In the latest round of armed clashes between Thailand and Cambodia, one man has been frequently mentioned in the news - Maj-General Hun Manet, who is the eldest son of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.
This is very interesting and a good comparison. The son of the dictator of Cambodia is responsible for the attacks on Thailand. Last year the son of the dictator of North Korea was responsible for the attacks on South Korea.
Thailand has a large amount of money invested in Cambodia, likewise South Korea has a large amount of investments in North Korea. Both countries have paid back the countries that have been helping them by armed attacks against the donor countries. Is this like mad dogs biting the hand that feeds them?
Now North Korea wants to have talks, same as Cambodia wants to have talks. Do these two dictators get together and compare notes?
