    Fak CCP! Cause a civil war in China and the CCP will collapse.
    The world must unite and destroy the evil CCP.
    If the CCP have no human rights, then we don’t have to treat them as humans.

      @Ben it's because Hong Kong has different laws. If this was mainland China the protesters would already be dead and organs harvested.

      Yeah....no. This is one tiny city. As far as I'm aware, most of China's people are too scared or brainwashed to do something like that.

    Thank goodness the police force is keeping the public safe from these sponsored terrorists and rioters. Otherwise, these tyrants and maniacs would have caused even more deaths and damages to the institution and the society.

    CBS is a typical Western media, whenever, they got a chance, they find a way to tarnish China. This only creates misunderstand and hatred between the two nations.

    If the rioters werent stopped the whole of hk will become like that campus- unliveable in.
    Doesnt mean you dont need to have responsibility just bcos you have freedom. freedom is to be used responsibly, if you cant, it should be taken away for everyones safety.

    These terrorists have no remorse when it comes to destroying public or other people's properties, and even must add insult to the victim by leaving sarcastic apology because they feel they will not be caught nor face the consequence.
    The death of the innocent 70-year old man at the hands of these terrorists although tragic but it serves a higher cause. It clearly revealed the true nature of this crisis. These radicals are nothing but cold blooded murderers and terrorists, and they have no remorse for all their violent acts.

    Can't wait to round them up and wipe the smirk off their face.

    Hong Kong has been ranked as the world's freest economy in the Index of Economic Freedom of The Heritage Foundation for 24 consecutive years, since its inception in 1995. The index measures restrictions on business, trade, investment, finance, property rights and labour, and considers the impact of corruption, government size and monetary controls in 183 economies. Hong Kong is the only economy to have scored 90 points or above on the 100-point scale, achieved in 2014 and 2018.

    Hong Kong's GDP (under British rule) in 1996 was US$154.2 billion (US$23,843 per capita).
    Hong Kong's GDP (free from British rule) in 2017 was US$454.9 billion (US$61,393 per capita).

    The British rule already ended 22 years ago, all Chinese/Asian Hong Kongers should rejoice because you are now FREE from western imperialism/colonialism. Only dogs would choose to return to eat their own vomit.

    The US congress approved the BILL and supporting HongKong protesters. They (students) just patience and continue fighting against HK police forces (PLA behind) attack students and then US forces will jump-in (secret) , support arms to Protesters to build small arm to start revolution from HK to China. It takes time to destoy communism.

    Gordon Chang on China? what a joke. he seems to be trying really hard to keep in the excitement within not to show on his face, after all, this is something in his mind, could be interpreted as a beginning sign of collapse of China, ever since his prediction of China's collapse in his book, which never happened.

  • Little Wing Jhendrix
    Little Wing Jhendrix 23 days ago

    So now Gordon Chang is saying that China instigates the protests and China wants these protests to continue ? How twisted can one be just so one can bash China.
