    Default Surprisingly balanced documentary on the Long March.

    Out of the ashes of the massacres of 1927 throughout China, but particularly in Shanghai where women in the working districts were strung up in public and had their breasts amputated before being left to bled to death by the forces of the crime gangs, colonial powers and the right the Red Army exhausted and on the verge of annihilation under the leadership of comrade Mao Zedong took upon itself an amazing feat of endurance that in the end to that glorious day, the 1 st October 1949 when the People's Republic of China was declared officially with the victory of People's Liberation Army over the Kuomintang, the Japanese Imperialist, the crime lords and all other enemies. It remains a glorious inspiration to working and oppressed people everywhere and a reminder that the great only appear so because we are on our knees....Let us arise!

    Yes lets emulate the greatest mass murderer in history. It is quite shocking that are clowns out there who post this kind of drivel. Mao should have faced a war crimes and genocide tribunal.

    The Tibetans would be interested in your thesis that the PRC is an inspiration to "oppressed peoples".....

    The liberation of the Chinese province of Tibet which had long been under the control of "God-Kings" up to all sorts of "Trantric" strangeness with young girls (and I mean childern) where the vast majiority of the population was treated horribly was one of the glories of the "Mao era".

    I believe that they had the death penalty before for homosexuality in Tibet which was abolished after the People's Liberation Army ousted the Lamas. So you shouldnt complain about that to much.

    Interesting non-Communist book on the realities of Tibetan "Buddhism" (which actually doesnt have much connection with the teachings of the Buddha himself).

    The Shadow of the Dalai Lama – Contents

    That doesn't justify China's genocide of 2 million Tibetans since 1949 and the colonisation of the country by Han Chinese settlers. Also, the question of whether it was part of China in 1949 is not settled, as the UN General Assembly ruled some decades ago that Tibet was an independent country before then.

    Haven't seen that shot before. It bears a weird resemblance to one of the pictures from the Mai Li massacre -



    I had to look twice to make sure it wasn't simply another shot of the same scene.
