and a incite on the depth of being purged from history means to the chinese leadership
Zhao Ziyang (pronounced [tʂɑ̂ʊ t͡sɨ̀jɑ̌ŋ]; 17 October 1919 – 17 January 2005) was a high-ranking politician in the People's Republic of China (PRC). He was the third Premier of the People's Republic of China from 1980 to 1987, and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China from 1987 to 1989.
As a senior government official, Zhao was critical of Maoist policies and instrumental in implementing free-market reforms, first in Sichuan, subsequently nationwide.
He emerged on the national scene due to support from Deng Xiaoping after the Cultural Revolution. He also sought measures to streamline the bureaucracy and fight corruption, which was severely affecting the Party's legitimacy in the 1980s. Zhao Ziyang was also an advocate of the privatization of state-owned enterprises, the separation of the Party and the state, and general market economic reforms. Many of these views were shared by then-General Secretary Hu Yaobang.
His economic reform policies and sympathies to student demonstrators during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 placed him at odds with some members of the party leadership, namely Premier Li Peng. Zhao also began to lose favour with paramount leader Deng Xiaoping. In the aftermath of the events, Zhao was purged politically and effectively placed under house arrest for the next 15 years. He died in Beijing in 2005, but because of his political fall from grace he was not given the funeral rites generally accorded to senior Chinese officials.
he made them all rich , the members , the generals , China as a whole
at first they made him General Secretary ,then Tiananmen.. and he again did not agree with the party
so he was cast out and so he lives on in wiki and a few other places only , take his family out of the equation ( as china also has done ) and he's nothing , and to them , thats hell it's self ..
putin did what he needed to do to ensure his nations safety at a cost and level he could afford back when he did it
think about it ...
he knows his enemy ..
