YouTube videos of iconic historical events

Just when you started the think that YouTube was only good for showing off cute animals and supporting the doctrine of total depravity, Mashable comes along and puts together a list of 10 Incredibly Inspirational Moments on You Tube. (This, by the way, is a horrible title. I almost didn’t click on the link because I thought it was going to be a bunch of sappy inspirational stories. Instead, it’s a list of truly iconic moments in history captured on video. The only ones that don’t seem as historically significant are the Stephen Hawking and Roger Bannister videos.)

My favorite on this list has to be the video of the Tiananmen Square demonstration in 1989. But, here are all the video clips included in the list.
