In 1989, Kampuchea was changed to the State of Cambodia, making Hun Sen the Chairmen of the Council of Ministers in Cambodia. On 1993 July 2, Hun Sen began sharing the position of Prime Minister with Prince Norodom Ranariddh, but on September 21 of that year, the Prince asserted his superiority, making himself First Prime Minister, and Hun Sen Second Prime Minister. On September 24, The Kingdom of Cambodia was restored, with Norodom Sihanouk being restored as King, with Norodom and Ung Huot sharing First Prime Minister status with Hun Sen remaining as second prime minister. This continued until 1998 November 30, when Hun Sen once again became prime minister.

Why did Cambodia become a communist government?

User Avatar
During Vietnam War, Cambodian King, Norodom Sihanouk wanted the South and North Vietnam to become one country again. He also allowed North Vietnamese to station in Cambodia. When US came to help South Vietnam fought the North, US overthrew Cambodian King and replaced with pro-American prime minister, Lon Nol who supported US. Lon Nol allowed Idiot Nixon and Kissinger to drop illegal bombs on Cambodia lands. Nixon and Kissinger did this illegally and kept secret from Americans in mainland. These two stupid dogs believed that North Vietnamese were in the location that they were targeted. But they weren't; American bombs Cambodia for about 2-3 years, more than 500,000 Cambodian civilians were killed and injured. Million of people became homeless and migrated to the capital city, Phnom Penh. While the country was in an ugly shape, Pol Pot(a communist leader) pretended to come and help Cambodians. Pol Pot was a Cambodian scholar who studied abroad in France. He opposed the western technologies. He wanted the country to go back to the year that Cambodia was an empire(12 century). In 1975, he demanded for the evacuation of the cities, all people were forced to march to the country sides, to doing tasks on the field with there bare hands. The Cambodian Genocide then took place from 1975-1979. Who to blame: Cambodia, Vietnam, and US(Only the two ******* stupid Nixon and Kissinger).
