KR leaders hypocrites

KR leaders hypocrites

At best, the former KR leaders, individually and collectively, are a bunch of hypocrites.

There is simply no better term to describe these murderers. Why else would they want

all Khmer to "forget our bitter past", a terrible past that these same

KR leaders directly and indirectly perpetrated? The "Do as I say and not as

I do" preaching only works for the fools, not for the Khmer people who survived

their reign of terrors.

I believe it was Josef Stalin who said "Killing one is a murder, killing millions

is simply a statistic". These former KR leaders are also practicing Stalin's

insane philosophy in an attempt to escape from their responsibility for the butcher

and murder of millions of Khmer people, including nearly my entire family.

The current Khmer Rouge leaders' preaching is about "national reconciliation,

developing the economy, and about preserving the peace and stability". These

are important ideals that every Khmer person very much desires and should work to

achieve. Unfortunately, these ideals are not something that the KR themselves really

want. Why? Because they want absolutely nothing to do with "justice" that

every Khmer rightfully deserves. "Justice" is the primary component to

"national reconciliation, to development of the economy, to peace, and to stability

in Cambodia". The KR leaders repeatedly disregard this important factor (justice)

simply because they want to wash their hands clean of their role and responsibility

for genocide.

The murder of my family and over two million Khmers is not simply a statistic! Murder

is murder; and there is no statute of limitation or probation (pardon) for murderers.

Those responsible must be brought into a respectable court of law to answer for their

crime(s). No one is above the law, not even for these former KR leaders who have

always believed that they are above the law, above the rest of us survivors.

These former KR leaders have absolutely nothing to fear, if they did nothing wrong!

Submit yourselves to justice for what you have done and you shall have peace in return.
