The Chinese are in it for economic reason. The VN influence on the other hand affects the living of millions of poor Khmer in this country, read: Svay rieng, Phom penh, Kampot, Siem Reap...and its just on keeping expanding. Most of big decisions, the Khmer lapdogs need to consult their VN master for approval.

I don't follow much on the politics of CNRP, but IMO, it is the only alternative people can turn to to get their voice heard.

Interesting. Could you provide a link to the reference for that please.

You think the economy would improve if Kem Sokha had his way and all the Yuon were deported (which was his pre-CNRP position)? Markets, fishing, construction, rubber, skilled trades? Personally I think not. Vietnamese have been crucial to the Cambodian economy since the 1880s.

On behalf of Sailorman. A close source told me the vn owned Cambodian Angkor Air have the monopoly in the domestic air routes. No link.

You could at least try to be accurate. It's a joint venture in which the Cambodian government has 51% share.

Are you fucking with me JB? I dont know about the economy in the 1880s, but in the contemporary and recent past Cambodia the VN has taken a lot of Cambodian natural resources and occupied the prime lands too from the sellout Khmers. Cambodia to the eyes of the VN govt is a camp for the poor and opportunists to migrate to seek better opportunities.

Cambodia is trapped by an Asian giant and a cunning neighbor. If she is not going to be break free, internal war will be inevitable.

In term of Kem Sokha, SR the CNRP, were they were to deport the Vietnamese; there will be protest as there are friendships bonded among honest individuals. And most Khmers expressed they have no problem having the numerous number of legal VN living in this country; but the illegal ones need to return back. As of current, the legals and illegals can cross borders with impunity.

Yes, I understand that VN has a significant interest in Cambodia Angkor Air (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambodia_Angkor_Air). I am interested in a link to the source of the government blocking Air Asia and Cambodian Air's attempts to get access to the Sihanoukville route.

On paper maybe. Anyone who lives here long enough knows how things roll.

Maybe you should read history and keep up with CNRP cuz in a nutshell, you don't know what you're talking about. And I'm afraid just being Khmer or living in Cambodia a long time doesn't mean people can't be completely clueless (not aimed at you particularly).

CNRP aside. Many and many Cambodians including the youths are starting to listen and follow the LDP leader, a Prey Veng born. His support and donations came from the will volunteer donators. His speech sounds angry to the ears foreigners, but there are a lot of truth in what he said if you can understand it.

In term of the CNRP, there seem to be a lot of conflict internally happening in their party. I.e. who should be the foreman and the second in charge etc. Fuck that!
