In my opinion, he did nothing wrong in the protest. I remember reading a discourse where it mentions that the Buddha protested against animal killing. A king planned to massacre animals for a big feast. Upon hearing that, the Buddha carried a baby sheep on his shoulder and walked with people to where the king and his entourage gathered. The king bowed to the Buddha and the Buddha explained how it was wrong to kill animals. The king listened.

Similarly, monks are not supposed to be involved in any politics that promotes selfish benefits and personal gains. For the benefits of the whole, for the good cause of human rights, for the rights of the blameless and the harmless, monks may step in to provide guidance, just as the Buddha stepped in to help the harmless animals that cannot speak for themselves.

Monks are not to take side with any political party. Monks are not supposed to vote in any election. Monks are to abide by the 227 rules set out by the Buddha.

The weak one needs an army to protect him around the clock. But the strong one needs no army. His protection is his good deed.

At the end, good prevails over evil. It is just a matter of time.

Talking about killing, raping, murder, the Viet Cong communists committed crime against humanity, beside torturing dogs for tender meat.

Cambodia is like "shiit" but she is able to support the millions of Vietnamese refugees and illegal Vietnamese immigrants.

For that matter, Cambodia is richer, and better than the Viet Cong scumbags, I must say.
