dont blame the chinese, blame the british on trying to make themselves look good by BORROWING the island for 100 years... isnt that nice?.. were just BORROWING

so now after the 100 year deal we ought to give them back... what can we do?... well... to look good, give them back of couse...

so now those hong kie dont wanna go back, well heck, you lack power without the british at your back. so you either go back or get conquered back... what can you do? go back of couse...

so now after 10 years, you came and start saying SHOULD it go back? well, if you think it shouldnt, then why didnt you protest 10 years ago? i mean, start a war of china vs hong kong.... lets see who wins... and the winner gets to take the land...

there is no choice as SHOULD, so you cant do feces about it... especially when you cant change the past


I KNOW it's already been taken back. I just want to know other people's opinion on this. And I don't think there's anyone in Hong Kong who wanted China to take back Hong Kong. But they had no say.

I'm talking about China's policies and not the chinese themselves. I don't blame the British of trying to make themselves look good. They helped Hong Kong flourish and that's all it matters. They borrowed it for 99 years by the way.

After the 99 year deal, they HAD to give it back, whether it made them look good or not. Although the British did suggest that Hong Kong continued part of their colonies, China REJECTED THE OFFER.

It was not that they lacked power without the British. It was because of the laws passed to the city. They had no choice, so they ended up with China. Do you expect hong kong to blow it's city up? WTH?

Hahahaaaa very funny, there's no way I could of protest 10 years ago. Start a war of china vs Hong kong? What are u, retarded?

Yes, I do know I can't change the past. but I can change the view of the past.

others opinions? well, what use is opinions when such thing had already happened?!

china;s policies? well, so youre anti commie? i am too. british helped hong kong.. well feces. theyre their colony. of couse you help it so you can earn from it... okay 99 years...

so youre saing china is the bad guys? well, heck. if i say im better than you so i borrow your daughter for 5 years with a formal contract so its all legal and stuff... but when the time is up.. i dont wanna return... but heck, would you not want your daughter back?

what you said made it seems like they have to go back to china because china demand for it and they cant do feces.

well, youre wrong, they can do a lot of feces!
what you ask?
well, like you said, blow up the city, kill the mainlanders, suicide bombers, heck, theres all those other shits.

youre a idiotic fucktart

the issue is over 10 years ago, you cant do feces, so stop screaming




Why I can't I want opinions? If life is gonna end sonner or later, why don't you just die?

Ya ok, I want my daughter back so she can cook, clean for me and I can use her as my slave. Is that it?

WTF is wrong with you? Dont start arguing with other people when ur in a dreamworld. WTH DO U THINK THIS WORLD IS? A GAME?

More like u' re the one screaming at me in the first place.


very funny ma'am, it is our animal instincts to stay alive and to spread our genes -- especially on the verge of death. me dying due to a comment of yours is unlikely.

why give in to fate when you have the power to change it? we can play god, can we not? deny nature!

yes, like you said, you want your daughter back. so isnt it the same as how china wants hong kong back?

China REJECTED THE OFFER.
that is rather expected

my dear me, a game it is. yet, unlike games, our world isnt one that you can start over. time is limited, and death is once. so lets call it a game of life that moves on nonstop.

please ma'am, i do think im trying to enlighten you here.


I was merely stating a fact that if you think something that's over should not be talked about. Then history shouldn't of been mention. I just want to discuss history and u're blowing up on me.

Did I give in to fate? Unless you think death is part of fate.

This is a game of life, and we will play this game until we die. But whatever I do in this game, does not need you screaming at my opinion on life.

we study history in order to repeat history without the failure of our processors.

if that is your standing, i have no say.


We study history to NOT repeat the same mistakes. Isn't that why we have history in school?

i doubt anything drastic will happen in china anytime soon. the CCP is still firmly in power, and there doesn't seem to be anything that will change that. however the world's governments will certainly face a major crisis once we run out of fossil fuels, and the ice caps melt.


I still think hong kong would be better off with the british than with china.

Should we gamble our planet, risking it to go into an ice age? should we continue polluting the planet like we are now?

China will change if their industrialization fails. Otherwise, I don't see how it would change, like you said.

I was over generalizing China as a whole. Sorry. After the industrialization of China, there has been more freedom for people to express their ideas without getting severally punished. For an example, their entertainment industry. There are some excellent actors, directors who produce historical dramas worth watching. I do hope China will eventually turn into a really free country. As to how you see China is a free country, is up to you to decide.

Well I'm with you on the opinion that Hong Kong should've been retained its position as a British colony instead.

I am in no way supporting colonization or an advocate of British powers, it's just that frankly, I don't think China can help Hong Kong flourish to its present state the way the British did. Yes, the British might be the colonizers but anyone can see that they did their own part in helping its colony to progress and move on forward. Colonization in general is bad, but in some cases it is actually beneficial--only if the colonizers treated the natives as equals and help them in furthering themselves. Hong Kong is one of those rare cases.

I dunno, the way China is now, doesn't strike me as...well, something. In fact, the turnover of Hong Kong to China might just drag down the island's economy as a whole.

I don't know I heard there were mixed feelings about the british. Some hong kong people like british occupation some don't. Same with china.

But hong kong people are chinese no matter how you look at it.


I want cantonese independence!

its not like theres not going to be poor people under the rule of britian. there will always be a difference between rich and poor. hong kong is part of china but it was just under the rule of britian because of the treaty. the world is trying to keep peace, so if you borrowed something you have to give it back. My dream is that everyone in the world can work together and help one another. the world will be a better place. ahahahaha =]
