Rents are high many poor share a rental together with their extended family. While the ultra rich live in the most expensive property on earth. Hong Kong is the Asian Dubai.
HK has problems but that doesnít give anyone in HK the right to vandalize, or organize any movement to break HK away from china. Donít like HK, you can always leave.

All the protesters have is sheer numbers which will only serve to provide a densely packed and target rich downrange for 7.62x39 and 7.62x54 rounds. The bodies everywhere may make it hard for troops on foot to advance, track rigs will just keep on rolling and pack down the path for the infantry. And none of the crews or foot soldiers will bat an eye.


If every one of the protesters had an AK and a vest full of mags and maybe some RPGs scattered through them, hand grenades and such it would be a pretty good fight. The armor would have to use their cannon a lot more. But RPGs can take out armored vehicles even tanks.


But as it is they stand no chance. China is going to clean house on Hong Kong. They are not Taiwan. Mores the pity.. Hong Kong Chinese are seriously wishing they had a 2A right now. That's for sure.
So China will mow down 2.5+ million of it's own people while they are posting this to the world wide web in live time and High-Def seems like a bad P.R. move IMO

The left has completely forgotten this- it was truly amazing that Obama left them hanging (literally) as he supported and loved Muslim nations, even Iran.
