Infrastructure as a business model. I don't know why they haven't started bundling Internet firewalls and propaganda services... missed opportunity if you ask me.

Anyone remembering Pol Pot and the rape of Cambodia sees that what exists now was built in terror. Surely some Cambodians have access to cell phones and the internet. Did no one see the Sri Lankan MO coming down the infrastructure?
While China will acquire another satellite, I cannot help but see karma in Cambodia's future.

The average Cambodian is an illiterate ignoramus. The country's elite are a tiny minority by any standard. Cambodia is a nation of sheep. Rebellion is highly unlikely, and Hun Sen knows it. Even after The Killing Fields, the Cambodians remained passive. Pol Pot was overthrown by the Vietnamese army, not the Cambodian people.

The Royal family is the only group that could successfully lead a rebellion against Hun Sen, but they won't do it.

Hun Sen was a high ranking officer in the Khmer Rouge. He knows all about terror.

Now selfish boomers want to remove the cambodian government rather than simply offering the dictator a better deal than what China is offering. Why must every decision of America meet a 100% goodness rating on the "moral Meter"? Boomers, grow a conscience and grant the American people their freedom to make what decisions they consider to be within their interests, whether they are "moral" or "immoral", or not.

Supporting dictators is a self-defeating policy. Hun Sen has run Cambodia completely into the ground. The Cambodians themselves have no stake in their homeland at all. Hun Sen has sold it on the cheap to the Chinese. Hun Sen is moldy ape long past his prime. His rule rests on the support of cronies who know nothing about how to run a country properly.

I believe in democracy. Besides, I think it's a much more efficient form of government. Having fresh faces in government is good for a country's development. Meritocracy is also important.

America is a positive symbol to people every where. Why destroy that?

We need fresh faces and meritocracy in the halls of government in America.

What Made america great was the constitution, the idea that the citizens have the right to do whatever they want. The Boomers by doing everything to maintain "America as a positive symbol" have implemented tyranny because doing so have been contrary to American public opinion since roughly 1999 or so. The Boomers by refusing to govern legitimately when the feedback from the people favored stances that were contrary to the boomer preferences have implemented complete tyranny. Boomers have effectively frozen the political system, their only claim that they still have is that the post-cold war world economy is still functioning reasonably well, which is irrelevant to most Americans because most Americans do not benefit from the 1990s-vintage economic order.
