It is time that Leung must redeem himself from his incompetent act.
It is time that Leung must redee ...
THE PREDICAMENT OF THE "INTERNAL FORCES" PROLONGING THE PROTEST IS THAT OF A LOSE-LOSE PROPOSITION VIS-A-VIS THE OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT HEADED BY XI AND THE FOREIGN POWERS BACKING THE UMBRELLA TERROR OCCUPIERS.
Unfortunately, Leung, while being openly denounced by the protesters, in his fundamental course of action and policy, has ensured the indefinite prolongation of the illegal occupation of public roads in Hong Kong, that was his duty to keep open. Failure to enforce the law, failure to preserve public order, and failure to go after the criminals, does not make him a hero of China, even if he is being denounced by the protesters. The ONLY reason his superiors are keeping him in office, in fact, may be the dubious honor of being denounced by the protesters.
This is why "external forces" alone do not account for the entire situation. They only account for the mobocratic dictatorship being imposed on Hong Kong by foreign powers, receiving their "democratic" credentials from a handful of Western media producers. The response of the HKSAR at the level of the Chief Executive suggests both "external" and "internal" forces at work also. And the moribund response of the Legco suggests it too is paralyzed by both "external" and "internal" forces.
The game being played by the "internal forces" is the equivalent of a Russian Roulette, initially designed to ensnare Xi, but which he deftly dodged, and now, the instigators of this farce are faced with the unpalatable situation where at every round of escalation, Xi can pass, but they are the ones who have to pull the trigger, either on their own careers or on the Foreign-backed protest they nurtured into a rebellion. The referendum was one way for them to climb down from their positions. Its cancellation shows that the foreign powers behind the protest refuses to let them sacrifice the protest to save their jobs. This political opportunism, using a foreign-backed rebellion to "struggle" against a fellow leader, is boomeranging on the "internal forces" supporting the insurrection. Now, they have to make a choice, to come out openly in support of the foreign powers, or to make themselves anathema to the foreign powers by clearing out the protesters once and for all times.
