IRI has already confirmed about the people's frustration in their survey regarding border demarcation and border-line complicate agreement with Vietnam in 2005. CPP has tried their best to console the spirit and soul of Cambodian people not to frustrate about the irregularity of border demarcation with Vietnam, but CPP has experienced hard time to hide this large dead elephant with such a small basket
Op-Ed: Khmer Young
It seems like Hun Sen is so nationalistic in his mission to visit Preah Vihear and border land with Thailand. His performance is in a right time, right place and right propaganda. While Cambodian people are turning 90 degree of their eyes to the East, Hun Sen, Hor Namhong and their actors are drawing attention at the West. Hor Namhong and Hun Sen have taken turn to visit Preah Vihear because they both realized that Sam Rainsy shot in the right spot of border encroachment by Vietnam at the East. IRI has already confirmed about the people's frustration in their survey regarding border demarcation and border-line complicate agreement with Vietnam in 2005. CPP has tried their best to console the spirit and soul of Cambodian people not to frustrate about the irregularity of border demarcation with Vietnam, but CPP has experienced hard time to hide this large dead elephant with such a small basket.
Listening the respond of Hor Namhong with RFI today, he cruelly rebutted Sam Rainsy with slur language about his act in uprooting the border posts, but he dare not eleborate in detail the interest of the nation in protecting the border. He aggressively accused Sam Rainsy politically acted but Hor Namhong dare not describe the cause leading to this act of Sam Rainsy.
Of course, it is easy to understand. Because of 90 seats in the assembly of the CPP and the control every thing as well as consolidation power entirely, Sam Rainsy could not play as an eternal alibi, he has to do something to confront with this deadly planning of the CPP. CPP has absolutely cornered all dissents, critics and the oppositions.
However, we do accept that, the act of Sam Rainsy occured without having a proper plan. He seems acted it right the way via his instinct without weighting the consequences.
But it is still not worse because the farmers have full rights to uproot any markers inside their land. In the meantime, the markers did put by Vietnames authority without having consensus by Cambodia counterpart. But after Sam Rainsy uprooted the posts numbered 185, Vietnam subsequently uprooted another 3 posts, according to the local villagers who supported the SRP. The reaction of the government to try Sam Rainsy, Prak Chea and Meas Srey is very bad for Cambodia history. Why it is so bad? Because no page of Cambodian history that Cambodian people have been jailed by their own government because of their bravery to protect their territory land.
Let pray for the CPP, Hun Sen and Hor Namhong whose mission to the West and Preah Vihear can change the mind of Cambodian people from frustrating to the East, and the trial of 3 Cambodian nationalists who stand up to protect their land at the East.
