Global capitalism has already ruined the viability of war, and no one wants to end up like Russia.

World War III was already waged by multinational corporations, and they've planted their golden arch flags on every continent.

Russia today looks more and more like the Soviet Union though, especially since Putin's thuggish actions keep him in power.

Exactly, no one wants to end up like Russia.

Hey but wasnt trump that would lead to ww3 and make hundreds of artists flee to canada? I thought he was the real theat and not putin and poo bear. I really dont know who to trust anymore.



As a Hong Kong citizen, I really do believe that Hong Kong is a part of China. Hong Kong and Macau are Special Administrative Regions of China, meaning they are definitely part of China. We might use our own political system, currency, education and all that, but that's just part of being an SAR, and China will obey the principle of One Country Two Systems for at least another 20 something years. On that note I have a bit of a rant about Hong Kong's political landscape.

I am sick and tired of the pro-independence movement and Democrats in Hong Kong. Thanks to them any development in Hong Kong is stalled as their members often walk out of legislative council meetings. We had a chance to pass legislation on voting for our chief executive a few years back, guess who were the ones who blocked it? That's right, the Democrats, on reasons that what they had was not progressive enough. Seriously?! Just take things one step at a time! I would have no problem with those people if they are really pro-Hong Kong, but to me it feels more like they are anti-China, and they would destroy Hong Kong if it means they can hurt China. Rant over.

Of course, that doesn't mean I am pleased with how China handles Hong Kong. Right now, China probably views Hong Kong as a problem child, and thus most of its policy's just glance over Hong Kong. As more and more Chinese are coming down to Hong Kong, it feels like we are being slowly assimilated into China. And really that's what I'm more afraid of: losing our cultural identity. And if China ever tries to change Hong Kong into just another generic Chinese city? I would definitely be among the ones who would protest against that. But right now Hong Kong is already falling behind in development thanks to reasons I mentioned above, and if we don't change soon Hong Kong will lose its place as an international city.

And Macau? China has no problem with that place. After botching up the handover of Hong Kong, they learned a lot for the handover of Macau. Political parties in Macau are pretty unified and there is practically no call for independence in Macau, which is why China didn't address Macau in their statement.



*shrugs I smell cow patties.



I don't think anyone wants to conquer Canada anymore. Not after they've lost to Germany at the Olympic Games.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I feel sorry for the people under this tyrant.

Especially Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The PRC doesn't have de facto control of Taiwan, only de jure.



This dude has demonstrated so many psychopathic traits.

He's perhaps the most ambitious Chinese frontman in decades, with his nationalistic/populistic propaganda and his clear intention to never leave the throne, coupled with his strategic/manipulative ways, I'm afraid he's here to stay. I don't care much about much else but the fragile bit of liberty left within China is being eroded day by day and my parents still live there, it's a nightmare, and the worst thing is, he succeeds in capturing the middle class with wealth and the poorer class with a fictitious sense of pride, and no one is ready to listen to anything but.

Hey man I found your response very informative since you are from Hong Kong. In the USA i have no respect for modern democrats because of their repressive culture they have developed in their party by trying to scream down and silence anyone who disagrees with them. I always had a level of respect for Hong Kong Democrats because they bill themselves as battling communism.  Its crazy to know they  blocked voting for your own chief executive.  if the Democrats laid off the screeching in HK  do you think  You guys would progress more in your fight against China's rule?



He just wants to invade Taiwan and take them by force, killing dozens of thousands in the process, and make sure the rest of the world will close their eyes and pretend nothing is happening.
