"Nicolae Andru?? Ceau?escu was the Secretary General of the Romanian Workers' Party, later the Romanian Communist Party from 1965 until 1989, President of the Council of State from 1967 and President of Romania from 1974 until 1989. His rule was marked in the first decade by an open policy towards Western Europe and the United States of America, which deviated from that of the other Warsaw Pact states during the Cold War. He continued a trend first established by his predecessor, Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej, who had tactfully coaxed the Khrushchev regime to withdraw troops from Romania in 1958. Ceau?escu's second decade was characterized by an increasingly erratic personality cult, extreme nationalism and a deterioration in foreign relations with Western powers and also with the Soviet Union. Ceau?escu's government was overthrown in a military coup December 1989, and he was shot following a televised two-hour kangaroo court."
he also modeled his personality cult after kim il sung's in n. korea.
i also remember reading that kim jong il watched this footage for days on end
Keep the change, ya filthy animal.
Sidebar: if Romanians really want to speak a bastardized form of Latin, why not just go for Spanish and integrate with the nearly half a billion other earthlings who speak it?
same reason america wont go metric
We CAN'T go metric! It would slightly alter our football terminology!
We Romanians will not stand for murderous tyranny!
Now let's all go revere Vlad the Impaler.
The myth of the benevolent tyrant was ingrained in our culture long before Ceaushescu used it to further his regime. Even after Ceaushescu, his right hand man Iliescu (BTW a strange coincidence is that all our presidents last names for the last 50 years have ended in "escu") had one illegal term immediately after the coup and further two legal ones (92-96, 00-04). Our current president Basescu(aka popeye the sailor man) also knows how to take advantage of this apparent masochistic desire of romanians.
Also Vlad was cool! He is a hero to us and he wasn't nearly as sadistic as he was portrayed by the Hungarian merchants he was trying to fight off. It's funny how everyone knows about him being sadistic but no one ever mentions how romanians were colonized and had no right in their own country for hundreds of years... bla bla bla hungarians tortured romanian rebels... bla bla bla bloody uprisings... bla bla bla fucking bozgors! bla bla bla no one really cares.

I remember that they showed this pretty much uncut on the U.S. news. It was only a year or two after Budd Dwyer and I thought that TV news was going to be just completely badass by '95 or so. Wrong :-(.
Don't even get me started.
There are alot of urban myths going around that most of the soldiers who participated in the execution committed suicide after a few years.
They killed em on fucking Christmas day!
BTW the romanian custom is to slaughter pigs on Christmas this adding a whole new layer of insult to the whole affair.
