For the rest of the world and Chinese people outside China probably know about what happened. What do Chinese people who know about this massacre think about this ?

    It is a very complicated topic and should not be simplified to multiple choices.

    Government did what they did, it is horrible but necessary in their opinion.

    Do I think China would be a better country if they didn't do what they did? Probably not.

    Do I think China would be a better country if students could be more moderate and patient with pace of social political reform? I think so.

    But students are 100% right and heroic at what they did. And they will always be remembered (excluding many leaders who care less about the lives of fellow students but their own agenda)

    It is unfortunate, from both sides. It is tragic for Chinese no matter which side you are at. That's why many Chinese take offend when this is used against China as a country.

      China would absolutely be better if they had not cracked down. We would have had less focus on state owned enterprise and more private growth, which is where all the wealth came from. Also less corruption, and more open markets.

      On top of that Taiwan would probably be unified with China by now. The Taiwanese love democracy and the main thing keeping them away from China is the Communist dictatorship.

      It was a huge setback and under Xi the Communists are going back to their old ways.

      ^ If they had not been cracked down, China would have been no better than Iraq now.

      What Xi is doing is completely another story. I don’t like it either. But it doesn’t mean the leaders at 90s did wrong. It has already been the best outcome possible.

      That's just nonsense. China already had market reforms and never had the sectarian violence Iraq does.

      Instead China would be further along with market reforms and better integrated with Taiwan.

    Looks like the Chinese govt did a good job of brainwashing their citizens

      Do you really know what Chinese people are thinking? How do you assume so?

    People always tend to believe they are the ones who knows the truth. You know what media told you, both in and outside China.

      Never said I believed it or not. Told you the source. You clearly have your belief already, why let information collecting get in the way? Your government obviously wants everyone to have free and open access to all info, right?

      Exactly. You're able to research on your own now, right stpD71?

      There wouldn't be any sort of, let's say "firewall" in place to stop your independent research from being carried out, right?

      Surely this must just be false, right stpD71?

      The envoy wrote: "Students understood they were given one hour to leave square but after five minutes APCs attacked.

      "Students linked arms but were mown down including soldiers. APCs then ran over bodies time and time again to make 'pie' and remains collected by bulldozer. Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains.

      "Four wounded girl students begged for their lives but were bayoneted."

      They didn’t massacre any students. Maybe there were some students amongst the <1000 protestors that were killed in the streets but no one died at tiananmen.

    Non-Chinese people with such strong opinion on China’s destiny is very American attitude.

      The United States was entrusted to be the guarantor of world peace. So yeah, it is very American.

      It's only fighting wars for its own interest. World peace is just an excuse.

    I was in grad school during TS era. Some of my colleagues in my research group knew people involved in the protests. It was bloody.
