I don’t know if I need to add too much to this. It’s an image and a moment that should never be forgotten.

    The two absolute Maoist dictums that are rigorously held eternal beliefs of the CPC (Communist Party of China):

    * All political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

    * The Party will always command the gun. The gun will never command the Party.

    And the golden rule of history: Those with the weapons make the rules.

    June 4th is already on the path to becoming a footnote event in history and the PRC regime will make sure that the past will be properly interpreted for the present and future.
