Tiananmen Square
It is hard to overstate the importance of Tiananmen Square as the preeminent Chinese landmark.  It is the symbolic "center" of China where everyone from Mao Zedong to Wuerkaixi have taken a stand in the name of China.  Today, it is far less political.  Throngs of tourists visit the square while locals come to fly kites and play with their kids.

""Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."




"I want to thank the astronauts who are with us, the courageous spacial entrepreneurs who set such a wonderful example for the young of our country."




"Had we to do it over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success, being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day."
