Preah Vihear Temple dispute

The fight between Thailand and Cambodia over the Preah Vihear Temple complex I always imagined was over a temple in the middle of rice paddies. Not so. Look at what an important (and defensible) position it is here and here.

As a defensive position I am reminded of how Iraqi's would hold up in mosques as US couldn't bomb them.
