The Kampuchean War, also known as the Second Cambodian War, and in Kampuchea as the Independence War was a conflict in Cambodia. The war was fought by Siam and Vietnam against Democratic Kampuchea. Siam and Vietnam were supported by Britain and Japan; Kampuchea was supported by Korea (formerly known as North Korea) and other communist allies.
Tension originated from the creation of Kampuchea in Vietnamese territory on April 17 2020. It was believed that North Korea had a part in the creation of Kampuchea which was later found true as a video surfaced of the creation of Kampuchea where the North Korean leader was spotted. The war officially began on 6 May 2020 due to Kampuchea expanding into Siamese territory and the creation of landmines in Siamese towns in Cambodia. Japan and Britain announced their support of Siam and Vietnam the same day and one day after the declaration respectively.
Prelude to War
On the 1 May 2020, the town of Pursat which lies in Siamese territory joined Kampuchea after refusing to join Siam since December 2019. The next day, Siam responded by creating the town of Chanthaburi where the old Khmer capital was located.
Siam confronted both Pursat and Kampuchea about their intentions and demanded they remove the town to avoid a conflict. Kampuchea refused to return the territory to Siam and land mines were placed around Siamese towns in Cambodia. This caused Siam and Vietnam to have justification for war against Kampuchea.
Between Siam and Pursat
Siam attempted to reach a deal with the town of Pursat during and after the Siamese-Vietnamese War, offering them all of Siamese Cambodia if they became an Autonomous State of Siam with their own government and foreign policy, this was refused after it was called not a fair deal by Pursat.
The Impaler contacted Kampuchea about a border agreement in May after Pursat was invited to Kampuchea. An agreement was agreed by The Impaler but refused by Fluxify as Pursat was considered Siamese territory. This led to disagreements between the two and the eventual beginning of the war.
Declaration of War
On 6 May 2020, Siam and Vietnam announced their war against Kampuchea, calling them a rebel nation. Soon after the declaration, majority of the Kampuchean land mines were disarmed and taken by Siamese soldiers.
Before the war, Stockholm told Siam and Vietnam to back down or it would erupt into a large scale conflict and they do not want to get involved. Siam responded to Stockholm telling them not support rebel nations if they weren't interested in getting involved.
On the 28th of June, with the breakup of the Japanese Home Islands into separate nations, Vietnam and Borneo joined the Imperial Japanese Empire bringing Imperial Japan into the war against Kampuchea.
At the beginning of the war, there was not many battles occuring. Siam claimed that Kampuchean players do not stay on long enough to see combat, meanwhile Kampuchea claimed Siam was inactive. Battles started to occur at the end of May where Siam commenced both the Skirmish of Phnom Penh and the Skirmish of Pursat with both sides claiming victory in the battles.
In June, battles started to occur every week such as Battle of Bangkok, Battle of Pursat, and Second Battle of Pursat with Siam and Vietnam gaining support from the Commonwealth and the Japanese Empire.
Indochinese Victory and Aftermath
After the unification of Siam and Vietnam to form Indochina, on July 5, a referendum was held in Kampuchea on whether or not Kampuchea should join Indochina, as a result, everyone unanimously voted “Yes”. On July 7, the Democratic Kampuchea ceased to exist and the Communist Party of Kampuchea announced its dissolution. The integration of all Kampuchean cities ended on July 8.
