Chambodia, Thailand clash

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -
Border strikes by Cambodian
forces have killed more than 100
Thais and devastated frontier
villages in recent months, Thai-
land says, and the Thais expect
more attacks. But the motives
behind the Cambodian thrusts
remain mysterious.
In the absence of explanation
from Cambodia, which is keep-
ing a silence that began with
the Communist Khmer Rouge
takeover in 1975, Thai officials
speculate the strikes may arise
from internal Cambodian con-
flict, a linkup with Thai Commu-
rists or other reasons entirely.
THE FIGHTING may have
political consequences for both.
countries. Some analysts say it
may mark another step towards
chaos for Cambodra, which by
many accounts is beset by dis-
ease, matlnutriton and brutality
as well as hostiliti~s with its
eastern neighbor, Vietnam.
In Thailand, some diplomats
speculate that failure by the
government of ;Primre 'MVinister
Tanin Kraivivien to deal with
the border troubles could hasten
a showdown among the volatile
factions within the dominant
Thai military. Young officers,
presumably with higher-echelon
backing, already have criticized
their civilian and military su-
periors and frustration is grow-
ing over the counting casual-
ties.
Nobody here is predicting war,
but Tanin and some senior gen-
erals have warned of retalia-
tion if Cambodians continue to
attack what the Bangkok gov-
ernment claims as its own tern-
tory.
THAILAND has reinforced its
troops along stretches of the

500-mile frontier and Cambodia
is reported to have done the
same. Further Cambodian strik-
es are expected.
In the most recent major in-
cident, on Aug. 2, Cambodian
troops attacked two Thai vil-
lages, killing 29 persons, includ-
ing six women and 14 children,
in what appeared to be well-co

ordinated raids.
With the exception of a few
artillery and air strikes just in-
side Cambodian territory, there
has been no retaliation so far
by the Thais. Protests through
diplomatic channels, including
two notes to the United Nations
over the past four weeks, have
proved fruitless.

It kills your friends, your

fewer people would die.
