It's about time (sarcasm)... What is truly sad is that as Americans we are losing our freedoms as well. Maybe not to that magnitude, but eventually, who knows? America = Police State.

Shades of Khmer Rouge manifesting itself in yet more cultural correctness? First, kill all the intellectuals....

Um, it's Karaoke. That's like saying - start with N*SYNC.

Um, it's Karaoke. That part is funny, but for those unfamiliar with Hun Sen, please be informed that he is a mass murderer and worse.If Cambodia had oil reserves we would have killed him long ago.

...it's probably worth pointing out that a significant number of the establishments to be destroyed (assuming anyone carries out the "order") are brothels. The vicinity of Phnom Penh is crawling with them.

The cynic in me says they're probably brothels owned by people that don't pay protection fees, and that's the "vice" that bothers Hun Sen.

I had no idea things were this fucked up in Cambodia at the moment.

Anyone have decent links to more detail on the backstory (recent, I mean) to this new craziness? I suspect aramaic is right, though.

There's a pub near me that could do with a visit from that tank!

On a more serious note, its amazing what goes on in the world when the world is concentrating on somewhere (and someone) else.

"Anyone have decent links to more detail on the backstory (recent, I mean) to this new craziness?" this was discussed in an earlier thread. "pay protection fees, and that's the "vice" that bothers Hun Sen" that is small peanut stuff. Hun Sen was a communist. If hes on the graf, it wont be tittie bars."please be informed that he is a mass murderer and worse" please, what is worse then that. that article is biased to a degree. im no fan of kiernan but other then chandler and a few others, no westener knows more about DK then he. No doubt brother hun has killed.the K5 "plan"is a joke. If we hate hun sen so bad, why did we let his son go to west pointe? also, if one has to pay protection...PAY IT or face the tank. that is common sense.
