The U.S. government claims that its war against the Kampuchean people ended in April 1975. But it really didn’t.
Aggressive U.S. actions against Kampuchea have continued to take place. Our recent visit enabled us to gather firsthand evidence about one such incident–the bombing of Siem Reap.
Siem Reap, located in the northwest part of Kampuchea between Lake Tonle Sap and the Thai border, was the site of a vicious bombing raid carried out by U.S. Air Force F-111 jets on February 25, 1976. This was more than ten months after the war had supposedly ended.
