Duch, the first of five Pol Pot cadres to face trial for the 1975-79 reign of terror in which 1.7 million Cambodians died, said the Khmer Rouge would have faded if the U.S. had not got involved in Cambodia.
"Mr Richard Nixon and Kissinger allowed the Khmer Rouge to grasp golden opportunities," the 66-year-old former jailer said at the start of the second week of his trial by the joint U.N.-Cambodian tribunal.
Duch, whose real name is Kaing Guek Eav, was chief of the notorious S-21 prison where more than 14,000 enemies of the revolution were tortured and killed.
Last week, he apologized and begged forgiveness for his crimes. Duch faces life in prison if convicted on charges of crimes against humanity, war crimes, torture and homicide. When asked by a judge to explain how he joined the Khmer Rouge, Duch gave a long, rambling answer that included references to former U.S. President Richard Nixon and ex-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
Cambodia became a Cold War battlefield in 1969 when the Nixon administration began bombing routes in the east of the country that Soviet-backed North Vietnamese troops were using to transport men and supplies for their war against the U.S.-backed regime in Saigon.
In 1970, then Prince Norodom Sihanouk was ousted in a coup led by U.S.-backed General Lon Nol, who cranked up the war against Vietnamese and Cambodian communists.
Sihanouk later formed an alliance with the Khmer Rouge and he urged Cambodians to join the fight against Lon Nol's regime, which fell to Pol Pot's army in 1975.
"Prince Sihanouk called on the Cambodian people to go and join the communist Khmer Rouge in the jungle and that allowed the Khmer Rouge to build up their troops from 1970 to 1975," he said.
Without these events, Duch said: "I think the Khmer Rouge would have been demolished."
The tribunal, set up to prosecute those deemed most responsible for Khmer Rouge atrocities, can only pursue individuals for crimes committed in Cambodia between April 17, 1975 and January 6, 1979, when the regime fell to invading Vietnamese troops.
After Pol Pot's death in 1998, Kissinger defended the decision to bomb Cambodia as part of the Vietnam War and said it could not be linked with Pol Pot's killings later on.

Depopulation, also known as eugenics was proposed under the Nazis during World War II. It is the deliberate killing off and demoralizing large segments of living populations and was proposed for Third World countries under President Carter's administration by the National Security Council's Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy. We now know through scientifically reverse-engineering the eugenics movement, that active eugenics programs have now been "normalized" throughout the U.S. What is more chilling for Americans is the nature of population control as it is being used in Bedford County, Pennsylvania and throughout the U.S. for which the vast majority of Americans do not see due to Mind Control. See the Sex Cult Investigation Bedford County
National Security Memo 200, dated April 24, 1974, and titled "Implications of world wide population growth for U.S. security & overseas interests," says:
"Dr. Henry Kissinger proposed in his memorandum to the NSC that "depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World." He quoted reasons of national security, and because `(t)he U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries ... Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of U.S."
Depopulation policy became the top priority under the NSC agenda, Club of Rome and U.S. policymakers like Gen. Alexander Haig, Cyrus Vance, Ed Muskie and Kissinger. According to an NSC spokesman at the time, the United States shared the view of former World Bank President Robert McNamara that the "population crisis" is a greater threat to U.S. national security interests than nuclear annihilation.In 1975, Henry Kissinger established a policy-planning group in the U.S. State Department's Office of Population Affairs. The depopulation "GLOBAL 2000" document for President Jimmy Carter was prepared. Domestic population control requires a more crafted agenda, as this activity will not pass federal court scrutiny, that is, it is completely unconstitutional and must remain in state "courts of equity," outside of federal scrutiny.
It is no coincidence that CAPTA, drafted in 1974 for "child protection," would mutate into a domestic population control program under Republican domination. It now targets domestic "economic interests" as a national security issue.
But CAPTA comes down from the Bohemian Grove death cult and is just the tip of a massive federal iceberg of cold, hard deceit. Those targeted, such as poor minority families marked by any documentation placing them in the welfare system, are led to underground court systems that are never seen by most Americans. The standards of evidence, due process and probable cause are reduced to minimalistic levels and are virtually meaningless as few lawyers want to engage arguments in what the Supreme Court has called "kangaroo courts." These families are then targeted with a bewildering array of quasi-scientific inquisitions and fundamental civil rights abuses designed to separate parents from their children and build broad alienation between parents and children. This activity completely violates basic protections provided by the Constitution and restitution for these damages will be enormous. All federal funds going to these illegal programs must be reversed.
This is a White House whose sole purpose is to reduce the world's population by 2 billion people through war, famine, disease and any other means necessary. This apparatus, which includes various levels of the government is determining U.S. foreign policy. In every political hotspot -- El Salvador, the so-called arc of crisis in the Persian Gulf, Latin America, Southeast Asia and in Africa- the goal of U.S. foreign policy is population reduction. The targeting agency for the operation is the National Security Council's Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy. Its policy-planning group is in the U.S. State Department's Office of Population Affairs, established in 1975 by Henry Kissinger. This group drafted the Carter administration's Global 2000 document, which calls for global population reduction, and the same apparatus is conducting the civil war in El Salvador as a conscious depopulation project.
"There is a single theme behind all our work-we must reduce population levels," said Thomas Ferguson, the Latin American case officer for the State Department's Office of Population Affairs (OPA). "Either they [governments] do it our way, through nice clean methods or they will get the kind of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it "The professionals," said Ferguson, "aren't interested in lowering population for humanitarian reasons. That sounds nice. We look at resources and environmental constraints. We look at our strategic needs, and we say that this country must lower its population-or else we will have trouble.
So steps are taken. El Salvador is an example where our failure to lower population by simple means has created the basis for a national security crisis. The government of El Salvador failed to use our programs to lower their population. Now they get a civil war because of it.... There will be dislocation and food shortages. They still have too many people there."
Zeitgeist: Addendum---The true source of Terrorism and Slavery
It's no wonder that Republicans do not address welfare issues: their illegal programs of child trafficking of poor minorities en masse are working exceedingly well. We rarely even hear of these cases, though they number in the millions. Why fix something that is working so well for them?
It is no surprise that this policy was established under President Carter with help from Kissinger and Brzezinski - all with ties to David Rockefeller. Carter portrayed himself as a "conservative" and in 1974 CAPTA was allowed to begin "incrementally." The Bush family, the Harriman family - the Wall Street business partners of Bush in financing Hitler - and the Rockefeller family are the elite of the American eugenics movement. I am now aware of the Skull and Bones Society's eugenics agenda within this tightly guarded elitist group. The Skull and Bones "elite" absolutely believe in eugenics. Even Prince Philip of Britain, a member of the Bilderberg Group, is in favor of depopulation:
"If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels" (Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund, quoted in "Are You Ready for Our New Age Future?" Insiders Report, American Policy Center, December 1995).
As the tenth President of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz placed the poorest people of Africa at the forefront of his agenda. Why would one of the leading military hawks of the Iraq War now want to do "altruistic" service in Africa? The answer is eugenics, as a population control agenda is very high in this administration's concerns. Population control is as high on the national security agenda as terrorism.
Kingsley Davis, noted member of the American Eugenics Society, in Economic Development and Cultural Change says that an effective strategy in lowering the birth rate is to "lessen ... the identity of children with parents, or lessen... the likelihood that this identity will be satisfying," adding that certain trends that might bring population levels down are "very high divorce rates, homosexuality, pornography and free sexual unions..." Davis sees a positive note in "the child welfare services, which have increasingly tended to displace the father as a necessary member of the family, and the health services which have increasingly flouted parental authority with respect to sex education, contraception and abortion." This "flouting of parental authority" is a familiar theme in children and youth services, which repeatedly emphasize the child's independence from their parents and their ability to make decisions for themselves. Chid traffickers in America are first required to be brainwashed by HYPe and Tavistock elitist-manipulated "behavioral sciences," not the Constitution of the United States.
But where have all the elite gone? Communism anyone?
Many of the Republican elite who decide how we live in the real world are now residing in "resorts," "retreats" and "sanctuaries" along the the Emerald Coast of Florida and in many Republican communes throughout the U.S.. Karl Rove even lives as a communist. These locations of suave Kitsch architecture, neo-European, neo-New England and fully neo-con, have a basic price of admission of around one million dollars. Of course, ten million dollar "estates" are not unheard of. The homeless, driven from their homes through active eugenics programs, or homeless vets trying to deprogram themselves, rarely pass through these enclaves of totalitarian corporate mind control. But if they do, existing corporate policy requires the nearly invisible but omnipresent "security" to usurp their tents and blankets immediately. Here, these rudimentary implements of bare shelter are not "estates."
Nor will the multi-million dollar estates have anywhere to go in value but down. These towering bastions of hurricane-bait are sold as the latest and greatest in elitist communal living. This is a teen-aged, envy-based logic which can easily be transported elsewhere in the vast expanses of pine needles, sand bogs and insect larvi owned and controlled by a huge Republican pulp-making company, the St. Joe Company. As Jesus' daddy, St. Joe was a humble carpenter whose son advocated selling all that you own and giving it to the poor. That was then, this is now.
In Mind Control parlance, this is really a carrot for the ultimate conformist. This illusion must be generated by enormous amounts of pulp on which is written enormous amounts of pulp fiction about how bad people make good. Pulp fiction is certainly not a value that can be sustained anywhere in the real world, so this pulp company doesn't function in the real world. Not just anyone can build a pulp-fiction commune here or compete with the suave company store. Like Disney World, the elite have built-in "protections" against any real free markets or free thinking which might tempt the non-elite to build homes or raise children here. This is a completely "controlled" development. They have even convinced the powers that be that more wetlands need to be gouged out for a massive multi-billion-dollar airport/fully-controlled-exotic-redneck-commune, when the old airport is just fine. Poor people in the area are fully confined and living in very real chicken coops in very real, drug-infested "hoods" and neatly off the beaten path and have no mass-transit to these "resorts" even if they were "blessed" by an invitation to labor in the sub-terrainian bowels of these elitist sanctuaries. After thirty years of "trickle down," the affluent get an airport that isn't needed and poor people get screwed in shanty towns with no view. This is the power of totalitarian corporate mind control.
Welcome to the Tavistock psychologically engineered feudal fascist state of the future. These places are so thoroughly Mind Controlled, one must ask: Are these places keeping totalitarian Mind Control in or out? Their very existence raises this profound question.
But as true sanctuaries, the elite enjoy complete protection from the sex police, military recruiting operations and an absolute zero tolerance for any social consciousness. Social comment on the outside world is made taboo. These false villages go by the names of Rosemary Beach, Sandestin Resort, Alys Beach and Seaside, The Truman Show enclave already in "decline" as no longer the latest and greatest in pulp fiction. But to its credit, this "decline" and the departure of Republican elite is bringing some real and necessary changes.
As a paradise of the Republican elite, government taxes are low and are replaced by massive corporate membership fees and perfectly groomed grass. After all, life is really a golf course. These sanctuaries function as totalitarian corporate mind control at its finest. As a kind of Kuwait for wealthy rednecks, all working-class sub-classes are made invisible through strict corporate conformity, conduct codes and very high highway fences. But what is most important are the invisible fences we call total and complete mind control. These fences help to build the illusion that happy elitist communism actually works. Is this the true Tavistock utopia finally realized? These resorts evolved from 60s. 70s and 80s drug communes which circle the Caribbean exposing the same societal polarities between "legal" drug affluence and "illegal" drug demoralization. But are the two drug worlds actually linked by conspiracy?
Since many minority communities will not willingly vote their Constitution into oblivion, the CIA has invested heavily in flooding these communities with illegal drugs, while, simultaneously, proliferating legal drugs to the political conformists.
Not only does Hyper-Abuse Hysteria and "get tough" Republican child trafficking not occur here, according to Walton County, Florida officials, no child services sex "investigations" of parents exists here like they do in neighboring black or working-class communities. Does this concern the Femi-Nazi who is convinced that children are being raped everywhere there are penises? Apparently not elitist Republican penises. Where children have sex-related hysteria issues here, they are told that it is common and will pass and referred to the many child psychologists in high demand here. Health care, what a novel idea. Much of this exclusive paradise is financed by Big Oil, Big Pharma working with Big Banks and ultimately paid for by you and other Big Suckers paying hidden corporate taxes and having your children trafficked in the "non-resort" world.
These are excellent locations to study the American occultic traditions of total communal mind control, how they work and how they don't work. The Danish film crew I have been working with are here filming a documentary. In its long history, the Seaside Theatre has rarely featured any works of socially conscious playwrights. But with the departure of more ardent Republicans to the latest and greatest resorts, this is beginning to change. Traditional centers of pluralism and intellectual awareness such as libraries, colleges and news stands do not exist at the latest and greatest, thus serving as magnets for wealthy, comfortable and brain dead Republicans.
As expected in an elitist Republican utopia, we are not finding any local or resident artists of any merit. The many art galleries here feature only imported works and the local artists exhibit the most naive finger art or "found art" imaginable, of course, at exorbitant prices. The mind control is so total that perfectly intelligent adults willingly pay the price of a six pack for a single bottle of beer here, all the while discussing how they should be running our government. All crime is made invisible through a corporate anesthetizing and antiseptic process, which, of course, is the real crime. Common American child trafficking cannot be tolerated in its outside, real-world condition, and no police or Femi-Nazis are allowed. They have been replaced by the public relations professional whose real job is to keep our current Republican government comfortably numb and fully insulated from anything remotely real.
All crime has shifted fully to the subconscious level of consciousness where mind control is absolute where the elitist delusion of screwing poor people in order to save them is fully advanced. The "sanctuary" provides a complete intellectual anesthetizing experience. No deep thinking here. Patrons are comforted by an ubiquitous corporate "caring" policy, diverting anything remotely criminal or scandalous away from traditional government and toward the public relations professional and private "security."
As an added bonus, there is no war-logic here, except for the occasional homeless round ups in the nearby state "public" areas. Children are instructed on how to distinguish and flush-out these sexually perverse "intruders" who must surely be masturbating on the fringes of paradise. This multi-million dollar whitewashed version of Americana is a small price to pay for total mind control and the ignorant bliss which comes from luxury and complete separation from social consciousness. To escape the war-logic of "altruistic" programs, government negligence and child trafficking found everywhere else in American society, Republicans want you to think these communes are well worth the price of admission. Are these profit centers where Karl Rove's mind longingly wandered as he slavishly prepared "public policy?" We can only speculate.
Are Republicans planning to spread this communal joy to the rest of America? Not on your life. Apparently that would be socialism. Elitist communism would never allow for it.
We now know that broad domestic use of these "altruistic" programs go on through "child services" organizations in America. These completely unconstitutional programs are extensively addressed in this blog. Full revelation of these programs will be vigorously resisted by the political elite, as the truths in this website will destroy their eugenics agenda and the source of their power. Will your family survive?
