Rare, shocking image of the Tiananmen Massacre aftermath.

 
Funny thing I learned (that is literally never taught in Western schools) is that the students were communists protesting against capitalist reforms. I was always taught that they were educated students protesting against the Communist Party, and the details were never made clear.


I really want to believe you, can you shoot me a source. Everywhere I go is just calling the 89 movement "pro-democracy" which could mean anything, even Wikipedia.

This is something epically great: the article of the Ottoman newspaper from 1878, describing the results of Russo-Turkish war:

 

=== === ===

 

There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His prophet. The God's Shadow mercifully granted peace to Russians. As faithful knows, the accursed icon-worshipers rebelled, refused to pay tribute, took up arms and, armed with the devil's tricks of modern times, opposed the ruler of the faithful. Praise be to God. Truth triumphed. Our merciful and victorious sovereign, this time alone, came out of the struggle as the winner of the infidel dogs. In his incredible goodness and mercy, he agreed to give peace the humiliated dirty dogs asked for. Since now, the Universe will again be governed from Istanbul.

 
The brother of the Russian ruler must come with a great retinue to Istanbul and, lying in the ashes on the eyes of the whole world, ask for forgiveness and bring remorse. In this case, the usual tribute must be paid, after which the ruler of the faithful, in his inexhaustible mercy, will once again reinstall the Russian ruler in his position as the vassal governor of his country.

 

But in order to prevent the possibility of new indignation and resistance, the Sultan, as the supreme ruler of the Earth, ordered that 50,000 Russians will remain hostages in Bulgaria. The rest of infidel dogs can return back to their homeland, but only after they pass in the deepest reverence through Istanbul or its outskirts.

 

=== === ===

 

The year 1878, humiliated infidel dogs with their "devil's tricks of modern times" in the outskirts of Istanbul:

Two years ago - already history or stiil not? Anyway, one of my favorite clips: official concert for North Korean elite, dedicated to the success of nuclear program. The great music, the interesting background...
