The West hated Pol Pot, waged war against his force. Yes. After 1979, the West grudgely supported Pol Pot to wage war against Vietnam. The West just hated Vietnam more.
The West should apologize to the Cambodian people for using Pol Pot to wage war against Vietnam. It caused more suffering to the Cambodians.
The Cambodians are always at the bottom of the pile in suffering. Even the losers South Vietnamese are above the Cambodians in the pile of suffering.

Read the link Moron,and you read some History.
History invariably describes the genocidal Khmer Rouge as MAOISTS.

As you know, the West hated Pol Pot, waged war on his forces, and exposed his genocides. China and the Chinese Communist Party dictatorship inspired, funded, armed and supported the genocidal MAOIST Khmer Rouge, and invaded Viet-Nam to "punish it" for defeating the CCP puppet regime of Pol Pot, as is all established historical fact.

Read some history, stupid, and you will not make such obvious glaring errors.

Say, do you work for "Peoples Daily"?

THAT would explain why you are so stupid!

"Maoists were always more enamored of the pure Marxist ideal than their Soviet counterparts, and after the Sino-Soviet split of the late 1950's the Chinese Communists made a couple of attempts to radically communize China, the "Great Leap Forward" which attempted to decentralize industrial production and the "Cultural Revolution" which attempted to alter people's attitudes in line with the expected communist transformation of human nature. While radical Maoists had to back off their program in China itself after some spectacular failures fueled a backlash by pragmatists, Maoist-oriented revolutionary movements elsewhere had the luxury of cleaving to the pure ideology insulated from any pragmatic elements that might have a vested interest in preserving some semblance of an industrial economy. Fortunately, most of these unreconstructed radical Maoist movements have failed to take power (e.g. the Shining Path in Peru), but there was one horrible exception in the mid 1970's: Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

The Khmer Rouge leadership recognized that if the Communist ideal was incompatible with industrial civilization and an urban existence that a division of labor implies, then a principled Communism would have to thoroughly deurbanize society and eliminate all industry. When the Khmer Rouge seized power and took the shocking step of evacuating Phnom Penh in April of 1975, they were merely acting with the courage of their Marxist convictions. The worst that can be said of Pol Pot was that he was sincere; the Cambodian people were in fact freed of the "alienation" of a division of labor and individual personality, and were reduced to a perfectly uniform egalitarian existence on the collective farms.

Norodom Sihanouk
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norodom_Sihanouk

1965, he made a pact with the People's Republic of China and North Vietnam to allow the presence of permanent North Vietnamese bases in eastern Cambodia and to allow military supplies from China to reach Vietnam by Cambodian ports. Cambodia and Cambodian individuals were compensated by Chinese purchases of the Cambodian rice crop by China at inflated prices. He also at this time made many speeches calling the triumph of Communism in Southeast Asia inevitable and suggesting Maoist ideas were worthy of emulation. In 1966 and 1967, Sihanouk unleashed a wave of political repression that drove many on the left out of mainstream politics. His policy of friendship with China collapsed due to the extreme attitudes in China at the peak of the Cultural Revolution. The combination of political repression and problems with China made his balancing act impossible to sustain. He had alienated the left, allowed the North Vietnamese to establish bases within Cambodia and staked everything on China's good will. On 11 March 1967, a revolt in Battambang Province led to the Cambodian Civil
