Celebration

China Throws Commie Bash

With some good old goose-stepping, massive floats, and missile displays in Beijing, China celebrated 60 years since Mao Zedong announced the country's embrace of communism Thursday. Community Party officials looked on in Tiananmen Square as the central Beijing gathering place turned into a stage for the country to showcase its military discipline and national zeal. "Today a socialist China embracing modernization, embracing the world and embracing the future stands lofty and firm," China's president said.
