Jul.30 -- The White House says it is monitoring what it calls a “congregation of Chinese forces on the border with Hong Kong.” Weeks of unrest in the city threaten to overwhelm the government and it’s taking its toll on the economy. China says the demonstrations have gone “far beyond what it sees as a peaceful protest.” Bloomberg’s Stephen Engle reports on “Bloomberg Markets: China Open.”




White House Official Says Chinese Forces Are on Hong Kong’s Border




Mainland China will never let Hong Kong go. The Hong Kong people enjoy the freedoms they currently have and some are in fear they will lose that. What type on effect will 2047 have on the population, when the UK and China agreement expires and Hong Hong joins Mainland China?

From now until the switch in 2047 will not matter. Large protests will occur and the Chinese government is beginning to notice that.

China seems to be making noises that suggest they won't wait until 2047 if they think they can get away with it.

The red dragon has become increasingly more aggressive in the last few years. Did they start their puffery a little too early? Maybe, maybe not.

They're a pretty good example of what the NWO will look like though...

That headline is kinda like saying “US military masses on border with California”
This mess started because of the west taking Hong Kong from the Chinese so we could sell them opium.
If any of you out there think for 1 second that any western gov gives 2 shytes about the people of Hong Kong you need to pull your heads out your ass, the USAs interest is about money and other purely selfish reasons

The west needs to stay out of this

Of course they are. Hong Kong is part of China. No longer part of England. Hate to say it, but that is the real real. Sorry Hong Kong, you guys dont deserve this.

What stuck me was the line that forces are amassing on the boarder. Isn't HK an island?

Part of it is, but not all. And there are bridges connecting the island to the mainland.

A lot like NYC, really.

I'm sure China is looking forward to ending Hong Kong's semi-autonomous status. It's only a question of how soon.

It seems that legally Hong Kong is autonomous and it's own entity separate from China although China does have some power in interpreting that law.

This is probably a dispute the United Nations should be involved in mediating, as they were formed specifically to address issues like this and to resolve them amicably and peacefully.

For more info, check out : This wiki page


The Basic Law ensured Hong Kong will retain its capitalist economic system and own currency (the Hong Kong Dollar), legal system, legislative system, and people's rights and freedom for fifty years, as a special administrative region (SAR) of China. Set to expire in 2047, the current arrangement has permitted Hong Kong to function as its own entity in many international settings (e.g., WTO and the Olympics) rather than as a part of China.[1][2][3]

The Chinese renminbi is not legal tender in Hong Kong. Likewise, the Hong Kong Dollar is not accepted in stores in China. With this arrangement, a permit or visa is required when passing between the borders of Hong Kong and China, and people in Hong Kong generally hold Hong Kong SAR passports rather than Chinese passports.

Google "Hong Kong skyline" and look at how breathtakingly beautiful the city is, especially at night or sunrise/sunset.

I have always wanted to visit this amazing city but they really need to resolve their crisis before I'd even consider going. I also need to get a bunch of money because it certainly won't be cheap!

Reminds me of something I heard about from folks who raise chickens, if the chickens are raised in and used to a larger coup, and you have to move them to a smaller coup, then when/if put in a smaller coup they get crazy, loud, violent, its like humans, given freedoms, you can't then later remove the freedoms, ya can't go backwards.... IMHO China should not ever try to go against nature. I guess the next 30 years will tell. What is that old statement?
"Time and tide wait for no man."
China should heed that reality. Could you imagine how awesome a free china could be? if they choose to fight the tide they are doomed. If they go with the flow of freedom they will run the planet next century. Free Hong Kong!! lol.

We, the USA, have no business getting involved in this. It's England's place to intervene if they wish. In fact, England should give HK citizens an opportunity to move to the UK since they're the ones that took HK in the first place, westernized it and gave it back.

Hong Kong will become part of China whether the people like it or not.

The UK didn't " take " HK.

It was " leased " from China for 99 years. It was handed back when the lease expired.

Not hard to fine the real facts if you look.

An unimaginable fight ahead for Hong Konggers

I can’t see them gaining independence without international help which I don’t think is going to happen for fear of triggering a much larger conflict, a huge loss of life maybe ahead for Hong Kong should they pursue this path, not sure what the answer is only to continue to weaken the monster the globalist multinationals have created through greed

Nobody is gonna go to war over Hong Kong.

In fact, I submit that if PRC simply wanted to "take" Hong Kong tomorrow, it could do so.

It's the ROC that China can't just simply "take" (and probably never will be able to).

Nobody is saving Hong Kong from the Chinese behemoth.

Taiwan, on the other hand, is a completely different question...

I don't think the US or the UK will lift a finger if the mainland decides to "take" Hong Kong any day from now.

It's Taiwan that will be a big fight for the PRC. No simple striding in there...

There's not really much the UK or US could do. China has a looooong history of repression and crap human rights, so grinding Hong Kong into the mud would how the Chinese dictatorship typically deals with people who express a contrary view.

China may well have a "loooooong history of repression and crap human rights", but the most the "International Community" will do is mumble something in protest and make a barely audible remonstration. You'll never see any embargoes, no-fly zones or punitive actions of any kind by "our Great West"...

China should probably just take Hong Kong if it really wants to. Nobody'll stop it.


EDIT: The recent issues regarding Huawei for instance were more to do with national security concerns as opposed to a "protest" against poor human rights, if you understand what I mean...

2047? China broke the agreement starting day 1, and will certainly not wait until 2047.
