‘The streets surrounding the square had been controlled by the pro-democracy forces earlier in the evening. But now, they had been taken over by the pro-government forces who quickly began dropping Molotov cocktails down from the rooftops as well as firing down into the crowd. At that moment, the pro-government forces broke through a lightly-defended side wall of the square, causing thousands of pro-democracy protestors to rush to defend their rear and plug the breach. Again, the world held its collective breath as it appeared the pro-democracy movement that seemed destined for victory only hours before, was suddenly only minutes away from being extinguished. It was at that moment, their Alamo, their Tiananmen Square, that the major American networks slowly reminded the American people of whose side they’re actually on. One expert after another was paraded on to counter the obvious support that even the news anchors were proclaiming for the pro-democracy protestors. ‘Wait,’ they stopped everyone, ‘that’s the enemy.’ What? How could the pro-democracy forces be the enemy? How could we be on the side of the dictator? With that, even semi-informed Americans understood.’
