I LEARNED FROM HITLER – CAMBODIA’S COMMANDER OF MILITARY POLICE

Sao Sokha is not afraid of speaking ” frankly” and in public.

A top Cambodian security official has praised one of history’s most reviled dictators, Adolf Hitler, at a speech in the country’s capital, Phnom Penh.

Commander General Sao Sokha, who heads the paramilitary Royal Gendarmerie and sits on the central committee of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party, said that states that wanted to maintain social order should look no further than the wartime Nazi Chancellor of Germany.

“Speaking frankly, I learned from Hitler,” Sao Sokha said, according to the Cambodia Daily. “Germany, after World War I, was not allowed by the international community to have more than 100,000 soldiers, but the Nazis and Hitler did whatever so they could to wage World War II.”

He claimed the Third Reich’s rise during the 1930s was an invaluable example for Cambodia, after its bloody civil war of the 1960s and ’70s.

On Wednesday, the impoverished Southeast Asian nation of 15 million marked three decades of rule by strongman Hun Sen.

According to Human Rights Watch, Hun Sen’s regime has been blighted by “extrajudicial killings, torture, arbitrary arrests, summary trials, censorship, bans on assembly and association, and a national network of spies and informers intended to frighten and intimidate the public into submission.”

Seems the admiration would likely cut both ways.

HERE IS WHAT SAO SOKHA IS IN CHARGE OF

One response to “I LEARNED FROM HITLER – CAMBODIA’S COMMANDER OF MILITARY POLICE

    I have often been concerned for the physical well-being of Khmer citizens who participate in legal street marches and protest rallies on the streets of Phnom Penh or even the rural roads. There have been notable instances of unprovoked hostilities by Cambodian security forces against people staging rallies and voicing their discontent of their government and/ or garment factory conditions. Numerous innocent Cambodians have been savagely beaten and killed because of the poor leadership of Cambodia’s internal-security chief General Sao Sokha. There is a entire 50-man “Black helmet” assault team operated by the Municipal Governor that is notorious for their extreme uncontrollable behavior. So now we read that Sao Sokha is an admirer of a mass murderer Adolf Hitler. God (Buddha) help the Cambodian people, for they do not deserve such scorn or hatred.
