China considers use of military force in Hong Kong

China’s leadership does no longer exclude the use of military force to strike down the protests in Hong Kong, said Yang Guang, speaker for the inherited cantons of Hong Kong and Macao. He warned the protesters should not underestimate the power of China’s central government.

  • The use of extreme violence to put down and deter protesters will always be prevalent in Countries where life is cheap and the whole of the legal process unaccountable.

    This is definitely not going to be another Tiananmen square.
    The stock market would likely crash, followed by the housing marketing. A mass exodus could follow.
    China’s economy is already vulnerable due to the trade war with the U.S.
    Hong Kong’s special status has massively benefited the Chinese economy. It gives the country a way to accept huge investment and commerce from international companies without completely opening its market.

    In 2016, 61% of China’s foreign direct investment, or 82 billion came through Hong Kong.

        China has so far emphasized that the Hong Kong authorities should handle this on their own, while giving them the same signal that Brezhnev offered Polish leaders in 1981 about the capital being ready to add direct support in a last resort.
        Hong Kong authorities are likely to declare martial law, deploy their police forces with greater brutality, arrest the protest ringleaders, grant a new round of cosmetic concessions, and hunker down until the crisis passes. The problem with this solution, in the minds of Beijing’s leaders, is that in Poland, it failed spectacularly.

  • The problem there is the Chinese guvment has no boundaries to keep them honest. If caught with their pants down they will do essentially the same as Pootlerstan; deny and point the finger elsewhere. The thing here is people die.

    Are the Chinese learning from Putler or is it the other way around?

    • I can not say on that. Being Canadian and the controversy with the Huawei executive arrested and waiting deportation to the US, I would not consider travel to China. The same I would not consider travel to the Russia or Belarus right now. They both follow the same lack of respect for rules based society and government. Neither country respects Intellectual Property Rights.
