Don’t Force Nation to Pay Country That Bombed Them

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Don’t force Cambodia to pay back America for the damage America itself caused.

During the Vietnam War, America carpet-bombed Cambodia, killing citizens, destroying food supplies, and starving immeasurable numbers. Now the United States is demanding that Cambodia pay half a billion dollars to make up for the food loans the United States lent during the conflict.

Cambodia should not have to pay for the damages another nation inflicted upon it. The nation is still struggling to come back from the death, destruction, and starvation of the Vietnam War, as well as the deadly and brutal regime that followed.

America argues that it fought in Vietnam and Cambodia for freedom and democracy. The United States may very well lose the moral high ground it seeks to spread, however, if it forces a nation to repay for the damage it has caused. Sign the petition and demand that Cambodia’s debts be forgiven.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

Decades after U.S. bombs destroyed Cambodia and killed countless citizens, the United States is demanding that Cambodia pay back half a billion dollars in loans the United States lent. Cambodia should not be forced to pay for the destruction and death America itself caused.

While our government argued that it fought to spread democracy in the Vietnam War, we killed and starved millions. To force the country that suffered to pay the nation that bombed them completely goes against all American values. It will not help the nation of Cambodia, but hurt it, sinking it into deep economic despair it may never escape. I demand that Cambodia’s debts be forgiven.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
