Df S asked:
Considering how big China is and how long its history is, there seems to be a rather small number of preserved buildings from its past. There are a good amount of buildings from the Ming and Qing dynasties in Beijing and such but there are hardly any well-preserved buildings from the Tang. Compared to Korea or Japan, both significantly smaller countries, they seems to have dozens and dozens of ancient architecture. Why is that? Did China not preserve the buildings as much as the Koreans and Japanese did because of the Cultural Revolution?

ps- i started out with 130 questions.. i’ve answered all except these.. because i have looked in my book and am unable to come up with a good, summarized answer. so cut me some slack.
Last week, a congressional committee passed a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide. There is no doubt that up to a million Armenians died during World War I, although historians still debate whether their deaths constitute deliberate genocide or are collateral casualties of war.
House Democrats brought the resolution to a vote despite entreaties from the White House to postpone it. For Congress, though, the resolution was less about rectifying history than grandstanding. House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Tom Lantos (D., Cal.) called a vote. It passed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) pooh-poohed the episode. This was not about Turkey, she explained, but rather “about the Ottoman Empire.” Unclear, though, is why congressional Democrats felt the urgent need to condemn an entity that hasn’t existed for 85 years.
Unfortunately, grandstanding has consequences. Turkey recalled its ambassador; and now the State Department finds itself now devoid of leverage to prevent a Turkish incursion into Iraq to fight Kurdish terrorists. Pelosi’s posturing has put U.S. use of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey to supply our forces both in Afghanistan and Iraq in jeopardy.
If only the Armenian Genocide resolution was an isolated event. It’s amateur hour in Congress. The efforts of Sen. Joseph Biden (D., Del.) to divide Iraq on ethnic and religious grounds threaten to spark civil war just as U.S. servicemen make inroads in preventing it. Biden’s motivation may be to garner media attention. He has succeeded. The problem, though, his statements get more airtime in Iran and Iraq, where revolutionary mullahs use his pronouncements to convince Iraqis that U.S. forces seek to destroy Iraq rather than rebuild it.

My Chinese professor posed this quesiton to us. The Cultural Revolution in China occured in the 60s and 70s. Along with that, many other countries in the world experienced sweeping changes in social climate and policy. The question was: Why were all these events related- what was happening in the world at the time? My best guess is it this supposed sequence of changes is a product of the Vietnam War. But honestly, I have no idea. Thoughts?
EXTRA MILE asked:
Since Chinese government censored sensitive issues, let us take the Cultural Revolution as an example, there would not be much official documents on the Cultural Revolution to be found.
Would you please share with me things that happened during the Revolution? It could be from your own experience or passed down from your parents. Thanks.
