Kampuchean People's Revolutionary Armed Forces

The KPRAF were renamed the Cambodian People's Armed Forces (CPAF) in 1989, preserving their main structure, but changing insignias and symbols. In 1993 the CPAF were absorbed into the newly re-established Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.

Famous quotes containing the words forces, armed and/or people:

    There exists, at the bottom of all abasement and misfortune, a last extreme which rebels and joins battle with the forces of law and respectability in a desperate struggle, waged partly by cunning and partly by violence, at once sick and ferocious, in which it attacks the prevailing social order with the pin-pricks of vice and the hammer-blows of crime.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    A woman’s beauty is a storm-tossed banner;
    Under it wisdom stands, and I alone
    Of all Arabia’s lovers I alone
    Nor dazzled by the embroidery, nor lost
    In the confusion of its night-dark folds,
    Can hear the armed man speak.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The ground for taking ignorance to be restrictive of freedom is that it causes people to make choices which they would not have made if they had seen what the realization of their choices involved.
