Not exactly surprising I guess. Thanks for sharing that CB.

'16 Phantom Black SS (The awesome DD) - ~ 11k miles at the moment, auto, sunroof, full-size spare. Just a couple of mild cosmetic mods so far.
'89 Trans Am GTA (The NEVER-ending swap project!) - Forged bottom-end 6.2L, built T56, Ford 9", Baer brakes, etc... Eventually hope to run road-course, open-road & standing mile events with it - if I can ever get it completed...

What a surprise. Not.
So much for the 50 years that China promised to the UK of remaining a democratic enclave in the Peopleís Republic. Donít be surprised if mainland China is Ďaskedí for help from Hong Kong to quell this.

Tiananmen II?

Hong Kong doesn't ask; those in power are controlled by China and will do whatever they are told. China is loosing patience and will just mop 'em up if they escalate or don't calm down soon.

Just like Taiwan. China has publicly said they will invade and start a war if they attempt to declare independence.

China has gotten to big for their britches. That is why I fully support the "trade war". The $$$ we pay now with the tariffs is a lot cheaper than the cost of military action.

My thinking is that the puppet government in Hong Kong will Ďaskí for help from the PRC so that Hong Kong maintains some ability to save face in the world.

Kind of like Vichy France was independent of Nazi Germany. No one believed that lie either.
