Tiananmen Square - 1989 revisited - part 24

The 24th part in a PBS piece published in 2001 by Andrew J. Nathan and Perry Link:

June 4 (4 of 4)

No one knows for certain how many people died over the two days. The Chinese Red Cross initially reported 2,600, then quickly retracted that figure under intense pressure from the government. The official Chinese government figure is 241 dead, including soldiers, and 7,000 wounded.

Our bankers.

Gotta love those bipartisan policies emanating from Washington that have made America beholden to these guys.
