    Then call them up and ask for a retraction, instead of mixing it up here with all your lonely virgin threads.

    The report doesn't call it a massacre, and doesn't state or even infer the man was run over by the tank - so nothing to retract.

    It was rhetorical. I'm telling DwarfPaladin to ask for a retraction if he is so firm in his belief in journalistic integrity vis-a-vis the PRC. There won't be one, because as you state - he's spouting rubbish.

    So basically your whole argument falls. Why don't you apologise instead of posting the equivalent of 'whatever'?

    Yes I do. Your response was childish - like a toddler, or perhaps a teenager caught in a lie.

    Or perhaps you think it is 'clever' to make claims in a post then completely fail to back them up? Sounds like an attempt to manipulate people's views? (And that is ironic, isn't it?)

    Looks like you missed my point about irony?

    You have NOT made the point. Everyone knows that the guy wasn't run over and the report doesn't suggest that. Yet you try to claim that this was done by the 'biased BBC'. When challenged on this, you retreated to 'they called it the Tienanmen Square massacre' - but they didn't in either case.

    You have a very strange view of how to argue a case.

    Because he is a Chinese Nationalist.

    Therefore, as a nationalist, it is his patriotic duty to defend the motherland from insult and take credit for the work of other Chinese people past, present and future

    I pity those who believe religiously in anything. But that's not my point. You deliberately put forward a false argument, knowing it to be false, all in the case of propaganda.

    okay just read this fully. The video only showed part of the news and not what it entirely said.

    It did not showed the full footage of the tank man but you can find BBC's full stance on here

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/h...nts/html/9.stm

    This was the brutal crushing of pro-democracy demonstrations in 1989, when troops and police killed several hundred unarmed people around Beijing's most famous square.



    with the same picture beside.

    The chinese nationalist is currently residing in Taiwan.

    and they have absolutely nothing to do and even joined in to condemn the incident.
