LIVE: Hong Kong protesters swarm airport for second straight day, again forcing cancelled flights:

@mydogisahusky Beijing is going to crack down on those people, I'm afraid. Shutting down the airport, which is a major shipping hub was a tactical mistake on part of the protestors. It will provoke an outsized response.

@TallTim @mydogisahusky it's even more infuriating that this might be a false flag...
Otoh, Beijing can't just send troops and smash it, this would be an utter disaster, including from domestic policy pov

@Sosthene @TallTim @mydogisahusky Yeah sending in military would just look bad. its not 1989 anymore.

Hong Kong airport blocked by protestors for 2nd day

Riot police sent in and forced back

One cornered - pulls his weapon on unarmed crowd

@mydogisahusky @christinabahk @TallTim how are we supposed to have a civilized society if the police can't even throw harmless women on the floor without retaliation 🙂

@mydogisahusky @christinabahk @TallTim and the more you wait, the highest the price. Eventually it will be so high you can't even afford it even if you're willing to

@christinabahk @mydogisahusky @Sosthene I take no pleasure in pointing it out, and I agree. I just think that Xi's psychology won't allow a compromise.

@TallTim @christinabahk @Sosthene
Oh,I agree too. I'm an old warrior.
They're going to start shooting folks soon.
