 citizens. Even many Americans disagree strongly with US politicians. The v

iolence part of Hong Kong protesters is what an average American would frown upon.上海千花网

There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa

上海千花网shington Post by a group from the academic, foreign policy, military and business communities, overwhelmingly from

the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.

The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar上海千花网女神会所

ket share for Chinese companies and an increase in China’s role in world affairs…. We do not believe Beijing is an ec

nomic enemy or an existential national security threat that must be confronted in every sphere.”上海千花网

It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay

away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact-t

hat Hong Kong is part of China. Upholding the “one country, two systems” principle is the first step toward上海千花网女神会所

restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are

contributing to it, for, as the open letter mentioned earlier also says, “Efforts to isolate

China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”上海千花网

The wrong crowd cannot represent you, and you are the most unique if you avoid the crowd and turn back now.

The riots have become 上海会所iolent. The police ha

But this is also an exact description of the rising violence between two bitterly distrustful religious communities that I witn

essed on the streets of my native Belfast in British-ruled Northern Ireland exactly-uncannily-half a century ago as a te上海会所

enager in that unforgettable, agonizing August of 1969. The lessons I learned then would serve the people of the H

上海会所品茶微信ong Kong Special Administrative Region well today before they bring an unimaginable disaster upon themselves.

Violent protests against authorities never bring peace. They only bring war, destruction

and suffering-almost always on a scale that none of the demonstrators could have imagined when they took to the上海会所

streets. Prosperity never follows violent protests. At best, there is mass unemployment and despair as local bu

sinesses and national investment flee the territory-a process which could continue for decades. You do not build fac上海会所品茶微信

tories and hire workers when those factories could be razed in one of the endless clashes.

The “freedom” the demonstrators in Hong Kong have been demanding is illusory. It is fool’s gold. It is the mythical pot o

上海会所f gold at the end of the rainbow. This kind of “freedom” will never benefit the people of Hong Kong. At best it could be gra

nted, but at the cost of a serious decline in investment from both the Chinese mainland and other regions of Asia.

Hong Kong’s enormous advantage for decades, including the past two decades under Chinese a上海会所品茶微信

utonomous rule, has been that it is considered a secure, predictable and safe place to do business wit

h the mainland and with the wider region. But that no longer seems true. The longer the protests rage and the wi上海会所

der and more serious they become, the more that incalculable advantage will be eroded.

When I was a young boy, Belfast was still the largest ship building center on earth. In the late上海会所品茶微信

1960s, the British government invested in two gigantic gantry cranes called Goliath and Samson-at the time the

largest such pieces of machinery in the world-to build super oil tankers. They still stand today as tourist attr

orthern Irish Civil War (known with masterly understatement as “The Troubles”) saw to that.

The great shipyard that at its peak employed 35,000 workers became an indust上海会所品茶微信

China rejects US ‘thug上海419论坛ime’ description

On Friday the Foreign Ministry rejected the United States’ labeling China as “a thuggish regime”, saying Washington has confo

unded right with wrong in an attempt to conceal the fact it interferes in China’s domestic affairs上海419论坛

The spokesperson of the US State Department was astonished to claim the job of American diplomats was to meddle with t

上海419论坛品茶微信he domestic affairs of other countries, the ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.

“Can the world be at peace with the way the US operates?” Hua asked in the statement.

Hua’s comments came as US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus on Thursday called China a “thuggish regime” for disclosing pho上海419论坛品茶微信

tographs and personal details of a US diplomat who met with major leaders of the “Hong Kong Independence” activist groups.

The US State Department spokesperson should look at her own words and behaviors instead of using media reports to hit

上海419论坛out at the government of another country, Hua said, adding US interference in Hong Kong affairs has arous

ed resolute opposition and strong indignation from the Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots.

She urged the US side to observe international law and basic norms governing intern上海419论坛

ational relations, and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs and interfering in China’s domestic affairs.

上海419论坛品茶微信The Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the H

ong Kong Special Administrative Region also said on its website that the labeling is a b

latant slander against China, which has confounded right with wrong and again exposed US gangster logic and hegemonic thinking.上海419论坛

The spokesperson said that instead of repenting of and stopping its arb

上海419论坛品茶微信itrary interference in Hong Kong affairs, which are China’s domestic affairs, the US side

has made venomous and unfounded allegations against the Chinese government

for the leak of the information. It perceives China with malice, which again reveals its dark mentality.
