My Real Fear
By Chou Leang Hak, USA
Through my mind I see some thing that puts fear in my spirit. A fear that lingers as it materializes what awaits in the future in the Khmer society. I see an inevitable violence that could bring about more bloodshed among this hapless people whose life has just
emerged from literal hell of killing fields.
But why do I see this?
The future of the Khmers awaits the dark horizon that gradually looms over Cambodia like the ominous clouds of an unpredictable windforce that will once again sweep through and cause new and great sorrow in Cambodia. Silently I am contemplating with fear of what may transpire in the days and months ahead in our homeland. I know my vision of this is not at all farfetched but the possibility certainly exists.
PM Hun Sen and his party members are committed to hold firm, real firm, the control of all powers in the government of the kingdom. PM Hun Sen is doing this out of realization that he has done many bad things in his entire life starting from being a killer KR when he was a hot blooded young man in his early twenties during the killing of almost two millions of human lives of his own people in Cambodia. How malicious or how cool he was back in those days or even how many human lives had his own hands actually taken - ranging from none to countless - God only knows. And how one may judge the line of his Premiership it is all in the pictures.
What I have read in many articles about this strong man Hun Sen is not beautiful but bad, particularly during his reign that saw his ill activities in his role as the man at the helm in Cambodia. He was mentioned of having connections with illigal drug businesses that earn him huge sum of bad money, giving land concessions at will to anyone he's pleased with, but at the same time causing great sorrow in the life of his own people regarding their loss of lands and homes and properties. Their children were circumstantially forced to abandon their school. He was also mentioned of turning his blind eye to all sorts of lawlessness that occurred all around the nation and no justice was received by the victims. Whereas another issue of colossal, corrupt and unpardonable activities that only he knows best what those activities are also was mentioned.
Allowing the Yuon to dwell illegally on the great lake Tonle sap in Cambodia and pollute its fresh waters and yet Hun Sen has no will nor desire to get this nasty problem resolved immediately is another bad thing he knows he has done to his own country. Perhaps all issues mentioned here are a tip of the iceberg and bigger issues of criminal acts committed by this current Cambodian Royal government, such as forest and territorial issues, which Hun Sen knows all too well have yet to be discovered at the time of the demise of their reign.
And thus there is real fear in their troubled hearts and Hun Sen & CPP members are decisively committed to fight back and to hold on to power to evade any foreseeable trials even if it's obvious that the CPP had lost its leading position in that last election of 2013. Their fear forcefully propels them to rob the CNRP of its election victory using armed forced. According to an article in The Cambodia Daily published on December 3, 2013 the NGO had called the CNRP and informed it of its victory which was 76 out of 123 which meant the CPP had only won 46 seats out of 123.

Now that there will be great protests in the days ahead by the people led by CNRP to demand the truth of the election result and I have real fear that the Hun Sen government will not hesitate to harm or even kill anyone who tries to pull it down. The CPP will go extra miles, out of paranoia, to fearfully strengthen its grip on power much like a cornered tiger that will fiercely attack no matter what. And that's my real fear for the near future that awaits the Khmer fate. Foreign power may once again get involved in Cambodian affair. Tears of citizens will continue to flow because of bad leaders. God please help us.
