This is the key to the article:

The Hong Kong newspaper Ta Kung Pao published a photograph it said showed Eadeh talking with student leaders in the lobby of a luxury hotel. It appeared under the headline “Foreign Forces Intervene”.

The Chinese are gearing up to crack down on Hong Kong using the pretext of American interference in the politics of China.  What will we do to help the people we are encouraging once the bloody crackdown begins?  Abso-crappity smacking-lutely nothing.

Ask the Kurds.

Not saying we should help.  I'm saying we should stay out of it.  When Hong Kong first reverted back to China, China would have been foolish to interfere with their lucrative relatively free market practices.  But now, the Chinese on the mainland have learned to let manufacturing thrive while still maintaining dictatorial powers.  No reason now for them not to do that in their territory of Hong Kong.

It is much more than just taking over the territory.  I was in Kong for a but before the handover in 97.  It was just a great place.  Hong Kong Chinese are Cantonese and not Mandarin like Mainland China.  The Chinese Government has been erasing Cantonese culture and language now for a few decades.  The Chinese not only are losing their home but no will soon longer have a culture to go back to.  It is the same with Tibet.  Tibetian youths no longer know their culture or language and just speak Mandarin Chinese.

I was in Hong Kong before the lease ran out, too, and it's still a great place.  I've also been to mainland China several times, back when Beijing streets were curb to curb bicycles, and more recently where it's all Mercedes.

And yes, it is about much more than just taking over territory.

It's about the fact that the US considers the South China Sea to be part of the Gulf of Mexico, the US debt to China, crude, counterproductive, US economic protectionism, and US continued agitation in Taiwan.

If we weren't protecting Taiwan, the Chinese would take it tomorrow.

Trump must steer clear of the unrest in Honk Kong.   

Non-intervention is the key.   Allow China to modernize from within.

Obama got it right on some things.

Give credit where credit is due.

Maybe these would be more appropriate words to guide Trump:

"Let our affairs be disentangled from those of all other nations, except as to commerce" - Thomas Jefferson

At least zealous "My Country, Right or Wrong" patriots keep telling themselves things like that.

Nah, like most blacks, Obama tries to act White and say White kind of things because he is jealous.  You will see this trait is very common with black guys and Obama is no exception.  Those black males are not content with the way God made them.  Like you have probably observed, they sag their pants to deceive folks into thinking they are looking at a white man’s highly coveted flat posterior. The sagging trend started in prisons where black homosexuals wanted to make themselves more attractive to members of the Arian Brotherhood. You see, Chief, the practice of "pants sagging" is rooted in the sin of sodomy. It eventually found its way into the Motown community. After that, "sagging," was handed down to rappers and young colored men who found a unique advantage in business and in their personal lives by sagging their pants in order to make their hind sides appear as flat as the anointed derrière of typical lily-white true Christian White male.

Chief, folks who are unhappy with the way God made them are nothing new.  Don't quote him anymore, please.
