Reuters: U.S. navy aid unit told to leave Cambodia

A U.S. Navy aid unit has been told to leave Cambodia, the U.S. embassy said, in a new sign of the Southeast Asian country loosening links with Washington as it strengthens ties with Beijing.

The departure of the U.S. Navy Mobile Construction Battalion - known as the Seabees - meant the cancellation of 20 planned projects, including at schools and hospitals, the embassy said on its Facebook page on Monday.

"Last week, the Royal Government of Cambodia notified the Embassy of its decision to postpone indefinitely the Seabees program," the embassy said. "We are sad to see the Seabees go, but proud of their accomplishments over the last nine years."

Cambodian defence ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat said he was unaware of such a decision.

Now there is a shocker.

China regards Cambodia in its sphere on influence.

It supported Communist Pol Pot all while the Kmer Rouge were eradicating 5% of the population that was ethnic Chinese among other people they were killing.

HEY, YOUNG COMMUNIST. THE KMER ROUGE ARE YOUR PEOPLE. THEY WERE COMMUNIST.

ROUGE MEANS RED.

KMER ROUGE WANTED VIRTUE SIGNAL TO SIMPLETONS LIKE YOU, YOUNG COMMUNIST, THAT THEY WERE ON THE LEFT SIDE1

So did the US.

The US also illegally bombed the Khymer Rouge into existence.

For both China and the US, support for the Khymer Rouge regime, was grounded only in pissing off the victorious Vietnamese.
