REMEMBER

Because those in the PRC will hardly be allowed to.

And reports are the young people there have no knowledge of this…

prcTwenty-five years ago, the Chinese government massacred hundreds of its own citizens in Tiananmen Square. It admits no wrongdoing. It hopes the world will forget, and look the other way as it continues to abuse the fundamental rights of Chinese citizens. (Human Rights Watch)

The way things are proceeding here, we probably won’t be remembering things here, either…

  2. Thanks for the Bonus Army link. I had never heard of it.
    That reads like a who’s who of military legends that in light of this action, should have been hung from lamp posts.

    After the cavalry charged, the infantry, with fixed bayonets and tear gas (adamsite, an arsenical vomiting agent) entered the camps, evicting veterans, families, and camp followers. The veterans fled across the Anacostia River to their largest camp and President Hoover ordered the assault stopped. However Gen. MacArthur, feeling the Bonus March was an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, ignored the President and ordered a new attack. Fifty-five veterans were injured and 135 arrested.[12] A veteran’s wife miscarried. When 12-week-old Bernard Myers died in the hospital after being caught in the tear gas attack, a government investigation reported he died of enteritis, while a hospital spokesman said the tear gas “didn’t do it any good.”

    Go Army!!

    • You are welcome!
      First I heard of them was from a JPFO comic book (aimed at educating our youth about gov’t abuses, because the public schools weren’t!)
      “That reads like a who’s who of military legends that in light of this action, should have been hung from lamp posts.”
      Most of the veterans I know agree with your sentiment.

  3. +11 KM’s statement. The gov’t has a long tradition of disregarding those it finds, er, inconvenient.
