Send the bill to Bill

The Editor,

I read in your issue of last week that the USA has put Cambodia on their list

of drug producing countries, along with Iran and Afhanistan.

Of course, all of us feel pity for the Americans and their drugs problems, and I

am sure most governments on that list would not mind to lend bill Clinton a hand,

if they had no more urgent priorities to tackle in their own countries.

What's more, now that it has become perfectly clear that the Americans have hardly

done anything tangible in cutting back their huge demand for narcotics at home, they

now seem to be looking for an easy way out by shifting the burden onto others.

I don't believe this can be considered as fair.

Therefore, I suggest that governments on that drug list start invoicing seriously

for their efforts in solving the American drugs problem.

Send the bill to Bill!

- Erick Paupaert, Phnom Penh.
