    Khmer Rouge former leaders charged with genocide

    ‘We Only Killed the Bad People’: 2 Khmer Rouge Leaders, Forever Linked https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&source=undefined&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwjos66nh9neAhUF66QKHVxNADAQzPwBCAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2018%2F11%2F16%2Fworld%2Fasia%2Fkhmer-rouge-nuon-chea-khieu-samphan-genocide-cambodia.html&psig=AOvVaw1eZn-sJndIjYQW0dhtwL7B&ust=1542462657819617 While Mr. Khieu Samphan clung to his defense that he was “not aware of the heinous acts committed by other leaders,” Mr. Nuon Chea remained defiant and contemptuous to the end. In his final statement to the court, he pointed to his 500-page closing brief, including 4,000 footnotes, which his lawyer, Victor Koppe, said presented the real history of the Khmer Rouge, “and not some quote-unquote fake history.”

    Khmer Rouge former leaders charged with genocide

    Although Cham Muslims and ethnic Vietnamese died in large numbers, the UN Convention on Genocide speaks of "intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group". So prosecutors at the tribunal tried to prove that the Khmer Rouge specifically tried to do that to these groups - something some experts, including Pol Pot biographer Philip Short, say they did not. During the trial, a 1978 speech from Pol Pot was cited in which he said that there was "not one seed" of Vietnamese to be found in Cambodia. And historians say that indeed a community of a few hundred thousand was reduced to zero by deportations or killings. Apart from being targeted in mass executions, Cham victims have said they were banned from following their religion and forced to eat pork under the regime.

Khmer Rouge leaders found guilty of Cambodia genocide https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&source=undefined&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwjo1_CdjtjeAhVL2KQKHUWnAVwQzPwBCAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.com%2Fnews%2Fworld-asia-46217896&psig=AOvVaw3V0YjCOD2yLo-YSOiEAN3S&ust=1542430156759013 They sought to create a self-reliant, agrarian society: cities were emptied and residents forced to work on rural co-operatives. Many were worked to death while others starved as the economy imploded. During the four violent years they were in power from 1975 to 1979, the Khmer Rouge tortured and killed all those perceived to be enemies - intellectuals, minorities, former government officials - and their families. - It seems they were French educated academics, a legacy of French indochina colonialism? Has anyone been to the area or visited the memorial sites? is it like Auchwitz? a major tourist attraction? It appears there was significant debate around if what they did could actually be classed as Genocide

    Bye bye Treason May?

    yes, they are going for an 8 year (indefinate) can kicking tell the public the nothing will happen until we negotiate a canada style trade deal which will take years so it all gets kicked into the long grass for 8 years until its all forgotten about and any mass protest risk is diffused. Those cabinet ministers were likely told "this is in the national interest" ie "national security" leave or remain = 50% population mass protest + some counter protests or fudge it so more time is bought and there is some placating of both leave & remain

    All its about is diffusing social division over leave / remain and preventing mass sustained countywide peaceful protests by millions of people. (its not policeable) if anyone thinks millions of people wont come onto the streets and disable a capital city / country take a look at the millions who turned out in paris after the Bataclan attack.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Of course, I will wager extensive training has taken place over the last 2 years at military barracks up and down the country, with the aim of controlling mass countrywide peaceful protests by millions of people the reason for the scum fudge /and attempt at an 8 year can kicking is purely because as someone mentioned on this thread, going with leave or remain would likely see millions marching on westminster. It a very real risk they have been shitting themselves about since the referendum aftermath There has probably been a myriad of secret Cobra meetings about it. v https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6147101/Police-draw-plans-call-ARMY-no-deal-Brexit.html

    Bye bye Treason May?

    We were always going to be betrayed i could see it from day 1 i have had to wait 2+ years for all those who believed the bullshit to actually see for themselves all that remains is sustained mass countrywide peaceful protest

    Bye bye Treason May?

    National interest / security I strongly suspect they were told "this is in the national interest" i said from day 1 we would be betrayed and all they were doing is buying time to prepare the police and army at barracks up and down the country for millions of people coming onto the streets in sustained countrywide peaceful protest.

    Big explosion at convenience store in Leicester

    Three men accused of the murder of five people in an explosion at a shop had hoped to claim a £300,000 insurance payout, a court has heard. The blast in Leicester on 25 February destroyed a supermarket and the flat above it, where a family lived. A court heard shop worker Viktorija Ijevleva "knew too much" about the plot and was left to die in the fire. Prosecutor David Herbert QC told Leicester Crown Court that Miss Ijevleva, who was Mr Ali's girlfriend, assisted the defendants in obtaining insurance for the shop but was left to die in the explosion because she "knew too much". "The explosion they caused was created with an intention to kill," he told the jury.

    Knives are so yesterday, crossbows are where it’s at now

    So the husband goes to put a box in the shed and finds the ex husband hiding in there with a crossbow he legs it into the kitchen shouting "run run run" and the pregnant wife at the sink gets shot in the torso with the arrow missing the baby and going up into the heart Dr's operate with arrow still in place and save the baby but the wife dies Husband must be feeling a real coward, should have charged straight into the fucker

    I'm concerned about a sword ban too, with all the knife crime the kneejerk appeasing reaction will be to ban swords for collectors or martial arts practitioners
