Kinda curious why the general US news media is downplaying the mass protests and arrests of the HK protesters. Even worse, POTUS doesn't mention a thing about it. Maybe everyone is still focused (understandably) on the ISIS crisis? Images coming out of Hong Kong clearly show massive protests, and equally massive deployment of Chinese state police to quell and subdue these protesters. I'm certain that hundreds have already been hospitalized (liberal use of mace, tear gas, truncheons, etc). I'm surprised the Mainland has not already sent in the heavy ordinance… the tanks to steamroll over the bodies and/or to convey terror upon the protesting civilians. I mean look at those pictures. It's reminiscent of what happened in Cairo and Damascus in the past couple of years. Rather than listen to or have dialogue with the protesters, the Authoritarians just double-down…. send in the riot police, possibly followed by tanks. Liberal use of tear gas, surround them in their own protest camps, etc. This will not end well for China.
