Cambodia need a strong ally like China to protect herself from Thailand and Vietnam invaders!

I wouldn't try the American with their secret bombing of Cambodia countryside prior to 1970 which cause thousands of death and caused the raise of Pol Pot. And as if it wasn't enough, the US organised the 1970 coup which overthrown King Sihanouk when he was visiting China. If I want to blame what caused the suffering of Cambodia, I will blame the so called World Policeman - USA! The warmanger of the world!!!

Oh Cambodian brothers! Oh Cambodian brothers! More than 6 centuries have passed since the down fall of Khmer Empire, a simple lesson yet not learned.

I totally agreed with you The Kner.
I will joint with who ever can protect me and give me freedom and improve the livelihood of my Cambodian people. It is time we can live a normal live just like our neighboring countries. With the help with no string attached from China, we now have better roads, bridges, more electricity for our economy to grow, more investments are coming in, more tourists are coming to visit our peaceful yet beautiful people and country, a real freeway is being built now from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap with the help from
China. I have been living in Las Vegas for almost 40 years but I still like my country-Cambodia. I am so happy to see what has been happening in Cambodia. Keep up the good work

It is hard to believe that China still continue to support friendship with very poor Cambodia.
As a Cambodian i love to see this help.
Many country like UK USA France do not see any interest with Cambodia at all.
Thank China for you support My poor Cambodia.

Cambodia history is full of proxy wars. One could not helps but wonder when the next one will be. Is Cambodia anxiously looking for one? The sad thing is each war pulls Cambodia 20-30 years backward in term of development.

Thailand wants to invade and claim part of Northern Cambodia belong to them, American is helping the Thai with F-15 and their arm force. Chinese is helping Cambodian with better equipment and train Cambodian's arm force to balance Northern Cambodian conflict.
Who is Cambodians truth friend, or real enemy?

But China is also contracted by Thailand last year to design better cluster ammo for artillery. Thailand used cluster ammo in their 155mm artillery against Cambodia in 2011 border skirmishes.(It's against the Geneva's convention too.)

Have the Khmer turned stupid now day to side with China?

Good for you & best of lucks to all Khmer. But tell Angkor to wake up. Seem like the man gotten a good heart but his head is off sometimes. He's represented what a lot of misguided Khmer today.
