Michael Yon, Hong Kong reporter / @Michael_Yon / MichaelYon-online , in re: Hong Kong, and the recent Taiwanese election, won hands-down by Tsai Ing-wen, of the DPP and a proponent of functional independence from Mainland because of China’s abject failure to allow democracy. From the point of view of treatment by Mainland of Hong Kong and Taiwan, they’re joined at the hip. I keep saying, “You’re soulmates.” The failed policies that have failed are Xi Jinping;’s policies. So no one can offer any other mode. HK and Taiwan are brain tumors on the head of Beijing, which can choose to ignore them, and [die], or operate on their own head with chainsaws. Taiwan’s parliament also is DPP; Beijing is upset.
