China's military has released a slick propaganda video showing a drill of armed troops quelling a protest in Hong Kong, in a thinly veiled warning to the city's pro-democracy movement.

LMAO - Seriously? I mean I guess I could get that coming from Pakistan... In theory however American's believe in freedom and democracy - that all people are created with inalienable rights. Besides aren't fellow human beings? Think of what the Chinese did in Tienanmen Square. We will never know how many they actually slaughtered.

I for one believe in the freedoms espoused in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. It applies to all peoples. Frankly Hong Kong should have been split off as a separate country and avoided all this.

In the long term, both Taiwan and Hong Kong will be neatly brought to the loving bosom of mainland China.

The Chinese have a very long (by Western standards) timeframe for these types of things. So long as there is progress towards that end, however slow that progress may be, the mainland Chinese government will be patient and accommodating.

The violence that is occurring in Hong Kong may accelerate the process of assimilation, a result that runs counter to what Hong Kong protestors want.

I can speak for America and for Pakistan, back and forth and sideways.

It's Magic.
