RIP the lady.. And condolences her family.

Unfortunately the Perp is a 1 star from Brigade 70 and some of my friends were his subordinates.

They are no longer his subordinates and the hunt is on.

Brigadier General.

Currently NO RANK.

Brigade 70 are having a party at the moment, no doubt the perp will be a lively topic.

Let's see the outcome.

That's a fucking abomination........the guy looks 17 years old.

In the west, your average 1 star would be in their mid 40's, at the youngest.

The ranking/merit structure in Cambodia is more fucked than I thought.

There was an interesting news article a few years back that discussed the embarrassment RCAF officers faced when doing joint exercises with western militaries. During the joint exercises their ranks had to be adjusted down in order to reflect their actual experience / leadership abilities.

It wouldn't be feasible to have a Cambodian General and American General working together.......the Cambodian General would be completely out of his fucking depth.

So during the course of the joint exercises, a Cambodian General rank would have to be adjusted down to a Lance Corporal or something like that.

What a fucking joke.

3000+ Cambodian Generals agree with you.

A one star has around 10,000 men so the Khmer Army is at least 30 million strong :lol:

Here a 1 star has around 200 men if that.

You know Cambodia... They like fancy titles and big degrees.

After all - ask any graduate a secondary school question.

Just got Mrs Cargo to have a look at the khmer video to try to find out the motive.

She says the guy was so jealous of the girl coz she got lots of calls about the cosmetics/lotions she was selling part time and some of those callers were guys..and he mistakenly thought she had other boyfriends/men admirers..
