    I could see what it was right away. It is strange to see it from this view though.

    Oh yeah. It`s the dude who stood up to the tank in Tienamen. Too bad that incident did nothing.

    How many of you would be brave enough to stand in front of a tank like him ?

    One of these days we may find out whatever happened to him.

    He was an amazingly brave human being! I sure hope the Chinese Government didn`t torture him to death...

    The saddest thing is that the whole Tienanmen square deal is nearly unknown to the generation of Chinese that followed. They don`t talk about it, don`t teach that it happened. Not even to try and spin it.

    It`s like it never happened to them.

    @Profworm: History is written (or rewritten) to favor whoever is in power. Our American history classes tend to skip over the time we put Japanese American citizens in concentration (internment) camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    @killian: Most of those Germans were actual American Nazis or otherwise there was some reason to arrest them.
    The Japanese? They just hauled off the whole family, into high mountain deserts and held them there.
    The vast majority were loyal American citizens, they went peacefully out of love for their country.
    Canada wasn`t any better.

    @jclv I learned about Japanese internment in school, but I see what your trying to say. However, comparing the US to the Chinese in terms of whitewashing history is like comparing... Uh, insert absurd analogy here.

    We still make documentaries, websites and lifetime movies about our dirty laundry. They have state controlled TV and movie studios, and a censored internet.

    George Takei is currently making a documentary about Japanese internment, BTW. He was one of those interned as a child. Looking forward to it, if only because he`ll be the narrator.

    My school taught us about the internment. They taught how shaming and wrong it was too. Not sure where you get the sweep it under the rug idea but it didn`t happen where I`m from.

    Not just another angle, but an earlier moment as well.

    I would imagine the tanks kept rolling until the video and images most of us older heads remember seeing.
