The Vietnam that occupied Cambodia from its invasion on Christmas Day in December 1978 to the signing of the Paris Peace Agreement in October 1991 (read excerpts from Elizabeth Becker’s WHEN THE WAR WAS OVER, attached):

- a Cambodian survivor population of 5M emerging from the Khmer Rouge hell; then minus 1M for famine deaths, refugees escaping to Thailand and K5 Genocide (killing of Cambodian males) during military occupation;

- nearly 200,000 soldiers of military occupation lording over this vulnerable population of 4M in a hermetically sealed country;

Chapter 10: The Silence Ends (When the War Was Over -- if there's only one book you read on Cambodia, this is it!):

"Unified Vietnam was a nation of 50 million people, and the second largest communist power in Asia. Its military prowess was staggering; Hanoi had not demobilized its army in peace. Instead, communist Vietnam expanded its armed forces in peace until it included one million fighters--the third largest in the world. The Vietnamese were ranked among the five most effective military powers in the world." (p. 370)

"The Vietnamese may have been the victors, but the spoils were hardly enough to rebuild the land ripped apart during the war. The bounty was in military hardware: 1.6 billion rifles; 130,000 tons of ammunition; 42,000 trucks, 1,200 armed personnel carriers; 63,000 antitank weapons; and enough jet fighters and other aircraft, along with some 1,000 ships, to make Vietnam one of the foremost military powers in the world." (p. 379)

      Honestly, there were only 50 million Vietnamese in 1970 decade and some Khmers believed there were 1.6 billion riffles! LOL... Each Vietnamese would have more than 300 riffles. Seriously each Vietnamese infant or and elder would have 300 riffles.

      Khmers are just ridiculous. Please stop posting such stupid claim.

    Meanwhile Samsung has been recruiting thousands and thousands of Vietnamese engineers in Vietnam. Each of their jobs is 20 to 30 times more than a typical Cambodian garment worker!

    I wished Vietnam had not liberated Cambodia in 1979. Let the Khmers killed each others until Cambodia can never recover. These people are so troublesome and I would be glad they wiped themselves out.

    Seriously, they made Asians to look bad. Just look at the horrific rape problem going on in Cambodia. What a sick country and an evil race.

    No wonder, Cambodia ranked 105th out of 110 countries in the 2017 International Math Olympiad last year while Vietnam ranked 3rd in the world of the same event.

North and SOUTH, they are just one kind of Vietnamese NATIONAL, the EVIL VIETNAMESE!!! How many hundreds of thousands of French and American did the Vietnamese kill? How many of the Vietnamese suicide commando did the Vietnamese send to be killed in SOUTH Vietnam, LAOS, and Cambodia and called themselves MARTYRS? Vietnamese prostitute have been all over the place - air, land, and sea...just ask the WORLD! The Vietnamese is EVIL and continue to cause and create more problems....then blame all on the VICTIMS such as KHMER and LAOS.
