Thanks to Nixon...

Thanks to Nixon...

The Editor,

T hanks to US Foreign policy that saved hundreds of millions of people's lives

from communist dictatorship. Thanks to President Richard Nixon and his close aid

Dr. Henry Kissinger for opening the door with the Peoples Republic of China in 1972.

Thanks to those who sacrificed their lives during the Vietnam War in order to save

South East Asian nations from communist occupation. Thanks to President Richard Nixon

for his strategy to win over empire vampire communists. Thanks to Ronald Reagan's

doctrine of peace through strength. Thanks to President George Bush for the hard

work to achieve the 1991 Paris Peace Accords. Thanks to President Clinton for a strong

foreign policy and for granting MFN status to Cambodia. Thanks for UNTAC for supervising

a free and fair election. Thanks to the donors and NGOs for contributing to rehabilitation,

democracy and development in Cambodia. And finally, thanks to the Cambodian people

who fought to cast their ballots.

Leaders in the country must recognize this sacrifice for peace, democracy and prosperity.

The leaders must show gratitude to the people by stopping their nonsense and slashing

out at each other. The people are sick and tired of war, and they hate war and want

peace, food and work.

Cambodia should pay back and show gratitude to the world, in particular, to the US

government and its people by bringing peace to the Cambodian people.

The problem of political instability is caused by the two major parties. The solution

and destiny of Cambodia is in the good hands of Samdech Hun Sen and Samdech Krom

Preah Norodom Ranariddh. I sincerely and kindly suggest that the two Prime Ministers

must sacrifice and have courage to meet each other to produce meaningful results.

The ice must be broken under the presence of Secretary of State Madeleine Albright

so she can return to Washington with glory.

The people of this country ought to understand that only with human rights, rule

of law and peace can Cambodia be saved.

- Ted Ngoy, Chairman, Free Development Republican Party
