Vietnam seized the oportunity to liberated Cambodia based on genocidal against humanity by the Khmer Rouge, but it was in fact, that Vietnam has betrayed China and joined COMECON in early 1978, by December 1978 Vietnam got the OK from former Soviet to invade Cambodia. There was never any good intention from Vietnam to save Cambodia and its people nor the January 7th, 1979 claimed by the current government was the importance key to liberate Cambodia from the Holocaust.This article is op-ed from the forum
Ho Chi Minh had a dream to one day conquor Laos and Cambodia within 100 years. This dream of his has already been indoctrinated to each and every Vietnamese. Indochina Federation was an idea stolen from the French during the 1832 French Protectorate and it is known as French Indochina.
Ho Chi Minh believes that after World War II that he must do everything within his power to take Vietnam under his control and reunify his country into one nation and that was exactly what Ho Chi Minh has done. By the time France realized it is already too late, but no matter whatever the challenge presents to France might be, France will have to go to war against Vietnam in order to take back Vietnam and place it under their countrol. Because of this reason and this reason alone, the War of Dien Bien Phu came into the picture.
Ho Chi Minh only sees one way out from this hegemonized by the French, therefore, Ho Chi Minh went all over Asia recruting communist members and convinced them to fight with Vietnam for the purpose of pure Independence in Southeast Asia. That is how former Khmer Issarak members joined in the revolution with Ho Chi Minh and became known as Kampuchea Communist Party or (KCP). Vietnam and its agents have never respect those former KCP fighters as people, but as subject or slaves. If you really wanted to know, Sihanouk should be a prime example of how he has been betrayed by Pham Van Dung not to mention Ho Chi Minh.
During the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia on April 17th, 1975, it was not a war fought by Khmer Rough, but a war fought by Vietnamese at the front line and when it is liberated, Vietnamese Commanders sent in the Khmer Rouge just for a show in order to manipulated Khmer people. Once everything fall into places Pol Pot who was also know as Saloth Sar changed his policy right away to chase out Vietnamese and its agents from Cambodia. This created a bad atmosphere between Khmer Rouge and Vietnam. But Vietnam knew that they had been used by the Khmer Rouge, however, Vietnam did get to reunify their own country, but continue to fight Khmer Rouge from behind the scene.
Within those time to which Cambodia was under Khmer Rouge control, argument began to stir around the country due to Vietnam relentlessly fighting with Khmer Rouge to put pressure on the Khmer Rouge to negotiate about the border dispute between Kampuchea and Vietnam, but Khmer Rouge has always rejected the idea of negotiating with Vietnam. Vietnam seized the oportunity to liberated Cambodia based on genocidal against humanity by the Khmer Rouge, but it was in fact, that Vietnam has betrayed China and joined COMECON in early 1978, by December 1978 Vietnam got the OK from former Soviet to invade Cambodia. There was never any good intention from Vietnam to save Cambodia and its people nor the January 7th, 1979 claimed by the current government was the importance key to liberate Cambodia from the Holocaust. It was all a coincidence that we are all alive today.
In August 1979 I was in Phnom Penh and there was no Cambodian military body, but all were sent from Vietnam to reap in all what Cambodia has stored away by the Khmer Rouge during those three years, eight months and twentyone day. There were many trucks travelling east to Vietnam within the trucks were full of Cambodia belongings. Until this day, the celebration of January 7th, 1979 was never a day for remembrance, but the day when Vietnam invaded Cambodia.
