CAMBODIA John Richard Pilger
Hello friends and members of www.FlyerMall.com
This FlyerMall Tubes is dedicated to Cambodia.
My main focus of this article is to sympathize with the millions of people who suffered the terrible events in recent years.
Young Cambodians are experiencing a remarkable turn around, are synchronizing their watches and adapting to the lifestyle of the rest of the world, as evidenced in videos incorporated into this article.
These changes have emerged from a history of terror, misery, genocide, war, refugee camps, hunger, executions, dissplacement of part or entire families.
According to statistics more that two million people were killed within a short period of time.
Survivors of destroyed families are now living in villages together with members of the opposite side, possibly in harmony.
I have included several films depicting the era of Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, among others who authorized the bombings over Cambodia.
There are several survivors, like Phen Tuy and Loung Ung, of this period of turmoil, who are spending their lifetime educating young Cambodians and the rest of the world about the effects of such terrible events such as the Pol Pot and Khmer Rouge.
Of course, they are not the only ones.
Within the films there are other individuals, such as
ABBOT UNG YON, CHHUM AT, CHUON CHHON, YOUK CHHANG.
Needless to say, there are thousands of people who have not publicly exposed themselves to documentary.
However, I would like to mention that I have had the privilege of being acquainted with a family who survived this particular Regime.
My personal assistant, Chantal, is one of these survivors.
The name John Richard Pilger or John Pilger is closely tied to Cambodian history.
His documentary films demonstrate his extraordinary journalism skills.
His narration is intense and captivating.
I would like you to view the films with patience and understanding, keeping in mind that these films were made during the Nixon, Kissinger era, as well as the Pol Pot regime.
Within my conversations discussing the topic of John Pilger and Cambodia, many have voiced their opinion stating their surprise that John Pilger has survived and did not die from natural causes, (if you know what I mean).
John Pilger (John Richard Pilger) has achieved an unbelievable career in journalism and documentary films that will live on in history forever. Enlightening the rest of the world with the truth.
Preap Sovath was born in Cambodia May 25, 1975 one month after the Khmer Rouge took over power of the country.
During the last decade, he has emerged as one of the leading singers in Cambodia, possibly the most famous.

Preap Sovath generally eschews strictly traditional Khmer songs and musical styles,
instead his music is modern style for the youth of Cambodia.
Click on the above link GonTem Senaha and view he performs and entertains the crowd.
As you may have noticed in the video, Cambodians seems to emphasize hand and wrist movements in their dancing.
He performs on many televised anthology-style live concert programmes and holds residencies at Phnon Penh's nightclubs.
Preap Sovath Old Song Non stop
I was introduced to his music by my Cambodian assistant, Chantal.
Lately, Chantal has been trained by me and has become very proficient at the game Backgammon or Tavli.
In fact, I believes that she will become the first female Tavli champion from Cambodia.
I have noticed lately that my article about Tavli has become the number one in Google search, by entering the following key words ( Backgammon Tavli ) in the video search.
This is a small reminder that this game is very popular in the Middle East regions and there are numerous articles and videos related to the game.
Nevertheless, my video has reached number one status in google search.
Although I am very excited that this video has reached the top and appeals to possibly millions of viewers, I wish to remind you that this article is about Cambodia and I prefer that instead of spending time learning Backgammon/Tavli that you should concentrate on the topic of Cambodian and the immense contribution of John Richard Pilger.
You may view the video of her learning the game which needs patience, focus and understanding to be able to think by herself and to make appropriate moves.
On the other hand, I believes that Preap Sovath with his extraordinary talent, appearance and personality would become an international superstar if he were to incorporate some English words in his songs thereby exposing him to the international music scene.
I hope that Preap Sovath reads and takes this advice and when he finally becomes an international superstar and comes to Canada to perform that he would have some time to have dinner with me.
I will personally cook some Cambodian special dishes since I am in the internationl food business and have published thousands of recipes posted on the Goudas Recipes website.

Cambodia Fashion Week
Charlet arrives in Phnom Penh and heads to the first show of Cambodia's innagural fashion week, where some models hit the runway "acting stoned."
It's followed (naturally) by a tranny-zombie after party.
Charlet then meets Phen Chou, a factory worker who was beaten by the police when she led protests for garment factory workers' rights.
Biography: Pol Pot
By 1962, Pol Pot had become leader of the Cambodian Communist Party
Once in power, Pol Pot began a radical experiment to create an agrarian utopia inspired in part by Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution which he had witnessed first-hand during a visit to Communist China.

The Most Evil Men in History - Pol Pot
Within the film is the name Loung Ung
Loung Ung (born 17 April 1970) is a Cambodian-born American human-rights activist and lecturer.
She is the national spokesperson for the Campaign for a Landmine-Free World.
Between 1997 and 2003 she served in the same capacity for the "International Campaign to Ban Landmines", which is affiliated with the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation.
Luong Ung was born in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, the sixth of seven children and the third of four girls, to Seng Im Ung and Ay Choung Ung. Her actual birthdate is unknown; the Khmer Rouge destroyed many of the birth records of the inhabitants of cities in Cambodia.
At ten years of age, she escaped from Cambodia as a survivor of what became known as "the Killing Fields" during the reign of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime.
After emigrating to the United States and adjusting to her new country, she wrote two books which related her life experiences from 1975 through 2003.

Clink on the photo to view the video of LOUNG UNG.
Loung Ung has advocated for equality, human rights, and justice in her native land of Cambodia and worldwide for more than fifteen years. A child survivor of one of the bloodiest genocides of the 20th century,
Loung has made over 30 trips back to Cambodia and she is the national spokesperson for the Campaign for a Landmine-Free World.
Her inspiring books, (First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, Lucky Child, and Lulu in the Sky), have allowed her to speak on the larger issues of war and peace, and how we can all become agents of change in our world.
Her books garnered much positive reactions. On the other hand some criticized her. Apparently, some people are content to sit in the back seat and have nothing but negative things to say.
Loung Ung is a passionate activist for human rights.

Khmer Rouge victims, perpetrators live side-by-side
Up to two million people were killed in the Khmer Rouge regime but only five senior leaders are standing trial.
Survivors still live side-by-side with former members of the brutal regime under which their families were killed and tortured in Cambodia.

Chhang is also the executive producer of a documentary film entitled A River Changes Course (2012), known as Kbang Tik Tonle in Khmer, about the changing social, economic, and environmental landscape in Cambodia.
Among other awards, that film won the 2013 World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for documentaries at the Sundance Film Festival. He received the Truman-Reagan Freedom Award from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in Washington, DC in 2000.
He was named one of TIME magazine’s “60 Asian heroes” in 2006 and one of the “Time 100” most influential people in the world in 2007 for his stand against impunity in Cambodia and elsewhere

The Story of Cambodia Documentary
The world was horrified to learn of the holocaust which had taken place in Cambodia at the hands of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.
This film exposes the hypocrisy of the Western nations which continue to support Pol Pot, despite the atrocities of his regime.
Not only has Pol Pot been allowed to occupy Cambodia's seat in the United Nations, but the Western nations have been secretly selling them weapons for use in their civil war.
Despite the loss of a fifth of their population, the resilient Cambodians have made significant strides to rebuild their society. But they fear the threat of a second Holocaust.
John_Adamska_Miller Full Description: Cambodia, The Betrayal (1990) "One year ago, in a film broadcast around the world, John Pilger returned to the uniquely tragic country of Cambodia in his documentary - Year Ten - which evoked a massive public reponse requesting that their governments provide the embargoed nation with the means to finally end the threat of Pol Pot.
Unfortunately, this film is not a celebration of a Cambodia now free from the fear of returning to that brutal regime.
It's about the betrayal of a people who continue to desperately struggle alone against the ever-growing shadow of Pol Pot's Khmer Rogue."

Travel video about destination Cambodia.
'Cambodia Year Zero', as it became known, was credited with alerting the world to the suffering of the people of Cambodia under the fanatical regime of Pol Pot.
It raised tens of millions of pounds for Cambodia's children - mostly unsolicited - and became the most watched documentary throughout the world.
Michael Carr Cambodia is still affected today by the 70's carpet bombing from US and support / setting up of PolPot regime - a documentary from the archives by John Pilger - Nixon & Kissinger - another two that should be tried for crimes against humanity - even if posthumously
"In our first hours in Phnom Penh we shot no film and took no photographs; incredulity saw to that.
I had no sense of people, of even the remnants of a population; the few human shapes I glimpsed seemed incoherent images, detached from the city itself On catching sight of us, they would flit into the refuge of a courtyard or a cinema or a filling station.
Only when I pursued several, and watched them forage, did I see that they were children.
One child about ten years old – although age was difficult to judge – ran into a wardrobe lying on its side which was his or her refuge.
In an Esso station, an old woman and three emaciated children squatted around a pot containing a mixture of roots and leaves, which bubbled over a fire fuelled with paper money: thousands of snapping, crackling brand-new riel: such a morbid irony, for money could no longer buy everything these people needed."

JOHN PILGER | LOOKING BACK Year Zero (1979)
‘It is my duty,’ wrote the correspondent of The Times at the liberation of Belsen, ‘to describe something beyond the imagination of mankind.’
That was how I felt in Cambodia in the summer of 1979.
The ghostliness of Phnom Penh, the deserted houses, the flitting figures of skeletal orphaned children, like tiny phantoms, the millions of dollars in Cambodian banknotes washing through the empty streets in the monsoon downpour, the stench of death from wells jammed with bodies and the nightly chorus of distress: these are indelible

"Stop the War has demonstrated literally and vividly that there are two great powers in the world.
One power may reside in Washington; the other is the willingness of people everywhere to resist and take direct action. One may have the guns; the other has the numbers.
One may appear to be winning; the other has history and humanity on its side.

Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum Cambodia
I would like to pause for a minute to let you know that if you travel to France, it would be a good idea to visit the Eiffel Tower.
If you are in Italy, you may want to visit the Colossium, however, in Egypt, the pyramides might be of interest to you, and in Spain, the Bull fights, and of course in Greece, the Acropolis, in this instance, if you ever find yourself in Cambodia,Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
I have tried to link you to a website in English, hower when you visit this part of the web, there are several other videos that you may view.
Photos of The Tuol Sleng museum in Phnom Penh is a must place to visit if you are interested to find out the evil practices of the Khmer Rouge regime.
The kingdom of Cambodia is one of three nations within Indochina.
A fertile country with a friendly population that appears to have forgotten its recent dramatic history that comprised French colonial times, Vietnamese occupation and the cruel rule of the Khmer Rouge.
The former palaces of the gods have now been transformed into tourist attractions and regal splendour and shining pagodas indicate that a new era has begun.
Phnom Penh is the reawakened capital of Cambodia and former Land of the Khmer.
It is a wonderful city with all the charm of a bygone age.
During the second half of the nineteenth century Phnom Penh became a French colonial town with wide streets, shops, government buildings, hotels and villas all in colonial style.
Within its park-like surroundings the Temple Of The Blooming Lotus Blossom features perfect harmony with nature.
The Temples of Angkor are the remains of various religious buildings that were built by more then ten kings of the Khmer realm between the seventh and sixteenth centuries A.D.
The Ta Prohm Monastery was built in 1186 in honour of the king’s mother and was the centre of the health care for the entire country.
Twenty kilometres north east of Angkor Thom are the remains of the ancient sanctuary of Bantey Srei, also known as, The Women’s Citadel.
To many visitors to Cambodia this unique and atmospheric temple site is the most impressive of all the country’s historic monuments.
Cambodia is a country that is slowly awakening with a population that is willing to forget its past and look optimistically into a bright new future.
After thirty years of strife and deprivation this south Asian jungle realm is today a fine tourist destination that is friendly, natural and unspoiled.
