The Hong Kong protests continue and are getting larger. Yesterday the protest drew 1.7 million people in a pelting rain. Michael Yon, war journalist in Hong Kong, said this in an email to Instapundit:
MICHAEL YON EMAILS FROM HONG KONG:
Yesterday’s protest was massive. I have not even slept yet. Estimated 1.7m people. Crowds are notoriously difficult to estimate, but I will confirm it was absolutely massive, stretching for miles in pouring rain. Massive.
Hong Kong is China’s brain tumor. Do nothing…tumor grows. Operate…the procedure could kill the communist party.
This is very serious, Gentlemen. Do not underestimate what is happening here.
Go here to read the comments. Crush this rebellion militarily, because that is what we are talking about, and the Chinese government kills the golden goose. Allow it to continue and, inevitably the pro-Democracy movement spreads to the mainland. The calendar says 2019 but for China it reads 1989, and perhaps, just perhaps, this time the Good Guys win.
