china cant wait more to show its true face to hongkong and flex its muscles to the world! By making full use of what US has decently offered since Clinton’s time, China has grown into a robust demon threatening the world! It has been almost a year since HongKongProtests.

America is having crisis on multiple fronts, pandemic, economy, Trump, and now with cops shooting at people inside their homes, driving onto crowds, shooting bullets and others things at journalists, but Murdoch's says, 'look at Hong Kong!'. American people，can you breathe？ They start to lose trust to Hong Kong policies and worried if they could keep the country as one.

Nancy Pelosi:AMERIAN PROTESTER it's a beautiful sight to behold！ Look at the successive violent incidents in the United States, which is even higher than that in Hong Kong. The United States should deal with its own affairs attentively Yes you've got the answer. They knew it all the way. This was official survey in 1984. 85% supported staying under 🇬🇧's rule.

the only answer worth considering... He should honor his own words. The PRC has been laying in the weeds, ever since the accord with Britain was signed, waiting for this moment - when it perceives the west as weak. Totalitarian regimes have no patience for democratic principles, save consumerism and a willingness to sell technology
OK, just keep glorifying the Hong Kong terrorists. The karma is not strong enough huh? We have our own problems, can't police Hong Kong+China becoz they want to suppress for those fighting for freedom and democracy. They just want them to keep the mouth shut. Fight against Beijing!

One country two system is a joke! Chinazi ChinaMustPay China_is_terrorist 灯还没打开，蟑螂就准备跑了 Simple, because China is tired of US meddling HK.

Since the Hong Kong police can not control the riots in Hong Kong, let the Chinese government control it!
This is the reason, Is this what you call democracy and freedom？ Hong Kong is just an asset to the US against CN. Your country officers care about power and money than HK people's life. It's their domestic law anyway.... There’s only one answer: the CCP is evil! What CCP did to HongKong and its own people should serve as a wake up call to the rest of the world: CCP will do the same to anyone if given the chance and power, just look at how it bullies Australia, bribes WHO, lies to the world ...
