"Officers armed with pepper spray and swinging batons confronted the protesters who used luggage carts to barricade entrances to the airport terminal."

This is day 2 of this happening. Every time I check on the protests they seem to be escalating. China might roll in some troops to keep this from spreading further.

People in HK are going to find out the people supporting them are the same
ones who supported and freed the people of Tibet.

...and the Chinese military is moving towards Hong Kong.

In a perfect world NATO jets would be landing in that shut down Hong Kong airport as we speak.

Those people are going to be slaughtered.

Tienanmen 2.0. The Chinese people need to rise up and fight for their freedom.

And fight them with what no person is aloud to have firearms or ammunition.


Seriously though this has been brewing for about a month. Everyday seems to escalate a little bit more. This is a situation that kind of has been creeping towards a serious confrontation.

Do you think England might do something. It's been only 20 years sense they gave up Hong Kong per what ever treaty from 100 years ago.

The agreement signed in 1997 was for 50 years. Just looked it up.

The west should band together immediately and side with Hong Kong.

Give China an inch they'll take a mile.

I'm pretty sure we are all just going to sit and watch a slaughter on the nightly news though.

If China breaks the agreement, could the case be made to return Hong Kong to the Brits? PDT_Armataz_01_06

No. The UK ceded sovereignty over to Hong Kong with the handover in 1997 so they have no legal claim anymore other than sentimentality which doesn't count.

If anything a better case would be to have it gain full independence like Singapore is.

If the US is right and the Commies are massing troops at the border this whole scenario has the potential to make Tienanmen Square look like a Girl Scout Jamboree.

And what's worse is that all the Chinese gov't had to do was take the extradition bill off the table....................for now. But it seems that they're spoiling for a fight which is going to come alot sooner than some people think. And then, when the blood is washed from the streets, the bodies removed, and the damaged buildings fixed they'll be able implement the same freedoms the mainlanders have enjoyed for decades.

The Hong Kong residents don't consider themselves Chinese to them, they're British and it's become even more apparent that they're willing to spill their blood to keep the freedoms that Empire bestowed on them.


If the Chinese military and police move into Hong Kong they've broken the 1984 Sino British Joint Declaration that ensured Hong Kong Autonomy till 2047 which means they should be dragged before a court in the Hague and Xi tried for invading a sovereign nation. Not that it will ever happen. :evil:

The Chinese gov't already did this...for now.
So now it seems another group is agitating something something.

It won't matter, have to chuckle at the ones suggesting that NATO
gets involved (didn't know HK was a NATO member),or suggesting the HKers
could win a fight back.

When HK was given back in 1997, HK was about 25% of the total Chinese economy.
So they kept some freedoms, because it was good business.
Now it is 2, maybe 3%|.

They will find out the hard way... no one is coming.

"If"? I'm pretty sure China doesn't give two shits about its agreements.

And what are 'near terrorist acts' anyway, other than justification to Chinese Citizens for the coming military action in HK?
