...I was ex-Vietnamese voluntary soldier in Cambodia then was captured later by Polpot Forces and reluctantly served in Polpot Troops along Thai border of 1980. I witnessed myself so many crimes caused by Polpot Troops against their own Khmer civilians. Those Khmer female smugglers who crossing Thai border were subjects to be raped or killed in every single day and anytime. Too bad, those people had no choice to make their living during war time when Vietnamese Forces were there to oust Khmer Rouge....Along the dirt trails of Thai-Cam border, hundreds of Khmer civilians, old and young, even little ones with bare-feet trailing behind hundreds of ox-carts toward Thailand and coming back to Cambodia a few days later. Now and then, Polpot Troops who controlled the smuggling routes would pull aside women to rape them right beside the road. Some got killed for fighting back...Bob was there, in Polpot Uniform, sitting in a plastic hammock, just looking to the fact and turned away when murders happend. What could I do when myself was prisoner by them? Luckily, not long in Khmer Rouge hands, US Agents rescued me from them, put me behind a motorcycle with Para Troops escorts...A group of 25 armed men on 15 motor-cycles or so, riding toward Thai checkpoint at border. Thankyou Americans....

... Again, along Thai-Kampuchean border in ...the old days of BOB..Now and then, some one mistook me for a Khmer Krom, others mistook me as...Thai. When I worked with American on Thai territory, I travelled back and forth b/t Thailand and Khmer Resistance strongholds which include Polpot bases. In fact, I spoke Thai, Khmer, Vietnamese , American and...a little French but I am pure Vietnamese with North Vietnamese parents. Always proud myself as...a "lucthum coongtop Vietnam"...Toi la si quan Quan Doi Nhan Dan Vietnam.....The end!
