  • Tuesday marks 30-years since the Tiananmen Square killings in 1988- a standoff between pro-democracy protesters and the Chinese government over corruption.
    It ended violently when tanks and soldiers entered the square, killing many protesters. The final death toll is still disputed.
    The Chinese government has since tried to erase the event from history

    Al Jazeera’s Adrian Brown reports from Beijing.

    The Chinese government did a right thing, evidence shows that the student leader are supported by CIA in order to overthrow the government and bring "democracy" and "freedom" to Chinese like what US wants to do to Venezuela. Without that decision, massive development and achievement cannot be done by China.

    I was a witness too. The real two sided story is the roiters attacked and killed many PLA army soldiers  on June 3rd, then central government issued an order to the soilders that they are allowed to fire back on June 4th. I hate western media always report the one-sided story.
    The students didn't kill the soilders, and soilders didn't kill the students. Those roiters who killed many soilders on June 3rd, 1989 are anti-government haters. Remember, on June 3rd, soilders were not allowed to shoot and actually many of them didn't even have guns. That is why the soilders got a big casualty.   The name of  "Tiananmen square massacre" is very inaccurate. There is no massacres had ever happened. The students left Tiananmen square peacefully at the night of June 4th.   The army only fired back in the west part of Beijing on June 4th to those anti-government roiters after many soilders got killed on June 3rd . But the soilders did not shoot the students in the Tiananmen square. western media always depicts it like " Students demonstrated peacefully, and PLA just  massively shooting them" .  That is a brazen lie!  Although I only was a primary school kid at that time, but I saw it by my own eyes. I can never forget those dead bodies and burned military vichles.   Many dead bodies were from the PLA soilders.

    This is the history of the past 30 years. The Communist Party has good side also bad side. If the Communist Party is bad, other countries still do business with the Communist Party. Ordinary people don't have to worry about it.

    Just wondered. Why has there never been footage of young soldiers being killed & slaughtered? The western mainstream media will never show those clips.

    JF DING says:

    The Chinese Communist Party government is a very great government. They have withstood the pressure from the West to think purely with reason and will not be kidnapped by any political correctness. It is precisely because of such an extremely rational and even ruthless government that humanity has witnessed the rise of another superpower.

    CCP will crumble
