Tank Man, the Bigger Picture

Twinkie, Interrupted

I know I’ve missed the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square rebellion by two days now, but I only just now stumbled upon this picture.

Hopefully everyone is familiar with the iconic “Tank Man” photograph, but this is the first time I’ve seen this version, that shows a wider angle and emphasizes the scale of the crackdown.

Tank Man, the Bigger Picture

I know many people are optimistic that he got away, that if he truly had been arrested and/or executed, the government would have announced it proudly and loudly to make an example of him.

I admit I cannot give that benefit of the doubt to the Chinese government, not then and not now. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.
