    I kinda feel you. I think Asians in general are whacked up in different aspects. I don’t think each Asian nationalities can stand on their own and look good, but have to stand together. That’s why it’s easy to call us Asians. You’d be dammned to categorize Mexico, Canada, and US together. I say I’m Khmer, and that’s it. Thai ppl aren’t better off. Ya expect them to be better off since they didn’t have war. Chinese guys are geeks and their women run off to white guys like flies on trash.

    I do like being mixed becuz I have less pressure and less blame. If full Khmers don’t give a damn, I don’t look bad if I don’t give a damn. Why should I try harder if the real Khmers don’t?? Right now, regardless of the war, Cambodia is looked at as a joke. Why the hell are we hurting each other?

    While i live in washington i see both world of khmer the rich n the poor. The rich they like to talk bad about the poor unstead of trying to help each other n the worst thing that they say to me is those people(poor khmer)is not ur kind. The poor all they want to do is to rip each other off. At first i thought how good my life would be growing around khmer but now that i know khmer im happy n lucky that i didnt grow around them. The khmer who didnt grow around khmer, these are the people who want to help khmer people n does see everyone equal cuz they dont care if ur poor or rich in the end these are all my people n im khmer good or bad my main goal in life now is to help the people in srok khmer.

    It looks like the Viets are taken to China and Cambodia. But all other countries transport (Smuggle) them to Thailand. Including from Cambodia.

    If the world community has a soul, it would crush these operations! I know we havnt ever stopped drug smuggling. But this isnt done in the bathrooms of peoples homes .. it’s done right out in the open, at storefonts, with salesmen out front, barking customers down to come on in! Just make sex or protitution of a minor child a capital crime.. with automatic death penalty!!! That would put a huge dent in these sick operations.Film anyone involved including photos of corrupt poloticians and cops who own some of these brothels and any govornment border police who are in on it and post it all on a websisite for the whole world to see and shame them!

    That’s why it’s happening. It simply wouldn’t happen if Khmer society were really opposed to it. Even though we all sit around here talking about bad it is, more often than not, Khmer guys laugh about it. You see their smirks when they talk about going there. Khmer women forgive and let it go as well. They know what their men are doing over there.

    Human traf.ficking and underage prostitution (of girls AND boys ) thrive in lawless Cambodia because they are extremely lucrative and because they are protected and/or operated by powerful Cambodian officials and Mafia-like interests.

    It also thrives because both the supply and the demand are very healthy.

    On the supply side, the widening gap between the rich and the poor ensures that there is a growing supply of “fresh meat” because of both poverty and envy.

    In the past, poverty was the main reason why Cambodian parents or uncles/aunts resort to selling their children/nieces into prostitution.

    Nowadays, poverty is only one factor. In what is now an extremely materialistic society, more and more Cambodian parents do it in order to “keep up with the Joneses”.

    On the demand side, the level of corruption ensures that local well-heeled men (and well-heeled women who no longer need to travel to Thailand to be “serviced” and have their pick of more and more local male entertainers from famous singers like Soch Mach to the gyrators we see in all DVDs) can demand and afford younger and younger “virgins”.

    The corruption also ensures that foreign pedophiles can buy their way out of trouble, if caught. Locals are almost never prosecuted, unless a few poor ones are caught raping their young nieces or nephews. The fact that anybody can get an entry visa for $20 on arrival means that any sex tourist or deviant has helped turn Cambodia into one of the top sex destinations into the world.

    For sex slavery to ease, both the supply and the demand must be reduced.

    They will not go down any time soon in Cambodia.

    Too many financial interests are at stake.

    By being so outspoken, Cambodia’s former Minister of Women’s Affairs Khmer-American Mu Sochua (now Deputy Secretary-General of the Sam Rainsy Party) was resented by many Khmer men (including Hun Sen) but admired by many Khmer women inside and outside Cambodia.

    At a minimum, we can keep the issue at the forefront of everybody’s mind so that the US government continues to monitor the situation in Cambodia and does not turn a blind eye.

    The closure of the notorious Svay Pak (aka km11) as depicted in the video link came as a result of international pressure.

    The underage sex trade has merely gone underground, not disappeared.

    We can only influence policies indirectly.

    The Cambodian government has a lot of contempt for overseas Khmers who criticize their policies or them.

    The Cambodian government will not listen to us but will at least make an effort to clamp down on the most outrageous acts of pedophilia and other things, as a result of pressure from various governments.

    How do we keep the issue at the forefront of people’s minds?

    (1) by doing what we are doing right now: having meaningful discussions about the issue.

    (2) by not being ashamed to raise the issue in public forums, at college or wherever, i.e. by not worrying that we are giving Cambodia a bad name, by publicizing a violation of human rights that brings shame to Cambodia and all of us. By keeping quiet for fear of bringing shame to Cambodia and Khmers, we are not helping. It is tantamount to protecting incestuous behavior or all kinds of abuse (e.g.. domestic violence) for fear of bringing shame to the family.

    The more people know the truth about Cambodia, i.e. how bad Cambodia is, the better.

    The leaders may start thinking twice about going too far and more and more pedophiles and sex tourists may start thinking twice about coming to Cambodia.

    The relevant international authorities may think twice about their “softly, softly” approach in Cambodia for fear of upsetting the Cambodian government.

    i finally watched the youtube clip and it disgusted me. especially that cambodian minister. why so many cambodian politicians sound so alike? they just open their mouths and blab garbage, are these guys even educated? the only message they seem to convey is that the problem is not theirs, it’s impossible to fix, lets just leave it as is, etc.

    Russian businessman arrested for alleged child sex abuse in Cambodia
    Alexander Trofimov, the chairman of an investment company, was arrested Wednesday at Cambodia’s coastal city of Sihanoukville, said police Maj. Gen. Bit Kimhong, director of the Interior Ministry’s antihuman trafficking department.

    Trofimov allegedly had sex with five girls in 2005 and another one this year, Bit Kimhong said, adding that the girls were between 12 and 18 years old.

    In September last year, Trofimov’s company received permission from the Cambodian government to develop an island off Sihanoukville into a tourist resort with an initial investment of up to US$300 million (€211 million).
    The island — Koh Puos or Snake Island — is located about 800 meters (a half-mile) off a popular beach site in Sihanoukville, about 185 kilometers (115 miles) southwest of Phnom Penh.

    If the Russian had sex with five girls in 2005, why wait until now to arrest him? Is that because he has refused to pay the amount asked for?

    It is a shame and I’m sure it makes everyone sick and mad when hearing this continuously happening in Cambodia. Sex trading has been going on for years. It’s not a new news. It is among main issues we are facing such as poverty, corruption, and democracy. But, is there a hope for resolving or reducing the issue? are there people working on it or is it being ignored to get worse?

    Khemara15 has abundantly enlightened us with the facts of the problem. He is right. It is very important to know the factual problem and its root cause. From there, we can analyze it and find solutions.

    Optimistically speaking, the governement is working in close relation with NGOs in combatting this sex traff.i.c.k.ing. It is a good idea to bring it up and let it be heard/known to the international communities to get their attentions. This way surely puts pressues on our Government to prevent and do something about it. Combatting human traff.i.c.k.ing costs the government close to nothing. They have interest in threatening NGOs working on freedom of expression or corruption, but not on human traff.i.c.k.ing. Optimistically, it is a good sign to improve on this issue. In 2004, Cambodia was at Tier 3, but now we are at Tier 2 (classified by the US State Department based on their legal systems and government measures to combat human traff.i.c.k.ing). Comparing before and now in regards to the issue, there is an improvement.

    There is an old saying ‘Help yourself, and God will help you’. I usually say ‘help yourself, and others will help you.’ Mainly, we’ve gotta help yourself. It’s good to not fear of bringing shame to Cambodia in order to have others know and help us. But imo, it’s only temporary and usually for emergency. We cannot depend on international communities and NGOs eternally.

    The solutions to the problem, imo, are 1) poverty reduction, 2) improvement of khmer morale, 3) effectiveness of law enforcement. All are linked if we want to change our image. Poverty is the main cause (1) but illiteracy or lack of information are also the causes (2). This is why we’re seeing our morale is weakening. The issue becomes harder to combat when it is linked to the issue like corruption (3). If we have enough commitment to improve ourselve, we don’t need international attentions. But, it’s not the case now. That’s why letting the world put pressure on our government is probably the best choice, so that our government can be more committed to combat the human traff.i.c.k.ing. But, mainly WE, government and people, must be committed to help ourselves.

    Just my 2cents.
