People need to face facts, just as the Falkland Islands should really be returned to Argentina, so HK should return to China.


No one has said Hong Kong should not have been handed over to China, but if you want to get into territories being given to other powers it's hardly unthinkable for China to negotiate something away. Look at the size of the territory Russia stole from China many decades ago - China eventually accepted Russian control of it. Was that a fact China had to face? Or does it show that what "should" happen is irrelevant to what can and realistically will happen?

If you want to go into the Falklands, the fact people need to face is that the islands' future can only be decided by its inhabitants. That's the UK's policy. So unless Argentina wants to repeatedly fight wars over it, it should start playing nice rather than think being unpleasant will make the islanders like it.
"People are the water, the ruler is the boat; water can carry the boat, but it can also capsize it."

-- Li Shimin (2nd Tang Emperor, "Taizong")
