You know I find it really strange the coverage this is getting from MSM. You would think this is the only protest going on. WHY????? Yellow vests have been protesting a year by now and you would not know it according to American news. Makes you wonder why this protest is so worthy of being reported?

*Increasingly Violent Red Communists Attacking the Citizens of Hong Kong !!*
It looks like the beginnings of a civil war with Hong Kong and eventually Taiwan and could spread across Asia and become a humanitarian disaster, inciting the west to get involved in this rapidly deteriorating terrible conflict.

This whole HK protest is a setup to trap China into sending the military
force. It is extremely evident that the Trump administration is
forbidding US anti-rioting equipment company (NonLethal Technologies
Inc) for selling anti-riot gears to HK police! The US want HK to be
destabilized. The US want those young and stupid HK teenagers to
sacrifice themselves to gain whatever they try to gain through chaos. It
was never about freedom and democracy.

What a shame to Hong Kong, who care what serious the Hong Kong is, only Chinese people concerns...

Why too much Hong Kong youths have not their own idea to think of who wanna Hong Kong to be a place full of violence?
If the same thing happen in US...bang!bang!bang! Then, no sound there...
I support Hong Kong police remove all those terrorists...
China need to worry about them rather than interfering about India and Pak.

Keep doing it and don't stop till China and Hong Kong are separated like Taiwan. 😃😃😃👍👍👍

It is common sense that an effective way to deter bad behavior is punishment. In Hong Kong, we now have a situation that most of the violence offenders will be released soon after they are arrested. Why? Most Hong Kong judges are on rioters’ side because most of them are British-trained or with British citizenship. See WHO are on the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal! No wonder, the riot party in Hong Kong keeps rolling!

No, China cannot use deadly force. If they do, there will be world outrage. China exists as it does today because of Westerners. There will be hell to pay if they kill anyone.

They are not peaceful protesters. They are terrorists, probably having funding help from western countries to disrupt HK society. These terrorists must be stopped with whatever means possible.

Its going to be hard to assimilate these people into a totalitarian communist regime since they are use to living free. The chinese military will show up tomorrow and start cracking heads.

This isnt a peaceful protest! Its a riot! China must stop it at all cost! This isnt even safe for citizens
What does not report the cause of violent conflict: 1. A mainland Chinese tourist was severely beaten by mobs, and the mob did not allow the rescue team to go in for rescue! 2. A Chinese employee of the Global Times was beaten.

Yu Li:
The facts happend in HK are not in the peaceful way as the protestor said. Protestors used the violence on the tourists to force them accept their opinions.
