As of this writing, live feeds from Hong Kong show an increasing level of unrest on the island. Protesters in yellow garb are marching through the streets facing off with police in riot gear. Columns of smoke and tear gas are rising among the buildings.
Here in the states, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is levying apparatchik mouthpieces in the liberal traitor media to float the possibility of quelling the riots by sending in police from the mainland.
Do not be fooled. The “police” in question are the PAP – also known as the People’s Armed Police. This is not a national police force like the US Marshals or the Federal Bureau of Investigation – the PAP is not a police unit in the sense usually understood in Western Democracies. It is an invasion force.
Specifically, the PAP is trained and armed for a hostile takeover of Taiwan. The logic being that if the PRC army were ever to march on the streets of Taiwan, Beijing would risk worldwide condemnation for its aggression against another sovereign nation.
But if Beijing deploys the “police” to “keep order” then it becomes an internal matter. Just putting down some protests.
Nothing to see here.
The People’s Armed Police was once described as a “paramilitary” police unit but since it was reorganized under the military two years ago, bringing it under the direct control of Premier Xi Jinping, the pretense of the “para” can officially be dropped.
The reorganization move, by the way, makes Xi the most powerful party leader since Mao.
Even before the reorganization, PAP was being prepped as the intervention force of choice for taking over Taiwan, although numerous other choices remain on the drawing board per the Chinese predilection for tactical options.
To understand how effective the PAP would be in suppressing the anti-communist movement in Hong Kong, we need only look at the military branch’s ultimate theater of operations in Taiwan.
Though both Hong Kong and Taiwan are islands, they are vastly different in terms of size and population. In terms of land mass, Taiwan is 20,043 square miles in size while Hong Kong is only 679 square miles. Whereas Taiwan is slightly smaller than the state of West Virginia, Hong Kong is more akin in size to an American county. You could fit all of Hong Kong in the state of Rhode Island and still have 366 square miles of free space.
Though Hong Kong is famous for its tight quarters as one of the most population dense areas in the world, their population of roughly seven million pales in comparison to Taiwan’s population of 23 million.
To make matters worse, Taiwan considers itself a separate, sovereign state and thus maintains its own military complete with air force, navy, and army. Hong Kong is legally a part of Chinese mainland so Xi Jinping commands all the military assets garrisoned on the island.
This not only means Hong Kong is defenseless against its largest regional aggressor, but that it the world community, itself comprised largely of globalists in China’s pocket, would be hard pressed to even speak up about the action.
A force such as the PAP, which has been equipped and trained to land and invade the nation of Taiwan, would make quick work of a much smaller and unarmed Hong Kong.
The deployment of PAP to Hong Kong would effectively stomp out the anti-globalist civil rights movement there and send a chilling message to allies like Taiwan, Japan, and the Philippines that they might be next.
