unrest. At the least, this increases obstacles to the reform or even causes setbacks, leading to serious consequences.

Zhao Ziyang said: A country can only be run according to its own situation. We will neither export our own system to other countries nor copy the system of any other country. Some people in the American media probably like to depict themselves as being close to those Chinese who are advocating importation of a political system from the West, including the United States, in an attempt to influence the U.S. Government's current and future Chinese policy. However, the real motivating force pushing China's reform is the Chinese Government and people, who are acting in line with China's characteristics. Therefore, the fact that some people in American society support those who are not satisfied with the Chinese Government will be detrimental not only to China's political stability and the progress of its reform, but also to Sino-U.S. friendship.

Shortly after the emergence of "Chen Yun's Eight Opinions" directed against Zhao Ziyang, Bo Yibo wrote a letter to Deng Xiaoping launching a second attack. Recently, a group of intellectuals submitted a joint letter to the authorities urging the release of political prisoners like Wei Jingsheng and others. This gave the old-man party an excuse for overthrowing Zhao. This reminds people of the success of the old men two years ago in ousting Hu Yaobang from office by using the opportunity of student unrest and opposing "liberalization."

The year 1989 should be a peaceful year in the world, but it absolutely will not be a peaceful year inside the CPC.

According to news from Zhongnanhai, a group of political old men are launching a "spring attack" on Zhao Ziyang.
