Sam Rainsy will again stunt the world this November 9, 2019

Not just violating the Constitution, abusing power and declaring enemies with his own people, Hun Sen dares to make any concession while in power such as exchange from good to evil by defending and promoting the evils, the thieves and the murderers. A concession to China to freely use Khmer land for military purpose, concession to Vietnam in border demarcation, etc. Hun Sen dare all kinds of concessions to foreign nations and individuals who dare to defend his power during this fragile transitional period.

Sam Rainsy will again stunt the world this November 9, 2019

We remember Sam Rainsy’s homecoming on July 19, 2013, when nearly million of people in Phnom Penh, especially young people, came out to receive and welcome him. The greeting procession was long crowded from the airport to the CNRP headquarters. Observers of the situation observed that his overwhelming popularity at that time was because he was a political figure who has been realistic in bringing real democracy to the Khmer people. And what turned out to be the overwhelming majority of supporters at the time was because the government under Hun Sen had been constantly harassing him especially through the court orders. Cambodia courts have had bad reputation in its profession. Among those court orders, charging against Sam Rainsy of removing border posts and accusing him of damaging the Cambodian government’s friendship with Vietnam were the ignition leaded to such people tsunami gathering.

The events of 9 November 2019 are more logic than 2013. Sam Rainsy’s party’s resignation is seen as his high-paid example and this act aimed to keeping the CNRP life from new amended laws orchestrated by Hun Sen. But the arrest of Kem Sokha, the successor of the party, dissolving the party prior the convicting and prosecuting Kem Sokha, further upset more than three million members who voted for CNRP.

Sam Rainsy’s repatriation as CNRP’s acting president and return to the country to save the party is something that over 3 million party’s supporters cannot stay silence.

Hun Sen, on the other hand, observers of the situation have seen much of the wrongdoing as a result of conceit and delusion allowing himself drunken in endless thirst for power. Instead of acknowledging the reality of the dwindling popularity under his leadership for more than 30 years, declaring himself to retire or taking a rest from politics as a statesman, Hun Sen has resorted to vengeance with his own people. Nearly half of the kingdom population who voted for the CNRP, Hun Sen ordered to arrest their leader, detained on false charges, dissolving the party without conducting credible judicial procedure. Judgment of the Supreme Court without any real legal basis and the stealing of the 55 Assembly seats as well as the 5007 commune councillors directly voted by the people is a gross political authoritarianism.

Petition to the Secretary General of the United Nations

His Excellency António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations;

We, the undersigned, request your urgent intervention for the safe repatriation of Sam Rainsy, Acting President of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and his colleagues to Cambodia on November 9, 2019.

Just a month ahead, the violent rhetoric from Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia is ominous: shelling heavy weapons, dispatching troops along the border, and shooting Rainsy’s airplane etc. Over 250 CNRP’s activist members are either accused by the court or extrajudicially detained by authorities. Kem Sokha, President of the CNRP, has been in detention two years (the first year in jail; the second year under “house arrest”), the CNRP was dissolved by order of the court prior to the general election in 2018. Hun Sen stole the seats of Member of Parliament and Commune Councillors whom people voted for them, and banned 108 Cambodian citizen from involvement in politics.

These actions are unconstitutional and violating the Paris Peace Agreement of 1991 as well as international covenant on civil and political rights Cambodia has ratified.

With Paris Peace Agreement and the mandates of the United Nations, we ask that your excellency intervene to prevent a deadly confrontation from November 9, 2019 onward.

A new ‘Trump Doctrine’ could start with Cambodia

This is not a paper “war game.” America’s military has already considered this hypothetical, and has bombed its enemies on Cambodian soil once before. This time the objective would be to remove China’s military from Southeast Asia, and more broadly the Indo-Pacific, which includes the South China Sea. A collateral effect of bombing Cambodia could be changes in power which non-violent measures, like sanctions, could not effect. America would “kill two birds with one stone.”

A new ‘Trump Doctrine’ could start with Cambodia

Christopher Beres

Op-Ed: Asia Time, By CHRISTOPHER BERES

Picture this: Somewhere in the South China Sea, which China claims as its own, a Chinese warship confronts a Philippine warship or, maybe it’s vice versa, and shots are exchanged. It doesn’t matter which warship fired first. The fight is on and the Philippines’ warship is soon joined by American warships that come to the aid of their treaty ally. China marshals its resources, calling more of its warships to join the fight.

China’s military, which has clandestine facilities in Cambodia, ostensibly for the “repair and maintenance of its warships and jet fighters,” is ready to perform its support functions. The Chinese have prepared for this eventuality, but so too have the Americans. Rather than bomb mainland China, which could escalate the territorial dispute into a world war, America bombs China’s military facilities in Cambodia and, while at the task, bombs Cambodia’s military facilities as well. After all, Cambodia is not merely China’s friend, it’s China’s military ally.

This is not a paper “war game.” America’s military has already considered this hypothetical, and has bombed its enemies on Cambodian soil once before. This time the objective would be to remove China’s military from Southeast Asia, and more broadly the Indo-Pacific, which includes the South China Sea. A collateral effect of bombing Cambodia could be changes in power which non-violent measures, like sanctions, could not effect. America would “kill two birds with one stone.”

Reality is also fraught with peril. The US is engaged in a cold war with China. China is militarizing the South China Sea. Cambodia supports China’s claims to the South China Sea. The US believes Cambodia will permit China to position troops on its territory. China provides Cambodia with nearly all of its military assistance and small arms. Cambodia has had little choice but to engage China because of the historical threat and domestically unpopular land grabs from Vietnam to its east. The Philippines’ admiralty would also like to drag the US into a fight with China. America views China as a threat to the post-World War II status quo in Asia in which the US has heretofore been pre-eminent.

And while the Cambodian government has many US-educated leaders who could be pro-US, America has not played this card to improve its relationship with Cambodia, apparently having embarked on a course of non-violent measures to punish Cambodia.

Cambodia has been unfairly subject to a punitive US foreign policy for a long time. However, America’s policy could become more interventionist in order to counter China’s possible militarization of Cambodia

Cambodia has been unfairly subject to a punitive US foreign policy for a long time. However, America’s policy could become more interventionist in order to counter China’s possible militarization of Cambodia.

The US should engage with Cambodia as an ally, do business with it, and try to influence its actions with respect to China. The carrot is better than a stick that has not worked.

The US Congress’ current policy seeks to sanction Cambodia’s leaders, to deny Cambodia access to loans from international financial institutions, to withdraw Cambodia’s trade preferences, and to elevate a defunct opposition party to the status of the legitimate government of Cambodia. President Donald Trump has appointed a new ambassador to Cambodia whose self-professed mission is to promote democracy and human rights and work with Congress to punish Cambodia. In this context, America is in effect not willing to work with the long-standing de jure government in Phnom Penh.

Unfortunately, the United States’ experience with China over the last 30 years since Deng Xiaoping’s gaige kaifang (the “Four Modernizations”) has been that  over time with economic development China has not become more open but more closed and militaristic. Cambodia is open and democratic and needs friendship from a democratic partner in the West.

America’s real objective in Cambodia is not a secret and has nothing to do with freeing Kem Sokha or reviving the Cambodia National Rescue Party; rather, it is to contain China to protect America’s legitimate national-security interests. Certainly, Cambodia also has its own national-security interests to protect vis-a-vis China.

It is in both America’s and Cambodia’s best interest to negotiate a deal to contain China.

As a gesture of goodwill, the US might consider forgiving Cambodia’s war debt, which totals around US$500 million, in the amount of $50 million for every year over the next 10 years. The cost to America’s national security should China gain a military foothold in Cambodia would be much greater than $500 million.

As for Cambodia, it must know that the US is a better strategic ally than China, one that does not have the same “hidden agenda.”

A new “Trump Doctrine” for Cambodia and other parts of Southeast Asia would enable the US president to apply “the art of the deal” to disrupting the current unsuccessful US policy in the region. The Trump Doctrine would extend the Monroe Doctrine to be “the doctrine of the world” and “upset the applecart” of the failed policies of the past. As with his bipartisan consensus trade policy toward China, the goal would be to end China’s aggression in the region permanently.Asia Times is not responsible for the opinions, facts or any media content presented by contributors.
