Seems like a dude who wasn’t really even communist who just killed a shit ton of people to me. Especially because he lived with the Cambodian royal family for a bit with his relatives.
The US backed him and portrayed Vietnam as imperialists for fighting against him, so that should really tell you most (though not all) about what you need to know.
