I think I've seen it all.

Trump in Helsinki testified to that.

We don't call the shots for the world. Because if we did then one day some other country will do it to us.
Sure, but Chinese propaganda is Chinese propaganda. We can agree on that at least.

The government has to be careful. If I were them I would stick to discrediting the protesters until they are irrelevant.


The best way to support authoritarianism is through a passive and indifferent population, not a terrorized or subjugated one.
They don't have the Internet that we know. About a billion of them have their views set by WeChat. Most of the people on the mainland, support the crackdown.

The Peoples Republic of China, called out Hillary Clinton & Obama as Warmongers. It's true, hence, not propaganda.



Remember those two are considered war criminals in much of the non-Western world.

Most presidents have been warmongers. It's big business for the military industrial complex.

Let's See.

Wars of Choice started by Presidents.
  • Bush Sr - (1) Iraq war 1.
  • Clinton - (2) Kosovo, Somalia
  • Bush Jr - (1) Iraq war 2. [Afghanistan at this point was not a war of choice]
  • Obama/Hillary - (4) Syria, Libya, Yemen, 150,000 Troops sent to Afghanastan to nation build
  • Trump (0) - Trump has not started ANY wars.
Trump defeated the Clintons/Obama/Bush, some of the worst warmongers in the country's history. Aren't you glad?


The Chinese were right about Clinton/Obama.

Hong Kong does not belong to China. Hong Kong does not belong to anyone.

It belongs to the people of Hong Kong.
