People, this is a special zone. Is the work of PDR officials. Remember this place has few gold mines. Who ever become governor in this county will be rich because the Foreigners. There is no anti-government group. The Hmong always be the bad people in this country. PDR intelligence know very well that is the local government is the problem not the Hmong.

I personally don't believe this is anti - Goverment group came and killed them, khon phai nai. But just want to blame somebody else. LPDR will never tell the truth ever since just like sombath's case. I'm blame the western country still handed LPDR a cash & Aid for them to survived day by day, year by year.

Khon Lao from Anywhere :

Why should they fought each other? As an ordinary Laotian, I cannot see any profit except loss.

No disrespect :

Not a fan of one party system, but not going to support a group called Chao Fah either. Chao Fah, refers to a Kings and Prince, but I'm sure the group everyone knows that. One thing I'm sick of hearing is how Gen Vang Pao fought for the Americans. Honestly the man fought for the side with the bigger pay check. He didn't fight for royal family, he fought for his selfish title. If the Americans would of won the Vietnam war, I'm sure they promise him a little of land. So pls stop calling your group Chao Fah, because I'm sure no one in that group has Chao Fah Ngums blood in them. Now about Laos, no one outside Laos can save the people or the country, if they people themselves don't stand up as one and fight for their rights and freedom. Groups of delusional folks overseas can't change a thing. Watch Netflix House of Cards and you'll understand that's how politic works.

The Watcher from Dark Side of the Moon :

I am the Great Watcher and have been a witness to this planet before the solar system was nothing but floating dusts. I have this to say - Unless Laos and their Buffalao reformed, her people and the land will continue to suffer until it becomes a wasteland. The BuffaLao people must wake up from being accustomed to being livestock used to tilt the land. The water is drying up, and famine will follow. The Buffalao will be slaughtered and beef being sold to others.

It is coming. You are warned.

Mr. Tun Aung from Maarssen, The Netherlands :

Why they (laos government and Fa group) can not talk on table for peace.

pao Xiong from Mouang Xaisomeboon :

Lao PDR military troop have surround kill the Hmong resistance ( Chao fa Freedom Fighter) since 1975 to now the Vietnam battalion 335 was headquarter in Mouangcha since 1977 to fight and kill the Chao Fa same as animals hunt until 1990. Lao xaisomboon province will not be ended the war. The Hmong Chao Fa now is the Civilian parts of the Hmong trained by the CIA who fought side by side with the U.S. operation in the Xieng Khouang province. 35 hmong soldiers have died during the Vietnam war in Laos instead of U.S. military.

Zendi :

The problem with Laos is that we as the Lao people has always been internally and externally been used as a war zone from all side of our borders and groups of ethnic. This is true that it made it much harder and more complicated then what it is since there are ethnic division inside Laos and outside. This also pile up on the American CIA groups as well since they stick their nose into the problems since the Vietnam war. There will never be peace as along as the U.S are present along with their CIA creating the mess. The Hmong where never apart of the Laotian mainstream society nor did they ever wanted to simulate into our society to rebuild Laos and our society.

First of all… If you're going to spit false facts, please at least have some knowledge of Lao's history before voicing your opinions here.
Let me brief you a little bit of YOUR history for you to understand. Not so long ago...your people, “lao society)” never respectfully call us HMONG nor do you even acknowledge us as citizen of LAOS. You pretty MUCH excluded HMONG from the "society" you proclaimed HMONG as not part of it.
NOW....listen to gets even better. Even though the Lao excluded Hmong from the lao society…during one of the greatest wars in Laos history, WE stood firmly with the Royal Lao King and fought the invading north vietnamese army, holding the country from falling into the hands of communism, while your so call, Lao people fled and SOLD the country to the vietcongs.
So before you spit any more trash about the people (HMONG) whom you excluded from your "lao society", I'd suggest you pay some respect for those HMONG-LAO who had sacrificed their lives so that YOU can live to "BAD MOUTH" about their people. If anyone is to be considered a Lao, HMONG are more LAO than LAO themselves!! Even today, HMONG are still fighting to keep the country from falling into the hands of CHINA and VIETNAM. I guess, the LAO doesn’t deserve to have a country to govern as a free country.
Fast forward…after 40 years of “PEACE”…what have the Laos’ leaders accomplished for the country? All I see is that from the north, Laos is occupied by the Chinese….to the EAST, LAOS is occupied by the Vietnamese. And sadly, in the heart of Vientiane, you see CHINESE building long terms takeover of the city and government sectors. It’s so DEPRESSING!
And last but not least…HMONG are NOT your enemy as you think; we are in fact, the PROTECTOR of LAOS and will be as long as we can. SADLY, Lao people think we are still the enemy when the Chinese and Vietnamese are taking over Laos once step at a time.

Peyton from Madison :

If you Lao communist stop mistreating us Hmong, we are more than happy to simulate into Lao society. Here is a good example, Hmong in America simulate will in the USA because the USA treat Hmong very good same in France, Australasia, Canada, Thailand, etc.

Anonymous Reader from Brooklyn Center :

Believe me or not, there will never be peace in Laos as long as the governments still haunt the former secret army, Chao Fa.

Grumo from VTE :

Chao Fa? They are like those Japanese soldiers in some forgotten islands that they had no idea the war was long over.

. :

That's the worst comparison I have heard to the idiot above me

The chao fa scenario is nowhere near that japanese scenario you listed...The chao fa are a bunch of hmong guerillas who are constantly being targeted by the government. The government is targeting the chao fa and their hmong people regardless if the war passed or not. The hmong people would love to forget the war and move on but the government won't and therefore no peace will ever be negotiated between the laos goverment and hmong people
