Hong Kong, as an independent government, is officially over. Anyone who wants to get out, should get out. Now.

Hope the people of Hong Kong remember history.  Just like the years between WWI and WWII when the Jews tried to hang on thinking it couldn't get worse, Hong Kong should immediately start funnelling their people anywhere and everywhere.  And ship anything not nailed down as well.

If the communist Chinese want to act like locusts, leave nothing for them.

bluewave69: how as it worked for tibet ? they have no power inside Tibet proper anymore and they don't get new refugee's.
Dharamshala is pretty much a dump compared to 2020 Lhasa.


"Africa was such a dump before Europe came in and built infrastructure!" says the Beijing shill.

Agreed. The dynamics favor repeated future conflicts, and China has decided that it can live without leeching off of a thriving Hong Kong economy. That means that they will be unflinching in their oppressive reflexes and every person that harbors any interest in freedom becomes a target.

I hope they raid the hidden accounts that communist leaders use to shelter their ill-begotten gains before skipping town. If nothing else at least pull back the privacy curtains so people in China can see how much they are being grifted.

Advernaut: This is like watching a little kid insist on still wearing their footsie pj's even though the sleeves only reach to their elbows and the feet have holes in them. Sure, they can still wear it but it's only a matter of time before mother takes it away. You're part of fuqing China whether you like it or not; it's going to happen.


Tell that to Taiwan.

Though it might not be wise to be so geographically close and consolidating people that China would love to oppress.

Sorry, but they should have been out before the handover


In the 90s and 00s people thought treaties mattered.

Russia attacks Ukraine and the US supports Russia -- Guess that whole give up nukes thing was stupid

US drops out of treaty with Iran -- Iran should never have trusted the US and will probably push for the bomb asap

China fully takes over Hong Kong, nothing from the US and very little from the UK -- They should have protested before the handover

Yes, you are right. However, I don't think we expected such a weak United States and aimless corrupt "free world" when the treaties were signed.

That was my first thought.

The Republic of China would LOVE to welcome Taiwan as their newest province.

. . .and the PRC would be so pissed, and wonderfully so.

Hmmmmm..I wonder where they could do that?

Well, Trump wants a favor from Xi so there was never any threat of USA retaliations.
