    Is there hope for a better Cambodia if he becomes his father’s (Hun Sen) successor?

    [b]PM’s Son Faces Reform Challenge[/b]
    2011-01-04

    Following his two-star general appointment, critics pressure Hun Sen’s son to clean up Cambodia’s military image.

    Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen has made his fast-rising son a two-star general amid pressure to reform the country’s tainted military.

    Hun Manet, a West Point graduate with a doctorate in economics, was appointed deputy infantry commander-in-chief in the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF).

    He currently serves as chief of his father’s bodyguard unit as well as head of the anti-terrorist unit at Cambodia’s Ministry of Defense.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. But maybe this bad seed will be a lesser evil.

    Maybe Srok Khmer can beef up it’s military for once. The military been a joke since the fall of Angkor.

    Everything has a price tag in Cambodia. There’s no need to beef up the Military when their neighbours and foreign invaders can trade, bribe, and negotiate for Cambodia’s resources. The man seen in the above photograph looks like a lost child trying to fill in daddy’s shoes. I hope I’m wrong. What is a few years influence in the United States when his whole life revolves around corruption?

    True. :) But wouldn’t he have flunked out, even with his dad’s money, if he couldn’t keep up?

    I had the chance to meet and hang out with him once and he was a very nice guy. I was a little intimidated at first but after a couple of shots with him it was all good. He seemed like a very smart and easy going person. He didn’t act snobbish or anything and didn’t need to take the time to converse with me but did so. His father on the other hand intimidated me more then a lil bit. It wasn’t anything he said or did but just the fact it was him. I actually think Hun Manet would make a difference in Cambodia if given the opportunity.

    I don’t know. How did George W. Bush even get into Yale and acquire a Masters degree in Business when he was a D student in high school and could barely speak proper English? Me, thinks Daddy (Georgie Senior) had something to do with it…

    The United States Military Academy is among the world’s leading higher learning institution (undergraduate only) but it does not rank itself against other big names like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, etc. The selection process is rigorous and thorough. In order to apply, a candidate must be a US citizen, get endorsed by his/her state senator and be interviewed in person, which the candidate is judged in all aspects. The academy does not necessary care if a candidate maxed out the SAT and/or is at the top of his/her class. What the Academy looks for are well rounded young men and women with good moral character. He/she must possess the desire to selflessly serve as a commissioned officer in one of the four US military branches upon graduation. The institution motto is: Duty, Honor, Country.

    To give you an idea of how tough the selection is, I know of a person who got rejected twice and his father was a four star US Army General.

    So how on earth did you and I, as taxpayers, paid for Hun Manet’s education at our most sacred and prestigious institution? Well, each year the US government allows a certain number of foreigner to attend West Point. The foreign candidates are the sons and daughters of statemen, which the US has good relation with. Although Hun Sen was viewed as a “ruthless murderer” by many US lawmakers, the State Department down played the concerns. These foreign candidates receive all the special attentions needed from the school and are ensured success with quality tutoring.

    Hun Manet looks like a decent person.

    I’d support him.

    I think that’s how most Americans vote for their representatives, based on looks not credentials

    Hun Manet got the look and the credentials. There nothing wrong, the guy came from West point. You would not see anyone that’s like him.

    George W. Bush attended Yale and Ted Kaczynski aka the uni bomber attended Harvard…

    btw if Hun Manet was the son of an ordinary man, he would have a better chance getting into a ivy league like Yale or Harvard but West Point, absolutely not. You have to give Hun Sen that credit not his son.

    And just because you attended a prestigious school does not mean anything. What exactly has Hun Manet done to deserve to be the next leader of Cambodia except be Hun Sen’s son?

    I didn’t vote for Bush, did you?
    I didn’t vote for Obama either, did you?

    Would you vote for Sam Rainsey? I would never vote for the guy.
    To me, He doesnt look like a decent person.
    kmean om-noy tean.

    I agree with icyfresh. “Hun Manet got the look and the credentials.”

    Giving credit to Hun Sen is fine. He’s Hun Manet’s father.
    Credit should also go to Hun Manet for his achievement.
    He earned it. Or did you think West Point just handed him his degree because he (or Hun Sen) paid for the tuition?

    .

    Also, “look”, it doesn’t refer to the “physical” appearance alone.
