Thailand previously known as Siam has been all along a very aggressive nation even today. They are rather violent as well.
 
Siam has been the aggressor who had waged war against her neighbour at many times. she is all out to conquer & invade Myanma ( Burma), Laos, cambodia , Even vietnam as well. they also tried to conquer malaysia & that singapore which was singapura that time was a protected state of siam.
 
Siam (Thailand) has very bad relationship with her neighbours even today still the same. in the history of South east asia, purly in terms of military they have always been the strongest & most powerful.
 
why didn't burma, laos, cambodia & vietnam join forces against they common enemy siam?

Kent, if you studied your history, you'd know that Siam, Burma, Cambodia, Champa, Dang Trong (South and Central Vietnam under the Nguyen), Laos, and Vietnam have fought many wars with each other over the past five hundred years. And many of these wars involved alliances. Champa was reduced to a single vassal state by Dang Trong, and then dissolved by a reunified Vietnam in the 1830s. Kampuchea Krom (the Mekong Delta from Saigon to Ha Tien and Ca Mau) was taken from Cambodia by Dang Trong in the mid-1700s in a war that pitted Dang Trong against Siam. Essentially, it was a war over which side of the Cambodian Royal family would ascend to the throne. As you can infer from this, the Siamese were not the only aggressive state in SEA. Perhaps its fair to say that all had been fairly aggressive when at the height of their powers.
