Seen In Hong Kong

I want nothing more than to make a joke like "the protesters can't lose, they've got the rubber ducks", but the situation is on too much of a knife's edge.  Not that I'm any expert on China internal politics... in fact, those rubber ducks up there know more about it than me... but I'm of the opinion that a Tienanmen event is only being held at bay by the impossibility of keeping it from foreign eyes.

If ducks help, nothing could be better.

Given that in 1989, the Commies were completely willing to send tanks and mechanized infantry rolling over the demonstrators while in full view of hordes of foreign reporters and cameras filming from hotels, I seriously doubt foreign eyes is the reason Tiananmen 2 is being delayed.

I mentioned to a relative last week that the last time a hostile army marched into Hong Kong was when the Imperial Japanese Army invaded in December, 1941.  Given the reports that the protestors are taking down the pylons upon which the CCTV cameras are mounted to, I think the people of Hong Kong suspect it will not be long before the tanks will be rolling into the New Territories.
