Well, now that America has squandered every bit of moral high ground it ever pretended to occupy, it's the best possible time to turn the Harmony levers up to 11.

I feel bad for Hong Kong, but sadly by the time we have an administration that would even want to stop China, their hold will be solid.

Let's just hope to Christ that China stops with Hong Kong.  Opportunities like Trump don't come along for a totalitarian government every day, you know.

Trump just demonstrated his admiration for China tactics; they're not the least bit worried about us even writing a letter.

pretty sure they only want hk and a neutral/friendly taiwan and not to be banned from trade.
now of course trump will try to do a freaking economic embargo thing / cold war forcing them to break the bloccade and those who joined it.

so ya action reaction, could have stayed neutral/ friendly or make a ennemy.

What the fark do you think is happening right here ,subby?

Who's going to stop them? They have no equal power anywhere in the world anymore. They can do whatever they want without fear of repercussions.

This is what the world looks like when you put "America first" by making America stand alone. If you don't lead by example, you don't lead at all.

Not Tiananmen Square, that's for sure.

Remember when a person stood in front of a line of tanks and the tanks didn't try to run him over. That was a brutal Government.
Where does that rank the U.S.?

Actually, I think you're missing the part of the story that happened AFTER the photo.
The part where hundreds of students dies and the rest were imprisoned and people were forbidden to discuss it to this day.
Try posting something about it on Wechat.

It makes me deeply sad that the world will just let them.  They'll wag their fingers and write their memos, and they'll do nothing, and the people of Hong Kong will suffer.

I hate this planet.  I hate that nothing ever seems to get better.

in a recent interview with an eye witness who wished to remain anonymous confirmed that the only reason they didn't run him over is because China requires the tank crew to clean the vehicle.

Isn't there a little Tiananmen at Epcot too? Let's go!

Not Tiananmen Square, that's for sure.


Not yet...

Don't forget that the protests started in Tiananmen Square in April, whereas the tanks rolled in on June 4th.

The protests in America have only just begun.

And Trump is already mulling using the Insurrection Act, which will allow him to deploy the US military within the USA.

But I don't think anyone here is comparing the Tiananmen Square massacre to the civil unrest in the USA right now.

Uh yeah, because the government in the U.S. doesn't engage in mass murder, torture and imprisonment for political expression, no matter how much you desperately want to fantasize, conflate, and lie about what is actually happening in the U.S. vs. China,

So we need to make the NYPD clean their SUVs?  Who knew?

I'm guessing they want to focus their efforts on the upcoming reenactment.

Subby you might want to get yourself checked out for that Covid. You got a bad cough.

The world doesn't stand or fall on the US.
