Thread: Hong Kong / What If?

    Default Hong Kong / What If?

    What (if anything) should America and the world do if China goes in guns blazing and brutally shuts down the HK protests? Let's put death toll at the 10K-ish level.

    Dismantling the Belt and Road Initiative would be a good start.
    Hope is the denial of reality

    I think China would send a strong enough signal to the world to make certain that the kind of entanglement that comes with that project is entirely undesireable. Otherwise I don't see any direct action we could actually take. The De jure separate status of Hong Kong has become a paper kitten long time ago and with China's status in the international structure it won't even come as far as formal condemnation of whatever it chooses to do in Hongkong. I don't see tens of thousands dead in the streets though if they crush the protests. Tens of thousands in 're-education' facilities for a undefined periode, that's much more likely.
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.
