HONG KONG CAN’T BE TAKEN OVER BY THE PRC, IT’S BEEN PART OF THE PRC SINCE 1997
Vince Dhimos answered a question at Quora by another querier badly smitten by the US propaganda machine. You see what they have done to this poor fellow. They have played with his mind, grotesquely twisting the objective truth, namely, that the US is up to its old colour revolution tricks again, this time deceiving Hong Kongers into believing that it is all Beijing’s fault that rioters are wrecking their city when in fact the PRC isn’t even involved. And now half the world believes this vicious lie and thinks Hong Kong needs to be saved by the US, the country that plunged it into chaos in the first place. This same scenario has played out for decades in different versions and colours. Yet much of the world has yet to see the wizard behind the curtain. They fall for it every time. The PRC knows it is in trouble no matter which way it turns, having fallen victim to another trap set by the crafty manipulators in Washington, but it has decided to step in to put an end to the violence no matter what.
Will the USA remain idle if China tries to swallow Hong Kong?
It’s not a matter of “swallowing” anything. Hong Kong is an autonomous region that BELONGS to the PRC but is independently governed by the locals. The PRC is NOT depriving HK of anything, it is trying to keep the US-backed hooligans from burning everything down and killing the cops. But Americans are so steeped in the anti-China and rah-rah USA propaganda they are exposed to 24/7 from their press and politicians that many of them have long lost the natural empathy that humans are born with.
It is a situation analogous to the current riots sweeping the US. Do you suppose the people living in the US areas that are being torched are happy to have their neighbourhoods destroyed? The very same thing applies to Hong Kong. People who live and work in Hong Kong are in danger from these US-sponsored thugs and their main concern now is to see this rioting stopped ASAP. The PRC is finally hearing their pleas for help and is about to step in. It was a tough decision because they know that the US is eager to do as much harm as it can to the Chinese economy and society and to topple a government that serves the people and not politics, as American politicians have done by catering to their billionaire cronies and putting the poor and middle class in a calamitous situation where half of Americans cannot afford health care. PRC officials have their foibles but they have not done this to their people.
Imagine if China sponsored criminals to come to your town and burn down shops and endanger the lives of people out on the street? You would be very unhappy with China for doing this. Yet the average American, who is devastated by the hooliganism sweeping his own nation thinks the Hong Kong people should be just thrilled to death that the US is backing criminals to ruin their lives and destroy their property and their environment. And the American government that sponsored this chaos is not doing a THING to protect the lives and property of the Hong Kong people whom they have put in this precarious situation with their regime change effort! Yet many indoctrinated Americans think Hong Kong should be grateful to the meddling bullying USA that is ruining their lives.
Let’s try to understand the misery the US is causing elsewhere and have some compassion on the ones America is injuring. It should be easier to understand their plight now that Americans are in the same situation with chaos swirling all around them. Americans could actually be thankful for this rare opportunity to see what it is like to suffer from the disasters the US is creating around the world for others. If Americans can eventually acquire just a smidgen of empathy through all the pain, there will be no more war, no more sanctions and no more regime change operations of the Hong Kong type. And America might just make a few friends again.
