Beijing has accused the U.S. of working with so-called separatists in Hong Kong and Taiwan to undermine China and plunge it into chaos.

In a video posted online by the Chinese Supreme People’s Procuratorate, apocalyptic images of Syria and Iraq are contrasted with bucolic views of China today.

“The haze of ‘domestic and international concerns’ has not dispersed from the Chinese sky,” the video says.

“Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Taiwan separatism, as well as dissident leaders, lawyers who would fight until death and other agents of Western forces are damaging China’s internal stability and harmony. Behind all these incidents, we can often catch a glimpse of the dark shadow of the Stars and Stripes.”

‘Stay alert’

In a post on Weibo, the Procuratorate urged people to “stay alert for color revolutions” or see “peaceful and stable China” become like Syria or Iraq.

A warning against independence movements in Taiwan and Hong Kong is overlaid on photos of Joshua Wong — a leading Hong Kong pro-democracy campaigner and founder of Demosisto — and Taiwanese President Tsai Ying-wen.
