Anonymous Reader from New York :

I've recently returned from China and was shocked by the speed of there development. Their government is a steam roller destroying its' past and the weakest of its' many citizens. This should be a warning to the government of Laos. If they don't act for the best interests of their people people and can't possibly know how all this development will affect their own future, will they treat the country and people of Laos better or worse than themselves. Also, money is spent and gone land is forever.

Thank goodness the Lao civilians are beginning to stand up to the corrupted government. Laos will begin to prosper once there are transparencies within the political system. Until then, only the corrupt will make $$$ by selling people's land and properties.

The Lao police and soldiers should join the civilians and help bring down the corrupt officials who are sell the land. Only those corrupted officials will make the money while the innocent civilians become homeless and landless. It's time to stand up to Chinese invasion and bring down the corrupt Lao government.

People Rights from Vientiane :

If you’re a Lao citizen you must stand up for your right and don’t let this idiot people take or sell you property which make them richer and you get nothing. Tell those Chinese to go home and build their own airport in their back yard, not here in Lao. If those polices or soldiers came and using AK-47 to force you out, you must have you RPG and stand ready to defend you property.

Huk Lao people from Sky over Laos :

Lao Issara PDR government, they are supposed to help protecting their citizen but they will make up something up by negotiation or even will bring more AK 47 and threat them. That is clearly inhuman to force people to give up their belonging and property. The local people there mainly are farmers and realize on the self-sufficient farming for generations and they don't want to auction their lands. Lao Issara government, you must stop all your unjust, inhuman action against your own people. That is very truly wrong.

We need more brave Lao citizens to stand up to high official corruptions and foreigners. The Chinese are invading Laos faster than the speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive. I don't know who will own Laos first, the Chinese or the Vietnamese. Either one, the corrupted Lao officials will not hesitate to sell out their country for large mansions and Mercedes.
