Reaction to dissent in Hong Kong is a bit like the US and UK then? When you think about it what choice do we have? On a national level if we demonstrate the police can descend on us having rubber bullets and tear gas in their armoury. On a foreign policy level, well your either with us or we will wipe you off the face of the earth – currently happening in Ukraine and Africa – where Ukrainians are fighting Ukrainians and Africans are succumbing to Ebola – all on behalf of our puppet masters, who behind the scenes, tell their appointed democratic leaders what policies to adopt on national and global levels.
The so called peace and freedom loving western democracies are nothing less than playground bullies imposing their will on those countries that cannot defend themselves. Thank goodness for China and Russia. At least they know fascism when they see it.
