China Likely to Use Army to Crush Hong Kong Protests

The protests in Hong Kong that have been going on for a few months now are likely to end soon. Strategist David Roche has claimed that the strikes and protests will be settled or crushed soon enough, most possibly by October 1 this year.

The day has more significance for China as it is the 70th anniversary of China’s National Day this year. In fact, from the Chinese context – the politics and economy go hand in hand, and the way China is expected to resolve the issue will have a lot to do with the response to the US-China trade issues.

Liu Xiaoming, the Chinese ambassador to the United Kingdom, has issued a stern warning to the world community and the Hong Kong protesters that China will “not sit on its hands”. Liu has gone on record to indicate that if the situation goes out of control in the Hong Kong region, the Chinese government will take action to quell the unrest in the region.

The protests that started on the extradition bill have moved ahead to the issues like freedom of expression and democracy. The Hong Kong protests are into their third month and have seriously crippled the economy to a greater extent. There are several areas that have been affected due to the protests – including markets and cargo services. Hong Kong is one of the most important cargo hubs.

Over 700 protesters have already been arrested ever since the protests have begun in early June. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has suggested a personal meeting with his Chinese counterpart to “quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem.”
