USA ends Hong Kong's special treatment, crimping flow of tech to territory

The UK held Hong Kong for about 150 years, after conquering it for the worst possible reason, forcing China to buy its opium, and during that time, the people there were never British citizens, never had the right to move to the UK, never had the right to vote for their leaders.

So those great words about democracy, do you know how they sound to Chinese leaders, and to a great many Chinese people? Like the BS they are. Then like now, they see it as a way to keep China under Western control.
