Beware the Virus

Beware the Virus

Under the United Nations supervisions, Cambodia is emerging from the suffering, conflict,

and the feeling of insecurity. Our people are looking forward to a complete peace

and prosperity in Cambodia.

The present government of Cambodia, that is Hun Sen's government, was set up by the

Vietnamese soldiers and they think they owed a big debt to these Vietnamese invaders.

For many years to now they are turning blind eyes by letting hundreds, and hundreds

of thousands of Vietnamese settlers to live in Cambodia. This is a worry to most

Cambodian and myself.

Vietnam may be an over-crowded country and does not has enough natural resources

to support its people, but when these people just come and live in someone else country

by crossing and entering it illegally is totally absurd. Now they are nearly everywhere

in Cambodia. They are the virus, and they are spreading like cancer. Cambodia has

only a small population of about 8 millions and when compare to them nearly 70 millions

it is a scary thing especially when the language of these invaders is being use widely

in Cambodia. If something is not done about it Indochina will no longer remain as

Indochina, but Vietchina.

Intelligent people like you, Sir, can help and do good thing to my people and my

country. I would like the United Nations control these Vietnamese settlers by keeping

them in camps inside Cambodia and restrict those from coming into Cambodia at the

Cambodian/Vietnamese border illegally.
