    That Tiananmen crackdown was brutal. I still remember that tank man. I wonder what happened to him. I hope he survived. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Hong Kong. May they find justice and democracy.

    The Umbrella Revolution is gaining momentum, but what are the chances it will end well?

    It will not. Because if you have a look at the key figures, they have close connections to the US.
    The rest you may fumbl together by yourself. But it is not accidental that this starts right now.
    With China siding Russia in the bloody stupid US embargo.
    This is not about democracy. This is about weakening the chinese government for a purpose.
    I am curious how long the US will still get away with such shit.

    So, all those students and others in Hong Kong are just pawns in some complex conspiracy orchestrated by the same US government that can't wipe its own ass well enough to keep a crazy person from running into the White House unimpeded? Yeah, OK pal. :rolleyes:
