Doing the same thing over and over and then expecting a different outcome is a definition of insanity...,according to Albert Einstein.

Both parties have same leader CPP Hun Sen, and CNRP Sam Rainsy.

Mr. Rainsy wants to play the hero role, but run into self exile all the time. Awhile in exile maybe Rainsy should take up gun shooting, and attend boot camp to muster up some courage.

Mr. Hun Sen plays the bad role, and trained all his cronnies be like amoeba parasites that feast on any host that invest in cambodia. Beware investors in Cambodia, unless you like investing in a black hole.

Yes, both parties have the same leaders. Hun Sin is in control running the country and slowly destroying the country in the process. Sam Rainsy is there to criticize Hun Sin's policy. The problem is no one can criticize Hun Sinner, not even the international community. How many UN envoys came to Cambodia, and how many did Hun Sin like? None!!

So again, what is CNRP supposed to do? Look at Um Sam An came back and was thrown in jail regardless of his immunity. What can Um Sam An do from jail cells other than waiting for CPP to pass judgement on him. If Sam Rainsy came back he would meet the same fate as Um Sam An.

This is where are at now, Hun Sinner determined to stay in power even if he had to break the law to achieve his goal. And how many people will allow him to do this? If he breaks the law once, he will continue to it again and again because it was okay the first time. And yes, this is how a dictator was created.

Savath Pou from Phnom Penh :

Between the CPP and the CNRP, no more talks, please!

The general Khmer public is sick and tired of the negotiations, the culture of dialogue and the other types of talk between the ruling CPP and the Opposition CNRP which have taken place in Phnom Penh only God can remember how many times already. Have they achieved any positive outcome thus far? None whatsoever!

And now, the Opposition leaders are gathering local and foreign support for their quest in convincing the CPP-led Government to sit down and talk with them again in order to solve all the problems which are seen to be stemmed mostly from either their own stupidity or mistakes.

In truth, the CPP and the Government are given the upper hand only by the CNRP, and definitely not by anybody else. In other words, only the CNRP has made the ruling party and the Government so strong as all of us have seen today.

In concluding my comment, I am asking only a few questions to the CNRP:

Why do you want more talks with the ruling CPP and/or the Government?

Do you want to make them stronger and stronger until they become invincible in the near future?

How can you not see how stupid and how disorganized you are?

Phnom Penh, 23rd June 2016 at 7:35AM local time.
Savath Pou,
Senator Expelled.

What is your suggestion if talks between the 2 parties are not the answer?

Both parties talk about getting the negotiation going and that's about it. Nothing more beyond that. Meanwhile, CNRP is getting punch kick by the CPP. So what is the CNRP supposed to do? Turn the other cheek like Buddha said, don't fight back? How is the CNRP supposed to defense itself? 2017 election is a year away. Even a simple as getting thumb prints, the CPP thugs are looking for trouble. They will find something wrong with the thumb prints. And the CPP will not let CNRP talk to the King or the International community. Fortunately, International Community is not like Khmer King. The Khmer King has forgotten his role and responsibility to the people and country. That's the sad truth.

BTW, how is your friend Phay Siphan? You two were together in the senate in the 90s. I remember both of you got in trouble with the CPP. Siphan decided to defect to CPP from Sam Rainsy Party. I guess he found a greener grass on the other side...LOL
