King Father's tirade ignores historical record

Dear Editor,


read with puzzlement the article in your newspaper titled "Sihanouk

lashes out King Father's tirade ignores historical recordat journalist's war" (April 21,2009). However, I was not

surprised at all to hear the former king's tirade against all those who

dare criticising him. What is most incredible is the notion that

Sihanouk thinks that he is right all the time.

Can he be right when

he was an adversary to the Khmer Rouge during the 1960s, then turned to

become their ally in the 1970s and 1980s?

Can he be right when he

was against Hun Sen and the Vietnamese in the 1980s when he was leading

the national resistance movement against the Vietnamese occupation of

Cambodia, then now he turned to become a close ally of Hun Sen and

thanked Vietnam for "liberating" Cambodia?

Can anybody smart enough give me an answer to these questions?  

Dr Naranhkiri Tith
