    Imagine if the US military treated Taliban insurgents with the same kind of restraint the HKPF treat these terrorists!

    "Images circulated on Monday of what appeared to be a gas canister bomb embedded with shrapnel to be used against police trying to clear students out of Hong Kong PolyU"

    Students under siege: Riot police fire tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters trying to break out of Hong Kong university after worst night of violence saw petrol bombs hurled at officers, building set ablaze and home-made gas canister bombs spotted
    • Hong Kong police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters trying to leave Hong Kong university Monday
    • Dozens were arrested as they tried to flee, despite earlier reports of a truce to allow activists out of campus
    • Comes after the worst night of violence in almost six months of protests, with fire bombs and arrows used
    • Police warned for the first time that live ammunition could be used on activists amid fears of major bloodshed

    here's what matters:
    China has the ‘resolution and power’ to end Hong Kong unrest amid protests, says ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming
    • Diplomat says central government will not ‘sit on its hands and watch’ if the situation deteriorates when asked if PLA could be deployed in city
    • Liu blames protesters for unleashing ‘black terror’ and restates government’s backing for city’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam

    follow the link https://www.scmp.com/news/china/dip...esolution-and-power-end-hong-kong-unrest-says if interested, careful as there're also "camps" inside

    Looks like China should declare any individual or group or company assisting, selling, financing any products to these rioters/terrorists as associated with terrorism. Give them the ability to freeze financial assets in china and ask interpol for arrest if outside. If any country doesn't agree, then put the terrorist supporter hat on them and get some global naming and shaming.

    I was watching a tv report this morning where they were talking to a student during the siege at the university and he was crying wondering why the US and Australian military haven't come to rescue them. Look at this delusional child like thinking from a college student.

    Just empty words unless you got the big stick to back them up. Otherwise you just end up looking weak only able to protest without being able to take punitive action.

    That’s the dilemma Beijing faces.

    I am sure Chinese state security and counter intelligence would have plenty of evidence of direct US involvement in the HK riots at a fundamental level.

    Publicising such evidence might embarrass the US a little, but what would that achieve?

    Most of the brainwashed sheeple in the west would automatically chalk it up as fake news, and anyone inclined would give such news an objective look would probably not be surprised that the US organised the whole thing to start with. And have you see Trump? The man is embarrassment proof.

    OTOH, having all these evidence out in the open would massively rile up the Chinese public, who’s anger could easily turn against Beijing if the government is seen as not being able to do anything about such blatant violations of Chinese sovereignty.

    These people are the same type as FLG and probably has a significant portion that is FLG.

    How did we deal with FLG? Censorship?

    It's my understanding that China can step into the HK mess only if requested to by the govt of HK.I cant see such a request coming from a Pan Democracy coalition govt.
