Thailand, officially called the Kingdom of Thailand, is a country located in the center of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. It shares its borders with Laos, Burma, and Cambodia.
Thailand has a long history stretching back to the ancient period. One thing is known: the country has never been occupied by any foreign power.
In 1941, Japan attacked Thailand but Thailand entered an alliance with Japan. Japanese passes through Thailand, which was then called Siam, into the British colonies of Burma and to India.
During the Korean War, Thailand sent troops on the side of the United Nations forces. The country then became an ally of the United States. When America entered the Vietnam War in 1965, Thailand was one of the countries who assisted the U.S. and South Vietnam to fight the NVA. Thai troops were deployed to Vietnam. The United States, on the other hand, had several airbases in the country which was used to bomb communist positions in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. After North Vietnam's victory over the South in 1975, relations between the U.S. and Thailand soured. As a result, the USAF pulled out of Thailand.
In 1978, Vietnam invaded Cambodia, overthrew the Khmer Rouge government, and established a pro-Vietnam puppet government. Many Khmer Rouge fighters fled to Thailand while Vietnamese forces chased them. Vietnam made several inclusions into Thai territory, frequently clashing with Thai troops. Several countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, and China trained and provided support to Khmer Rouge fighters and anti-Vietnamese fighters against the Vietnamese. This was done in Thai soil.
World War III Edit
The Kingdom was not involved in the conflict during the initial days of the war.
The fate of the nation is unknown, especially when China declared war against the USA and formed an alliance with the Soviet Union and possibly North Korea and Vietnam. Vietnam may have already invaded the nation, as before the war, it made several inclusions into Thailand to chase the Khmer Rouge. This has yet to be seen as the Asia Theatre has not been elaborated on.
