A funny idea

It's funny, but a dozen years ago in Vancouver, before a map of Southeast Asia, I

had this vision: to pierce a canal through the isthmus of Kra to link the Indian

Ocean and the Gulf of Siam, not only for Thailand and Malaysia but above all for

Sihanoukville which I dreamed of as the federal capital of Cambodia.

I dreamed in 1983 of a Federal Cambodia and I have proposed this idea through newsletters

to some 100 readers. Today, after having seen their inability to govern the whole

Cambodia, I remake my proposal to CPP, Funcinpec and SRP.

These three parties could govern separately a Cambodia divided into three autonomous

regions: for instance the East for Hun Sen, the Northwest (including Angkor) for

Ranariddh and the Southwest for Rainsy!
