Khmer Virginity Ruined

Foreign companies of all forms have been "jumping" into a country that

has just changed from the communist economic system moulded on Vietnam's system to

a free market economy to do their investment businesses.

At first, I thought they came to help our factories to produce things for people's

needs.

Just look! The ltd. banks, the Thai banks, the Millionaire lottery, the Lotto lottery,

night clubs, restaurants and hotels, etc., are found everywhere, even in small towns.

Maybe they thought from a distance that the Khmer People, whose motherland is abundant

in natural resources, are very rich.

More serious still, it is not only the Khmer natural resources and conscience that

are destroyed, but so is the virginity of the entire Khmer People.

In such a situation, I am completely confused.
