    No one is arguing the US will come and save Hong Kong here. Your obsession with this strawman argument is very odd.

    The more relevant question is where Hong Kong goes from here. US will impose sanctions on Mainland and Hong Kong officials. Existing trade privileges will be impacted in some form. HK as a conduit for foreign capital into Mainland is also likely to be adversely impacted. Except for the sanctions on officials, nothing else will benefit local HK people. So the real question is, how will Hong Kong adapt to this situation?
