Cambodia Democracy Act

Recommended Posts

The US House of Representatives in Washington, DC, on Monday, passed the “HR 526 Cambodia Democracy Act”, also known as the Cambodia Democracy Act of 2019.

If signed off by th US president, the bill would allow two major sets of action to be taken against high-ranking Cambodian officials the US sees as responsible for undermining democracy and violating human rights in the Kingdom.

Introduced by Ted Yoho, Republican Representative for Florida, on January 11 this year, it purportedly aims to “promote free and fair elections, political freedoms and human rights in Cambodia, and other purposes”.

The bill cited seven findings including “the undemocratic rule of Prime Minister Hun Sen, the enactment of the NGO law, restrictions on the media, the arrest of Kem Sokha and the dissolution of the CNRP [Cambodia National Rescue Party], six unfair and unfree elections since 1991 and ungenuine 2018 elections”.

It also calls for the release of Sokha, the reinstatement of the Supreme Court-dissolved CNRP and the return of its elected seats in the National Assembly.

It is unclear who in the Cambodian government or military would be targeted should the bill become law.

Jesus Christ, the goddamn empire has to fuck with every country on the planet. How the fuck does the US have the right to tell any country how to conduct its own internal affairs? 

The US already bombed the shit outta Cambodia, destroying the country, mass murdering thousands of innocents, and setting the stage for the Khmer Rouge during the Vietnam war years. They gotta fuck with it some more, seriously? 

Fuck the psychopathic US government and its deranged military.

Certainly I agree with your post, but since you refuse to vote - note that this was sponsored by a Republican, and your refusal to vote enables these idiots (and while Democrats are certainly not angels, they are currently less war mongering than the Republcans) to continue on such actions.

Obviously, I do not agree. Please, as if voting for the other wing of the perpetual corporate war party would make any difference. 

Tell that to Libya, Honduras, The Ukraine, and now that I think about it, Vietnam and Cambodia, all countries destroyed and or fucked with by democratic administrations.

  It would likely get us better Supreme Court justices. Unless you like right wing law.

You know, I do not disagree that the dems are the lesser evil, according to my values. The thing is, I am done with lesser evil. Evil is evil, lesser or otherwise. 

“I don’t think so!” “Homie don’t play that!”
