Does anyone here think having a US style armed populace in Hong Kong start to light up the security forces there would actually end well? There's a place for self-serving fantasy, but I don't think playing Red Dawn in a city of 7 million people has a lot to commend it.
I'm confused. How is laying down and taking it as a dissident in a nation where they divide people up for spare body parts a good ending?
The ONLY way for it to end well for you PERSONALLY is to acquiesce to what the Chinese Government decides is proper to do and hope you're not part of the main stream of sending people off to gulags.
If your choice is fight and die, fight with guns, take some with you and die or be part of the moloch like machine, why is fighting with guns and dying considered bad?
True, the People of Hong Kong fighting the PRC police and government forces would be awful. A full on turn all the local shops into gun manufactures and fight with arms there in the streets would be bloody. BUT, what's in it for the Chinese if they destroy Hong Kong in doing so. It's a game of chicken. Hong Kong is MOST useful if it can make money. If it's destroyed in the process of an armed insurrection, how is that a win for the government?
