Have you ever seen the aerial photo where the rest of the plaza is blocked off and empty except for the 150 or so folks they brought in to celebrate on camera?
Still, it had the desired effect.

If we are only talking about events that happened in my lifetime...
This was incredibly inspiring to me at the time, watching it on the news. Little did we know....
I dont know how a super power going into a 3rd world country and pulling down a statue is inspiring... thats like the big bully beating up the little kid in school, if you want inspiration, the NVA and vietcong triumph over america is inspiring.

I see Pacific Victory's post as an indictment against the American media. We were told that this was important, it was not. He was being sarcastic.
