    Thai-Cambodian clashes damage UN World Heritage site

    Cambodia says a disputed 11th Century temple - a UN World Heritage site - has been damaged during continued cross-border clashes with Thai troops.

    Part of Preah Vihear temple collapsed after a Thai bombardment, officials said. Thailand has not commented.

    Interesting that a nimrod head case like Jello Biafra can even be right on occasion. This should be the anthem against college libtards.

    Doesn't Thailand have enough issues with Muslims in the south than to start this up again? An international court ruled it to be Cambodian territory. I know there where some areas the French forced Thailand to cede to it in Indochina, though I am not sure that this part of the border area is one of them...

    Whatever happened to the committment among ASEAN states to not settle border disputes by military means? The Philippines has a MUCH stronger claim to a pretty large chunk of Malaysia but they don't resort to military means to stake their claim... Just a bunch of Thai generals getting bored, me thinks...
