In the August 5, 2006, obituary section of the Economist, Ung Choeun (better known by his moniker Ta Mok, meaning "respected grandfather"), the last remaining leader of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge (KR) leaders was covered. (Under the communist Cambodian regime, 1.7 million of a population of 7 million were killed through executions or other aggravated circumstances.) After the 1979 fall of the KR government, Pol Pot's more philistine and hardline comrade-in-arms took control of the Marxist movement yet continued to keep the philosopher-first citizen in his protective custody until his death. When Pol Pot died, Ta Mok eulogized him, saying that he had dropped "like a ripe papaya" and was now no more than "cow sh*t." He added that Pol Pot was less than that because manure is useful. How will Raul praise Fidel?
