Distorted Coverage of the Hong Kong Riots

US-based George Koo is a veteran analyst who always writes sensibly about world affairs. Below is his useful, insightful and accurate recounting of the Hong Kong turmoil — a must-read for those who haven’t followed the dramatic events closely. It is interesting, and revealing, that pro-West, Sinophobic Asia Times should headline Koo’s piece as “an alternative view” of the HK upheaval … instead of, say, “a mainline view” or a “comonsense view.” Koo’s conclusion is right on the money: “Sadly, if the young people of Hong Kong decide to cast their lot with the US, they will become disillusioned by a dysfunctional democracy that they’ll get to see up close. And they will miss the opportunity of hitching their future to a China going in the right direction.”
