Who Blinks First?

Thailand and Cambodia agreed, if on nothing else, on the important step of withdrawing the military troops from the border. This is a critical step to avoiding a military confrontation between the two countries.

But the troops aren’t moving yet. In an article published just two hours ago, Thai troops on the border said they were ‘ready to go,’ but just waiting for the order.

Face – it’s important, and the cause of more than a few stupid actions in the region. Who blinks first? It probably won’t be the Cambodians, who have the advantage of not being in someone else’s country, and not suffering malaria in large numbers.
