This month sees the first ever visit by a US president to Cambodia. Should President Obama apologise for the bombing of Cambodia 40 years ago?
Between 1970 and 1973 the United States dropped an astonishing 2.7 million tons of bombs on Cambodia. This was terrorism on a vast scale that destabilised the country and led, I believe, to the rise of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Is this crime too large for an apology?
