Cheezy

Back in the 1967 Cultural Revolution riots the Triads sides with the United Front (Beijing linked forces). Actually going back to the Korean War it was Triads who were breaking the export embargo on China.

Triads have long been in bed with the CCP

Re: Army moving into Hong Kong
Why would the triads oppose the protestors? Do they expect a better life under the CCP?

wh67 - a lot of the white shirts are either Fujianese living in HK already (many around North Point), Triads (mainly from the NT), Macanese Triads ferried in, Fujianese thugs who've been brought in and some Guangdong Triads brought in.

Never been to HK . When there was no direct flight to Bangkok I used to via HK and spend a fortune in duty free after spending 2 months in the land that time forgot

The PLA in white shirts beating up the protesters was likely to be them before ?

Re: Army moving into Hong Kong
General feeling is that neither the People's Liberation Army, nor the People's Armed Police will be deployed directly. Doing so would prompt sanctions on HK affecting the crony establishment bootlickers.

Thing is a particularly nasty piece of work called Junius Ho seems to be trying to stir things up as part of a strategy of tension to justify the Emergency Regulations Ordinance. Junius is the guy who falsely claimed to be admitted to practice law in England, Wales & Singapore; whose initial election to LegCo was "interesting":
1. A rival pro-establishment candidate fled the election
2. He's the guy implicated in the Yuen Long attack on 21 July. (Note: there is a murky interplay between rural committees, Heung Yee Kuk and gangsters in many parts of the New Territories,, with Yuen Long being very much one such area)
3. He also called for all pro-democracy/ pro-reform figures to be "killed without mercy"

And late last week he called for a "clean up HK" campaign, i.e. basically calling for attacks on protestors.

There won't be any easing off of the protests any time soon.

After Occupy folded in 2014, rather than offering any concessions, Government basically doubled-down against those seeking reform/ democracy, with the selective & arbitrary disqualifications of pro-democracy candidates. As such, there is absolutely no reason for protestors to cease protests unless and until there are substantially greater concessions granted by Government (be it Tamar or Zhongnanhai)

Branded, East Timor is an example of a culture that’s so foreign to the bigger country that they split off. Likewise South Sudan.

China’s facing major demographic problems in the next few decades. Because of the one-child policy, their population is going to start going backwards in the next few years, possibly creating a Japanese-style zombie economy, but at a much lower level of development. If that happens, the country could start coming apart at the seams.

It’s certainly happened before.

Re: Army moving into Hong Kong
Send in the troops to a pointless conflict on the other side of the world so that people who like killing foreigners will switch back to the Tories.

Was it a similar basis that Australia deployed troops to Vietnam and kept them there for the best part of 10 years?

Semi-serious question. If in coming decades the central government in China began to lose control and Hong Kong wanted back into Britain, how many people would accept it as a British Overseas Territory with voting rights and MPs?

Re: Army moving into Hong Kong
Maybe the EU should "make overtures" to Hong Kong? Sorted the Ukraine out, so no reason why it won't work here, either.

Failing that, send Bono in.
