Hong Kong Is Dead

Post by psk836 » Tue Apr 21, 2020 11:10 am

While the world has been sheltering in place China has been rolling up and arresting all the leaders of the Hong Kong protest movement. One country two systems is now dead as China is asserting its authority to rule Hong Kong however it sees fit.

Do not think of this as a one off for China as it maneuvers to take maximum advantage of the pandemic it unleashed on the world. China is actively seeking to purchase US biomedical companies facing financial difficulties because of pandemic to strip them of their technology before closing down their US operations (as they have done with other technology companies in the past) to monopolize another tech sector industry. Same thing throughout Italy, Great Britain and elsewhere in Europe. African nations struggling with pandemic that have asked for Belt and Road (Chinese infrastructure "investments") debt relief have been told there will be none granted. Collateral for these "investments" are African ports, airports, etc...

China is at economic war with the world, and it is using Chinese Coronavirus to play to win.

China has also been testing Taiwan's defense systems in the past several weeks, sending the Chinese Navy in close proximity to the island and doing air force flybys. China's is "taking care of family business" first with Hong Kong and Taiwan, figuring the US is at its weakest and most distracted point right now. But it is only the beginning.

We are at war and we had better start to focus.

"The carrier Liaoning, accompanied by two destroyers, two frigates and a combat support ship, was spotted by Japan as it passed through the Miyako Strait on Saturday evening

The carrier is the only ship of its kind still operational in the region after USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Ronald Reagan were forced to dock after crew were hit by Covid-19."

"As tensions continue to simmer between Beijing and Taipei, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has increased its activities around the self-ruled island, which the mainland regards as part of its territory awaiting reunification.

On Thursday, an H-6 bomber, J-11 fighter and KJ-500 reconnaissance plane from the PLA Air Force flew over southwestern Taiwan and on to the western Pacific where they followed a US RC-135U electronic reconnaissance aircraft."

China is getting away with it because of Trump's weakness.

I'm sorry but that is frustratingly idiotic.

Frankly China is "getting away with it" because half the fugging country can't get over losing an election three years ago.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/0 ... hong-kong/

"The former governor of Hong Kong has accused Chinese government of “burying” the one country two systems arrangement after the founding fathers of the region’s democracy movement were arrested.

Fourteen activists were held yesterday in the single largest crackdown since 1.7 million people took to the streets last year demanding reform.

The arrests took place just hours after China’s top representative office declared it is not bound by Hong Kong’s constitutional restrictions preventing the Chinese government from interfering in local affairs.

Campaigners say China is using the coronavirus crisis to reimpose strict control and undermine basic human rights and freedoms in Hong Kong."

1) We've had close elections before.

2) Trump sets policy.

More "family business".

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020 ... locations/

"On Sunday, China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs and Ministry of Natural Resources released “standard” names for 80 geographical features in the South China Sea, in an act “reaffirming China’s sovereignty in the region,” Chinese state media reported on Monday.

China bestowed names on 25 islands, shoals, and reefs, as well as 55 undersea entities, such as oceanic mountains and ridges, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) said on Monday. China last made such a decree in 1983, naming 287 geographic features in the South China Sea, a hotly contested territory claimed, in part, by most Southeast Asian nations and almost entirely by China.

The “standard” names declaration was made one day after China’s State Council said it had set up two new administrative districts, “Xisha and Nansha,” to govern the Paracel and Spratly island chains in the South China Sea. The Spratly Islands are the Philippines’ sovereign territory, while the Paracel Islands belong to Vietnam. Nevertheless, China unlawfully claims both island chains and nearly all of the South China Sea.

According to China, the new administrative districts were established as part of a “normal move for better scientific management and to safeguard territorial sovereignty.” The announcement comes in direct response to recent activity by United States warships and aircraft in the South China Sea, itself a reaction to China’s increased aggression in the disputed territory over the past few months."

You guys better pull your heads out of your asses pretty quick. China sees YOU as a resource to exploit just as surely as it does Chinese Coronavirus (frankly I think China has you pegged).
