"John Pilger's work has been truly a beacon of light in often dark times. The realities of our time he has brought to light have been a revelation, and his courage and insight a constant inspiration." -Noam Chomsky
John Pilger vividly reveals the brutality and murderous political ambitions of the Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge totalitarian regime which bought genocide and despair to the people of Cambodia while neighboring countries, including Australia, shamefully ignored the immense human suffering and unspeakable crimes that bloodied this once beautiful country.
Year Zero – The Silent Death of Cambodia
Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia is a 1979 documentary film by John Pilger concerning first the bombing of Cambodia by the U.S. that took place in 1970, the subsequent brutality and genocide that occurred when Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge militia took over, and finally the lack of aid given by the western countries.
President Nixon and Mr. Kissinger unleashed 100,000 tons of bombs, the equivalent of 5 Hiroshimas. The bombing was their personal decision; they illegally and secretly, they bombed Cambodia, a neutral country, back to the Stone Age. And I mean Stone Age in its’ literal sense.
Today, George Bush and Tony Blair are culprit in genocide. They are radical christian nut the most of tha war is raised for Oil and Arm lobby.
The most intolerant people are also the most conformist blinded by ideologoes of nationalism and religiousness . They enjoy privilege and entertainment while the world is burning with poverty, wars and hunger. I am deluded with the life and the world full of ignorant people pretending to have good intentions.That is why I read and watch pages from forgotten history to know velied barabarity of human race.
