Do you think I am attacking you or I am attacking the entire Khmer people?
I say, I am attacking the entire Khmer people. You are making the entire Khmer people looking very bad.
Attacking entire Khmer?

People already knew you are an idiot. You're talking like you are smart guy when you're not.

Smart person don't attacking people endlessly without sleeping and eating. You're such a numskull.

Going out every forum telling others that you're smart when in fact, you're not.
Fast writing and without grammatical errors doesn't tell people you are a smart either, and most likely smart person don't claim or prove to others they are better.

"Convince a man that he is an animal, that his own dignity and self-respect are delusions, that there is no 'beyond' to aspire to, no higher potential self to achieve, and you have a slave.

Let a man know he is himself, a spiritual being, that he is capable of the power of choice and has the right to aspire to greater wisdom and you have started him up a higher road."

Mere animals, who lack reason, are not responsible for their actions; nor are people who are mentally “sick” and not in control of themselves.

In such cases it would be absurd to try to “hold them accountable.”

We could not properly feel gratitude or resentment toward them, for they are not responsible for any good or ill they cause. Moreover, we cannot expect them to understand why we treat them as we do, any more than they understand why they behave as they do.

So we have no choice but to deal with them by manipulating them, rather than by addressing them
as autonomous individuals. When we spank a dog who has urinated on the rug, for example, we may do so in an attempt to prevent him from doing it again - but we are merely trying to “train” him. We could not reason with him even if we wanted to.

The same goes for mentally “sick” humans.

What can we do to train the Khmer people to NOT murder other people?

Can we train the Khmer people to be smarter? LoL.

You and Viet people need to be trained to do right things. They need to stop producing more people when they know they can't afford to feed them. This would cause those staving people flooding to neighboring country such as Cambodia and create more problem with Cambodia.

Cambodia is too small and still poor, they can't feed your Viet people. This is a right thing to do, right?

LoL at Cambodia. Currently Cambodia has a much higher birth rate than Vietnam. I read that on the USA-CIA government website.

Anyway, the Cambodia you have never known:

1. Does not know the difference between killing and murdering.
2. All they think of is murdering in war time, and peace time.
3. Their style of murdering is to dump the bodies into the river, floating as trophies. That's the chest beating style.
4. It seems to me the Khmer now have up the ante. If the victims were females, they would take time and strip the bodies naked before they dumped into the river.

Discuss.

The Khmer on this forum have been angry, mad, cruel, acting stupid, thus prove my point. Saving my time from posting links. Do you want me to post links to support my points?

Could you tell me what the best attractions are in Siem Reap and surrounding? I am going in September and staying in Tara Angkor hotel. Do you have any suggestions?

Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia | EPS

If the thought of Cambodia brings to mind war razed towns, broken architecture and solemn Buddhist life, a trip to this South East Asian Kingdom will be an eye opener. For the uninitiated, the country has had turbulent past, a mix of colonialism and monarchy.
However, the Cambodian life, even amidst poverty owing to its violent history, is a cocktail of adventure, spiritualism and natural living. While it is most famous for ancient temples, tropical beaches, floating markets and a rich cultural heritage, visitors testify that the generosity of warm Cambodian smiles gesture a general well being that remains the most touching part of a stay.
The town of Siem Reap tops the must - see list of all foreign visitors, and offers a wealth of ancient temples and historic ruins.
Travel enthusiasts have dubbed its temples’ site Angkor,“one of the most spectacular sites on earth”. Angkor was the seat of the Khmer dynasty (9th century to 15th century) and also holds remains of the empire amidst rich forest area. Among the temples, the most famous Angkor Wat is known as the world’s largest single religious monument. The temple of Bayon, noted for its richly detailed smiling stone faces, was the last to be built in Angkor in 1190 AD by King Jayavarman VII, and incorporates facets of Hindu cosmology.
Watching the sunset atop the Pre Rup temple is part of every traveller’s agenda. The temple was built by Khmer King Rajendravarman in 962 AD. Pre Rup means “turning the body,” named so for the funerals that were held here, involving rotation of body ashes in different directions. Another stop in the vicinity is the Royal Palace Enclosure, with the striking and extravagant Silver Pagoda that has five tons of silver making for the floor. The dramatic architecture also uses Italian marble, life - sized gold Buddha decorated with diamonds -9584 of them; as well as bronze statues.
Cambodia’s second largest city is Battambang. A visit is said to offer a glimpse to the “real Cambodian life” with nearly 100,000 inhabitants and tourists swarming to see the ruins of Cambodia’s past. The city houses an 11th century Hindu temple, built by Suryavarman I.
The Benteay Srey (women’s citadel), another tenth century Hindu temple is well preserved, stunning for its miniature detailing on red sandstone.
Phnom Penh is the destination for a taste of Cambodia’s urban life. The city is the capital of Cambodia, and the heart of its economy as well as industry. A beautiful, French- built city, given that Cambodia has a history of French colonisation, Phnom Penh was once called “the pearl of Asia.” To top it all, it houses the wealthiest and most influential crowd of Cambodia, and is also the most populated.
Apart from shopping and dwelling in urban pleasures, Phnom Penh offers a unique experience of Cambodia’s bloody past, in the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. The museum was a former high school that was once a notorious security prison during the Khmer Rouge regime. Visitors get to see school rooms that were divided into crude cells to torture prisoners, tools of persecution and cabinets filled with human skulls. Some of the exhibits are gory, and considered not appropriate for the faint hearted.
The most pleasant part of a Cambodian tour is perhaps the trip to the floating markets of Mekong Delta and Cai Be.

Yes - Siem Reap town and AngkorWat area is very attractive to me in every corner. It is the world class tourist town - very safe.
.
You choose the right Hotel - Tara Angkor which is a little bit far away from the night market and Pubstreet... but with $1 tuk tuk will bring you everywhere.
.
1. Cultural Village -$8 all day show from 8am - 8pm. This is where you will enjoy many show. You will be in there like the kid in the Disneyland. YOu will enjoy all kind of shows about Khmer cultures, Khmer ethnic culture, and many stories of Angkor and Khmer Empire...etc
.
2. After a long day walk at Angkor complex, there the Night Market is fun for you to walk around. There are lots of suvernirs/gift stuffs with really good price. At night, you will be still in short and lots of beautiful people from everywhere on earth. There are two night markets - one on each side of the Steung (river) Siem Reap.
.
3. Of course, you won't want to miss the AngkorWat and the surrounding castles. To learn more details about all the Angkor Complex and castle, you will need at least one week there, but you can always come back.
.
4. Pub Street is a five minute walk from the night markets, where the commotion is. Exotic restaurants around there with big screen TV of US team basket ball and football show. The best night of all is new year night. You can enjoy all kinds of food and drink here. I love the local fresh fragrant coco and/or sugar cane drink alot there, after the long day walk at Angkor Complex, and of course it got to be cold. ahahhaha ... and you can get a nice $5 foot/back massage.
.
4. For the evening tour, ask the local for where is the Street 64 where you will enjoy with and how those local Khmer enjoy the evening with family, love one, mistresses .... etc. Hey, I went there too. Lots of food and small huts selling almost everything.... just for the evening.
.
5. what else? ask locals there. or you can get map and prochures from the information place. You will have fun, and it will worth your money of your lifetime. People are very nice. Most Khmer man like me are cool....ahhahahaha.
.
I will be there too the whole summer after my kids off school.
.
Make sure ask for blessing from temples.
.
Enjoy and have a safe trip there.

Let see, I was a little bored so, I went to Vietnam forum to bash the South Vietnamese folks. LoL.

You guys think I was hard on your folks? That's nothing compared to my bashing on the South Vietnamese.

One more thing. I have the ability to solve any logic puzzle (you folks should try to find something I cannot solve). Now I gain a new ability recently. For some logic puzzles, I might be able to solve them even I only read half of the puzzles. Which also means I can alter and/or create new puzzles as I see fit.

Let put it this way. Some puzzles are not in the monolithic form. I can trim the input to still get to the exact original intended specific solutions. That's German superiority.
