New US ambassador to the Kingdom named

The United States on Friday named Patrick Murphy as its incoming ambassador to Cambodia, replacing current Ambassador Willam Heidt whose term will soon expire.

A White House statement said that President Donald Trump’s administration appointed Mr Murphy.

Mr Murphy is currently deputy assistant secretary for Southeast Asia with the US State Department.

He has been with the Foreign Service for more than 25 years and served in numerous senior positions in Southeast Asia.

yeah so i was thinking, america has been proven without doubt to turn khmers into criminals so these trainee military are going to be there a while and be subjected to the same influence so what we are going to end up with is some highly trained military abled criminals coming back to cambodia. cute!

I think being able to pass the SAT, TOEFL tests would lessen the chance of them becoming jailbirds in the US.

Probably wrong thread, but prob doesn’t need a thread of its own.

This has been shared by several friends on Facebook.
It follows Hing Bun Heang threatening war against USA - which he now insists he didn’t do.
https://www.voacambodia.com/a/chief-of- ... 36230.html

The gist of the post is that over the past few days thousands of people have been fleeing America in fear to neighbouring countries after the chief of Cambodia army threatened to attack USA. There are likely to be missile attacks by Cambodia inside the next few days.

The comments on the post are quite funny - and are largely taking the piss out of Hing Bun Heang.
