Thai Democrats to stop Cambodia to develop area around Preah Vihear

Give our kids a better deal
Preah Vihear Temple
 
Bangkok (The Nation/ ANN) -- Democrat spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said yesterday that Cambodia is planning to propose that the area around Preah Vihear Temple be developed, at the next meeting of the World Heritage Committee (WHC) in June, and hence the government should launch a clear opposition campaign.

He urged the government to apply the January 13, 2010 resolution of the Abhisit Vejjajiva Cabinet, which objected to Cambodia's move to unilaterally have the temple registered for World Heritage status. The resolution also approved a Bt10-mln budget for lobbying to stall Cambodia's listing attempt because this move would create tensions between the countries, he said. Hence, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government should follow this resolution and express its standpoint at the WHC meeting, he said.

Chavanond explained that allowing Cambodia to develop the area around the temple could affect Thailand's sovereignty and the work of the Thai team at the International Court of Justice would be wasted.

The spokesman also dismissed Foreign Minister Surapong Towichukchaikul's earlier comment that the resolution of the WHC meeting in June would not have any effect on the dispute being handled by the ICJ. He said these two matters could not be separated because if Cambodia was able to manage this area, it would be included in the French-made 1:200,000-scale map, which would not be good for Thailand.

He also urged Yingluck to listen to the opposition's advice and order that the Natural Resource and Environment Ministry, which is handling the WHC issue, object to Cambodia's request that the temple be granted World Heritage status, because this was the root cause of the dispute.

On Tuesday, Surapong presented the map approved by the 1962 Cabinet delineating Preah Vihear's "vicinity" to the current Cabinet for acknowledgement. The Thai legal team will send this map and its coordinates as well as an explanation to the ICJ tomorrow. Cambodia will then send its reaction and the Thai team will send its response to the ICJ on May 3.

Conflicts between Cambodia and Thailand cause by Democrate Party leaders. Do Thais support Democrate Party ?

The idea of using the watershed was to oversimplifying the task of demarcating the border
line. Deep down in theirs heart, French surveyors knew that the actual Khmer Territories
were laying far beyond the Dang Rek mountain chain to the North many times over. That was
the reason why those Frenchmen made the exception in their drawing when they found the
Temple of Preah Vihear.
Their consciences simply did not allow them to ignore the historical Fact that the Temple site
is belongs to the Khmer. They probably felt ashamed too for using the watershed notion to
accommodate theirs laziness when they looked at the Temple, they suddenly realized that
hundreds of years have passed, there were diligent Khmer ancestors had erected the magnificent
Place,the Preah Vihear Temple, which were thousand times harder to accomplish than theirs task
at hand.
I can assure you that if Sdok Kak Thom Temple were situated closer to the Dang Rek, the
French had done the same at that time,they ignored the watershed line and gave Sdok Kak Thom
Temple to Khmer as well; Siamese wouldn't dare utter a word to complain !!!
Looking back through history, Thais should realized that they were lucky to have a country
Thailand to call it Home. If it was not for what Senei Pramoj had done in the USA, the mighty
British had had dismantled the Siamese Colony right after the WWII ended.
The opposition led by Abhisit was to blame for causing all the trouble in 2008.

Now, Humankind are simply brothers and sisters from the common ancestor even though we
erred by fighting each other for thousands of years.It is about time for Humankind to act
responsibly worthy to the weight of brain each carry.
By the way,who was the guy saying that if ICJ award the land to Cambodia then the 100 year
war will start between the countries ? Oh poor general !!! Do you want to be king privy councilor ?!
We Khmer have not mentioned about the cluster bombs you dumb ass fired on the temple yet, you idiot !!!.

Siam kept on blindly blaming the WHC for listing Prasat Preah Vihear on world heritage site. They also blaming tension between Siam & Khmer. IT'S NOT WHC FAULTS IT'S SIAM WHO CREATED TENSION IN THE FIRST PLACE. THEY TRYING TO START A WAR WITH CAMBODIA. They think with their military superiority they can force Khmer into giving territories like the Youn had done in the 80's.





Here are the flaws of Siam plans:
1. Siam had large budgets for military spending to acquired modern weapons. After all the money they spent their forces are not dominating it's neighbors. With exception of their air force & navy. Their ground forces performances poorly against Laotian in the late 80's. Now since 2008 up to 2011 they attacked Khmer forces several times and several positions and still didn't control any until today. War in SE Asia terrains are not favors heavy mechanize divisions or Naval powers and limited air attack. Laotian & Khmer are far more COURAGES, EXPERIENCES than Siam. Just Laotian & Khmer are poor and can't afford fancy weapons. WHATS GOOD A WEAPONS WHEN THE PERSON HOLDING IT ARE COWARDS.

2. Siam military and elites are as corrupted as any Indo China countries. Most of their billions budget go to top military leaders. Their ground forces still using a mixer of
American, French, Israelis, Chinese & Russian. Most of ground forces weapons are Chinese & Russian like Khmers are using so you see they DO NOT HAD SUPERIORITY over us as far as ground forces. Siam are COWARDS for centuries. They able to take Khmer's territories BECAUSE OTHERS KHMERS BETRAYED THEIR KINGS.

3. SIAM population CAN'T handle high causalties and suffering that comes with a war with Laotian or Khmers. Cambodia might not able to hold the lines for long BUT we can make Siam pay a very high price for stepping on our land. Khmers are far more experiences in small pitch battles. Khmers forces will avoided of large pitch battles because of Siam stronger strengths. Khmers will make Siam have to fight a small pitch battles, that when we ruled.

4. Siam ARE NOT courages, nor highly motivated, not experiences, not toughness, like the Vietnamese who fought the American , Chinese, and Khmer Rough forces. So you see why Siam will not accimplish like Youn were able to do to our country. Siam think they are because of their fancy weapons BUT reality on the ground are different.

The Thai Democrats and their supporters, the so-called Yellow Shirt people, are extremists to a a degree. They were the ones who caused troubles between Cambodia and Thailand that led to several armed clashes resulting in the deaths of many people from both sides. The Democrats Party does not receive popular support from the Thai people, so they stoke nationalistic fervor in order to garner the support they desperate needed. The Thai Democrats are playing dangerous politics.
