    China doesn't take large protests lightly. If push comes to shove, Hong Kong is going to lose unfortunately.

    Gee I'm totally expecting the Chinese government and their acolytes to not act like greedy mobster pimps and arrest/beat/kill a bunch of ordinary people with guns and tanks and stuff and then blame it on Amerikan imperialists, because that never happens and they really care about the well-being of Hong Kong's everyday citizens.

    They've openly reaffirmed their commitment to one China two tyrannies, so we can all sleep easy now.

    Anyone remember when China stepped in to stabilize the Hang Seng 22 to 16 years ago?

    im against riots in general
    peaceful protests showing democratic will by mass peaceful protest seems like quite a difference from rioting.


    what is confusing is china banning individual travel to Taiwan
