    "Lord Prime Minister and Supreme Military Commander"




    You thought it'd be the other one, didn't you?

    Media outlets in Cambodia have been told they must begin referring to PM Hun Sen as "Lord Prime Minister and Supreme Military Commander".
    In a three-hour briefing at the information ministry, reporters were told full titles must be used on first reference from August for the PM, the first lady and other officials.
    They were also asked why they had not complied with earlier similar requests.
    Failure to comply could lead to action, but it was unclear what this would be.
    Hun Sen's honorary, six-word title in Khmer, "Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen", would have to be used in the opening lines of print articles, radio and TV stories about the leader.
    The first lady Bun Rany Hun Sen's title would roughly translate to "Celebrated Senior Scholar Bun Rany Hun Sen", the Associated Press news agency reports.

    In English

    "Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith[17][2]

    For the Grammar School Boys:

    In Latin:

    Elizabeth II, Dei Gratia Britanniarum Regnorumque Suorum Ceterorum Regina, Consortionis Populorum Princeps, Fidei Defensor"

    UK Military Titles:

    Plus hundreds of others.


    It seems the Cambodian is somewhat modest in comparison.

    ^ She's a queen, not a criminal junta leader or a criminal gangster.

    If you have any doubt about the SE Asian's liking for title's then you need look no further than this: กรุงเทพมหานคร อมรรัตนโกสินทร์ มหินทรายุธยา มหาดิลกภพ นพรัตนราชธานีบูรีรมย์ อุดมราชนิเวศน์มหาสถาน อมรพิมานอวตารสถิต สักกะทัตติยวิษณุกรรมประสิทธิ์

    Are you sure about this?
    Could be highly debated.

    I don't disagree.

    Yes, us and the Yanks do a fine line in despot training. Here's one with a nice lengthy title:

    Foreign Policy examines America’s role as a training ground for those who would plot coups around the world. For example, Yahya Jammeh, current president of the Gambia, reportedly attended a military police training course in the U.S. prior to his 1994 bloodless coup:
    Jammeh promised that his would be a “coup with a difference” and that he would stand down “as soon as we have set things right.” Eighteen years later, he is still in power.
    In addition to brutal crackdowns on the opposition and the press, Jammeh has become known for his eccentricities, including promoting a banana-and-herb cure for AIDS and rounding up those suspected of sorcery. After he was re-elected in 2011 to a fourth term in a widely criticized election, His Excellency the President Sheik Professor Alhaji Doctor Yahya Jammeh, as he calls himself, told his critics they could “go to hell” and vowed to rule for a billion years.

    That's not a title for a position of a person, that's the full name of Bangkok.

    Is this the same guy the US has just convicted the guys that recently tried to overthrow him? (Forgive my poor grammar...you know what I mean).
