Problem is if you let china have HK without a response

They will then move on Tiwain and then who knows.

I don't think they will move onto Taiwan so quickly. Taiwan actually has an army and air force to oppose PRC. HK is basically a province of PRC, one that has, or is supposed to have, autonomy over internal matters, and China controls external ones. China sees Taiwan as a breakaway province, but in reality it is an independent country. HK is not an independent country. 

The UK needs to step up and take this matter to the UN under the treaty that they signed with China when they handed control to China.

The UK is in no position to do a damn thing about treaty violations.

I don’t think China will initially go fully lethal. I saw a lot of “caged” vehicles. My guess is they send in a large number of troops to “kidnap” and detain and throw them in the trucks. If this doesn’t deter protesters, then maybe it escalates into something worse.

It’s 2019, let’s be civil and not systematically murder protesters. I’m sure the protesters would rather be forcefully detained and kidnapped then dead. China knows another Tiananmen Square event would be an economic disaster. Companies would leave, sanctions would be placed, and who knows what else the international community would do.

I'm going to guess 90% of Americans are not going to sacrifice their Walmart addiction because China roughs up or even kills a bunch of protesters.

Probably won't see tanks, but lots of other armored vehicles, ground troops.

If China rolls in troops. I want the US to supply them with weapons. Then sanction China and move our businesses somewhere else.

If china sent in troops it would be over before we could supply them with anything.
