Dont want to get involved in the debate over the incident and the politics of another country - but as a matter of clarity, Saigon is in Vietnam
- Pol Pot was in Cambodia
. It was the Vietnamese military that effected the removal
of the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia
in the Vietnam
Cambodia war. Pol Pot became leader (dictator in fact) of Cambodia two weeks before the fall of Saigon, Saigon fell on 30 April 1975, in May 1975 Cambodia (or Kampuchea as it was called then) started attacking Vietnamese provinces and they fought til 1979 when Pol Pot went into hiding.
