The United Nations has provided Pol Pot's vehicle of return. Although the Khmer Rouge government ceased to exist in January 1979, its representatives continued to occupy Cambodia's seat at the United Nations. Their right to do so was defended and promoted by the United States as part of their new alliance with China (Pol Pot's principal underwriter and Vietnam's ancient foe), their cold war with the Soviet Union and their revenge on Vietnam.

In 1981 President Carter's national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, said,'I encouraged the Chinese to support Pol Pot.' The United States, he added,'winked publicly' as China sent arms to the Khmer Rouge through Thailand. By January 1980, the United States had begun secretly funding Pol Pot.

The extent of this support -$85 million from 1980 to 1986 - was revealed six years later in correspondence between Congressional lawyer Jonathan Winer, counsel to a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation. Winer said the information had come from the Congressional Research Service.

k
New evidence from US government documents, declassified in 1987, leaves no doubt that the bombing of Cambodia caused such widespread death and devastation that it was critical in Pol Pot's drive for power... What Nixon and Kissinger began, Pol Pot completed.

Good description of the friendless, backwards, dying Chinese Communist Party regime!

Now, time to wring that CCP chicken's neck, so all China can enjoy a FEAST of FREEDOM!

Not at all. In fact he was a very strret smart prick. His real age is only 30somethings but in his paper, it said he was 68years old. He is currently residing in UK Government Nursing home with free...everything. YET, every bath time, he always needs help from young, hot nurses there. One more thing ab Nursing Home he is notorious that, he always trips on something when get out of bath in bare ass. Wahahahahahha!

Last week I gave the Philippines a very simple and effective advise in defense against China. Forget about building up the Air Force, the Navy. It will cost a lot of money to buy planes, warships, train pilots, sailors.

Just buy a lot of cruise missiles. Train one good crew to operate these missiles. This missile force will be a very good deterrence force against China.

In fact, with a lot of cruise missiles, USA can sneak in a few good crew to help. China has no way to find out who are actually at the control room programming the cruise missiles attack coordinates, profile and timing. USA can also feed superior electronics guidance and ECM, ECCM warfare to help from behind in covert action.

Anyway, I got this idea from watching how Vietnam is dealing with their East Sea. Vietnam is handling it correctly by building their own cruise missile factory!!! I could not have done any better.

Cambodia should follow Vietnam's lead and get cruise missile if Cambodia wants to contest Thailand over the hundred of billion dollars in the oil dispute!

It is sad but true, the Chinese have bought and bribed the gov'ts around the Eastern China and the South China Seas, notice they are giving in to China. China did not even fired a single shot--money conquers.

It is more sad but so true, the America has bought and bribed the gov'ts surrounding China. Notice that they are ganging up against China. America did not even have to fire any shot against China, let others countries do it.

ALSO NOTICE SNOWFAKE'S BAD ENGLISH. HE HAS BEEN PRETEND TO BE AN AMERICAN WHITE, THEN SNEAKILY POSTED IN PRO-CHINA.

That's why Chinese are viewed as treacherous, foxy, scheming, evil around the world. 20 some years ago the Indonesian people rose up and attacked the Chinese in mass.

I, on the other hand, a Chinese born with a gene flip to be honest, frank and direct like the superior Germans.

LoL at Snowfake, the self-claim to be an American White. Look at the word "fired" in his sentence. You do not say, "did not even fired". The correct syntax is: "did not even fire".

Look at his first sentence. It's such bad English, befitting only to a Chinese immigrant.
