KImedia discussion

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

It can go either way... they can often be biased for/against a country without being a citizen. Look how many foreign "experts" there are on US foreign policy who do so with bias one direction or the other.

See. ;-)

And you'll note I said it goes both ways. Some foreign reports are in support of our actions as well.

I guess Aussie foreign policy stinks too then. Didn't you have troops in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq?

And some of those recent comments on that site mentioned in the OP seem to have nothing at all to do with anger over the article. Sounds like someone has a definite ax to grind with the author? Shades of Morrish?

I think everyone had the right to look into and discuss anything they please, regardless of where they live or are from, including and especially politics.

The Cambodians should be glad a foreigner is so interested in these topics that they spend their time pursuing it.

I don't think he's trying to vote on it or anything.

I read both articles, and both authors seem to agree that Cambodia stands no chance in any court over the matter.

And for the record, I just breezed through them, as I'm not very familiar with any of the story.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

I agree. Australia's foreign policy sucks too. In fact, if Australia had a comparable military to the US we'd have a much worse foreign policy. Especially with that nut job Abbott at the helm.

Anyone with some insights on who is writing and commenting on KiMedia or Khmerization? Why are they writing in English?

Because most of them are Khmericans who can't read Khmer.

There wouldn't be much written history at all, and none on Cambodia, if only nationals of a country were allowed to write it.
