    Don’t let Chinese students or technical workers come to the USA on H1B visas anymore, they absolutely cannot not be trusted. Technical people from China steal all our inventions. We should assume that Chinese Nationals coming here are working specifically against the USA. We do not need Chinese technical personnel to come to the USA, we can easily handle our own affairs without them. Everywhere the Chinese go they hurt the people living there. They colonize many other countries, steal the ideas, steal the natural resources, steal the economic resources, trap nations and people into one sided deals and economic agreements that only favor Chinese. The Chinese migrating abroad are “bad-actors” they refuse to play fair, and only want to be the aggressor and dominate all they see, like childish bullies.

    The world can see the true face of the Chinese CCP in Hong Kong and with their CCP-bio-weapon virus.

    Hong Kong and China will die together as One Country One System under the Xinjiang & Hong Kong National Security Law. No cities in China can replace Hong Kong. When the world gave up Hong Kong, Hong Kong people will have to stand on their own. This is how Hong Kong tragic is happening. Ignorant and retarded China!

    UK and China Hong Kong Agreement signed on 1997 is a United Nations responsibility, not China. China has NO RIGHTS to amend this agreement.

    If China don’t secure Hong Kong before 2047 then another foreign power will! It is now or never. Geopolitics are moving at too rapid a pace these days to take such a risk

    The China regime would not allow peace protest. They only call in hundreds of fully equipped police force to oppress the protester aggressive and brutally.

  38. ling j06 Reply

    Chinese living in mainland China can not express different ideas and voices. There will be danger and fear of people’s lives ‘being terminated’ because of comments and beliefs not in the interest of the Communists Party who rule the majority chinese people.

  39. ling j06 Reply

    The National People’s Congress is actually a nominally legislative assembly; it is an escort mechanism for the CCP’s one-party made laws. Other democratic nations will not approve it.

  40. ling j06 Reply

    The China Communist Party regime is the system of dictatorship and totalitarian. The one-party government despises democracy and freedom for civilians, they do not see people’s lives and social welfare programs are important.

  41. ling j06 Reply

    The criminal incident in Minnesota was deliberately used by saboteurs to destruct the freedom societies. It was a riot, not a peaceful protest.

    One country two systems will still exist after this as a national security law will not affect the current system in anyway.

  51. Chua SC Reply

    Tell USA, UK and EU or any country objecting national security laws for Hong Kong to abrogate their own national security laws. Otherwise, just shut up and do not interfere in the internal affairs of China.

    You might appreciate this man or not, but his words are worth having a review.
    “The United Nations has set justice aside, shamefully prostrating to evil forces and cowardly yielding to violence,” “The United Nations that my country helped form is now a hotbed of evil, and history will prove that the Republic of China’s declaration of withdrawal will also be the declaration of the destruction of the United Nations.”“My compatriots, the fate of our country is not in the hands of the United Nations, but in our own,” — quoted, Chiang, Kai-Shek. 1971, Oct 27

    UK invaded CHINA in 1841 opium war and unlawfully occupy HK. In 1997 after handover to CHINA, HK is completely free from UK colonization. Thereafter, any interference in HK intenal affairs will be deemed as intimidation of CHINA sovereignty and violation of international laws.
