Siam's intervention in the Global War on behalf of Germany was precipitated by a number of factors: pan-Thai sentiment calling for the reunification of all Thai-speaking peoples in Siam; fear of being surrounded by British colonies and protectorates, in Burma, Vietnam, and potentially the East Indies; sympathies with Germany, like Siam a country in the centre of its region that had suffered numerous predations by its larger, united neighbours until it was unified; and, a desire to limit Japanese influence. Although Siam's assault on British positions in mainland Southeast Asia and the Malayan peninsula did contribute to the collapse of European colonial rule in Southeast Asia, the Siamese strongly resisted Mexican attempts to coordinate assaults on the Philippines and China.
