Talk:The Tiananmen Papers

I have just posted my latest critique of the Tiananmen Papers, which in my view, are a forgery. See
http://publish.uwo.ca/~achan/ Cheers. Alfred L. Chan, PhD
The Chinese-language external links attached to this article should be reserved for the the Chinese-language version of the article. They are not informative to the average English reader, since they do not provide an English translation. In my opinion, they only serve to support the detractors of the papers and thereby compromise the article's NPOV-ness. A link to Prof. Chan's paper would be more appropriate, since the English reader can evaluate that for himself and evaluate the arguments for himself. But just listing "Time to End the Farce of 'Tiananmen Paper'" seems like propaganda.
I'll wait a few days before I delete those links. Adam 17:10, 15 September 2005 (UTC)
Too smart to be forged
Forgers mostly don't understand their subjects very well and create documents full of banalities or improbably events. Whereas the documents I've seen include high-level political discussion that shows an understanding of the actual issues China faced.
Maybe particular items were forged, dates altered or topics left out. But I think we are getting a genuine insight into the inner thinking of the Chinese leadership as it was at the time.
