The arrest of the two suspects of the bomb mastermind at the Phum Jai Thai Party draw many analysis from the Thai sides by putting
doubt over Hun Sen’s political attitude towards Thailand. One of them is the TAN News which republsihes ”What Now With Cambodia” the news is originally written in Thai published in the ‘Tang Khao’ column, Kom Chad Luek newspaper, page 2, July 6th, 2010″,
which is translated and rewritten by Wacharapol Isaranont. Bwlow is a short excerpt from the article.
Maybe it’s time for Thailand to understand that its relationship with Cambodia will never be on a friendly footing, especially when the Cambodian leader’s recent behaviors openly demonstrated unrelenting hostility towards one of its closest neighbors, Thailand. And he is becoming increasingly menacing each day, having seen that the Thai authorities do not have the nerve to respond in kind. It is unfathomable why the Thai government is hesitant to get tough with Cambodia. Maybe it is purely due to the lack of courage or maybe it is about vested interests.
It is unbelievable how the government and the military still can tolerate Cambodia’s defiance stance while most of Thais have long been at the end of their ropes.
It is understandable that previous governments of Samak Sundaravej and Somchai Wongsawat, both known to act on the cues of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, would take no actions and even favor Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen by agreeing to deals that Thailand would stand to lose.
But when the Abhisit Vejjajiva government took over in late 2009, it should have put a stop to Hun Sen’s aggression towards Thailand.
NOTE: It seems that until now some of Thai people still live in a cave or are jungle people and really don’t know who is the real aggressor/ trouble-maker (Hun Sen or Abhisit and extremist PAD) between Cambodia and Thailand.
Personally, I don’t support Hun Sen for his dictatorship rule, but to say that he is aggressive towards Thailand without analyzing the real causes created by Thailand I am absolutely against it.
A senior Cambodian army official said Wednesday his troops have killed at least 88 Thai soldiers over the past two years in clashes near an ancient temple on a disputed frontier.
General Chea Tara, a Cambodian deputy commander-in-chief who oversees military operations in the area near the Preah Vihear temple, said that 38 Thai soldiers were killed in October 2008 and another 50 in April 2009.
“We helped them to find the bodies but they still hide the figure,” he said at a briefing of government officials and lawmakers about developments in the border spat. He said only two Cambodian soldiers were killed in the clashes.
The Thai military has previously said that only three of its soldiers were killed in the 2009 gunbattle. Thai army spokesman Colonel Sunsern Kaewkumnerd denied the new claims.
“The information is not true. If that many Thai soldiers were killed, it would have been big news since then,” he said.
Chea Tara said that soldiers on both sides have remained on “high alert”, but added that the situation near the temple was now quiet.
“Cambodian troops have enough ability to protect the territory and we have all kinds of modern weapons to counter Thai soldiers,” he added.
Cambodia and Thailand have been locked in nationalist tensions and a troop standoff at their disputed border since July 2008, when Cambodia’s 11th century Preah Vihear temple was granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
The Thai-Cambodia border has never been fully demarcated, partly because it is littered with landmines left over from decades of war in Cambodia, which ended in 1998.
Earlier this month Cambodia mounted a rare public test of rockets to protect against “invaders”, while Prime Minister Hun Sen has made several fiery speeches accusing Thai leaders of infringing on his territory.
The World Court ruled in 1962 that the temple belonged to Cambodia, although its main entrance lies in Thailand. The exact boundary through the surrounding grounds remains in dispute.
Relations deteriorated further in November after Hun Sen appointed ousted Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra as his economic adviser and refused to extradite him to Thailand, which he fled to avoid a jail term for corruption.
It has been quiet for a while concerning with the conflict between Siam and Cambodia over the Siamese invasion on Preah Vihear Khmer temple. Now it starts again when Cambodia is cheduled to submitt its administrative and conservative plan to UNESCO.” The Nation has it below:
Since Cambodia was to propose the administration and conservation plan for Preah Vihear on February 1, PM Abhisit Vejjajiva should express Thailand’s stance that Thailand has never agreed and joined in the plan making, an academic said Monday.
Well, we Khmer know that the theift never gives up stealing. So it doesn’t need you to reassure it to us. However, you Siamese people should also know that Cambodia has never asked you to join the plan or care whether you Siam agree or not with it, because Preah Vihear khmer temple has nothing to do with you Siam.
ML Wanwipa Charoonroj of Thammasat University’s Thai Studies Institute said the Cambodian plan would be submitted to the UNESCO headquarters in Paris to seek the World Heritage Committee approval in the 34th general meeting in Brazil’s Brasilia City. Read the rest of this entry »
A siamese political science professor at Choulalonkorn University was quoted that Kasit Piromya was the cause root of the deplomatic conflict between Cambodia and Siam for his role with PAD and the irresponsible act in the spy case.
I partly agree with him, but according to what I have observed the Khmer-siam conflict which has come to the lowest downdrade this years is caused not only by Kasit, but also other key persons involved in like Thakksin, Sondi Boonyaratglin, Samark, Somchai, Abhisit, PAD Leader, and Hun Sen.
- The first provokers is Thaksin and then continued by the coup leader. Actually, Cambodia tried to list the temple as Word Heritage Site for the first time in 2006, but failed to be accepted due to siamese objection.Then Cambodia failed it again in 2007 caused by the protest of the siamese coup regime of General Sondi.
- This protest again is continued by the Thaksin proxi government under Samak Sudaravej from January to Sepemter 2008. This led to a compromise by Cambodian government for accepting to draw a new map, which legally contrasts to the internationally renognized Siamese-French 1907 map, and signed a Jiont Communique in France, 2008. However, the proxi Thaksin government under Samark did not feel happy and still demanded for a Joint Management of the Khmer temple listing. Read the rest of this entry »
