The Vietnamese bastards had been thieving since they put their foot down in Khmer land many centuries ago. After stealing Khmer Krom land in 1949, they're slowly pushing to the mainland Khmer. 1979 was Vietnam greatest moment in Cambodia. It was like winning a Jackpot. They looted pretty much anything they can get their hands on. After 10 years of occupation, Cambodia was drained of many natural resources. Large trees were cut down and much of the fish populations were greatly reduced. The Vietnamese use some of cruelest techniques to catch fish. Such techniques were electrical shocked and tossing
granade in the water. Their ways in Cambodia was to
assure destruction so Cambodia would have nothing left.

These are only 2 tourist buses. How did the Viet steal our timbers along the borders? In Rattanakiri and Mondulkiri they cut and stole our trees and timbers at a grand scale everyday, with the involvements of corrupt Cambodian officials.
