Duch got 35 years in prison so it's unlikely that he will survive that.
TY Nancy.

I remember the horror of The Killing Fields & the tragedy of Cambodia. I still hold the USA's secret bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam war as partially responsible for the overthrow of Cambodia's government by the Khmer Rouge. I'm glad that the tribunal found him guilty and pray for the souls of the victims.

having witnesses of such horrible crimes and totalitarism is essential for letting people know the terrible consequences of collaboration and betrayal in such context. democracy and freedom is not for granted... everybody should learn from these trials, and remember it.

It took too long to bring him to justice. That said, I hope he lives a long time, and is miserable every day of it.

Cambodia's genocide, Sudan's, Burma's and all the others which are humanity at its most pitiless and savage don't hold a candle to the genocide carried out in this country against the indigenous population here. It was carried out over a far greater span of time, often under cover of treaty or negotiations and no one knows for sure what the real fatalities were, because the earliest murderers didn't keep careful records and the later murderers didn't keep honest ones. I know this is not a competition. Thank God it is not. No one nation can say that their tragic history is more important or that their dead deserve retribution any more than that of another. But I find it disturbing that we romance the initial contact between colonist and native in this country, romance the westward expansion, romance the lies. Call it genocide. The truth is the only thing the dead will hear.
