Please revisit this interesting topic to discuss. Nuon Chea, the EX-KHMER ROUGE brother #2, has been speaking out the truth in the UN court since yesterday with the event that took place BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER to what had happened between 1975 to 1979. Like I have been suspecting since day one of the VIETNAMESE's INVASION in CAMBODIA. The world will hear and see the truth. I hope and pray that the KHMER ROUGE responsible for 1.7 million deaths. Otherwise, the UN COURT will reverse the CASE and the CPP and its BOSS, VIET, will have to find the place to HIDE.

I was in the labor team with other Cambodians and listened to many stories during 1975 to 1989. Here are the fundamentals:

1. Each local Khmer Rouge leaders had no clear directions. In most cases, they had absolute power, authority, thus the corruption was incredible, especially, most of them were so uneducated with no morale standard to guide them.

You and your family could die if your son was in love with the same girl the son of the village chief was after. You make a slight mistake on the day the chief had a bad mood, you die.

2. The North Vietnamese Commanders were instructed by the Vietnam government to do their utmost to charm the local Khmer people. They intended to keep the country to absorb it into Vietnam. It's always the Vietnam Communists' doctrine to start at the people.

The North Vietnamese commanders were poor, hard working, very disciplined. They were fair and square. Thus they became the true guardians to the Cambodian people. Since they did not speak Khmer, it's nearly impossible to bribe them without interpreters. When the Cambodian people had disputes, they used to dare each other to swear to God for the truth, but then they switched to daring each other to see the North Vietnamese commanders for judgement.

Some smart Cambodians in my labor team were so worried that Cambodia would disappear but then suddenly Vietnam decided to pull out. Without the international pressure, Cambodia would have been swallowed up as the North Vietnamese commanders were winning the hearts and minds of the people. They gave better protection, fair and square judgement than any Cambodian government before. They cannot be bribed, they cannot be corrupted.

In fact, once a while, the North Vietnamese commanders would make a little public relation by executing some South Vietnamese soldiers who committed horrific crimes to the people. Other time, they invited the Cambodian elders to witness the caning of those bad South Vietnamese pests.

3. My Cambodian team mates even claimed they can distinguish the accent of the Vietnamese soldiers and knew who to run toward for justice and protection. They said that the South Vietnamese soldiers were so bad while the North Vietnamese ones were so honorable and good.

Dap Chhuon surrendered to Sihanouk in 1959 by gave up his gun, but Sihanouk killed him because of his greed. Sihanouk is a fucking dog. Dap Chhuon was a true patriot if you know the real story. What your fathers had told you was not true. Those stories were made up by Sihanouk for everyone in the country to believe him.

A good point. Another easy answer for another obvious questions would be: "Who tried to prolong, and to restore the Cambodian killing fields?" -Answer: Sihanouk and China.
