Nix the Word Indochina

Editors:

As a Cambodian patriot, I am honored and proud to welcome the Phnom Penh Post (PPP,

or P-Cubed). Your praiseworthy courage and patience are exemplary. As the Phnom Penh

Post is born, long live the Phnom Penh Post.

As its birthday nearly coincided with that of the United States of America, I hope

that the P-Cubed will hold firm to its fair, free, and democratic way of treating

Cambodian affairs.

To start, I wish to see that the word "Indochina" has no place on its pages.

In my humble opinion, that word has its own time, and that time is over! During the

last decade "Indochina" was a geographical designation for all states lying

in between India and China. Moreover, in conformity with the protocol of the respected

United Nations organization, all countries should be listed in alphabetical order.

This practice must apply to Cambodia on the P-Cubed's pages.

- Shri Belong Munisagor
