I wish the US could raise a Gurkha battalion or two.

You can, for the right price :)

Trump might need the objective body guarding help https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurkha_Reserve_Unit

I have heard ~ not confirmed by anyone who is really in the know ~ that some Shenzhen police officers are already in HK, working sort of semi-undercover...
A reminder from CHN's Communist Party media of who else could drop by to help (with a yet another reminder @ the end of the article)?

Shenzhen police drill mirrors Hong Kong protests

(...)
Same Communist Party info-machine sharing some Twitter video of "armed police armored vehicle fleet" preparing for "a drill in Shenzhen, S China's Guangdong province" - a few screen captures attached, as well as a map showing where Shenzen is re:  Hong Kong.

Hong Kong the pearl of the orient is about to be overwhelmed by the PRC. To be just another part of the megapolis pearl delta megacity.

The "T" word and variations seem to be popping up in Communist Party and Chinese government media ...
Looks like they're setting up their response to any deaths from the inevitable PRC intervention;  crushing internal pro-democracy = bad -- responding to evil domestic terror = well, what country wouldn't do the same?

Given the photo op that was Tiananmen Square, you won't see any tanks, merely  'armoured cars'... like many police forces and Brinks or Garda use.

To be honest, when you said "the T-word," I initially presumed you meant "Trump" or "Trudeau" -- those words tend to set some people off regardless of context or details.   ;D

I'm an amateur in the world of international relations, but isn't it a bit rich of China to express displeasure at "foreign interlopers"?

Perhaps Fox News hasn't taken a position yet ...  :dunno:
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness

China has cancelled upcoming port visits to Hong Kong by two US Navy warships amid continued protests and rising tensions.

The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS Green Bay was set to visit Hong Kong on August 17, and the Ticonderoga-class cruiser USS Lake Erie was expected to arrive next month.

The Chinese government has, however, decided to deny these requests, the US Pacific Fleet told INSIDER in a statement Tuesday ...

The US' request to have its navy warships visit Hong Kong amid protests there is inappropriate and could have ulterior motives, Chinese experts said on Wednesday as China has reportedly turned the request down.

US Navy's transport dock ship Green Bay and guided missile cruiser Lake Erie requested port visits to Hong Kong in the next few weeks, but China has rejected the request, CNN reported on Wednesday, citing a statement by Nate Christensen, the deputy spokesman for the US Navy's Pacific Fleet.

This is not the first time China has denied a visit by a US warship to Hong Kong. In September 2018, China decline a port visit for US amphibious assault ship Wasp.

Yang Yujun, dean of the Academy of Media and Public Affairs at Communication University of China and a former Defense Ministry spokesperson, told the Global Times on Wednesday that it is within China's scope of sovereignty to approve a US warship's request to visit Hong Kong, just as the US needs to approve visits by Chinese naval vessels to Hawaii

"The security situation in Hong Kong is very severe, and the US government had just issued a travel warning to US citizens. At this timing, the US' request to have warships stop by in Hong Kong is contradictory to the warning and very inappropriate," Yang said.

"We can clearly see the role the US has been playing in the turmoil in Hong Kong. We are highly suspicious of US motives, now that it still expects to have warships visit Hong Kong," Yang noted ...

Global news video about protests (on both sides) in Halifax. 

I chuckled a bit at the end with the modified Mustang with a "Bayi" decal, which happens to be one of the insignia for the PLA.  That means "August 1st", in honour of its formation on Aug 1, 1927.

I lived in Vancouver. I left because of Chinese abuse and bulling.

That's disappointing and surprising to hear. Here in the GTA I've had nothing but positive and pleasant experiences - professional and personal - with Chinese-Canadians.

If I had any negative experiences, I don't remember any.

This man passed away last year and did a lot for our community ( Swansea ).

The Hong Kong Garrison of the Chinese People's Liberation Army on Thursday morning completed the 22nd rotation since it began garrisoning Hong Kong in 1997.

Approved by the Central Military Commission, the move is a normal routine annual rotation in line with the Law of the People's Republic of China on Garrisoning the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

The new personnel arrived at the garrison barracks via land, sea and air.

The fresh members have been trained and carried out studies to master military skills and knowledge about the general situation in Hong Kong and relevant laws ...

A total of 240,000 Shenzhen residents have been mobilized to work as volunteer police to prevent terrorism and violent crimes as neighboring Hong Kong has been vandalized by violent protests for more than two months.

A volunteer police team of 5,000 residents including people working in the catering and retail industry was launched in Shenzhen's Futian district on Tuesday, local police confirmed with the Global Times on Wednesday.

The volunteer officers will wear police reflective vests and carry flashing lights, whistles and batons when patrolling the city's main streets day and night under the guidance and serve as an assist force to the police.

The team has already started their work in a Futian community under two pilot programs where they patrol the streets and intervene immediately if they spot a fight or other crimes, according to a statement Futian public security bureau sent to the Global Times on Wednesday ...
