A woman sits on top of a chair in the back of a cart, as dozens of families evacuating the northern Cambodia border line the roadside, about 120 km (75 miles) northeast of Siem Reap October 16, 2008. Thai and Cambodian military commanders prepared for talks across their disputed border on Thursday after the most serious clash in years left two Cambodian soldiers dead and 10 Thais in Cambodian hands. Hundreds of Cambodian civilians were fleeing the border area after Wednesday’s 40-minute exchange of rocket and gunfire, a Reuters photographer said, as both sides rushed armour and troops to the conflict zone. There has been no word on the exchange of 10 Thai prisoners, whose existence Bangkok continues to deny. REUTERS/Adrees Latif

    I think Thai gets jelous with Cambodia’s economical progrss as many foreing countries are investing businesses with Cabodia. Thai governenment already knew Preah Vihear bolongs to Cambodia, but it pretentds and used it as a war tactic.
    I’m a Khmer born U.S citixzen, but in case the war erupts, I will be sacrifying to fight with Thai. Enough is enough! How much Cambodian land Thai alredy robbed
    inthe past? How much more it want from us?
    It’s hurt when speaking of a robber, Thai.
