OMAGGIO A TERZANI : la Cambogia, le nuove elezioni e un passato da ricordare » Bamboo train

But what can the Western world really do for Cambodia?
The Vietnam War and the anger against the Unites States and their invasive policy that sprung from it were the prime drivers behind the Khmer Rouge madness. Pol Pot and his followers were an extreme reaction to the philo-Americanism practiced by the government. Their vision of communism (a Western ideology) applied to the Cambodian reality led to bloodshed.
Today the country is running on another tricky track: the rushing economic growth boosts differences amid the rich and the poor, corruption is spreading inside the political class, the media are tightly controlled by the CPP and the land dispute problem is far from being solved.
