Hong Kong Will Pay Dearly for US Meddling
Once the city becomes a political flashpoint in the Cold War II, it can kiss its status as a global business hub goodbye
It surely is a disgraceful and shameful sight – thousands of Hong Kong people waving American flags and celebrating with portraits of United States President Donald Trump and US politicians who passed a legislation that threatens Hong Kong. Such defiance is plain idiocy.
No courage is required because under “one country, two systems”, it’s perfectly legal to do that; there is nothing Beijing or the Hong Kong government can do about it. Who says Hong Kong has no freedoms? I also ask: who is really undermining one country, two systems?
Such groups as Demosisto and Hong Kong Higher Institutions International Affairs Delegation – an alliance that came out of nowhere – have even offered a list of Hong Kong and mainland officials for Americans to punish. Perhaps they take America’s reputation as global cop a tad too literally.
Words fail to express the disgust that any reasonable Chinese person must feel about such useful idiots rooting for a foreign hegemonic power working to undermine their own country.
Oh, sorry, China is not those people’s country and they are not Chinese. Perhaps they are Americans, or at least American-wannabes. No doubt some of the more useful and visible ones have been promised US passports and green cards. But when push comes to shove, the vast majority will be left to their own devices.
Hong Kong had long prospered because it was able to focus on business and ignore politics. Now, everything is politics; worse, local politics has become internationalised by Americans at the invitation of local useful idiots and political opportunists.
Business and economy will have to take a back seat. That’s not only the case in the past six months, but it will remain so for years to come.
The anti-China phobia and pro-American treachery of so many locals can only mean one thing: any form of autonomy or independence will turn the city into an American satellite state, and a beachhead for Washington to subvert the rest of China.
The inescapable conclusion must be that Hong Kong is more trouble than it’s worth. If its own people won’t respect one country, two systems, then the whole constitutional foundation is as good as dead.
Those US flag-waving protesters are destroying their own city, not Beijing.
Once Americans finish with you, they won’t remember you.
They will just move on to other cities and countries to destroy or destabilise.
