Use your noodle.

Read my 2nd paragraph. You're basically agreeing with me. I was arguing against the post that said China shouldn't have existed.

That's comedy gold right there. So the protestors are fighting against democracy. Sure. Chinese democracy, where your 'elected' leader appoints himself president-for-life. That's not much of a democracy...

Someone need some reading comprehension lesson.

No, because the Internet wasn't widely available to the public then.

Never said did you posted online.

Why not give them the freedom to vote for leaders of their choice?

Did you also posted this question during all those years of British rule (aka Hong Kongers weren't allowed to vote for their governors)?

China is an appalling country, the world would be so much better if they didn't exist.

This comment ranks right up there in dumbness. I hope you mean the CCP and not China (a civilization having a few thousand years of history). If China didn't exists, almost all of the people populating present day HK, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore, etc wouldn't exist. Same for ethnic Chinese people in Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Peru, US, Indonesia, etc.

I have only one statement which is from New Hampshire's state motto and I really like this, "Live free or die".

@Cliffy - I highly doubt if you and your loved ones were given the choice: Live in China (Vietnam, Cuba, etc) or die, that you would choose death for all.

It's much easier to be a keyboard warrior.

Another day, another shooting in the United States of America ... when will this madness end?

That's like asking how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? Answer: The world may never know.

China has never claimed any of these islands that ate many thousands of miles from mainland US. All these have been claimed by the US!

Agree. good point. You'll get down-voted by the usual group of US cheerleaders here, tho.

Shocking photos show police in riot gear tackling protesters to the ground amid mass demonstrations in the city. Some protestors were smashed on the head with police batons.

You should see the violence done to Yellow Vest protesters in France. The HK police acted mildly by comparison.

Singapore does not have free speech. Why don't these tech companies slag off China, which is far worse?

Or Russia? But anyway, China doesn't pretend or say they're a democracy, tho?

So China's only how many decades late to the party?

At least they're at the party, right? About 99% of other countries are beyond late.

It would be interesting to read about accidents had by Chinese and Russian navies for comparison. But given both nations are run by totalitarian regimes that control their media it's probably impossible to get accurate - and honest - information.

Also, would be interesting to read about accidents had by Angolan, Zimbabwean, Gabonese armed forces for further comparison.

So you're looking forward to a time when the world's supreme economic leader is a -- Communist dictatorship? Well, I'm not. I guess I'm strange that way.

Probably would be less hostilities than now. I think the US has been involved in more wars, regime changes, invasions, etc in the past 100 yrs or so than any other country.

The money can go back and rebuild Africa 

Can any amount of money bring that continent in line with the other continents? About 60-70 years ago, South Korea & Singapore were poorer than most African countries. Both SK & SGP has progressed tremendously, since then.

1/6 of the world lives in India. 

But China has a higher population, yet foreign female tourists/expats generally felt safer there than in India.

They are proven talented actors and actresses that I'd prefer to watch regardless of what race a role is supposed to be.

If Asian/Asian-Americans actors/actresses are not given opportunities to even play Asian/Asian-American characters, then how would they ever develop into "proven talented actors and actresses"?

Posted in: In rare bipartisan display, U.S. Democrats back Trump on China trade probe See in context

With one enormous difference. China is an authoritarian dictatorship with aspirations of military and territorial expansion and a declared intent to re-write the post WWII world order. They have openly declared an all-fronts war in which economics, trade, technology transfers, everything is all part of advancing their goal of returning China to it's ancient glory of thousands of years ago.

Doubt it. The US wasn't all that nice too when it was doing the same to Britain. Slavery, discrimination (of blacks, browns, yellows, etc), genocide (Native Americans) happened. Took quite a long while for these wrongs to be righted. It also had the Monroe Doctrine.

China has a pattern. They have been following it.

It's the same pattern the US did to Britain. Same pattern Japan did to US. Same pattern S. Korea did to Japan.

"Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence" don't come close to telling the story. An accurate production would be too violent and bloody even by today's standards.

Couldn't be as violent and/or bloody as any production of the Rape of Nanking right? Yeah, I doubt it would be.
