Demonstrators betray hidden US hand behind HK protests: China Daily editorial

虎扑9月16日讯在昨日的国际篮联篮球世界杯决赛中场休息期间,世界杯全球大使、湖人名宿科比-布莱恩特与耐克全球副总裁兼大中华区总经理董炜女士,教育部学生体育协会联合秘书处秘书长、中学生体育协会主席薛彦青先生进行了耐克中国高中篮球联赛球衣交接仪式,并共同宣布耐克与中国中学生体育协会正式合作并联合举办耐克中国高中篮球联赛。 中央杭州飞机制造厂下线飞机,“两弹一星”元勋钱学森曾在该厂实习全面抗战爆发后,杭州成为中日空军再次交锋的主要地域之一。 本次大赛是东莞首届以女性为主题的创业大赛,专家评价指出,大赛整体规格高,参赛项目领域新,参赛队伍实力强,点燃起巾帼“双创”梦想,在东莞掀起了女性创新创业的新高潮。 湖泗镇 海通乡 华墟

A chameleon can change only its color but never its skin. For an apt example, look no further than the demonstrators in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. On the surface, they may seem to be protesting to safeguard the freedom they enjoy or seek more freedom. Dig a little deeper and it will be evident their motive is anything but that.

On Sunday, the evidence was visible on the streets of the SAR where thousands of demonstrators marched to the United States consulate, urging US President Donald Trump to "liberate" their city.

Do we need more evidence to prove outside forces are behind the separatist demonstrations in the SAR?

The fact that the demonstrators, many of them in black shirts and wearing masks, waved the US flag and carried posters that read "President Trump, please liberate Hong Kong" should fly in the face of Washington, which has denied any role in the SAR protests.

Slogans such as "Resist Beijing, Liberate Hong Kong" and "Stand with Hong Kong, Fight for freedom" that the insurrectionists shouted speak volumes about what they really want. Worse, in a letter reportedly submitted to the US consulate officials, the separatists have urged Washington to pass the proposed "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act 2019".

Hong Kong is an inseparable part of China — and that is the bottom line no one should challenge, not the demonstrators, not the foreign forces playing their dirty games.

The demonstrators, students in particular, who have been cajoled by outside forces into believing in something that is not only impossible but also harmful to even attempt should know they are being led into a dark tunnel with no opening.

That the outside forces' evil designs are doomed to failure can never be overemphasized, but it is a pity some Hong Kong youths are so detached from reality that they still believe the US is an epitome of fairness and justice.

It's time for them to return to their senses and stop trying the patience of the central government. They have already challenged the bottom line of "one country, two systems" by seeking US help to achieve their nefarious goal of "Hong Kong independence".

The demonstrations in Hong Kong are not about rights or democracy. They are a result of foreign interference. Lest the central government's restraint be misconstrued as weakness, let it be clear secessionism in any form will be crushed. The Hong Kong SAR is an integral part of China and will remain so.
