    Hong Kong protesters demonstrate against extradition bill

    So you like to see more violence ? That's what you are cheering on isn't it ? You prefer nobody speak on the matter but you then so be it.

    The Hakkas are the original people of Hong Kong lor. They are not from Meizhou, and Meizhou is not the only place to have Hakkas. I may not have studied much but I won't anyhow say things I'm not familiar with.

    We would save money and not have to serve NS but we would not be Singaporean's Singapore though. Such dilemma.

    It's famous in SG, but many people up north are still calling him (and the rest of us) a puppet of the West nonetheless.

    Leadership makes a whole lot of difference. Hard line is certain, but has to be swift and not dragged out over months and not appear to be indecisive like the LegCo or Yuen Long case. If you want to call for a curfew, let's call for a curfew, if you want to call for clamp down, then let's do a clamp down. You look at the protests in PRC, they are not lacking in riots but very rarely drag on for months. It doesn't mean that they were shooting people every time or it would look ridiculous. One possibility is that CCP and HKPF may be lacking in intelligence this time about the organization of the protests, much of which would have to come from grassroots and cyber espionage. Another is that CP has not been actively acting on intelligence.

    It's not entirely a secret that the CIA operates actively in HK. Embassies, Red Cross, NGOs, whatever, are all possible outlets for them to operate. Of course, it's not limited to only the CIA or the U.S. When our former PM was accused of being a puppet of the West, he made public his interaction with CIA operatives in SG and made a high profile demand for an apology from the US State Department. That was his wisdom and quick-witted response to accusation made on him. The US State Department based on a witness account confirmed his charge of bribery on the CIA operatives, and offered money for damages. I think eventually, he rejected it but managed to secure investments from the US. We are seeing none of such political wisdom in the leaders in HK on both sides. The CIA documented this whole incident including a congress hearing: https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP67B00446R000500010022-2.pdf

    However you like to term it, the "independent investigation" has probably has already finished except not made public and not the kind of "independent investigation" you presumed it is. A retired DCP has already been appointed very likely by the party to clean up the mess in HKPF. I don't think CCP is interested in winning whatever street fight or street war or play of words as you may like to call it. They just want to resume order and not impact US-HK Policy Act and the ongoing trade war.

    I believe he was in charged during Occupy and Umbrella. The pan-democrats are saying it will intensify things with the protesters. But then, I think they are just ranting, and it's no difference with the protesters. It could, however, point to some form of power struggle within HKPF though, that either CCP or CL (most likely the former) doesn't like what the current HKPF CP is doing, so they drop in a retired DCP to take over. It is unprecedented in HKPF to have three DCPs.

    HKPF appoints former DCP for temporary additional role in managing security for October 1st. You can expect that the unrests will continue way into October, or at least that's how CL sees it. DCPs can only be appointed by CE. https://news.mingpao.com/ins/港聞/article/20190809/s00001/1565316733607/劉業成獲委任臨時警務處副處長即日生效

    Well, the last of NZ troops left Singapore only in the late 1980's. I personally knew a NZ serviceman who was based in SG, who later moved back to NZ got married and have kids there. He was entirely aware of the threats and why he was in SG.

    KL indeed made an "offer" to send troops to "protect" Singapore. According to LKY, this "offer" prompted him to request for the British to postpone the withdrawal troops, and at the same time Goh Keng Swee started the National Service scheme. You know what was one of the most absurd commentary I've read during the Terrex incident ? Some CCP "analyst" wrote that while MY has been "liberated" from their British colonial masters, SG doesn't have it's own mind and continue to serve their "Western masters". This was also roughly the same time after Najib agreed to PLA Navy docking at strategic ports in MY. This kind of messaging has been toned down after the Malaysian GE.

    I haven't seen anyone agreeing to violence on this thread, except a few who are promoting gunning people down and sending in tanks -- can you imagine what would such comments look like if it was on religious dispute ? Whoever performed an act of crime should be arrested and charged as legally required. This is the general understanding I think most have but not necessarily happening.

    No AI can help with emotionally charged logic. Black or white is still black.
