Fact Khmer Republic was pronounced in October 9,1970 and its war was against the neoclonialists,Viets aka Viet Cong who occupied its territory. Fact Viet Cong was the identity of the Communist Viets who had wanted to annex Cochinchine post 1954 Geneva Conference.
Fact Viet Cong is nothing derogatory at all as it cited in Viet Communist party documents.
Fact was April 17,1975 not 1978 when Sihanouk’s Khmer Rouge armed and trained by Viet Cong took control of Cambodia. Fact Sihanouk’s FUNK GRUNK assumed its new identity as Democratic Kampuchea after the Holocaust survivor Henry Kissinger had secretly agreed with Hanoi in 1973 in France to bail out on the Khmer Republicfighters who , in fact,defended Cambodia sovereignty and fought the aggressors,Viet Cong, since 1970.
Fact April 17,1978 was the third annual celebration of the Kampuchea Communist Party (founded in 1960) not the Indochina Communist Party nor the Viet Minh predecessor of Viet Cong victory anniversary in boasting its brilliant revolutionary Comrade Pol Pot not Sihanouk.
Fact Vietnam War led by US to stop Communism and defend South Viet Nam that ended in April 30,1975. This domino war had drawn Laos’s minority people involvement in a covert war in the 60′s. Lastly Cambodia was drawn in as the US tactical safety and widrawal back door.
To achieve such plot,Nixon-Kissinger secretly bombed Cambodia.They eventually encouraged Cambodia Parliament to do away with Sihanouk who staunchingly opposed US led war. Pointedly US wanted Cambodia to be modeled after Ngo Din Diem’s South Viet Nam Republic in order to achieve its Domino strategic defense and collaboration beside Thailand and Philippines. Note during the war,Thailand and Philippines profited from serving as holidays rest up and recuperation bases for US fighters. Prostitution mushroomed from Cochinchine toThailand, and then Phillipines. At the end, hundreds of thousand of Amerasian as Viet Cong named “the children of dust” grew up without seeing and knowing who their fathers were.
Wikipedia owes a diligence to correct page on Cambodia Civil War as it appears libelous and incredulous. Please see Wikipedia original below:
The Cambodian Civil War was a conflict that pitted the forces of the Communist Party of Kampuchea (known as the Khmer Rouge) and their allies the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) and the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam (NLF, or, derogatively, Viet Cong) against the government forces of Cambodia (after October 1973, the Khmer Republic), which were supported by the United States (U.S.) and the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).
The struggle was exacerbated by the influence and actions of the allies of the two warring sides. People’s Army of Vietnam (North Vietnamese Army) involvement was designed to protect its Base Areas and sanctuaries in eastern Cambodia, without which the prosecution of its military effort in South Vietnam would have been more difficult. The U.S. was motivated by the need to buy time for its withdrawal from Southeast Asia and to protect its ally, South Vietnam. American, South and North Vietnamese forces directly participated (at one time or another) in the fighting. The central government was mainly assisted by the application of massive U.S. aerial bombing campaigns and direct material and financial aid.
After five years of savage fighting that brought about massive casualties, the destruction of the economy, the starvation of the population, and grievous atrocities, the Republican government was defeated on 17 April 1978 when the victorious Khmer Rouge proclaimed the establishment of Democratic Kampuchea. This conflict, although an indigenous civil war, was considered to be part of the larger Vietnam War (1963–1978) that also consumed the neighboring Kingdom of Laos, South Vietnam, and North Vietnam.
