Sar Kheng says CNRP stole ‘national rescue’

CNRM founder Sam Rainsy suggested Kheng and his party did not have a copyright or patent on those words, and that the violent threats to eliminate his movement merely showed Cambodia needed rescuing again.
“Why are they so afraid of words? Maybe it’s a tacit recognition on their part that ‘national rescue’ or ‘national salvation’ have become relevant again, but this time against them,” he said.

Sar Kheng says CNRP stole ‘national rescue’

Phnom Penh Post | 8 February 2018

Interior Minister Sar Kheng yesterday lamented the phrase “national rescue” had been co-opted by the opposition party and their new movement – which he claimed could “become ISIS” – because the concept of “national salvation” belonged to the ruling party.

The words “rescue” and “salvation” – which translate to the same word in Khmer – were invoked in Prime Minister Hun Sen’s “United Front for National Salvation”, when his Vietnamese-backed force overthrew the Khmer Rouge in 1979.
Kheng said he was sorry the opposition party “stole” the term, but the Interior Ministry could not reject the name when the Cambodia National Rescue Party was registered in 2012.
He added the Cambodia National Rescue Movement was “not alive” in Cambodia due to constitutional law that would not allow anyone to “break democracy”, and said existing laws would “prevent” it from growing.
“If we do not control it, this movement can become ISIS or create army troops at the border. It is an illegal organisation. We must kill it,” he said.
CNRM founder Sam Rainsy suggested Kheng and his party did not have a copyright or patent on those words, and that the violent threats to eliminate his movement merely showed Cambodia needed rescuing again.
“Why are they so afraid of words? Maybe it’s a tacit recognition on their part that ‘national rescue’ or ‘national salvation’ have become relevant again, but this time against them,” he said.

    Sar Kheng is naively patient with a Vietnamese puppet Hun Sen because Sar Kheng dooesn't want to see the bloody violence. Also, the hidden Vietnamese spies in CPP are watching and trying to take the opportunity to kill more Cambodian people or Khmer/Cambodian nationalists or patriots in the blind eyes of the International Community. The evil Vietnamese hidden agents are not different from the hidden Vietnamese agents hiding in Khmer Rouges soldiers during the Killing Fields (1975-1979).

    We know that Sar Kheng is very careful and afraid of the serious conflict or fight between himself and Vietnamese puppet Hun Sen if Sar Kheng does not listen to Ah Yong Yuon/Vietnamese puppet Hun Sen.

    Sar Kheng and a Vietnamese puppet Hun Sen are trying to stay in peace each other.

    Sar Kheng warns CNRM could become next ISIS
    ----------------
    Oh come on, that's a biggest lie. Sam Rainsy is a total coward, he cannot possibly create and lead such a fearsome group as ISIS. Every time, he would just run away like a sissy coward.

    Then he waits at the fence to see if he would get a royal pardon or not while he broadcasts false promise, "I will return in a heart-beat." CNRM is not the next ISIS but a SISSY ok?!

    Sar Kheng says CNRP stole ‘national rescue’

    True, CNRP never rescued anyone, let alone Cambodia. Mr. Hun Sen and a few others crossed the border to brave enemy's fire and took their chance. The Vietnamese did not shoot but took them captive. Then they asked the Vietnamese to liberate Cambodia from Khmer Rouges. So, they were the ones who rescue Cambodia, not CNRP.

    Having your name with the word Rescue does not make you a rescuer.

    Drawing stupid cartoons showing yourself a super boxer vs. a wimpy opponent, Hun Sen, does not make Rainsy a superman or hero.

    Claiming Hun Sen is afraid of yourself does not make you, Rainsy a fearsome and powerful opponent but shows you as delusional loser.
