U.S. lawmakers have sharply questioned Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about allegations that the State Department withheld information of corruption in Iraq, and steps by the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to deal with it. VOA’s Dan Robinson reports from Capitol Hill.

The appearance by Secretary of State Rice came after months of refusing to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee because of disagreements with the panel chairman, Democrat Henry Waxman.

Waxman and other Democrats assert the Bush administration tried to block congressional investigations by retroactively classifying a U.S. Embassy-Baghdad draft report critical of Iraqi anti-corruption measures, withholding other documents, and avoiding public testimony.

Mark Davis was among those to find his house reduced to ashes

Fire devastation

Thousands of evacuees have returned to parts of California devastated by wildfires – some finding their homes no more than smouldering heaps.Fire crews have been gradually bringing many of the blazes under control.

But more than a million people were evacuated and, for some, the threat to their homes has not yet passed.

After flying over the devastated area, US President George W Bush said the federal government would provide every help to victims of the fires.

Cambodian New Traffic Law

Personally, I hope that this new law will make life a bit safer, but this can be effective unless everyone has also “Soft-Law”, “Traffic Ethics” or “High Conscience”. Safety must begin at home….

A Philosophy of King Jayavarman VII

 

ទុក្ខរបស់ប្រជារាស្ត្រ គឺជាទុក្ខរបស់ព្រះមហាក្សត្រ។”

” The suffering of the people is the suffering of the king (leader).”

 

ទសពិធរាជធម៌​ Ten Virtues of Ethical Leader

1. ទាន​ Charity

2. សីល Morality

3. ចាគៈ Sacrifice

4. អាជ្ជៈ Honesty

5. មទ្ទវៈ Softness

6. ​តបៈ Austerity

7. អក្កោធនៈ Calmness

8. អវិហឹង្សា Peacefulness

9. អវិរោធនៈ Respect of the law

10. ខន្តី Patience

Jayavarman VII is one of the greatest and most productive kings of the Khmer (Cambodian) Empire of Angkor (reigning 1181–c. 1220). He expanded the empire to its greatest territorial extent and engaged in a building program that yielded numerous temples (including Angkor Thom), highways, rest houses, and hospitals.

He remains a potent symbol of national pride for present day Cambodians. As a Buddhist King in a now Buddhist country he is regarded with great respect. He built and repaired many ‘firehouses’ across the Empire, which are thought of as places for travellers to rest and many buildings which are now called hospitals in translation. This has contributed to a legend of the Buddharaja, the King-Buddha, who privileged compassion in ruling.
