Who are we?
Advertisements [?]I want you to picture in your mind the scene of the one young man standing in front of a tank in in protest at a square in China. Thousands of people surround the man, an army follows the tank, the world is watching, and there he stands. The tank came to a halt. With it the course of a nation changed. A few days after this incident took place I read that the young protester had been interviewed and revealed that he never felt in danger. He said that it had been ingrained in him since childhood that no Chinese would purposefully harm his brother.

If that had been an American tank driven by a GI in an American city the protester would have been run over. Indeed in our Army there would have been volunteers to drive the tank. To this day we have Air Force Officers stationed in silos with their fingers on the triggers of total destruction who were chosen for their jobs very much because they would not hesitate to annihilate mankind.

This is who we are.

3. Really?
You think that if armor were deployed on American soil, that tankers would be volunteering to be the first to crush a peaceful citizen? And that an officer would have been eager to order the killing?

I know we're training our troops to do this overseas to threatening foreigners, but I think we're a long way from our own Tianenmen Square. I think.

I hope.

I have to hope.

Their opinions are sad, but they are permitted to have their opinions. Expressing them is not traitorous (note correct overblown epithet).

WTF? The protests were against the Chinese government for refusing to extend democratic reforms to people who were routinely arrested, imprisoned, maimed, and killed by Chinese soldiers working for the Chinese government. Hundreds of Chinese people were killed, maimed, or imprisoned and shot shortly after the pic taken taken.

Are these idiots unaware of the massive slave prisons run by the Chinese government for the express purpose of punishing political dissidents? The wholesale slaughter of "minor" racial groups? The ongoing persecution of the Falun Gong? The crushing demographic genocide of Tibetans?

Little is publicly known of the man's identity or that of the commander of the lead tank

It's DU - where "facts" are usually pulled from thin air.

And so much for the DU policy of not disparaging our troops.

Here's a question for DU.

What would you do to some farmer, or Wal-Mart employee who was out protesting the return of the Fairness doctrine, or a government order to round up hand guns? What if it was a Mormon who felt his religion was under attack? What if it was a Libertarian who's party had been kept off the ballot by the Democrats during the election?

Would you imprison them? Yes, you've said so many times before.

Would run them over? Yes, then blame the victim, you've done it before.

If I'm wrong tell me so; I'll be waiting.

You are correct expressing their opinions does not make them traitors ...... but they ARE traitors none the less.

Not only that, but it is believed he was executed a couple of weeks later. He did not change a thing, but he was indeed a brave soul.
