    My 8th grader is doing a story of emerging Democracies. Hong Kong is a great example how to do as many wrong things as right.

    SHe turns it in tomorrow and will end with the Chinese deployment of troops.

    The Chinese government won’t put up with much more.

    This is not an emerging democracy. Hong Kong IS China, and they are attempting a civil war.

    It will fail.

    China isn't stupid....they know this isn't 1989 anymore. They know that if they start killing people en-mass, the international community is going to do something about it.

    Realistically, the West holds all the cards here. If China starts mass killings, it's not going to end well for them.

    Mass killings of peasants in the Middle East is one thing....murdering people on the streets of a major modern economic powerhouse city is another thing entirely.

    Well, as Swallwell, said "we've got nukes!" I think he expresses a sentiment of a substantial portion of the Democratic party and it's base. A great many of them would like to turn Trump supporters into soap.

    Yep! Just like in Afghanistan where a bunch of villagers with worn-out clothes, sandals, and old AK's wasn't able to tie up the single greatest Army the world has ever seen for over 18 years.

    Im watching China closely because that’s where the next big one will come from. It hasn’t been widely reported but they have been playing chicken with USN warships in the South China Sea.

    Recently a PLAN honcho has been advocating ramming 2 ships on one in the Chinese media. I think this conflict is only a matter of time. You don’t have to be a globalist to understand the importance of that maritime route.

    I think they will use such a distraction to stomp on Hong Kong. While are Dummykrats have America wrapped up in a coup attempt and if they win they will eviscerate the military per their historical record.

    I’ve been traveling to and working in China off and on since 1987. The government will not put up with this Hong Kong uprising much longer. You can rest assured that Hong Kong, which IS China for those of you not paying attention, will not function with any sort of autonomy.

    That's nothing for the children of Mao.

    Chairman Mao murdered many millions more than Hitler and Stalin.

    Another Color Revolution.

    That’s not to say they didn’t have real issues - an oppressive Communist regime that would like to... oppress.

    But it a an opportunity to do much damage and it’s being used as just that.

    Well the Dems pushes a bill essentially opening up military options if China smashes the terrorists amongst the protesters.

    That’s about as provocative and stupid a thing to do in my estimation.

    In no way do we remain unscathed here at home in a war against China. Their Sunburn missiles will eviscerate our navy which will give cause for ICBMs. Oh, China has subs as well. None of us would benefit AT ALL.

    But I’m sure there are millions who will get an erection at the thought of fighting China.
