WOW! A lot has happened since I last logged in. I will respond to some of the post when I get a few moment!

Meanwhile, I'll ask members here not to respond to off-topic post, or get into political discussions. I know it's difficult, because ultimately, all protest is political in nature.

I think we have done a very good job in "self-policing" this. However, I think there are a few members here would not be too unhappy if this thread get closed down! And I think they are doing their upmost in that direction.

So everyone, please be patient and don't take the bait!

Meanwhile, I saw this clip, and I thought it is a pretty good summary of what had happened in HK during the last few months! It's all facts and "half truth" (sorry, can't resist as we had been accused of posting "half truth")!

What is truth is that we didn't make up any of these. All what we see is out there for everyone to see. We didn't ask the mob to behave the way they did! in fact, they behave the way they did is because they are, under instructions by people behind the scenes!

Really? If you don't like the country's politics and system of government. Or if you think the country's rules, and laws are so abhorrent, and you valued your "freedom" above all else.

Then you can exercise your "freedom" and don't enter that maket you so disagree with!

The hypocrisy is that these firms are quite happy to make loads of money from the place they ...... find it so disagreeable, and feel they could comment under the guises of "free speach"! Without as much thought about "free speach" comes with responsibilities. Otherwise, we can all offend people by calling racist, xenophobic and other inappropriate remarks all in the name of "free speach"!

I'm curious about this. I've heard many many accusations but never any substantiation. What is the evidence for this? Any pictures, satellite imaging, etc...?
Noticed the deliberate use of the emotive words "internment camps"! Guatanomo bay anyone? Oh they don't count, because they are "non-combatants"! Lol

So when China, in combating terrorists, (let's not forget China borders Afghanistan, the very same country that USA spent 18 years fighting terrorism), and suspected terrorists are put into prison known as re-education centres, the MSM (which is where our friend get most of his infomation... not healthy), then call it "internment camps"! But when western nations do the same fighting "own-grown" terrorists, they are re-education centres! Lol.
