Seeds of terrorism

The Editor,

T he shocking photos and the account of the March 30 grenade attack in Phnom Penh

is sad evidence showing that someone hasn't learned anything from their Khmer history;

that nothing good comes by terrorism. Anyone sewing the seeds of terrorism shall

reap its bitter crop in return. Look to the Middle East and see what 2,000 years

of terrorism cultivated there. It has brought only a harvest of grief and desolation.

Anyone thinking things are different in Cambodia is sadly mistaken.

No peace shall come until all parties put down their weapons and settle their differences

by council. The alternative is to lose it all.
