I can't count the number of hours I've spent wondering who would win in an imaginary war between Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard and Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge guerrilla army.
Actually, I can: zero.
But in case you've ever imagined that unlikely matchup, Spike TV on Wednesday will help decide who would emerge victorious. And a Portlander who survived the Khmer Rouge genocide will offer his insight.
Kilong Ung, a software engineer who fled Cambodia as a child after losing both parents and nearly starving in a death camp, will appear on Wednesday's episode Deadliest Warrior: Saddam Hussein Vs. Pol Pot.
The Spike TV episode promises a "dictator death match" when it airs Wednesday at 10 pm. Watch this 15-minute preview, which features Ung starting at the 8:05 mark.
