Letter To The New York Times: Stopping the Syrian Military [This is a warning to Hun Sen]

By Moeun Chhean Nariddh, Phnom Penh
The New York Times
Published: August 30, 2013 

Regardless of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian military, the killing of more than 100,000 Syrian people is more than enough for the world to call it a violation of international humanitarian standards and to fulfill its moral obligation to stop the bloodshed.
The Cambodian people weren’t so fortunate after the Khmer Rouge embarked on their murderous reign of terror in 1975. They waited for years for the international community to come to their rescue. It was not until the Khmer Rouge had slaughtered and starved to death nearly two million Cambodians that the military of a neighboring country came to end their rule.
Intervention by the United States will not only help deter the Syrian military from killing their own people, but will set a precedent that the world will not stand by and watch any more rogue states repeat the same mistakes as President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
