The Obama administration adopted policies that appeared to favour the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as regards aid to charities and Hilary called for Morsi's release after he was arrested. The administration went so far as to call for a ''process'' of his release. Obama used the term ''Moderate Islamists'' to describe the Muslim Brotherhood. In a speech at Cairo University in 2009 he appeared to endorse a pan-Islamist and trans-national answer to the Middle East's rule by military hardmen.
The real irony is that someone complained that the HK police let the protesters enter the parliament and vandalise the place to make them (the protesters) look "bad"!
So the plan was to get stopped by police and get beaten up (preferably in front of all available cameras)?
Why did they bring the flag and spray paint then?
After this protest they need to protest against the new treaty even more, because it now might affect them.
"Liu Xiaoming, China's ambassador to London, told reporters on Thursday the U.K was still acting as Hong Kong's colonial master. 'In the minds of some people, they regard Hong Kong as still under British rule. They forget ... that Hong Kong has now returned to the embrace of the Motherland,' he said. Liu added: 'I tell them: hands off Hong Kong and show respect. This colonial mindset is still haunting the minds of some officials or politicians.'"
Ha - embrace of the motherland. More like mother is practising slow strangulation and suffocation.
"He cited the late Christian evangelist Billy Graham, who had said he would not spend time alone with any woman who was not his wife, as well as Vice-President Mike Pence, who has said he will not eat alone with a woman other than his wife."
I don't know what I feel more sorry about - the above statement or the fact he is 36 but looks more like 46.
I imagine the honeymoon would have been interesting, in a Siberian teepee along the banks of tractor factory 28 at the height of the Soviet Union's resistance to Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher circa 1988. It doesn't get more intoxicating or glamorous than that!
