'give back'? Hong Kong is back in the hands of China. It was the British that fought an illegal war trying to smuggle opium into China that led to Hong Kong leased to British in the first place! Go study History you stupid child.
that was amazing. i was only 10 when it actually happened, i wished i was there welcoming our great PLA to HK
american should follow suit...handover colonnies to rightful.
Well done next stop Taiwan and next Singapore
they don't smile cause they're not high, and its a serious moment, after a 100 years of colonial rule China welcomes hk back to the motherland
I WAS THERE

This is probably one of the most important chapters in China's history - the return of HK. I am sure those who were there will never forget that day.
I must say, I think china seem to be the most mature country currently in the world. While USA and other nations (britain for example) use their army and force in a negative way to promote their ideas, china seem to be using diplomacy and logic.
I remember watching this live on TV ... The Hand over Ceremony was also broadcasted live on TV .. This was a very great moment for the Chinese. The Hong Kongers are now being protected by the their own people and not the Golden Beard Devils. And no way we're under them ...
LONG LIVE CHINA!
LONG LIVE SOCIALISM! :))))))))))))
(A friend from Hungary. :)
china is so powerful
China is nothing in comparison with India.
we Indian will rule CHINA.
LOL, as if the brits had any choice. Deng told Thatcher point-blank, give it up peacefully or I will have my boys take it back. Thatcher was so scared she fell down the steps of the Great Hall of the People.
Thatcher had nothing to fear, even Russia. The UK gave Hong Kong because of the 99 year lease.
Just because China has the largest army it doesn't mean it has low standards. It is rapidly modernizing and from what I've seen of their training and equipment (as an ADF member I do get insight into these things), it's quite a decently-trained and formidable force and I wouldn't be surprised if the PLA will soon be on par with the USDF in quality.
im sorry for u
at least they are marching into HK under the rain, not marching out of HK under the rain..who's better??? Hm....
Hey people ! I am a Chinese Canadian ! My parents are originally from Hong Kong !
We are successful. And you lose. That's the truth. Do you feel unpleasant? It's natural. And you will become less pleasant in future.
Pla protects Hong kong
But how can the PLA defend Hong Kong if they don't leave their designated area?
Jason Sanchez they can be requested to defend Hong Kong by the Chief Executive,
India can transport 20 soldiers on one motocycle, China can't
you can't win fight against India I challenge to you china.
proud to be an Indian.
There's no fight between us but china is more powerful. But india is good also.
The Chinese military personnel look like little boys, so fragile
I was 7 at that time I felt confused and scared far more than liberated
Just like you said, you were only 7, you won't even understand the meaning of liberation right? Your comment made no sense
Chan khung lei
maybe the British still cant accept their most prosperous colony return to their motherland.
lol they are liberating you from your colonial mindset. HKer are brainwash for 150 years... it will take at least 50 years to fix the brainwashing
China is one of the few Countries in the world that an Empire yet calls everybody else "Imperialists", and it is the only Empire that has been increasing in size.
china is to be compared with usa not with india
I was told the Chinese don't have any Aircraft Carrier!!!
goodbye England !
Well done China, well done. Even Western propaganda have not managed to create new "maidan" there. World is moving to post Pax Americana and post western reality. And that's good thing.

Get fucked Anglos
The British are a bunch of criminals. And so are their american cousins
@Ping Wang India was the world's largest #1 economy on earth in the 17th century before the British came to plunder the lands
Phead128 that’s a fucking lie. You wanna know why? Because India wasn’t even a fucking country it was a bunch of small states that were constantly at war with each other. Many Indians are glad the British came as they built the rail roads India still uses to this day and these rail roads basically made the modern Indian economy. Before you lie please go do a masters in history.
simple, it's a garrison.
andreas agung baskoro

RIP British Empire, this was the last nail in the coffin
The first line of the Chinese national anthem is "Arise, all ye who refuse to be sl ves."
Whether under Chinese or British rule, I want to visit Hong Kong
A funeral for the British Empire
The day 100 years of Chinese humiliation ended. Some still salty about it lol.
China is not Argentine. China has nuclear weapons and Britain could not afford a war with China
Ahmed sheikh they actually can, britain has nuclear weaponry too, plus it would probably get support from other nationa
Sure if you guys want nuclear annihilation rather than give an island back to its rightful owners
