Looks like Cambodian people are moving towards online audio distribution, I just saw on a cambodian ngo - licadho.org - an audio version of their latest report.

Hope they can also distribute it on tapes throughout the country.

No one can help Khmer if they don’t help themselves. If they want to have a better standard of living, first they must abstain themselves from taking small baits, like a bit of rice or a few dollars. I can understand if they have small brain like a fish. Khmer may get offended but if they want a brighter future they must abstain themselves between now and election time and make the right decision to choose or to change the status quo.

Sam Rainsy is nothing but a corrupted Coward in disguise. Judge for yourself. Whenever it's calm in Cambodia, he goes on site and preaches revolution against corruption and corrupted government. This is good. BUT, and there is a GIANT BUT here, when things get sour (as in repression by local warlords), Sam Rainsy uses his french passport to quickly get out of the country and leave "his people" to be slaughtered without help... And this happens so many times that no one could keep count anymore.

Is this the sign of a good leader ?

Wake up, people!!!

I dont say Rainsy is as good as Buddha, but Hun Sen is uncomparable to him.

Rainsy didnt bring VN force to capture Psovann to be upgraded. He didnt killed or imprisoned Khmers because of Yuon, to be in favor of Yuon. He was thrown the grenade at, but he is still courageous enough. He didnt send Khmer Nationalists monk to be sentenced in VN,,, u wanna know more!!!1

for those cambodian who seem to be confuse or those vietnamese who try to confuse us, we know for sure that Mr.Samrainsy is the true patriot, he the true cambodia hero,he sacrafice his life by standup to the dictator (hun sen)who has no education, with blood on his hand, and only serve his youn boss, for those who are confuse, i suggest that if you think both,mr.samrainsy& Hen sen corrupted &evil, you should goes with the one less evil. so that maybe your country and your folk will one day live in peace.

I just want to add something here since none of us know the true. Before we say this leader is good or bad, we should ask ourselves one question, DO I UNDERSTAND OR KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT POLITICS IN CAMBODIA? In fact, we say based on what we think we see and hear. We don't see and hear what we actually see or hear. To me no-one is better than the other. They are all the same. Sam Rainsey will be Hun Sen once he gets elected. He will cheat, corrupt just like Hun Sen. Why? Because he has nothing and is looking for treasure now so when he hits the gold mine, do you think he would walk away from it and tell people that he found it. If you think he would, you are really STUPID. He might just give you a small piece after he filled up his storage ,his wife's storage, his kids' storage, his grandkids'storage, his great grandkids' storage( I can go on, if you don't get the picture)So how much left for Cambodians like you and me?! Big flat ZERO. He acts like he is really care about the country and the nation now, but he will be a completely man after the election. You watch and see.

You khnow nothing about Sam Rainsy and you talk about him.

The problem is not Hun Sen or Sam Raingsy.

That is we are governed by a Band of idiots with law degree without knowledge.

They must start or restart their law course.

Sam Rainsy action is not criminal because his intention was not to destroy public property but to sensitize government attention.

RESTORE THE ORDER OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS.... I THINK HUNXEN IS BEING HYPNOTIZED BY VIET KONG. THAT WHAT THEY DID TO MR CHAN SY VIET GANGS RAPE HIM WITH POISON.

DO NOT GIVE UP. DO NOT GIVE UP. DO NOT GIVE UP. WE HAD COME A LONG WAY.

VIET IS NOT TRUE TO THE KHMER PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE " C. JO HUN XEN PLEASE TELL HIM IT IS VIET TACTIC TO ELIMINATE WITHOUT BLEEDING" HUN XEN IS NOT ANY DIFFERENT FROM RAINSY BUT IT FIRST AND LAST FOR THEIR FATES.

TO THOSE WHO READ AND RELATE TO HUN HUN PLEASE DO NOT TAKE MUY HUN, TAKE MUY DOM LENG..OK.

11:38 AM, you are either an Ah Youn’s Spy , Ah Kgnom Youn or Ah khmer Kbot Cheat.

Sam Rainsy is a khmer patriot. He is in exile, because the Kangaroos court in Phnom-Penh , under the instruction of Hun Sen, a Youn’s Slave, indicted Sam Rainsy for a jail term of 20 years. This is in violation of the constitutions of Cambodia established under the Paris Peace Agreement on October 23rd 1991 that provided immunity to all members of Parliament. He has no choice but stay abroad to continue fighting for freedom of Cambodia.

Sam Rainsy is the only Cambodian Leader who dares to challenge and criticize Ah Youn and it’s puppet Hun Sen for annexing Cambodia to Vietnam.

Hun Sen et al are the First degree of Vietnamese Slaves. Anybody following Hun Sen are Secondary degree of Vietnamese Slaves.

If Sam Rainsy obey orders from Hun Sen, he will automatically be the Secondary degree of Vietnamese Slaves.

We, Cambodian patriots, agreed with Sam Rainsy and respect him as our spoke person. We praise him for his courage and protection of Cambodian inalienable right for Sovereignty, territorial integrity and neutral as provided by the Paris Peace Agreement.

As for Hun Sen, the most important thing for him to do if he wanted to leave a good name in history and be a khmer patriot is to abolish or cancel Unequal Treaties with Vietnam since 1980 to date that reduced Cambodian Land and Maritime Territory for about 30,000.00 square Kilometers.

To 9:53am and All,

I second your idea.
So far I have obsetved those who criticize Samrainsy
are either misinformed or CPP supporters, may be both.
If he will be elected, Cambodia for the first time would have the most educated leader in its history.
So let's support Dr. Samrainsy !!!

A proud Khmer
