… trigger historic rupture with US.

"A military operation against Hong Kong protesters could trigger a rupture in U.S.-China relations that makes the trade war look minor in comparison, U.S. lawmakers and analysts suggest.

"If Beijing cracked down on Hong Kong, it would require a fundamental reassessment of our relations with their country, the kind that should have happened after Tiananmen Square," Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday…"

Things were looking rather tense there last night.

Haven't seen what happened today, but it looks like Xi and Beijing plan to weigh in with a heavy hand again.

I certainly hope I'm wrong.

If they do, Xi and the communists need to pay a very heavy price for their actions.

Hong Kong is in China. A revolt in the city is unlawful and should be quelled with the force needed. The protestors are greedy people looking to enhance their own wealth. Should the USA do anything? In my opinion no. Should the British…maybe. But it would not help the outcome.
The Chinese military will not allow another incident like T. Square where the protestors burned soldiers alive in their trucks and BRDMs.

When Hong Kong was returned to China, China signed a treaty guarantying autonomy for Hong Kong. Do you think it possible that Red China can't be trusted?

An agreement or treaty is only good if it can be informed. Britain cannot enforce the terms. So China will impose law there.

America and Americans should stand up for, and back anyone and everyone around the globe aspiring to gain freedom and democracy from oppressive, communist and/or socialist leaders.

Doesn't mean we have to get involved directly, but they should at least have our moral support, and even a total embargo on ALL trade with China, if they create a Tiananmen II crisis, which is looking more likely, daily.

Perhaps asylum too, for those highly industrious citizens looking for a better life.

Total Embargo for ALL trade with China?… you sunk the World Economy with that…

I'd rather sink the world economy than allow more and more of the world to slip into totalitarianism. Liberty is worth any price.
