    I think hundreds of demonstrators and protesters will end up that way. They don't know what Chinese rule means.

    They should emigrate here to the UK while they still can as UK subjects. Or has that expired?

    .
    that expired a while ago, I am in China now, and go to Hong Kong often, the people in HK live in dream land, they are going to get a big shock in the coming days, china will crush them if they continue protesting.

    unfortunately that option expired a while ago, I am working in mainland China at the moment, and travel to HK often, the HK people are living in dream land, as they will find out in the next few days, China will crush them if they don't stop causing china problems.

    Thanks Frosty.

    They are naïve, people were shown facing off with riot police on the news this morning. Still peaceful.

    If they persist it will become a nightmare, they are on borrowed time and could continue living in luxury if they conform.

    Only a few miles away people are living from mud.

    Yes this is correct Peter.

    Trust the daft Brits to even make the "contract" with the enemy! And then... Actually honour it!?

    Didn't do that with bluddy Turkey, quite rightly, and look where Cyprus is now! Happy!

    Come on, Pete, get with it, don't let the side down!

    But I do fear this is the end of their way of life if they don't wake up and shut up many will be killed, they've been spoiled thinking they can change every nation like they can the wimps.

    I wonder if Iraq has just declined the US' request to continue providing them with oil at extraction cost, just like Kuwait did?

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-48619771

    There's no way Iran would antagonise or confront Saudi.

    Last week they said it was Houthi drones.

    Yeah, as if!

    The Yanks are suspect in all these attacks.

    When I was an infant about half of my toys were marked as M ade In Hon Kong. I used to separate the Triang from the plastic stuff and look scornfully at the basic attempt the Hong Kong factory was making.

    The last thing I purchased from Hong Kong was a Smart Phone at a fantastic price. It blew it's concealed battery.

    If Honk Kong keep insisting on selling a load of rubbish, of course the good citizens are going to be embarrassed. Rightly so. Am I close.

    Now I'm more positive this was the Yanks provoking trouble to start a war, again for oil:
