Remembering Tiananmen Square

Posted by: ST on June 4, 2007 at 9:52 pm

Gateway Pundit has an outstanding write-up/look back at the massacre at Tiananmen Square, which happened 18 years ago today.

McQ sums things up:

China seems to have come a long way in these 18 years, but you should remember that just below that veneer of freedom and progress they like to show the rest of the world lurks the same monster which crushed those seeking freedom on that heady June day in 1989. Until the communists fall from power, real freedom and liberty will always be an illusion. Take a moment today and remember those who died for it that day.

    Eventually like the people of East Germany, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, the Chinese people will vote and win over the tanks.

    I have a friend from China…the only way she wants to go back is for visiting. She tells me that there is a lot of corruption over there, but I already knew that.

    I think of China as an evil empire… >:)

    Thanks for the reminder, ST. And while I don’t defend the Chinese current system any more than I would Marxist Leninist ideology, let’s face it–the Chinese are about as Communist as Mussolini’s Italy was.

    It’s a corporate state. They have a stock market that causes global tremors because of its speculative bubble. They’re building new cities; they’re making the trains run on time; and their expanding into the former soviet republics along the old Silk Road in Central Asia–and they’re doing it without firing a shot.
