President Trump could also issue a statement on behalf of the protesters. He hasnt, we havent either. And if there is bloodshed on a large scale, that may be regarded as a fatal mistake.
If they DO massacre protesters, we need to shut down on all Chinese imports. Both for the good of our economy, and also to make them realise we dont reward mass murder. Which unfortunately, as a rule, we usually do. So, ive no confidence this will be the case.
On social media the Area 51 raid was going to be massive. When it came time for all the social media warriors to put their money where their mouths are and show up on the ground, 99.9% of them proved to be talkers and didn't arrive. What a debacle.
Global support for Hong Kong is the same thing. Nobu will talk the talk from a distance, but never actually go to Hong Kong to help. As the great Gerad Way once said, everybody wants to change the world, but no one wants to die. So the Chinese don't need to massacre anyone, because its all a bunch of talk signifying nothing. Just arrest the leaders, deport them to the mainland and start dishing out the prison sentences. They'd prefer not to do that because the protestors are losing ground even in Hong Kong. (The protests are economically disruptive and politically useless, and the protestors are young and rich, so will have the usual leftist revolutionary motives lurking in the background).
