As it turned out, not only did Hun Sen stay he forced his way to remain in power post-election. The new government had to include Hun Sen as a second prime minister to avoid his threat of secession and renewed war. 


If the story were true, Hun Sen would be a committed democrat of Kneenex tissues type – thick and soft. He says he told the party to accept the elections’ results, notwithstanding, he says, the “filthy” process. Only those with rocks in their head would accept a loss in a filthy election, while only autocrats and dictators would welcome any elections they win, no matter how dirty they are.

Hun Sen cannot be the Kleenex tissues type. After all, he proclaims himself to be a CPP top strategist. He often refers to conniving schemes and plots he has learned so well from Chinese epic The Three Kingdoms. He has climbed to the top within a communist hierarchy for fourteen years prior to the UNTAC elections. In that period, Hun Sen enjoys absolute power for eight years under a ten-year close control and mentoring of the Vietnamese communists. Would any autocrats or communists like Hun Sen give up power so readily? Unlikely.

Thus, why does Hun Sen choose to reveal this fiction? Why now?

Perhaps he wants others to believe he is a democrat, and more importantly, to agree that democrats ought to accept elections’ outcomes, no matter how filthy their processes are. He can say he has. This would mitigate enormous pressures put on his regime by the EU and US that value little his brand of democracy. It cannot be a comfort for Hun Sen to witness the thrust of western democracies’ intervention in a current political upheaval in Venezuela supporting the country’s opposition and demanding a fresh election. It seems like a disaster being unveiled for an already-anxious Hun Sen.

Perhaps the fiction is just a relief valve for Hun Sen to cope with the intensifying pressures from various quarters. His constant display of power – vulgar verbal abuses, assassinations of critics, movements of troops and military hardware, shootings of demonstrators, intense persecutions of members of the court-dissolved opposition party, and harassments of dissidents, seems only to worsen his stress. The accumulated tensions he has brought upon himself over the years may eventually be enough to push him over the edge.

Fake News You Can Use


It is time some PhD surrounding Tea Banh or the West Point graduate broke their balls answering the minister’s question in the following quotation: a regular election alone does not sufficiently constitute democracy.

While they are putting their neck on the chopping block, they might as well tell the minister to give the international communities some intelligence. They cannot be that stupid to believe everything the small group of his opponents tell them. Tea Banh needs to know even in the old time Khmer ancestors still could come up with proverb that, “Don’t use a flat-basket to cover up the dead elephant”, let alone in an age of advanced information technology when too many people have access to smart phones, cameras, internet, Facebook, etc…

Then again, the man may not be capable of comprehending anything beyond his own fake news.

    But we all know Mr. Hun Sen is very smart and wise. He defeated Abhisit Vejjajiva, the Thai Prime Minister, during the border conflict at Preah Vihear. Stupid Sam Rainsy would not know what to do.

    We also knew that it was Prince Norodom Ranariddh made deal with Khmer Rouge faction, then asked UN troops to leave Cambodia so that they can attack Mr. Hun Sen. And they did attack but lost. Norodom Ranariddh ran like a dog while hundreds of his supporters died in battles.

    Clearly, Mr. Hun Sen is smart, a hero and a true leader for Cambodia.

    I don't get it. The opposition kept protesting in USA and asking for help in Cambodia, yet, Sam Rainsy is a big anti-USA person. He himself professed to be pro-China, supporting China's claim to the South China Sea against USA's Freedom of Navigation act.

    Seriously, USA will never accept nor help Sam Rainsy. Sam Rainsy needs to get lost. He needs to quit politics for good.

    Two years ago, Sam Rainsy said he quitted politics and was above it all. Then in less than a year, he was right back at it. His words were worthless.

    So, you wrote about Mr. Hun Sen's imaginary arrest. Let me match it with Mr. Hun Sen's imaginary's early retirement.

    Years ago, on Topix forum, there was a forum member with the name "Hun Sen" and an avatar of Mr. Hun Sen's picture. He was very wise and reasonable.

    He wrote to me that he wanted to retire early and enjoy his golden years but he must remain in power to protect his family and Cambodia. CNRP kept threatening to prosecute his family, to confiscate his home, his properties. He was riding a tiger and cannot get off; the tiger would bite him. Secondly, if CNRP took power in Cambodia, Kem Sokha will go on a sex spree and destroy all young girls' virginity while Sam Rainsy would plunder the nation's treasure and bring it to Paris to build villas...

    So, he was stuck and could only wait till Hun Manet to be ready to step up as the next Prime Minister of Cambodia. That way, Hun Manet will continue to protect the family and also Cambodia from CNRP.

    LOL... I could not believe CNRP were so stupid. They kept threatening Mr. Hun Sen. Well, they threatening other International bodies too with lawsuits such as Chevron and Facebook. Woahahaha...

    Sam Rainsy's supporters will prevent him from going back to Cambodia this year by donating less than the amount (of 300,000 USD) he asked for (the budget for his return trip).

    Kem Sokha went to jail while Sam Rainsy performed a self-exile. Read the Diplomat's article:

    https://thediplomat.com/2017/10/what-went-wrong-with-cambodias-opposition-party/

    The deal, which was opposed by Kem Sokha but championed by Sam Rainsy, also ushered in a so-called “culture of dialogue” that Morgenbesser says legitimized the CPP’s hold on power and put Sam Rainsy “in a straightjacket.”

    Sam Rainsy’s acquiescence played right into Hun Sen’s hands, according to Astrid Noren-Nilsson, a political scientist who authored Cambodia’s Second Kingdom: Nation, Imagination, and Democracy.

    ----------------
    And then Sam Rainsy stole the leadership from Kem Sokha, by claiming: "Kem Sokha is a coward, cannot lead and would not dare to speak up while in jail."

    Sam Rainsy was pro-China to get support in contesting against Vietnam for Koh Tral, the sea around Koh Tral and also Khmer Krom. Clever Hun Cent stole the idea and became pro-China to get aids, loans, money from China and left nothing for Sam Rainsy.

    China did not want to work with Sam Rainsy and CNRP because Kem Sokha was pro-USA. So now, Sam Rainsy got no support from either China nor USA. That's the perfect example of a snake with two heads playing tug of war in the foreign policy.

    Not even Japan wanted to talk to CNRP because they don't know which snake are they dealing with. Such a poisonous culture in CNRP. No thing good will come from CNRP until one snake head is chopped off.
