    Default Moments that changed the world....

    Just been flicking through You Tube looking for something, and found this....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV-tk...related&search=

    This video clip must have been played 10m times round the world, How one man can stop an army of tanks in their tracks is alomst unbelieveable. Can you imagine trying to do it now, they would either just a) Run you over, or b) The Americans would kill you in freindly fire and claim they didnt see you!

    Can you imagine anyone in England standing up for what they believe is right like this guy in Tiananmen Square. No one would have the balls of the courage to do it would they(lots claim to, but when push came to shove i doubt ,any would). Move back 20 years ago though, and people would be queuing up for it..

    Anyone know what happend to the guy in the clip above, was he killed afterwards??

    I remember it well, obviously the tank driver had good human nature not to run the guy over.

    I remember the Berlin wall falling. I was at school and they stopped all lessons to tell us all.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    If you read Kate Adie's autobiography, "Kindness Of Strangers", she tells the story very well. It's an excellent read, too, especially the Gulf War bits, when she was stationed with the British troops in the desert.
