Hong Kong protests: China media says military assembles nearby

Chinese propaganda outlets warned on Tuesday that protesters in Hong Kong are “asking for self-destruction,” as they released a video showing military vehicles amassing near the border of the city.

Meanwhile, the city’s embattled leader, Carrie Lam, told the news media on Tuesday that “lawbreaking activities in the name of freedom” were damaging the rule of law and that the Asian financial hub’s recovery from anti-government protests could take a long time.


It's going to be ugly. The American MSM won't cover the half of it, except perhaps Fox. Will the Democrats notice and comment on the destruction of the Chinese HK-ers groping for freedom? Will Trump? I predict no, and no, but we'll see. By "comment," BTW, I mean more than to say "Oh, that's too bad." I mean, express genuine heart-felt outrage. But we'll see.

Michael Yon does excellent and timely reporting on the HK situation. His coverage indicates that there was nothing about the airport protest that required cancelling flights, suggesting a government tactic designed to create antipathy towards the protests. See:
