    There was the movie The Killing Fields, about the Cambodian genocide. I never saw it, don't know how it covered it.

    I saw it. It was ugly.
    Too cheap to waste a bullet the Khmer Rouge cadres would tie the victim's hands behind his back and then pull a plastic bag over his head to suffocate him. A little slower than a bullet but just as effective.
    They managed to murder a quarter of the country's population.

    But is it any different than the Crazy Fat Kid in North Korea? Or Castro immediately after he came to power? Even Ortega when on a killing spree after the peace agreement was signed,, although his numbers paled compared to Castro.

    Just the way the commies do business,, 'for the greater good".

    ,Score by Mike [The Exorcist, Tubular bells ] Oldfield - Dith Prahn was played by Hang S nor who won an Oscar for his bit - He was a dentist was one of the escapees from Cambodia - He was murdered in an alley in San fran in the mid 90's.

    Historically inacurate, but a good movie well shot and the score is chilling...


    And then the Wiki tells you he was a gynecologist and killed in LA , in 96

    Speaking of mid 60's, let us not forget Mao's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (66-76), killing between 5 & 10 million Chinese. That's direct killing. Mao's Great Leap Forward (58-61), when farms and industry were collectivized, caused a famine that left some 45 million dead.

    It ain't just the commies. Mankind's history is a bloody tale. From 1491 to 1691, the population of indigenous Americans declined by 90-95% or by around 130 million people. Of course, many died from diseases brought overseas, like STDs & pox. Not that there wasn't plenty of slaughter.

    Not to mention the Mongol Genghis Khan who taught the Chinese, Russian and Arabs a few lessons.
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.
