...when they see other unelected governments such as Libya firing at peaceful protesters? Do they condemn it? Do they feel it is justifiable? Do they feel shame for the Tiananmen Square massacre? Did they ever apologize for that by the way? I wonder how their state owned news channels cover these stories... Maybe a moot point for now, but what if the Chinese people started protesting again? If they see wave after wave of democracies developing in the Middle East and North Africa maybe they'll start protesting again. And then how would the the Chinese state react?
