Pol Pot is an abbreviation of the English word "Political Potential"; such is the political nickname of ex-Saloth Sar that Hanoi and China allotted to him. He was a personal selected by Hanoi and China to replace Soeung Ngok Minh and Tout Sa Mut, which had just disappeared under a mysterious condition. From the origin point of view, Pol Pot was nothing Vietnamese, but for the point of view of policy and profile, Pol Pot served incontestably, the interest of Vietnamese.

Born in Prek Sbauv (Kompong Thom) in May 19, 1928, he descended from a comfort farming family. He was the eighth child of a sino-khmer family (half-caste Chinese).

His family entered in the chronicle royal history since 1925, when his aunt (? Cousin) Khun Meak, a royal ballet dancer became a concubine of king Monivong. From this alliance will be born the princess Khun Yeap who will become the last concubine of king Suramarith and mother of prince Sirivutdh. Later, the elder brother (? Uncle) of Saloth Sar, named Saloth Suong became a important employee in the royal palate - He married in 1940 with a dancer of the palate, named Chea Samy. Later, Saroeun, a sister of Sar, a dancer, became a concubine of king Monivong too.

Between 1934-35, the parents of Sar sent him to live at Phnom Penh with his brother and his sister-in-law, Saloth Suong and Chea Samy.

As a teenager, Saloth Sar often worked in the farm and had fact followed teaching Buddhism to become monk. During World War II, Pol Pot joined the anti-French resistance movement of Ho Chi Minh. By 1946, he was a member of the underground Indochinese Communist Party, and in 1949, he won a scholarship to study radio electronics in Paris (Jrgen Wouters ABCNEWS.com) One he reached Paris, Pol Pot joined to the French party communism which one Ho Chi Minh was a founder member. When his return to Cambodia in 1953 without a qualification in hand, he has joined in the Revolutionary Party of Kampuchea and taught the history and geography in a private school "Kampuchaboth " and wrote many articles for the left newspaper. In her book "Who is Angkar" Mrs Kim Thy Ouy named POl Pot as an adept and tool of Ho Chi Minh, the same rank as Tout Sa muth or Achar Sok.

In his article for " For Cambodia freedom" Dr Baphoun reported that; during fifties Pol Pot worked in the rank of Khmero-Vietminh under the directive of a Khmero-Vietmihn leader named "Thab Ngeng" who named Ppl Pot to control over 3000 men in 1957.

In 1954, when the Frenchs left Indo-China, they have appointed Sihanouk on the throne, but Saloth Sar is opposite. He founded 1960 the congresses of the Kampuchea Communist Party. In 1963, he was elected central secretary of committee of the Communist Party Kampuchea. Feared from reprisals of king Sihanouk, the members of the Kampuchea Communist Party refuges in the forests where they met the guerrilla of Khmer Rouge party. In decade 60, the USA reinforced its military campaigns to destroy the Vietnamese Communist Party of H Chi Hinh, but as of decade 70 the war was devastated until the territorial Cambodia where the USA suspected of being hidden the Vietnamese communist forces and which was the case. at January 1968 Mr Chester Bowles Ambassador of USA in India come to meet Sihanouk to have his accord to clean Vietcong sanctuaries on Khmer territory. This accord followed up by two years of massive bombarding to clean up the Vietcong from Cambodia.

Resounding to this policy; even after having support the Vietcong to installed their numerous sanctuaries over Cambodian land ; at Mai 29 1969, Sihanouk regrouped all the media for a press conferring to denounce Vietcong present on Khmer territory. But later Sihanouk changed one more time his position and accepted definitively to help Vietcong and the movement Khmero-yuon followed by a fierce anti-American policy (Article published by Amekhmer Feb 14 2005)

April 17, 1975 , Phnom Penh was fallen in the hand of Khmer Rouge. The reception was however cordial to the odd liberators. Many Cambodians left in the street to acclaim the winners. The white flags floated everywhere. But these strange liberators became suddenly firm, cruel and incomprehensible. The threatening noises of the microphones required the evacuation immediate of the inhabitants of Phnom-Penh from their houses - Those who opposed to this order were immediately killed at once on the spot, it is then, how the hell of the killing field began. In three 3 years 8 months and 20 days, at last 30-45% of the Khmer population were perished, either of massacre, or of programmed famine, of disease, or of tortures
January 7, 1979 when Vietnam invaded Cambodia , there remained about 4 million inhabitants on 7 millions (before the event of April 17 1975 ) The majority of the streets and the villages were almost deserted and one was happy to meet a compatriot survival.

Early of 1979, the first official estimation risen a frightening result - They estimated that more than three million of Cambodian were perished between 1975-1979, but at once this total was unceasingly contradicted. The reason was obvious; the demographic rate raised a suspect incredible risen of the population of Cambodia . In order to justify this doubtful increase, the government of Hun SEN must reduce the number of Khmer deaths to cool down of national opinion around the mass floods of Viet migrants.
To understand the ampler of this disaster mass migration, it is necessary to go in the districts along the length of the river Tonl Basak such as Chba Am-Poe, Kbal Thnal etc in all the other Khmer popular capitals to see the mass of Vietnamese immigrants freely settled in Cambodia with the active cooperation of the government puppet CPP since the official occupation of Vietnamese in 1979.

But what is even more scandalous, is that many of them were not the simple population but they were active martyrs or sleeping agent of Hanoi . They are discrete, and very organised. They are there to control every activity of Khmer people in society. Any suspicious activity or displaced verbal, one will be immediately convoked, questioned and often remove specially the men. And since the existence of the election in Cambodian, many are the Vietnamese who are imported by the cool vietnamisation system to support the government in place. Some of them have infiltrated in the heart of the Khmer political system since long time ago or they were sent, designed by Hanoi to occupy the high function in Khmer society and to control its puppets.

In his article reveals Victims of communism today Mike Benge revealed a terrible method of Viet expansionist tactic : Amoeba-like, communist Vietnam is slowly neo-colonizing Laos and Cambodia by the traditional Vietnamese expansionism termed Don Dien, first by occupying territory with troops, then having their families come in to settle the new territory, then putting the troops into civilian clothes to become "ready reservists" and replacing them with new troops for further expansion

All was prepared, all was set up to trapped the Cambodian people, the least details were meticulously studied, organized and programmed including the scene of the hostility of Pol Pot against Hanoi.

In April 1975 and April 1977, Pol Pot hided and saved not less than 20000 of Vietnamese from the massacre to Vietnam . Pol.-Pot had gathered them and taken them safety to Vietnam . The scene was however perfect - Pol Pot leaded a hostile policy with his old Master and has even killed some of them, a well astonishing way to thanks an old Master whom he always submitted, admired and maintained of the underground relations more than suspect.

We wonders, if Pol Pot was really hostile with Vietnamese as many pro-viet people what to make it appear why he did not massacre all those Viets instead he saved them from the massacre and brought them out of danger while the Angkar leu killed millions of Khmer people.

More shocking, while Vietnam took officially took over Cambodia , those Viets were at one imported back to Cambodia , some occupied the high function in the government and others continue to be activists and Viet sleeping agents.... In a press conference whole a Cambodian asked why there are too many of the Vietnamese came freely to Cambodia , Hun SEN answers they are the Vietnamese evacuated in year 1975 and 1979 and they are back to Cambodia

And what is even more conspicuous is that, during his reign, Pol Pot ordered to gather, collect all the richness of Cambodia and stored by categories in the many surest stocks in Phnom Penh - And when the Vietnamese arrived at 1979 in Phnom-Penh, they knew exactly where all these ammunition were hided and they have nothing to do else than to transport it to Vietnam, by boats, plane, trucks (especially on national I) A mass operation of emptying of Cambodia richness that took appearance of a mass national burglary which goes from simple material of recovery, pieces of metal, diverse machines, exchanging pieces, perfume, until the Khmer cultural inheritance, such as the old low-relief or statutes or the gold from the national Cambodian bank (red bank Bank Krohorm)Etc. But those are not the only that Vietnamese plundered Cambodia in 1979, millions tones of humanitarian aids from International community intended for Cambodians who were dying of hunger, of all kind of sickness and poverty were all plundered by Hanoi - all those ammunition were indeed stationed at Kompong Som port for registration then they are all left for Vietnam.. Cambodian did received nothing and needed to survive with the collated average. The rice was yet so expensive and necessary.

According to Franois Ponchaud, author of "Year zero ", the pillage of Cambodia started as soon as when Khmer rouge arrived in Phnom-Pehn, but this author portrayed this operation as cleaning of the occidental symbol by the Khmer rouge. Then if Khmer Rouge wanted to empty the so-called occidental symbol do they need to automatically empty it in Vietnam ?!!!!!!!

Whatever let quote " You Kim Lanh, referred to above, testifies some: " I remained one month in Phnom Penh to work for the Khmer Rouges. I was to excavate all the houses and to collect remained the rice there, to store the drugs coming from various pharmacies. We charged all that in boats whose crew was Vietnamese. Time with other, a fire burst downtown, but we did not do anything to extinguish it. Sometimes, the Khmer Rouges made us demolish the houses out of wooden, then to put the beams and the boards in heap."

Yeri Savannary, professor, taken refuge in Thailand about 15.10.1975, confirm the preceding account indirectly: " From the end April, of the trucks made ceaseless rotations on the road "National 1" driving to Saigon; they transported the television-radio, motor bikes, cycles of all marks, bicycles, drugs packed up and weapons of all categories. Close to Neak Luong, approximately two hundred vehicles waited to cross the Mekong ; there was in particular of Mercds and the 404. There were also three or four guns of 105 mm and three trucks of drugs. The whole apparently left for Vietnam . "

Lao Bun Thai, mechanic, vingt-trois years, taken refuge in October 1975, have worked until May 15 in Phnom Penh , confirmed : I saw, of my own eyes, several trucks, filled to the brim with books, to pass in front of the embassy of France and to gain north indeed. I also saw burning on the lawn volumes of the library of the cathedral. The library of the French School of the Far East , located at a few hundred meters of the embassy underwent a fate similar on May 5 in morning. It did not contain much any more of treasures, because essence had been put in safety in France ( It is important to emphasize that the destruction of human or material resource which are the symbols of Khmer is a part of Vietnamese expansionist tactic because cultural historical and human resource removed mean extinction of a human race and all its culture to be replace by a new one )

Several refugees crossed Phnom Penh last months (1975) they estimate that the city hardly counts more than 20 000 inhabitants, including only Khmer Rouges and their families. The workmen lived in the peripheral districts, close to their factories, but cannot enter in the downtown. The unmarried Khmer Rouges are grouped: the boys lived on a side of the street, the girls of the other. Various ministries of the government revolutionary personnel are reduced to the bare minimum; the majority, do not even have offices.

The few diplomats of accredited socialist countries with Phnom Penh find the life hard: they cannot leave their embassy. Three times per day, a jeep bring the meal to them; they have any distraction, no personnel with their service, have to wash themselves their linen, etc " Every two weeks, Friday, a plane of the Chinese CCAC makes its possible to the foreign diplomat to take a bowl of air and freedom in Peking... Since September 1976, they can also use the new air line connecting Phnom Penh to Hanoi . Only one newspaper in Khmer language of four pages, Padvath (Revolution), appears every fifteen and diffused only the news conceiving the construction of the country. And those who live in the East, the border Vietnamese, often saw the numerous planes making its back and forth from Cambodia to Vietnam and inversely.

At December 9, 1978 to December 23, 1978 , the few journalists, Mrs Elizabeth BECKER, author of book "Tear of Kampuchea" and her two other colleges, Richard DZIMAN and Malcolm CALD WELL , were invited to Phnom-Penh. They were accompanied to visit Toul-Sleng, but as Mrs Elizabeth BECKER saw the register of the prisoners, she was very surprised to see the names of the leaders of the Communist Party Kampuchea who were also imprisoned, tortured, forced to confess then massacred. In May 1977, 400 Khmers Rouge were captures and sent to Toul Sleng, they were been forced to confess as the Vietnamese agents secretes - The visit of Mrs Elizabeth and her colleges ended by the assassination of the Malcolm CALD WELL at December 22, 1978 in his hotel in Phnom-Penh. This mysterious assassination of May be Malcolm CALD WELL followed after his meeting with Pol Pot. He probably saw what one should not want him to see, and which quicken besides the departure of Elizabeth BECKER and Richard DZIMAN.

Pol Pot was not a pupil shining but he was a pleasant and correct companion, nothing to see with the dictator of a horrible genocide regime which he directed. All his life turned around a horrible myth and mystery. He was a most mysterious man on earth. Everything happened in his life is about mystery. His behaviours whatever policies or relational remain thus unintelligible and contradictory. For many, Pol Pot is of a radical nationalist and xenophobe, especially with Vietnamese. But in reality and incontestably, Pol Pot served the Vietnamese expansionist policy in Cambodia and this until his last breath.

Why decided to join Khmero-Vietminh movement to save Vietnamese expansionist policy? Was he been manipulated by Hanoi ? Which are the promises that he obtained and concluded with Hanoi for his role?

According to David P. Chandler, Hanoi seemed to grant the cordial confidence to Pol Pot. This secrecy remains total until now, however these mysteries could be to clear up if Pol Pot would have been judged and questioned by the International Court . We supposed that Pol Pot has probably concluded many accords with the Vietnamese leaders. Many Khmer rouge leaders of pronounced that Vietnamese never respected its engagement and promise but what kind of promise then? In an interview accorded to ABC Pol Pot even revealed "Hitler killed the Jewish and those who opposed to him but the Vietnamese killed those who opposed to them and the innocents who refused to join them (Pol Pot)

But all is doubtful, including the behaviour of international community. But who they tried to protect if not the victims of the genocide? Which is the application of UNO in this crime?

Logically if Pol Pot is a Khmer, a Khmer nationalist, he has no interest to serve Hanoi, neither on the religious level, nor on the ethnic level and even less on the relational level, because Vietnam and Cambodia was always the hereditary foes " number one since centuries. But Pol Pot did, contrary of what he claimed.

Looked at them, these few peoples can destroy the lives of a whole country

Pol Pot (Saloth Sar), sino-khmer, ex-associate of Yuon Hanoi, 3 million dead among the civil innocent. Manipulated or misled, he will always the responsible of the genocide on the Khmer people.

Hun Sen, current associate of Yuon Hanoi. A simple replaced piece of Hanoi after Hanoi had withdrew away the old tool Pol Pot . In 23 years of the power, Hun sen/CPP transfoms Cambodia into a kingdom of misery and chaos. Whether there is no more mass killing as in Pol Pot time but the indirect kills are numerous and disaster.

Ta Mok, a simple killing tool............. His kind is numerous in Cambodia
We may believe in freedom a deceiving deception it is free only when a nation called for an election of it parliament once in power -people are enslaved it is nothing.
