Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge

Cambodia, after years of American bombing, degenerates into the killing fields under the Khmer Rouge led by Pol Pot.

The anarchistic regime is responsible for killing up to 2,500,000 people between 1975 and 1979. Cities are emptied and the population relocated to the countryside. Most of the educated people are exiled or killed. Thailand and the Western governments give diplomatic and practical support to this regime because they are opposed to USSR backed Vietnam.

The USA made film, The Killing Fields is based on these events.
