US Congress, secessionists deceive HK

Hong Kong is not a country. Hong Kong has no major political disputes, and life in Hong Kong is freer than in Western societies. Western anti-China forces and Hong Kong's extreme opposition have politicized the city. This is the new shackles that Hong Kong must shake off.
