I think if you ask the Vietnam and Cambodia people they will disagree. 
French is so cruel for them. Animals.
 

Low knowledge post really. 

Can ask Yinn. Because Yinn know everything history.


Whatever economic progress Vietnam made under the French after 1900 benefited only the French and the small class of wealthy Vietnamese created by the colonial regime. The masses of the Vietnamese people were deprived of such benefits by the social policies inaugurated by Doumer and maintained even by his more liberal successors, such as Paul Beau (1902–07), Albert Sarraut (1911–14 and 1917–19), and Alexandre Varenne (1925–28).

Apologists for the colonial regime claimed that French rule led to vast improvements in medical care, education, transport, and communications. The statistics kept by the French, however, appear to cast doubt on such assertions. In 1939, for example, no more than 15 percent of all school-age children received any kind of schooling, and about 80 percent of the population was illiterate, in contrast to precolonial times when the majority of the people possessed some degree of literacy.

Similar to British takeover in Burma, Malaysia. And Holland in Indonesia. 
Selfish and cruel bully. Rape and stolen. So much.

 

Lucky Thailand not be like that. 

Hi Yinn great to see you moving over here - I voted for you 4 times in your now infamous POTY win. Trump would have had a field day is those ballots had been accurately counted !

Anyway I digress , anyway a discussion of Thai social history and it's 'exceptionalism'  is difficult to have without straying into taboo areas.  I can easily imagine that for a 19th century peasant toiling in the fields it didn't matter much the nationality of their oppressor and there were a multitude of reasons why 1932 happened which have been conveniently forgotten in the nationalistic narrative. 3 and half million dead SE Asians might not look too kindly on Thailand's role as an aircraft carrier to bomb them "back to the stone age" when initially the Vietnamese just wanted the French colonists out of their country rather than communism. Finally lest we forget The Thai government backed the Axis and allowed the Japanese to colonize your country in WW2.

Well you should do as when you registered you agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of the forum. They were updated only yesterday, so an appropriate time to familiarise yourself with them.

I never read the rules, certainly not for forums, life's too short, those concerned with rules never seem to have much of a sense of humor 😃

Thank you for that. Watched all of it and what I noticed was that no one was fat, adults or children. Lucky days for them then as no US junk food to make them fat like KFC, McDonalds, dunkin donuts etc.

KFC is just like Hat YAI fried chicken. 

McDonald's is high in fat and salt like a good curry and other rich fried Thai foods. 

Dunkin donuts is like PanTong Go donuts. 

Obesity is not a western invention, and back then even Americans were rarely fat.

Obesity exploded in the 1970s.
