I've heard about this quite a lot. I believe in the initial invasion there was a huge amount of looting. Contrary to what you'd be led to believe, a lot of properties were left completely untouched during the Pol Pot years. While there was a fair amount of wanton destruction immediately after the 1975 victory, things got a lot more disciplined soon after when all those troops were sent back to the boonies along with everyone else. Useful equipment was gathered and warehoused by DK troops. So when the Vietnamese arrived, there was a fair amount of booty to be had. A few years later when Cambodians were able to get a few bucks together they went to Vietnamese border towns and were able to buy back all these pre-75 TVs and record players etc.
I've also heard they did a lot of scrapping, and buildings that had survived the wars (Bokor/Kep/etc) were torn apart for cabling/ copper pipes etc. I think that sort of stuff goes on in any war though, so it's hard to blame any faction.
I don't believe that this was a general policy though and after the first couple of years of chaos the food-security situation here stabilized a lot. What they were doing in the forests I don't know but they weren't very good at it if you compare their efforts to later ones. 8-)

I'm vaguely offended by your choice of words. Therefore, I demand you immediately resign from any employment you have and profusely apologise to all shithole countries.

Now here is an image of happy black people to prove without a doubt that people in shithole countries are wonderful.

Followed by an image of white people with rebel flags with some guys in KKK robes to show that America sucks.

Now don't you feel shamed? And the upside is that I get to come across as morally superior to you cuz I posted feel-good, We Are The World stuff. I'm such a humanist.

Indeed, which is why we are here. :wink:

For better or worse my interactions with the natives are probably more than most. I am currently at a table with salt of the earth types ranging from 2 months to 60 years old.

Keeping in mind this thread, i approached this topic to the oldest man, whose kindly face is that of a leathery walnut.

Do you like barang?

(Smile, handshake) ok!

Do you like usa?

Ok!

Vietnam?

(Some boos from the younger members)

Ok!

What about china?

Ort tay! (Waves finger) no no!


My case studies will continue, but still haven't found anybody who has lived through the bombing and habours any grudge towards the west.
