I can't eye roll hard enough at this ^ comment
There are "thugs" all over the globe
We don't give a sh!t about thugs unless it suits us (whoever's in office at the moment)
and by this you're suggesting "the rest of the world" isn't watching Hong Kong right now?
and Putin murder squads and quarterly tank rolls
It will be our children's war to fight - if they don't opt to just succumb
this problem started in the 1950's and we've done nothing but exacerbate it for 75 years
and you sound like a global warming alarmist teen angster
I’ve been on about China for years, buddy - what you hear now is frustration more than anything
And yeah- there are other thugs in the world- but only one in a country with a third of the world’s population and an actual stated desire to project power to other hemispheres
BTW - of course the world is watching... that’s good - the tut-tutting that we’ll hear from the media and world leaders won’t mean a hill of beans. The lack of action on China will be much more entertaining than anything.... because of course we shouldnt want to “hurt China’s industries”. So the squashed Hong Kongers on YouTube will be the latest in a long line of causes against China that just go away. Like Tibet or Tiananmen Square
Our children will have no option to succumb because we will have already done it for them. The histrionics over tariffs in this thread alone should be proof that we don’t have the will to standup to anyone much less China
Well that's ^ a far more enjoyable defeated tone... thank you
We made a deal with the devil and we knew damned well we were
and the Hong Kong deal made by GB in 1997 was never going to be honored either
We see that in plain sight now (in perfect hindsight) as just an obvious fact...
The answer is Flowers Bay in Roatan with a cushy Institute of Marine Sciences position...
Also the Kalashnikov's are easier to come by on the island, it's the damned ammo that's so hard to get
once I get that figured properly we'll see you down there
