    I have just come across this article.

    Seeing as there seems to be an increasing number of Chinese members on this forum, I would be curious to discuss this article with them.

    What do you think about Tiananmen?

    Do you think that when Zhao dies, there might be similar revolts?

    What do you think about the nature of the Chinese regime?

    P.s. Considering this is an extremely sensitive issue, I call upon all those who participate in this thread to refrain from insulting other members and generally do all they can to keep the atmosphere cool.

    Not being Chinese, I can't exactly give an accurate prediction. However, Ihave been to China and found it to be the most beautiful country in the world, with *genuinely* the nicest people I have ever met.

    I make it one of my lifetime ambitions to be in China for when the Council falls.

    I'm hoping they won't be big revolts because china's developed so much since the cultural revolution.

    I admittedly don't approve of the chinese regime, I don't think restrictions on the media (national or foreign) are fair, and I dislike the restrictions on personal speech, people are scared to criticise the ruling party.

    Then again, it's impossible to instal democracy in china at the moment, due to the growing rift between the rich and poor.

    I think you can actually take some pride in that you failed such an exam. It goes to show that you are an open mind and that you are not receptive for indoctrination.
