Profile and Mobil of Pol Pot
Khmers Rouge = Vietnamese
Pol Pot is an abbreviation of
the English word "Political
such is the political nickname of ex-Saloth Sar that Hanoi and
China allotted to him. He was a personal selected by Hanoi and
China to replace Soeung Ngok Minh and Tout Sa Mut, which had just
disappeared under a mysterious condition. From the point of view
of the origin, Pol Pot is nothing Vietnamese, but for the point
of view of policy and profile, Pol Pot served incontestably, the
interest of Vietnamese.
Born in Prek Sbauv (Kompong Thom) in May 19, 1928, he descended
from a comfort farming family. He was the eighth child of a sino-khmer
family (half-caste Chinese).
His family entered in the chronicle royal history since 1925,
when his aunt (? Cousin) Khun Meak, a royal ballet dancer became
a concubine of king Monivong. From this alliance will be born
the princess Khun Yeap who will become the last concubine of king
Suramarith and mother of prince Sirivutdh. Later, the elder brother
(? Uncle) of Saloth Sar, named Saloth Suong became a significant
employee in the royal palate, he married in 1940 with a dancer
of the palate, named Chea Samy, and would work up to 1975. Later,
Saroeun, a sister of Sar, a dancer, became a concubine of king
Between 1934-35, the parents of Sar sent him to live at Phnom
Penh with his brother and his sister-in-law, Saloth Suong and
As a teenager, Saloth Sar often worked in the farm and had fact
followed teaching Buddhism to become monk. During the Second World
War in 1946, Po-Pot joined the movement Anti-French of Hô
Chi Minh. In 1949, he became an underground member of the Indo-China
Communist Party, but at that time (1949) he acquired a purse to
study of radio-electronics in Paris, at once he joined to the
French party communism. When his return to Cambodia in 1953, he
has joined in the Revolutionary Party of Kampuchea and taught
the history and geography in a private school "Kampuchaboth
" and wrote many articles for the left newspaper.
In 1954, when the Frenchs left Indo-China, they have appointed
Sihanouk on the throne, but Saloth Sar is opposite. He founded
1960 the congresses of the Kampuchea Communist Party. In 1963,
he was elected central secretary of committee of the Communist
Party Kampuchea. Feared from reprisals of king Sihanouk, the members
of the Kampuchea Communist Party refuges in the forests where
they met the guerrilla of Khmer Rouge party. In decade 60, the
USA reinforced its military campaigns to destroy the Vietnamese
Communist Party of Hô Chi Hinh, but as of decade 70 the
war was devastated until the territorial Cambodia where the USA
suspected of being hidden the Vietnamese communist forces and
which was the case. The civil war and the bombardment almost lasted
a year and which made numerous victims among the civil ones.
April 17, 1975, Phnom Penh was fallen in the hand of Khmer Rouge.
The reception was however cordial to the odd liberators. Many
Cambodians left in the street to acclaim the winners. The white
flags floated everywhere. But these strange liberators became
suddenly firm, cruel and incomprehensible. The noises of microphones
threatening, required the evacuation immediate of the inhabitants
of Phnom-Penh from their houses, those which are opposite were
been killed at once on the spot, it is then, how the hell of the
Kampuchean people began. In three 3 years 8 months and 20 days,
at last 30-45% of the Khmer population were perished, either of
massacre, or of programmed famine, or disease, or from torture
and I pass
January 7, 1979 when Vietnam invades the territory Khmer, there
remained about 4 million inhabitants on 7 millions (before de
event of 17 aril 1975) The majority of the streets and the villages
are almost deserted and one was happy to meet the inhabitants.
At the beginning of year 79, they estimated that there are more
than three million of Cambodian perished between 75-79, but at
once these figures were lied and contradicted unceasingly. The
reason was obvious; the demographic rate rises incredibly quickly.
In order to justify this doubtful increase, the government of
Hun SEN must reduce the number of Khmer deaths. And one wonders
why? Why of such invention? To understand, it is quite simply
necessary to go in the districts for the length of the river Tonlé Basak such as Chba Am-Poe, Kbal Thnal etc in all the other popular
khmer capitals to see the mass of Vietnamese immigrants freely
coming to settle since the invasion Vietnamese.
And what is even more scandalous, it is that many them are not
simple population but are truths martyrs of Hanoi. They are discrete,
underground, and transferred people who control and invigilate
all the activities of the Cambodians. Any suspicious activity
or verbal, one will immediately made convene, question and often
remove. And since the existence of the election in Cambodian,
many are the Vietnamese who came to support the government in
place. Some of them have infiltrated in the heart of the Khmer
All was prepared, all was set up to trapped the Cambodian people,
the least details thoroughly were studied organized and programmed.
Including the setting in scene of the hostility of Pol Pot with
Hanoi government. In April 1975 and April 1977, Pol Pot had driven
out of Cambodians about 20000 Vietnamese, but his true goal is
to mislead the opinion world to serve the invasion policy of Hanoi
later. In fact, Pol.-Pot had gathered them and taken them safety
to Vietnam. The put in scene was however perfect. Pol Pot leaded
a hostile policy with his old Master and had even killed some
of them. Astonishing way to thanks his Master whom he always submitted,
admired and maintained of the underground relations more than
We wonders, if Pol Pot is really hostile with Vietnam why he did
not massacre all these people as made the General Lon Nol, for
he had all the capacities to do it, but not on the contrary, as
long as the Khmer people are massacred like rabbits, enemy Vietnamese
of Pol Pot is put in shelters and well treated in their long cross
to Vietnam. Later all these people there were came back at once
to Cambodia since 1979. And when the Cambodians asked why there
are too many of the Vietnamese came freely to Cambodia, Hun SEN
answers, them, they are the Vietnamese evacuated in year 1975
and 1979 and they are back to Cambodia. Astonishing! Astonishing
And what is even more striking, it is that, during his throne,
Pol Pot ordered to gather, to collect all the richness of Cambodia
and stored by categories in the diverse surest places, and when
the Vietnamese arrived at 1979 in Phnom-Penh, they know exactly
where all these ammunition were hided and they have nothing to
do else than to transport to Vietnam, by boats, plane, trucks
(especially on national I), that really seems to a mass burglary,
which goes from simple material of recovery until the Khmer cultural
inheritance, such as the old low-relief or statutes
And also the humanitarian aids, intended then for Cambodians who
were dying of hunger, but the poor Cambodian have received nothing.
Because all these boats of ammunition left to Vietnam. Another
disconcerting fact was also obvious, in 1976-1977 when Pol Pot
seems struck Vietnam; it seems as only an easy provocation to
allow the Vietnam to invade the Cambodia in right with the International.
Because Pol Pot knows very well that, it does not have any weight
with Vietnam. According to François Ponchaud, author of
" Year zero ", the pillage of Cambodia starts as soon
as when arrived of the Khmer Rouge = Vietnamese in Phnom-Pehn,
but this author speaks about this as the cleaning of the symbol
of the occident. But if that is right, Is Khmer Rouge has to empty
automatic in Vientam????
Cit one " You Kim Lanh, referred to above, testifies some:
" I remained one month in Phnom Penh to work for the Khmer
Rouges. I was to excavate all the houses and to collect remained
the rice there, to store the drugs coming from various pharmacies.
We charged all that in boats whose crew was Vietnamese. Time with
other, a fire burst downtown, but we did not do anything to extinguish
it. Sometimes, the Khmer Rouges made us demolish the houses out
of wooden, then to put the beams and the boards in heap."
Yeri Savannary, professor, taken refuge in Thailand about 15.10.1975,
confirm the preceding account indirectly: " From the end
April, of the trucks made ceaseless rotations on the road "National
1" driving to Saigon; they transported the television-radio,
motor bikes, cycles of all marks, bicycles, drugs packed up and
weapons of all categories. Close to Neak Luong, approximately
two hundred vehicles waited to cross the Mekong; there was in
particular of Mercédès and the 404. There were also
three or four guns of 105 mm and three trucks of drugs. The whole
apparently left for Vietnam. "
Lao Bun Thai, mechanic, vingt-trois years, taken refuge in October
1975,have worked until May 15 in Phnom Penh, confermed : I saw,
of my own eyes, several trucks, filled to the brim with books,
to pass in front of the embassy of France and to gain north indeed.
I also saw burning on the lawn volumes of the library of the cathedral.
The library of the French School of the Far East, located at a
few hundred meters of the embassy underwent a fate similar on
May 5 in morning. It did not contain much any more of treasures,
because essence had been put in safety in France (political to
remove and material and Khmer inheritance cuturel, as done France
at the beginning of colonization in its politique of creating
Indo-China state. The Vietnameses continuenet quite simply work
of France but in another dimension)
Emptied its population, stripped its goods, Phnom Penh, capital
of Cambodia since 1865, pearl of the South-East Asia, with the
broad shaded avenues, became a phantom city, turning over little
by little to the forest... De many lawns were covered with banana
trees, so that no inch of ground is lost
Several refugees crossed Phnom Penh last months (1975), they estimate
that the city hardly counts more than 20 000 inhabitants, including
only Khmer Rouges and their families. The workmen live in the
peripheral districts, close to their factories, but cannot enter
enville. The unmarried Khmer Rouges are grouped: the boys live
on a side of the street, the girls of the other. Various ministries
for the government révolutionnaireont a personnel reduced
to the bare minimum; the majority, do not even have offices.
The few diplomats of accredited socialist countries with Phnom
Penh find the life hard: they cannot leave their embassy. Three
times per day, a jeep bring their meal to them; they have any
distraction, no personnel with their service, wash themselves
their linen, etc " Every two weeks, Friday, a plane of the
Chinese CCAC makes it possible to the foreign diplomats to go
to take a bowl of air and freedom in Peking... Since September
1976, they can also use the new air line connecting Phnom Penh
to Hanoi. Only one newspaper in language khmère of four
pages, Padévath (Revolution), appears every fifteen during
the days and diffuse only the news conceiving the construction
of the country. And those which live in the East, the border Vietnamese,
often saw on stolen planes of Kampuchea towards Vietnam.
Between the 09.12.1978-23.12.1978, the American journalists, Mrs
Elizabeth BECKER, author of book " Tear of Kampuchea " and her two other colleges, Richard DZIMAN and Malcolm CALD WELL,
were invited to Phnom-Penh. They were accompanied to visit Toul-Sleng,
but as Mrs Elizabeth BECKER saw the register of the prisoners,
she was very surprised to see the names of leaders of the Communist
Party Kampuchea who were also imprisoned, tortured, confessed
wrongly and through, then massacred. In May 1977, 400 Khmers Rouge
tending Khmer were captures and sent to Toul Sleng, they were
been forced to confess as the Vietnamese agents secretes. At 22.12.1977,
the journalist, Malcolm CALD WELL, was assassinated in his hotel
with Phnom-Penh, because he probably saw what one should not see,
and which quicken besides the departure of Elizabeth BECKER and
Pol Pot was not a pupil shining but he was a pleasant and correct
companion, nothing to see with the dictator, and genocide regime,
which he directed. He remains all his life in a species of darkness.
His behaviours whatever policies or relational remain thus unintelligible
and contradictory. For much, Pol Pot is of a radicalist, nationalist
and xenophobe, especially with Vietnamese. But in reality, Pol
Pot served only the policy absorption of Vietnam on Cambodia and
this until his last breath. Remember about his sudden appearance
can of time before its death, without anybody seeks it, however
it was a subject of research during many years without wine. All
that seems of cause, to much close with the put in scene, well
calculated and faked.
Why he serves Hanoi? Was he been undergone the manipulation from
Hanoi? Which are the promises that he obtained and concluded with
Hanoi, between years 63-75... where he was so close with China
and Hanoi? According to David P. Chandler, Hanoi seemed to grant
the cordial confidence to Pol Pot. This secrecy remains total
until now, however these mysteries could be to clear up if Pol
Pot would have been jaded and questioned by the International
Court. We supposed that Pol Pot has probably concluded an accord
with Vietnam to change the Cambodia into the common stat the "
Indochina". Besides, it was a lie and poisonous promise as
suffered the leaders of the South Vietnam and others.
But all is doubtful, including the behaviour of the world of Human
right. But which tries us to protect? Which is application of
UNO in this crime by neglecting all? And after that, what one
can still defend the value and the human right? If it is really
the question, the International world has any more right to judge
anybody, neither Hitler, nor Auschwitz and even less Milosevic.
Why so much of hypocrisies? Why so much of injustices? It would
be said that these people, known as correct and defendant of the
human right, rather do not defence that of the interests and not
the opposite! They are really ashamed!
Logically, Pol Pot has no much interest to serve Hanoi, neither
on the religious level, nor on the ethnic level and even less
on the relational level, because Vietnam and Cambodia was always " enemy hereditary " number one. And much of Cambodian
knows the character crafty, dishonest underhand of the Vietnamese
people. Because all the Vietnamese who came to Cambodia are only
bad individuals, of which criminals, robbers of the tricks and
I pass... The Cambodian and certain historians know why Vietnam
government send enormously the bad individuals to Cambodia. This
was always the strategy politics of the Vietnam to facilitate
the absorption of Cambodia. It means that they want to cause the
disorder in the Cambodian society to find the occasion to invade
the Cambodia. During the regime of the Lon Nol, each time that
one stops a delinquent or a saboteur, they were the Vietnamese.
And the Khmers reject categorically this caricatured tricks and
underground of Vietnamese. The Cambodians always thinks that Vietnamese
people is a strange race graft in its blood and their flesh the
cunning, the craftiness, the dishonestly, the treason, besides
they never proved the opposite. Then why Pol Pot respected and
received order from Vietnam.
In the crisis of the Cambodia the French has a main responsibility.
The consequent is heavy. The French policy is incontestably destructive
suicidal for Cambodia and Laos peoples. The shock of socioculturel
was catastrophic for these people, which have behaviours and idealism
too much different, and the weakest and the honest ones have paid
the full price. But the responsible French pretended to see nothing
and did not do anything for stopper this social haemorrhage; on
the contrary they inserted the vintage more and more while placing
the Chinese and Vietnamese immigrants in the tops of the Cambodian
society. In the eyes of the colonizers, there is nothing else
could count on than to makes and robe the money from these poor
peoples. The successive crises in Cambodian result from the perverts
consequent of the French policy, which continue, prolongs until
now without any exit And what makes the French? Nothing, more
they blame the Cambodians being responsible of their fate. It
is immoral and inadmissible! Of which right can one rot the life
of others at this point?
Khmers are generally the honest, simple people and little materialism.
They are communautirism people, so they are not at all individualism
and they like to live from day to day, without too concern of
the following day. That is the opposite of the Chinese, the Vietnamese
and Europeans. So, when the Chinese and Vietnamese immigrant came
in mass in Cambodia because of the French colonial policy, the
Khmers were lost before. France entrusted the commercial field
to the Chinese and the administrative domain to the tricks Vietnamese.
And the revolted and honest Khmers are stripped of all the rights.
They are mistaken and regarded as inferiors and are stupid.
Apart from all the mistakes and critics which the world caricatured
to the Khmers, remember that the Khmers had already built a powerful
and a spiritual society with their way. A dignified and human
society, so closed to perfection which no nation else in this
world can does as much. But since the foreigners came to invade
Cambodia and to want transformed, the Cambodia became unceasingly
a hell. Remember that, the Khmer country is not your playground
and the Khmer people have the right to live like you. It is not
because they are different from you and from the Vietnamese whom
you want to remove them.
The conflict of shock socioculturel in Cambodia is not registered
as fatalist, but it is necessary to find the cause exact of this
disease to be able to treat it correctly and effectively. If not,
the massacre will continue without end until one or other will
disappear. The tricks, the ambitious ones can however live with
those, which are correct, but it is necessary to find a system
political and social suitable and effective to protect and to
make the justices to those who are the most fragile and weaker
to avoid the inevitable one. Since the implementation of the French
policy of design of Indo-China, the indigenous Khmers are stripped
of all, they impoverished and exposition to any kind of bad intention
of the incorrect people such as the Vietnamese and the others.
They were born, they are all human beings. They have also the
right to live as you and me! Returns Justice to those which one
owes and not opposite! The problems which are invisible with the
eyes, it is necessary sees it with the heart and the observation.
Since centuries and centuries, the wise have established the order
of spiritual and moral to overcome the human society, it is not
wise to boulevard and scorn this low if we don't want to leave
to next generation an anarchistic and immoral world where demure
all the terrify horrors of the world!
Looked at them,
these few peoples can destroy the lives of a whole country
Pol Pot (Saloth
Sar), sino-khmer, ex-associate of Yuon Hanoi, 3 million
dead among the civil innocent. Manipulated or misled, he
will always the responsible of the genocide on the Khmer
current associated of Yuon Hanoi. It continues work of its
Master Hanoi. In 23 years of the power, it transfoms Cambodia
into a kingdom of misery and chaos. Deaths indirect are
numerous. The total of the ministries are froze, especially
in the ministry of education and the culture.
A manipulated and abandoned animal of Youn Hanoi. He is
categorieof Chea Sim or Hun Sen etc..Them, they kill for
the pleasure of killing and knows nothing why they kill.
But they remain as the criminal forever.
Those, they kill the human beings as butcher kill his animal. They
are criminals without goal and been manipulated, but they remain
always criminals. They, they kill only for the pleasure of killing
without benefice anything else and dead in its turn, without anything
to understand. But what we do with the one who manipulate and organize
this crime! Remember the parasite and the micros are dangerous and
mortal for the beings human, one never sees them with the eyes,
they are invisible, but they are there and they remain dangerous!!!
Those who kill without conscience and those who plans the crime
to get benefit from, there are many in Cambodia. If the world does
not move, this kind of drama or even more consequent will reproduce
and will still reproduce and is the innocents who become victims
of this crime.
