The obvious answer there is Taiwan which is where America and the rest will step up i imagine.

I think it will be fine as long as the Chinese forces return back to Shenzhen..

if they remain, it will never settle.

I dont think China wants to go in, I think they understand the long term ramifications if they move into Hong Kong and starting beating people up.

They're putting a lot of pressure onto the Hong Kong officials to get nasty and end the protests now

China learnt from the visible repression displayed with the Tiananmen Square massacre, and the long term problems with China's reputation that has caused, even though the massacre has been effectively scrubbed from the memory of the domestic Chinese due to censorship and political persecution.

On Hong Kong, China just need to let the protests calm down and the spotlight shift elsewhere. Then all the protestors will be hoovered up and many will just disappear, just like the aftermath of Tiananmen Square. As China have branded the protestors as terrorists, we can see what will happen to them.

What the Chinese dictatorship does not want, and will not tolerate, are people not wanting to live under their repression.

The rest of the world won't know, and will ignore the human rights violations, just as they are ignoring the Chinese concentration camps which house a million Uighur Muslims who are being “re-educated”.

Advice – stop buying from China.

I did years ago Paraphi, indeed evry item in the shops goes through a full scrutiny before being purchased, much to her indoors amusement. The Chinese are a awful lot u nder the Commie regime and they don't play it fair economics wise so you give good advice there, just don't buy from them. At least the Japanese played it semi fair during their industrial rise, plus made products that were on par with ours indeed often better indeed much better, don't see that from the Chinese.

On their Muslim front surely that is a perfect opportunity to bring down the regime. They occupy a ggood part of Kashmir, surely this can be tweeked into bringing down the regime by infiltrating it with Islamo 'mujahoodin' type radicals with outside support through weapons supplies like Stingers. Worked with the Soviets through similar meddling with Afghans maybe the same again to topple another Commie regime

there's nothing anybody can really do about it.

Can't never could.
I say we rain Wal-Marts from the sky on their buck-toothed, slant-eyed asses if they don't back off.
Call me old-fashioned.


hate to tell you, but China has had Wal-marts since the mid 1990's.

well the Hong Kongers shouldn't expect any help from Canada with Trudeau the commie, and dictatorship lover in charge.

Hong Kong does belong to china, doesn't it?
Would the usa be excited about others telling us how to handle puerto rico?





It isn't quite apples to apples....

Hong Kong has been autonomous from China and was only "handed over to them" in 1997 after being a British Colony for like 125 years. Hong Kong was largely "free" like any other western society, so being under China's commie thumb is not really something I think most people in Hong Kong have ever wanted hence the protests.

The US is in a precarious position because Hong Kong is a major financial hub. On the one hand, we benefit from them being largely capitalistic. On the other hand, are they worth going to war over. Probably not.

Part of me thinks these riots in Hong Kong are actually designed to make Trump blink on the tariffs to avoid having to go to war with China. So China is losing the tariff war. The only way they can get Trump to backoff is to cause havoc in Hong Kong knowing Trump will not want armed conflict and may backoff on tariffs if China, backs off on Hong Kong...

The one single most incorrect post today
There was a brief time , after the opium wars , that it was "ceded" to the British (never was a "colony" though)
Hong Kong was China (214 BCE )until the British leased it in 1898 .
That is why 92% of the population is Han Chinese and , most of which are Chinese nationals.
The lease was for 99 years and expired in 1997 .


The British were never democratic (or a semblance of it) towards Hong Kong until almost the end of their tenancy of Hong Kong and China was stupid to accede to their demand and hence these troubles.

heres the thing about that. they have to have GPS guidance. If we Attack them their GPS sats will be destroyed before hand.
Also they look just like Nuclear missile launches so..... that would spark WW3 nuclear exchanges.

the west will probably sanction them again like after tiananmen square happened, possibly even America sending weapons and training people in gorilla warfare and sabotage, to create a full on rebellion against Chinese rule.


That is just instant WW3. If the west stays out, I'm pretty sure no one will be complaining, saying its China territory. WW1 and WW2 all began after an invasion of China.

Like it or not, we live in a "global" economy. Unless you own your property outright, grow your own food, and use only animal transportation, you are a part of the Global economy. China is the world's second largest economy. Their military is not hamstrung by news organizations, handwringers, or large, organized anti-government types.
Whatever China does in HK, Taiwan, or their Western provinces, it will affect you.

strongly worded letter, and then hope for something else to happen to distract the masses.

I weep for what is going to occur there, but I also dont think China realizes what is in store for them down there, from what I have heard on NPR many of these folks have decided that its do or die time, China will get control of Hong kong no doubt but it may literally be over a mountain of corpses.

Chinese been through worst. Way worst than this crappy protest. The biggest threat doesn't even begin with Earth. Why you think Mars is a desert?
