Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This insightful program clearly reveals why John Pilger was once named Journalist of the Year and International Reporter of the Year based upon his lengthy coverage of the Vietnam War. Viewers will learn how Cambodia has coped since the Khmer Rouge seriously damaged its economy, and how the people are struggling with both starvation and disease. Pilger acknowledges that Vietnam's invasion of Cambodia has benefited the country to some degree, but he carefully notes the negative consequences that will occur once the Vietnamese army leaves. This video is appropriate for high school and adult viewers.
