Message Subject BREAKING! Situation out of control in Hong Kong!

I admire the people of Hong Kong. Too bad they are screwed.

There is nothing anyone can do to protect the very small rights remaining to them from being trampled on by the PLA and its servants in local government.

This end has been very predictable since 1949. The USA cutoff military aid to "nationalist China" allowing Mao to win the civil war. Of course, the USSR did not balk at continuing aid to Mao--on top of handing the whole of the undamaged Imperial Japanese Army industries in Manchuria to the communist in 1945.

I am quite certain that some Americans called our policy of abandonment irresponsible and even treasonous. The future is always a bit of a guessing game, but such things as the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the destruction of Tibet and worse would certainly happen.

Nip it in the bud. Pouring fertilizer and honey on a poisonous weed is satanic--or just plain ignorant as to how things actually work.

BTW, the return of Hong Kong to whatever China happened to be around was a forgone conclusion a hundred years ago. It is a bit of a stretch to have anticipated any scenario that would have put the UK at war with China over Hong Kong. The place was basically stolen and a lease agreement (for 100 years) was handed to China--while it was at its weakest.
