Subject: RE: Cambodia - an April Fool's democracy
This is by far the most accurate account of Cambodia's fake democracy and how it came to be that I have ever read. Thank God someone finally got it right.
As someone who was there in !993 and who continues to work for a democratic Cambodia I feel the article describes in stunning honesty Hun Sen's almost complete takeover of the country. What makes it worse is the international community's endorsement of his actions. He now has it boths ways: a totally rigged election system and an almost complete immplementation of a true communist state.
What a tragedy. What a shame. It is heartbreaking.
