Aristo Intel Agencies Use Lazy-Think Progressives For Fake Hong Kong Psy-Op

China is not realistically communist. It's really just dynastic, wearing a convenient mask of communism, just to provide cover for the dictatorship it has really been for at least 3,000 years (although often fragmented and at civil war). In the USSA we have an aristocratic dictatorship wearing a convenient mask of democracy and imaginary citizen participation. It appears that the USSA has more freedom (although 12 year old girls can drink beer in China). Let us hope that China refrains from taking over the planet.
The relatively tiny Hong Kong minority could have had a splendid life, but our USSA intel agencies convinced them to rebel over a very tiny policy amendment, and now... Now the Hong Kongers are well and truly f*****. A camp of suckers and their lifestyle are soon parted. Too bad. The real lesson is: Just stop listening to slick con artists.

Then how do you explain what Carrie Lam supposedly said today? 02.Sep.2019 14:57

That this is her fault. Would resign if she could.

That she was not pressured by the mainland government to do this (that they were willing to wait)

Sounds to me like she was just trying to show the mainland government how good/cooperative she was, probably for her political future, and backfired badly.

Is This "Carrie Lam" "Chief Executive of Hong Kong"? 02.Sep.2019 15:37

How does what some Hong Kong politician's statement make any difference? The results will be the same.

Though it is a bit strange for you to seem so sure about the issues/causes if you don't know the players.

People in Hong Kong might see the "little adjustment" differently than you do. The point here is that the "agreement" was for a certain number of years of local autonomy. So what you see as a "little adjustment" they probably see as a "trial balloon" about ending the agreement early.

In spite of what Lam said (and was leaked, probably intentionally) about this NOT at being the instigation of the mainland government (but presumably just her trying to curry favor) might or might not be true. But released so as to try to calm down the reaction/fears about early termination of local autonomy. THAT would not be a "little" adjustment.

Oh! Another Wonderful United Kingdon Imperial "Agreement"! 02.Sep.2019 19:23

You are just so. The "agreement"! Ha ha ha ha ha!

This was just another "United Kingdom" agreement. Just the kind that the UK left behind to raise hell in Pakistan and India and Arabia and Africa, and uh, Ziostan. Same type of unilateral United Queendom "agreement" that has killed millions of innocent people so the UK Aristocrats could feel powerful by drawing nonsensical arbitrary lines.

UK one-sided paper "agreement" with the UK opium dealers my sweet ass. Bullshit.
