[Marxism] Thai junta joins anti-imperialist camp

I guess you missed the irony then. Yes of course the idea that some Thai 
dictators are anti-imperialist because they coddle China is about as 
logical as the idea that some Syrian tyrants are anti-imperialist just 
because Putin's Russia has been the main state arming them to turn their 
country to rubble.

For the record I see the very idea of an "anti-imperialist camp" to be 
an anti-Marxist, anti-working class aberration.

I nearly choked on my coffee, when I read this interpretation - it's
about as plausible as Pinochet's Chile joining the anti-imperialist camp
after Mao expressed his satisfaction about the coup in 1973.

Or perhaps there's a reactionary monarchist form of anti-imperialism.
