Hello, Mr. LegCo, if at dawn you slept, shouldn't you wake up now - it's high noon - and get to work?

Hong Kong just went through a political Pearl Harbor.  Isn't it time to beef up the defenses a little bit?

HAS CHINA FULLY WEIGHED THE RISKS OF INACTION?  OR IS IT BUSY TRYING TO APPEASE THE GHOSTS OF FOREIGN RETALIATION?  WHERE IS COURAGE IF IT IS NOT INSIDE ONE'S HEART?

Russian, German and American politicians and military strategists have at different times commented on what they all perceived as a glaring fault of Chinese strategic thinking, which Chinese thinkers themselves seem quite comfortable with, and are oblivious of its cost and risk to their security and prosperity.

Couched in various terms, the best one is that Chinese have "too many ghosts".  We are not talking about simply having enemies, of which China does indeed has many.  We are talking of even more contingencies that could be disadvantageous for China, like in the 1990's failing to join the WTO, conflict with Japan, and trade embargoes on Chinese exports.  They are real all right.  But they have a restrictive effect on China's actions, such as implementing Article 23 in HKSAR in 2002 and 2003.  We cannot fault the leaders of China for being "overcautious" as they do have very real threats.  Rather, we should fault them for being "insufficiently cautious" instead, because they forget to apply the risk and reward paradigm to their default position of inaction.  Doing nothing about Article 23 does have the risk of bolder and more extensive foreign interference in the exercise of sovereignty of China in Hong Kong, in matters of peace and order, which if unattended to will give the residents of Hong Kong that China is not its real sovereign, but the foreign countries that can either create chaos or impose peace at will.

The present Occupy Central is the touchstone of China's sovereignty in Hong Kong.  Defeat and eradicate it, and China will have proven it can be counted on to defend the people of Hong Kong.  Allow and appease it, and China will be proven it is not the true sovereign power in Hong Kong, and its residents should put their loyalties elsewhere, where their rights and property will be safer.

The residents of Mong Kok have won the battle for China, but is China willing and ready to win the War on her Sovereignty in Hong Kong?  Is China afraid of the ghosts of foreign retaliation and trade sanctions that it is willing to rest on the laurels of the ordinary citizens of Mong Kok, until the next shoe falls, or the next insurrection arises?  Or is China brave enough to ask the LegCo to adopt a National Sovereignty Law as the basis for exorcising the traitors, subversionists, and secessionists henceforth and banishing them to the outer darkness where they will shiver and gnash their teeth?

Again, China should weigh the risks and rewards of INACTION, and in this case, there is hardly any reward save for a short term flow of trade, but every risk of losing not just its sovereignty over Hong Kong, but also over other restive regions that the West will be therefore emboldened to incite to rebellion and secession from China.  If it again chooses INACTION, then it will only have itself to blame when every region that foreign influence can reach will flare up in rebellion, and secede from China.

I'm glad there are others in this forum who can see the obvious signs of western instigation.
I wonder how the U.S. would react if China decided to start funding demonstrations on Wall Street
and Washington D.C. with signs posting the names, addresses, and other personal information of
the handful of obscenely rich that own the U.S.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Hilarious! 3 Foreign Stooges accusing Hong Kong people of being influenced by foreign elements. You just gotta laugh at the the absurdity of these clowns. And do take note that no Chinese are here to support them.

abramicus, robert and saltand pepper are all foreigners.

abramicus the Brit is so delusional, he thinks he should write Article 23. Sorry sport, HK has zero desire to return to British rule

saltandpepper the Canuck is my fave, his Red Guard rhetoric instigating violence with rabid hysterics is certain to scare even more Hong Kongers into the Pro-Democracy family .

And Robert the Yank? Having him on board, waving Mao's Little Red Comic Book of failed communist social & economic policies proves just how out of touch they really are. HKers ran away from that, they ain't coming back, and neither is Beijing

Yeah, foreigners are trying to influence the people of Hong Kong. Right here on CD. But HKers have nothing to fear, these 3 Foreign Stooges couldn't organize their way out of a pepper sprayed paper bag.

TIME FOR LEGCO TO BEGIN WORKING . . . IT'S NOW AFTERNOON IN HONG KONG . . . AND PEOPLE ARE WAITING FOR THE LEGCO TO START EARNING ITS PAY.

WHAT DID ARTICLE 23 OF THE BASIC LAW SAY?  IT SAYS THAT THE LEGCO SHOULD PASS LAWS THAT SAFEGUARD THE SOVEREIGNTY OF CHINA.  WHAT LAW HAS THE LEGCO PASSED THAT SAFEGUARDS THE SOVEREIGNTY OF CHINA?  WHAT LAW HAS THE LEGCO PASSED THAT PENALIZES PERSONS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT CONSPIRE WITH FOREIGN POWERS TO UNDERMINE THE SOVEREIGNTY OF CHINA IN HONG KONG?

WE SHOULD ALSO ASK, WHY CHINA STOPPED REQUIRING THE LEGCO TO DO ITS JOB.  THE FAILURE TO IMPLEMENT ARTICLE 23 HAS LED TO THIS OUTRAGEOUS ATTACK ON THE PEACEFUL RESIDENTS OF HONG KONG.  SHOULD THE PEOPLE WAIT FOR THE WEST TO DEFEND THEM INSTEAD FROM THEIR OWN GOONS?

CHINA FEARS TOO MANY GHOSTS.  IT FEARS EVEN ITS OWN SHADOW.  MAO SAID, LET COURAGE BE YOUR FIRST WORD.  DENG ECHOED IT, AND SAID, LET COURAGE BE YOUR FIRST WORD.  IDENTICAL SENTENCES, FROM TWO LEADERS.

WHAT DOES CHINA NOW SAY ABOUT ARTICLE 23?

IT IS TOO HARD AND DANGEROUS?
