In most Remembrance Day threads I've read, the discussion centers mostly around the historical aspects. I'm sure the mods would jump in if members derailed it to the politics of war or certain government policies towards war. Whereas the Tiananmen thread, the OP already started to make a political statement (ie. "one day the truth will come out") and the thread would likely follow that line down towards government policies.
That's not a political statement. The incident was not well documented and that is a fact. There's nothing political about what he said. How about I go make another Tiananmen Square thread without that statement? Can mods guarantee not to lock it right off the bat?
