There's discontent in the USA.

Do you think the Chinese government is portraying that mews the same way the USA media is portraying this discontent?

Media manufactures and aids the government in trying to 'convince' the people of the government's cause.

That's why we're in Yemen, Somolia, Sudan, Libya, Syria and more.

The USA KNOWS what is 'best' for every country.

Oh yeah, more than half the USA population is unhappy with the governing officials HERE.

I do not understand why people want to be ruled by their "own kind."

If the British had continued to rule Hong Kong and various African countries, those people would be much freer today.

I have just read that people in Detroit are so tired of being misruled by "their own kind" that they are willing to vote for a mayor of European ancestry!
