Khmer Rouge Ieng Sary, (RIP)

For John, BLUFThis Khmer Rouge co-founder has escaped the judgement of his fellow citizens.

Here is the headline from the Associated Press, today, Thursday, 14 March 2013, "Khmer Rouge co-founder Ieng Sary dies amid trial over atrocities that killed 1.7M Cambodians".

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Ieng Sary, who co-founded the communist Khmer Rouge regime responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians in the 1970s, and who decades later became one of its few leaders to be put on trial, died Thursday before his case could be finished.  He was 87.
A lot of suffering summed up in that lede paragraph.

Yeah......and WE stood by and did NOTHING save Air America and a handful of Ravens. The slaughter in Cambodia is one of America's greater shames.

Steady there.  I flew a lot of sorties over Cambodia in 1973, trying to stem the tide.  Failed, but it was more than Air America and a handful of Ravens.  The 34th TFS was there.  And others.

Glad you said that. I was aware of some SAC type missions....but not TACAIR.

That all said...I STILL say we coulda shoulda done much more.

But then....I also maintain that we should have kept our snoot out of SEA all along. They would have sorted themselves out they have done....all we did I think was sacrifice a lot of great American men. you can see....I grow more cynical and pessimistic with age......and since I laid off of the Koolaid.
