Watch: China Answers Houston Closure With Raid On US Consulate In Chengdu

China has slammed what it says is a violation of international law after on Friday a group of US federal agents were seen forcing open doors at the Chinese consulate in Houston using power tools and crowbars on Friday as consular staff inside prepared to leave after its ordered closure.

The Trump administration had given China until 4pm Friday to vacate the Houston consulate. Mike Pompeo had charged that the consulate was “a hub of spying and intellectual property theft”.

China has shuttered the US consulate in Chengdu in response on Saturday:

Security was tight outside the U.S. consulate in the Chinese city of Chengdu as staff prepared to leave, while U.S. officials took over the closed Chinese consulate in Houston https://reut.rs/2OUcOIj

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shutting down consulates most generally is a prelude to war; I would like to hope (and pray) that President Trump is not so seriously mentally unhinged as to believe that a war against China would "make him look butch" ahead of November's elections, but with this guy, one never really knows.

I would like to hope that some "Adult in the Room" advising him, would calmly suggest that this is the absolute polar opposite of how he should be behaving with regard to China.
