China's Downstream Neighbors

It's way too early for this to explode yet, but ...

China already has completed two dams across the river, with two more under construction and four others planned.


"China, they will work for their own country," said Khy Tanglim, a Cambodian cabinet minister who heads a team devoted to Mekong policy. "We are downstream, so we suffer all the negative consequences. If there is no more water for us, no more fish, no more vegetation, this is a big disaster."
This will be a big issue one when push comes to shove.
