Cambodia was mainly at peace until Lon Nol overthrew Prince Sihanouk. Up until that time, one could drive to Angkor Wat (Mrs. Kennedy was enthralled with it) or the beach, something that still wasn't possible/recommended the last time I was there in the autumn of '94/spring of '95. The border area was certainly not peaceful, but the fighting was between the NVA/VC versus the Americans/ Vietnam Cong Hoa soldiers. The Cambodians had little to do with it. Kerry's contention that he delivered arms to the Khmer Dau {Rouge} while Sihanouk was still in power is a blatant lie, as they weren't around. (*"the Khmer Rouge didn't take the field until the Easter Offensive of 1972") What is strange is that Kerry was caught with a different lie on the same subject last year. (That they shot at him. You'd think if he was bringing them arms they wouldn't!)

See *Fact and fiction - The Washington Times: Editorials/OP-ED - August http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2004/aug/12/20040812-090520-8656r/ and *Kerry's Cambodia confusion - The Washington Times: Editorials/OP http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2004/aug/12/20040812-090512-6687r/ for the best articles from an impeccable source, I would think.

Kerry is baffling. Of course, a liar can't remember what lies he has told, so they make mistakes; however, he obviously would remember the Khmer Dau {Rouge} problem from last year, but for some reason won't let it go, although it has been historically proven that these incidences could not have happened. The Khmer Dau {Rouge} were responsible for 1 to 3 million deaths depending on the estimator. (1.7 million would be one-fifth of the population) Go to the Tuol Sleng Museum in Phnom Penh. http://www.downtheroad.org/Asia/Photo/2Cambodia_Pictures/9Tuol_Sleng_Genocidal_Crime.htm You won't go back.

* Andrew Antippas served as a Foreign Service officer in the U.S. Embassy in Saigon (March 1968 to February 1970) as the "Cambodia Man" and at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia (1970 to 1972). He spent 32 years with the State Department (1960-92)

*"Finally, concerning the assertion that Mr. Kerry was shot at by the Khmer Rouge during his Christmas 1968 visit to Cambodia, it should be noted that the Khmer Rouge didn't take the field until the Easter Offensive of 1972, when the Vietnamese forces that had attacked the Cambodians initially in March 1970 pulled out of Cambodia to attack the U.S. and Vietnamese forces in Vietnam. Only Vietnamese Communist soldiers were found on the battlefields of Cambodia in 1970-72."
