Conboy takes a similar approach, drawing from interviews with ex-agency operatives, military attaches, and KPNLF veterans to show that despite the CIA's concerted efforts to support anti-communist resistance, it failed to mount a worthy challenge.
Six from the State of Cambodia (SOC)--on 30 April 1989 the PRK officially changed its name to SOC--and two each from FUNCINPEC, the KPNLF, and the PDK.
In June of that same year FUNCINPEC, the KPNLF, and the Khmer Rouge signed a treaty forming a single government in resistance against the Vietnamese-supported government in Phnom Penh.
The KPNLF has joined the Khmer Rouge in fervently denouncing a Vietnamese presence.
In September 1990, the four Cambodian factions agreed to establish the Supreme National Council (SNC), with six representatives from the State of Cambodia (SOC), run by the Cambodian People's Party (CPP), with Hun Sen as Prime Minister and Heng Samrin as President; and two representatives each from FUNCINPEC, the KPNLF, and the Khmer Rouge.
Five years after the establishment of the PRK, bases housing some 230,000 Cambodian civilians and several thousand resistance fighters controlled by the Khmer Rouge, KPNLF and FUNCINPEC (and at least one base for members of the movement known as FULRO [3]) stretched along the full length of the Thai--Cambodian border from the junction with Laos to the southernmost part of Thailand's Trat province.
But the KPNLF appears to be growing both militarily an d politically.' Son Sann had claimed that his KPNLF army 'now had 12,000 fully armed fighters, with an additional 8,000 trained but still without weapons', while the Sihanouk faction, FUNCINPEC, had fewer than 5,000 fighters.
The four Cambodian parties were SOC (State of Cambodia), FUNCINPEC (Front Uni National pour un Cambodge Independant, Neutre, Pacifique, et Cooperatif), KPNLF (Khmer People's National Liberation Front, which later evolved into the BLDP, or Buddhist Liberal Democratic Party), and PDK (Party of Democratic Kampuchea.
What is lacking is a discussion relating to how the situation in SOC-controlled areas differed from the situation in areas controlled by FUNCINPEC and the Khmer People's National Liberation Front (KPNLF) and how competition for votes in those areas affected the patterns of politically motivated violence.
This is compatible with the Paris Agreement signed on 23 October 1991 by four Cambodian factions - the State of Cambodia (SOC), Funcinpec, the KPNLF (Khmer People's National Liberation Front), and Democratic Kampuchea (the Khmer Rouge).
