    Another 3 months of this before the election. Surely the opps can do better than putting up a 78 year old for the other corner?

    I’m coming around to a way of thinking that Trump is in part to blame for what China has done to flex its muscles not just here in HK but in the disputed waters of the region.

    China’s astonishing expansion into the South China Sea’s 1.35 million square miles and its subsequent militarization of the region over the past several years has cultivated a complex security environment. The initial phase of that growing complexity was predicated on geopolitical interest and expansion, notably during U.S. President Barack Obama’s second term in office.

    It would seem the Police Chief was confident his actions were taking away Hong Kong's autonomy in the eyes of the SAR's largest trading partner who had given special privileges due to the previous high levels of autonomy.
