Tigers and Crocodiles

Today, I am a Cambodian history researcher, happily writing to tell you about the

dirty, secret plans and long-time dream of Hanoi. To tell the world not to misunderstand

about the destruction of Cambodia a man-made disaster will be recognized as one of

the great crimes of the 20th century, which was created by "the mysterious regime

of Angkar Leu/Cap Tren of Hanoi," whose wish is to incorporate Cambodia into

their "Vietnamization" or Indo-chinese federation. It was not an act of

God!

An ancestral prophecy predicts that one day the unfortunate Khmer people will be

forced to choose between being eaten by tigers (Khmer Rouge) or swallowed by crocodiles

(Vietnamese). Today we are seeing clearly that prophecy fulfilled in the most tragic

way possible. The Kampuchean people are on the brink of extinction, dying a slow

death, murdered in the name of two conflicting types of Communism. It is a struggle

to the death between Kampuchean and Vietnamese Communism; it is also a dispute between

the two Communist giants they represent, China and Russia.

The past and the present Hanoi leaders had been [and] are trying every diplomatic

and legal means to eliminate the Khmer race by using the secret words of "Angkar

Leu/Cap Tren" during the terror of war in Indochina from 1970-79. Hanoi had

used only their two secret paramount-Pol Pot and Ieng Sary-on the international levels.

But in the country, they had used a "mysterious young soldiers of Angkar Leu/Cap

Tren" to kill the Khmer innocence brutally. So would you be so kind to print

this article in the Phnom Penh Post to tell the world not to misunderstand about

the destruction of Cambodia.
