It’s a good thing. We should always try to protect.I also think this is part of political propaganda for CPP campaign.Could it be a set up? The victory over preah vihear happened right on the election time. Isn’t it so obvioius? But then again, Thai inclusion over Cambodian sacred ruins wasn’t the first time. satrey Khmer.
