Not sure if this is true or not, but send in the tanks just in case

Not sure if the bridges into Hong Kong would support tanks, but in any case it’s going to be tough getting across them with 500k enraged people on the other side.

It does increasingly look like Xi might be prepared to turn this into something horrific. I’ve been wondering if the handful of tariff concessions China made this morning were a bit of a negotiation: “we’ll let you go into the election cycle claiming your trade war works, and in exchange the United States government stays quiet about upcoming actions in Hong Kong.”

I don't feel too good about this one. If anyone has a better suggestion for a thread title, I'm all for it.

I can't imagine western countries doing much more than issuing a sternly worded letter. The world economy is too interconnected and dependent on Chinese manufacturing to do much more than that, and for some reason we've decided that resisting China is futile. Trump might do something more, but that's because he's crazy. I don't think Hong Kong is enough of an economic force to resist if China really decided to crack down or assimilate them, but maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.

I mean, what would we do if Hawaii decided to tell us to take our telescope and fuck off?

Quote:
According to Kitto's story, Xi was hit in the back with a chair hurled during a contentious meeting of "the red second generation." These meetings of the Communist Party old guard's elite and now-adult children, which includes Xi, come with a lot of baggage. Old rivalries, petty squabbles, and apparently fights that include flying chairs. Here's Kitto:

The meeting turned violent. They went at it hammer and sickle. Xi Jinping tried to calm them down. He put himself physically in the crossfire and unwittingly into the path of a chair as it was thrown across the room. It hit him in the back, injuring him. Hence the absence, and the silence, and the rumours.

It's a plausible story, but given its single anonymous source, probably best taken as an interesting but not yet verified account.

It's absolute horseshit if Morey suffers, professional or otherwise, for that tweet.

I'm very happy to see that there is bipartisan outrage to this.

The general spirit of the Free Speech Clause being accepted as a wide consensus is one of the better development in American politics in the last 40 years or so.
