in Thailand claim they finally have won the battle against communist insurgents. In the past three years, government forces have scored a string of victories against the insurgents, seizing guerrilla strongholds throughout the country. The guerrillas now are holding only well-contained pockets. Large caches of arms have been captured and the military says it has strengthened all border points, hopeful of maintaining its control over the guerrilla movement. The military chiefs say that nationwide, the communist fighting force has been halve from 10,000 to 5,000, since 1979.
