just had that anniversary. that enough was observed in china with silence. even those who commemorated it in their homes were persecuted for that. 1989 in retrospect looks different in china than europe. i would ask you to bear this in mind as we talk about the wall today. we, of course, all know that the cold war in europe ended peacefully but the people at the time did not know this. as events unfolded the images on the minds of protesters and demonstrators were images from tiananmen square, the lone figure standing in front of a row of tanks. try to keep that image in mind as we talk about 1989. the fall of the berlin wall was not a foregone conclusion. catastrophe loomed around every corner and certainly bloodshed was on the mind of the people who were there on the ground. tiananmen square is still a forbidden zone in the people's republic of china. fortunately we have the opportunity to examine what happened in europe. so the question, of course, is what would happen in eastern europe as gorbachev's reforms gradually created new opportunities. would there be a similar kind of viol

-- we looked at the opening to china as opening a new period of geopolitical relations, because not only did it open a second front for the soviet union, and not only did it threaten the unity of the communist bloc -- first of all, we thought that it explained to the american public that we had a notion of world order and that this was not just -- we were not just engaged in defending a corner of southeast asia, but that we had a vision of how countries could relate to each other. secondly, we thought that if we played it well, we could achieve a position in which we would be closer to each of the communist contestants than they were to each other. and so we -- so this was our geopolitical model, and we carried this out by correctly informing each side what we were doing with the other. so then, as time went on, the outline of a new international system began to emerge. but the hole in all this geopolitical thinking has always been the position of europe. can europe translate, or could europe translate, its potential economic strength, and its conceivable unity, into being an elemen

soviet union and china. and that's still the open question. and so i -- if you read the speech that nixon made at that time, we thought of these countries as units in an international global system. and then we were just beginning the process. we weren't going to be able to complete it. and that's not retroactive. you can read that. >> that was in nixon's article in foreign affairs previewing that. why don't we take some questions, raise your hand, wait for the microphone and keep it as concise as you can. hari harihan? >> so from then to now, we now have sanctions as a new weapon. i just want to know, what do you think about the efficacy of sanctions in terms of what it does to the target and the spillovers that it creates for the rest of the world? >> let me separate it into two parts, into sanctions against individuals and economic sanctions. i am very uneasy about this concept of sanctions against individuals because always the first question that you have to ask as a policy maker is what are you trying to accomplish? and secondly, what's the conclusion of it? so i've been tryin
