China Rallying Military Forces Near Hong Kong Border…

The White House is monitoring the sudden “congregation” of Chinese forces at the border with Hong Kong, according to reports, following another night of unrest and clashes between protesters and police.

A senior US official who briefed reporters on the condition of anonymity said a number of units had gathered, but it’s unclear if they are security police or part of China’s military, Bloomberg reports.

It comes as Beijing accused the United States of inciting the increasingly unruly protests in Hong Kong, which began two months ago over a proposed extradition bill that could see citizens sent to the mainland.




Since then, demonstrations have evolved into a statement against Beijing’s influence in the operation of the relatively autonomous region.

Bloomberg cites the White House official as saying the US is watching China’s mainland border manoeuvres. Reports of the gathering of forces has sparked panic among Hong Kong locals on social media.

It's none of our business. Twenty years ago Hong Kong was British and now they're kinda, sort of, maybe an independent country or maybe Chinese. Why are the demonstrators flying our flag? What are we to do? Make them a state? In this case we just need to mind our own business. We can always find those little umbrellas for our cocktails somewhere else. Someone has to stop the protests and the Hong Kong police don't seem able. Let the Chinamen do it. IMHO

While we have Americans who want to burn the flag and kneel to insult it, here are these folks, fighting for their freedom, seeing our flag as a beacon of that freedom they want. It’s really dangerous for them to do so, because China will then accuse them of being “influenced by foreigners” and use it as a greater excuse to shut them down.

The Communist Chinese made a video in response to the protester's video. Check out the "pole trick". You'll know it when you see it.
