A War in South East Asia

There is a border dispute going on between between Cambodia and Thailand and many are concerned it will launch an all out war. The two sides have agreed to a joint border patrol aimed at preventing a repeat of last week’s clashes which killed two Cambodian soldiers near the ancient Preah Vihear temple, but there was no word on when they would start. Thailand has a 300,000-strong armed forces and a well-equipped air force, but Cambodia’smilitary is much smaller, badly equipped, badly trained and disorganized.
