Is The Phnom Penh Post next to owe back taxes in Cambodia?

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.

Please put that quote into English. For what it's worth very few posters here have balls, much less crystal ones.

As a side note, "perhaps "more civilized than thou" types.". .,that ironically describes your writing style.
this is a forum for people to express their views, not an English test. Criticize a point of view by all means but not how it is spelt or worded or we will never get to discuss anything other than why CEO spell checker uses American spellings. Also please do not make comments about posters balls. I doubt you have looked at many of them, but if you have you should keep that private. I have no desire to check if you have any, not interested. As for the lady members, I do not find it all surprising or interesting whether they have balls or not. Damn this American spelling sux

Can you tell me how much money was donated to Laos by western tax payers? China was the USA's hated enemy until they sided with them against Russian influence, and then sold themselves for a few dollars. We all know that western governments will support dictators who boil their opponents in oil if there's a buck to be made. But never confuse those people with free and fair journalism because you're worried about your own asses.

Sure certain players have had a hard on for Cambodia since Vietnam beat them, but it's a long stretch of the imagination to compare the lives of western citizens to the lives of Cambodians.

What you lot are saying is that it's a bad thing to have an opposition.

It seems like quite a few posters think that free press and stupid little things like supporting justice and the right to peaceful demonstration are imperialist foreign ideas that have no place in the world. Be careful what you wish for.

On a side-note - Bernard Krisher, later of the Cambodia Daily, wrote an inaccurate article in 1965 or so naming the Queen Mother Kossamak as a brothel and opium den owner. It turned out she only owned the land that these independent businesses were on. The article caused such a fuss that there were riots in Phnom Penh and the US and British embassies were ransacked.
More spurious rubbish.

It was obviously used metaphorically, but your prudish obsession is quite telling.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

You don't know what you're talking about:

Bernard Krisher- Newsweek April 5 1965

And Laos receives plenty of foreign aid, here's just one graph:

Over the years, Japan, Australia and Germany as well as multilateral institutions such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and International Development Association (IDA) in the World Bank
(WB) Group have been Laos’ top donors /creditors .Recently, however, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Thailand have ranked among major donors and creditors.

Are you seriously trying to mislead readers into thinking falsehoods again. Laos foreign investment by OECD countries was severely affected by the reemergence of Chinese rule in the 70's, and it never had the billions UNTAC spent on Cambodia. The link you supplied is defunct as well. It's to a $50 p y pay site.

Here's a list of US aid for the years 1960 and 2015 for Laos, Cambodia and others.
https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/DT.ODA.ALLD.CD

They receive about half what Cambodia receives. It has never had billions of western tax payers money spent on stopping a civil war and bringing in a democracy.
The idea that Krisher alone caused riots at the US embassy is laughable to say the least. Even the author of your so called evidence, says ostensibly. Do you know what that word means?

I think there maybe a problem with this site as I gave you a negative 'like', but it came out positive. I guess the CPP have now taken over this website, or perhaps the owners have sold it to the Chinese?

Idiot?

You're the one that can't tell the difference between a thumb up and a thumb down, then call it a 'problem with the site'. :facepalm:
