- To appreciate the news sometimes you need Pali:
Santisena = army of peace

senâ (f.) an army.
In the following Thai news article:
"The National Reconciliation Commission (NRC) yesterday proposed to set
up a special "unarmed army" and engage in dialogue with militants to end
violence in the restive South.
The NRC has proposed that the military establish an unarmed "peace
force" unit dubbed **Santisena ("army of peace")** comprising civilians,
members of the military and the police to keep the existing conflict
from spiralling into more violence."
