Prelude to Conflict: Asia, November 3

Prelude To Conflict

Prelude To Conflict

Disunity delayed Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement. A policeman turned pro-occupy, then called a retreat, but not after expressing his distaste for a recent swelling arrogance in the Hong Kong police force. And reality sets in that 2017 won’t look how people want it.

Taiwan addresses internal problems of espionage and the lingering food oil scandal while China looks to space where Virgin fails. Yes, Beijing and the HK police will likely avoid Tiananmen Part II, contrary to the hopes of Western News and readers.

But, while HK’s Umbrella Movement seems to be losing their game in HK, Asian students are, once again, winning the hearts of the rest of the world as the international community grows in awareness of HK’s situation and Beijing’s deafness in governing, without having the virtue of “blind” justice. Beijing’s stiff neck will calmly win the HK battle, but, more importantly, it will lose the war of international trust. Few seem to know where the real battleground sets. Yet, the purpose of peace and democracy is winning on that battleground, even as secret as its location seems to be to almost everyone.
