Remembering the time twenty years ago when China reminded the world of who and what they are. Many people seem to have forgotten what happened in Tienanmen Square. I haven't.
I'm a huge sports fanatic, and I refused to watch a single second of last year's Olympic coverage from Beijing. Yes, it was a ridiculously minor sacrifice compared to those who put their lives and their personal freedom on the line to gamble for democracy. Many of them paid a very steep price indeed.
Today China is still as underhanded and overbearing as ever, but we don't seem to care if they continue selling us cheap (and toxic) goods and loan us money.
I won't forget what happened. The day they roll in voting machines instead of tanks, I'll think about forgiving them. But I won't forget.
