If I am a fireman and see a Khmer house on fire, I would have along talk with the owner, "Well, what do you think? Would you label me as invasion of privacy? How long can I say in your house to extinguish all the flame?"
"Perhaps you only want me to put out the fire in the kitchen, then you put out the rest yourself?"
I can go on and on while watching the stupid house burn out. LoL @ the stupid Khmer buffaloes.
Yes, you got to have a permission from the owner before you can put down the fire. That's what 911 is all about. Simply, you misspelled the word in your sentence "stay", instead of "say".

It's not a misspell, it's a typo. I do that a lot, typing so fast.

January 7, 1979: was it "liberation" or "invasion" of Cambodia by the Vietnamese Arm Forces? This simple question has been a very divisive issue for many in Khmer community across Cambodia and overseas in the past 22 years. What is the correct answer? Was it "liberation" or was it "invasion" by Vietnam? The answer to this simple question can be very complicated.

Let me use an anology to answer this question.

Cambodia was like a beautiful girl who was kidnapped by the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge abused physically, mentally and sexually. One day the VCs broke into the house and kicked the Khmer Rouge out. But instead of returning her to proper authority or her parents and families, the VCs kept her against her will. The VCs raped her and abused her and even had kids with her against her will until the International Police chased the VCs back to their home. But before the VCs left, they married her off to their one-eyed cousin. Cambodia is now stuck with him. Cambodia is still waiting for her savior to come and rescued her from the VCs' cousin.

Wrong. Let me fix your analogy:

The VCs stayed to protect her from the Khmer Rouge lurking at Thailand's border. The VCs loved her and even had kids with her against her will until the International Politics force the VCs back to their home. But before the VCs left, they married her off to their next best protector. Cambodia is now doing fine with him.

Cambodia is now safe from Thailand or any Khmer Rouge wanna-bee with proven the VCs's bravery and power right next door.

I was told that the Khmer poors stopped swearing to God, Deities over disputes. They started to dare each other to settle the disputes in front of the superior North Vietnamese commanders who were known incorruptible, fair and sharp.

Btw, the beautiful girl was not that beautiful and she preferred the light-skin VCs over all Khmer men. LoL.
