Don't know if they're underscoring anything with the color change or just a coincident.

    Am I a joke to you?

    Disclaimer, I chose my avatar some 10 years ago, well before the SCMP olive branch, and literally got it by googling the Kilo flag.

    I think the bill is more of symbolic value than aiming for practical effect. Still, one should not entirely dismiss the bill (if it passes). Since banning sale of weapons to the police by the US would in effect label the HK police force as a sanctioned entity, its international reputation and credibility will suffer even more than now. The bill will send a signal that the US regards the HK police as little more than a political tool to suppress citizens rather than an impartial law enforcement body. This may impact international cooperation with other legal enforcement bodies in the future, especially those in the West.
