"Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen accused neighboring Laos on Friday of sending troops into Cambodian land in April and said they must leave by an Aug. 17 deadline and that he was mobilizing soldiers to the border area.

Hun Sen said at a ceremony in Phnom Penh about 30 soldiers from Laos had crossed into the area and that some of them remained there during daytime. He said he had been in touch with the government in Laos.

"I can no longer keep patience," Hun Sen said. "It's not right that we fight each other but if they don't withdraw, we must do it … We don't declare war, we just ask to get our own land back…."

Lol. Seriously? Aren't these people keeping up with the bigger news happening further up north?

They should be stocking up on food, medicines and fuel instead of squabbling over a few dozen acres of dirt.

Actually, Russia, Mongolia, Japan and a very large swathe of China have a lot more to worry about…depending on the wind direction.

Exactly, which means refugees will be moving into Vietnam and Laos' northern border. That's the border that Laos should really be focusing on right now, instead of piddling around with the Cambodians to their south.

If a big wave of refugees comes across, then soon they might not have enough to even feed themselves.

If a food shortage is bad enough when all you have around you are your own fellow citizens, just think how much more chaotic and stressful it gets when suddenly a sizeable percent of the population in your country are brand new foreign refugees.
