Chinese troops moving into Hong Kong

The Chinese government has begun moving troops across the Shenzhen Qianhai Guangshen Coastal Expressway Bridge into Hong Kong minutes ago, in a military operation to put down protests against the government of Beijing.
Hundreds of military trucks carrying soldiers and guns are moving at this hour across the Bridge into Hong Kong.

    Not Surprising. A few Days ago, there was an article on Zerohedge.com about that the Chicom government had Identified U.S.-connected persons involved in planning and running these Protests. CIA/USAID or ‘soros’ likely, the “Color Revolution” playbook in action.
    I’ll not be surprised if the Shooting Starts and eventually, it comes out that ‘someone’ was Shooting both at the Troops and Protesters at the same Time.
    Likely this is an extension of the “Trade Wars” thing, too.

      Not really about the Trade War. We have friends there, they have been building a bugout in the mountains for 5 or 6 years. Its been ready and used for holidays now for a couple of years but they started it because they could see this coming, the protests are not anything new either just made the news here finally. As far as the “US-Connected persons”, a statement right out of Moa’s handbook. This has been an open sore for a long time.

        This is very very embarrassing. Julie Eadeh, a US diplomat in Hong Kong, was caught meeting HK protest leaders. It would be hard to imagine the US reaction if Chinese diplomat were meeting leaders of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter or Never Trump protesters.

        – some Chicom official

        False equivalence. OWS, BLM and Never Trumpers are even bigger assholes than the official US government (which is quite the achievement of assholery, BTW). In the case of Hong Kong, the protesters are not the biggest assholes.

    Blow up the bridge. Anything else is just posturing.

    I’ve got a friend who grew up in HK. Her family fled the mainland to there, then started saving every single penny they could to immigrate to the US because they knew that HK’s time was limited.

    Pretty sure there’s some folks in Hong Kong right now who think that British Imperialism wasn’t all that bad in retrospect.

      I would wager that there are several countries that, in retrospect, would be happy to go back under the Union Jack.

      • Larry says:

        Most people in Hong Kong were fearful of coming under Chinese rule, thus the whole “One country, two systems” for 50 years program to prevent a mass exodus of people and money.

    my nephew has been working there for the last few years as a teacher with his wife and kids. I hope they are home on leave right now.

    A former employer has all their production in mainland China with access by flying to HK and then crossing over. People were going back and forth every week.

    SUCKS TO HAVE YOUR PRODUCTION OVER THERE NOW, ASSH*LES!

    On the plus side, I did get to go there last summer for a week. Mostly work but was very interesting.

    Complicated business. Many such examples.
    The “color revolution” handbook is by an American Gene Sharp, it is titled “From Dictatorship to Democracy.” See and save it from the source https://www.aeinstein.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/FDTD.pdf
    Take a look at all the revolutions over the past 2 decades or so… same model, right out of this book. Look at Ukraine. Look at the epic show that was the various Arab Spring revolutions… it is all in there.

    Anytime a gungrabber asks why you want AR-15’s, standard capacity magazines, semi-auto anything, just point to this article with your middle finger.

  9. DaveP. says:

    To the Chinese, this isn’t ‘protests for freedom’. This is “peasants in revolt”. And for over a thousand years, the Chinese have only had one real response to peasants in revolt.

    Been expecting this for 20 years, just surprised it took so long.

Play nice.
