Beware barking dogs

The Editor,

Please know how much I enjoy Mr Jason Roberts' "Khmer Sayings".

Having spent many years in South-East Asia as well as working on the Thai/Kampuchean

border (1979-80), I believe it is very important that people like Mr Roberts keep

alive such knowledge.

This is especially so for those living far away and unaware of the true wealth of

Khmer culture. So much has been lost since 1975.... and while we're talking about

that, it is beyond me how the Cambodian Government can forgive the likes of Ieng

Sary, Khieu Samphan, Pol Pot, Son Sen and the dark deeds of Angkar. They brought

about the genocide of at least three million Khmers, and must answer for their crimes.

Another Khmer saying is "The Dog is always barking"...thus it is regarding

the likes of that foul gang; they are too clever to be set loose!
