The Gecko: 29 March, 2002

Human beings like to think of themselves as quite a successful species, but consider

this. It is estimated that there are 10,000 trillion ants on the planet. And donít

forget army ants whose instinct for plunder is legendary. No living creature large

or small is safe from their attacks. Army ants are capable of dismembering a hog

in one hour and a horse in half a day. What about that!

One NGO sent out an invitation this week to celebrate its anniversary with the following:

ìRequest the honor of your company to participate as the extinguished guest and cordially

invite you.

The above photo was taken in Kampong Cham province. The guy who put it up has some

kind of a bee in his bonnet. He calls his office ìThe Department of Victimized People

by Political Cheating of Sam Rainsyî. Attacks against the SRP in the province took

on more of an imaginative touch than just the normal burning down of SRP supporterís

houses ñ both before and after the Commune Elections. One former provincial official

issued a statement that said Sam Rainsy had missiles that he was prepared to launch

if he was elected. The statement did not say where the missiles were aimed.

Micro sting operations have been taking place along the riverfront. Guys in blue

uniforms with no insignia have been swooping in to confiscate the 44 gallon oil drums

used by petrol vendors. They load them on a flatbed truck and then drive off without

even a ëthank youí.
