Here are the facts. Read them.
"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.

I've learned a simple lesson from the superior German Americans: there are certain things which is UTTERLY wrong. Thou shall not do. Thou shall never do. There will be no excuse.

So, when the Khmer Rouges murdered other people, that's is UTTERLY wrong. Thou shall not do. Thou shall never do. There will be no excuse.

No matter how you try to spin it, we know there are the Khmer Rouges who would butchered the unarmed, defenseless villagers. That's all I need to know.

If I go into a battle field, I would have no problem in carrying out my duties, firing guns at my enemies who are also armed. It's the unfortunate fact of war. But I will never fire at someone who are unarmed, defenseless, out of the action. That's just UTTERLY wrong.

I have a concern that some Khmer people exhibit a lower level of humanity on the forum. I can see why the Viets tried to make them a bit more civilized.

Hun Sen is the best Cambodia can get now. His son is disciplined studied well with doctorate degrees. He is not a party boy but a hard working officer for the army. And if that is not enough then let the Viets rule Cambodia instead.

You got a good point. Every country struggles for their own benefits and needs, so why blame China.

All I am said is the corruption and the power is a root cause to all country problem.

The only good option for Cambodia, be real democracy and independence from other country is to stop begging. Start learning the skills whatever she needs. Stop counting on the others for help politically and economically, then everything will be clear and clean.

Idiot! All killing is wrong, no matter in the battlefield or on innocent unarmed people.

You should also go back to teach your superior German American parents what I siad above.

Everyone should know a plain simple fact: Khmer Rouges were toppled and China were trying to restore Khmer Rouges back to power.

Everyone should observe a plain simple fact: Khmer Rouges were evil and guilty; but there are some who are trying to defend Khmer Rouges.
