My dear Kacvey,

What do your students feel about the “private visit” by the deputy prime minister and minister of interior to France while the “Parisian exiled” is visiting his supporters in the US, and the crude from Apsara oilfield is in Indonesian custody?

Going through the following reporting:
– Cambodianess: Ministry Rules out Kheng Meeting with CNRP
– The Cambodia Daily: ក្រុម​ឃ្លាំមើល​ថា​លោក ស ខេង បង្ហាញ​ពី​គំរូ​ល្អ​ចំពោះ​ការ​ផ្ទេរ​ភារកិច្ច​ពេល​លោក​អវត្តមាន​ពី​ការងារ
– Cambodianess: Authorities to Treat as Offense the Rumors Spread re: Interior Minister Sar Kheng
– RFA: អ្នក​វិភាគ​ថា ​លោក​សម រង្ស៊ី ​បង្ហោះ​សារ​ឱ្យលោក​ ស ខេង​ ចូល​រួម​បង្កើត​រដ្ឋាភិបាល​បង្រួបបង្រួម​ជាតិ​មិន​អាច​ទៅ​រួច​ទេ​
– VOA: អ្នក​នាំ​ពាក្យ​ក្រសួង​មហាផ្ទៃចោទ​លោក សម រង្ស៊ី ថា​ផ្សាយ​ព័ត៌មាន​ក្លែងក្លាយ​ពាក់ព័ន្ធ​លោក ស ខេង
– The Cambodia Daily: មន្ត្រី​ក្រសួង​មហាផ្ទៃ​កំពុង​ស្រាវជ្រាវ​ចាប់​អ្នក​បំភ្លៃ​ព័ត៌មាន​ថា​លោក ស ខេង មាន​ជំនួប​ជាមួយ​លោក សម រង្ស៉ី នៅ​បារាំង
one can’t stop wondering how high would be the level of panic and the intensity of fear that the weak strongman must be experiencing, on top of the pandemic, Delta variant, increasing number of infected citizens, deaths, lockdown, state of emergency, bankrupt economy, closed schools and factories, low level of water in the Mekong and Tonlé Sap during the raining season, prisons filled with political prisoners, isolation in regional geopolitics …

Meanwhile the deputy prime minister is maintaining his silence letting his ministry speculating at the same level as those who speculate on the issue. Is he reluctant to extinguish the fire because his firetrucks are out of commission?

Paris has always been a favorite place for Cambodian politicians and enemies to thrash out their divergence like, the meeting with Sihanouk in December 1988 , 1991 Paris Peace Accords, secret meeting leading to the return to Cambodia of the “Parisian exiled” in 2013 and the creation of the national election commission that has become a shoe shiner to the weak strongman …

Does the deputy prime minster have historical medical records in France similar to the weak strongman in Singapore in 2017 and in 2019?

It looks like the chess game has entered a final stage where, with less pieces on the board, the weak strongman is playing desperate defense with the clock keeps on ticking.
