Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng (SK) agrees to sit down and chat to Pseng-Pseng Frank Chat (FC). The following is an excerpt.
FC: Welcome to Frank Chat.
SK: It’s my pleasure to be frank.
FC: Your statement above shows you are going all out to ensure Sam Rainsy will not return. Why?
SK: There is no need for him to put himself at risk. There will be some changes in Cambodia.
FC: Oh, how so?
SK: Are you aware that the CPP Central Committee chooses me to succeed Hun Sen, not his son Hun Manet?
FC: Yes, but how did you know that when Hun Sen had hijacked the ballot box and counted the votes himself at home?
SK: Of course, one of my narks informed me of the outcome.
FC: Were you surprised that you were the chosen one, not his son?
FC: Why did Hun Sen hijack the ballot box though?
SK: You must understand the man has been worried sick about the current situation, especially an ever-growing frustration within the CPP. He is holding a time bomb close to his chest; and it is ticking.
FC: Why does he hold it close to his chest?
SK: Well, he’s in charge. He has been calling all the shots, hasn’t he?
FC: When do you think it is going to explode?
SK: Not if I can help it. Because if it does, not only Hun Sen and his families that will go into pieces, so too will the whole CPP including me. I must take charge to defuse it.
FC: Many people believe you are standing behind Hun Sen all the way.
SK: Indeed, I am. They say only a true friend stabs you in the front. I would prefer doing it from the back.
FC: Hun Sen has disarmed all troops particularly those deployed at the borders; all weapons throughout the country are appropriated, stored, and locked in warehouses. And Hun Manet has the key.
SK: There is always an Achilles heel in any person or organisation.
FC: Hun Manet is building up his elite troops with new recruits. His father removed many once-trusted generals from top positions like dead heaps.
SK: That is one of the most important triggers that tick away the bomb.
FC: When is the right time to make your move?
SK: When the internal tension reaches the point of no return, I will take over just before the bomb explodes. The overthrow will give a distinct impression to everyone that there will be changes, or something different is on the card. The US and EU pressures would somewhat dissipate to give the new regime a breathing space. It could be a long breathing space for my pig (Personal Interest Group).
FC: In this scenario, where is Sam Rainsy? He is now asking the people to rise.
SK: Yes, against Hun Sen, not against me. Sam Rainsy could wait until I work out how the 2023 elections will deliver me pre-determined results.

Fake News You Can Use
So, according to Dr Ky Sereyvuth, director of Centre for China Studies of the Royal Academy of Cambodia, there are strings attached to all foreign aid, except some are, some are not. Yeah, right. Does the director know what he is talking about? His mind must be wandering in awe around the enormity and generosity of the Chinese aid.
The muddled doctor also assures his Radio France Internationale listeners that there are only winners in trade – no losers. He may be right for a PhD who adores every ounce of Chinese aid.
Nevertheless, it is uncertain if the director is ignorant, or ignores to mention that a country – in his field of Centre study China – with a huge and persistent trade surplus with Cambodia is a “better” winner – much better than its partner that carries a chronic trade deficit years after years.
