President Xi Warns "Stopping The Storm And Restoring Order" In Hong Kong Is China's Top Priority

pdate 2: Pretty soon, all of the students working to transform their campuses into fortresses against the Hong Kong police might be facing an even more formidable foe: The People's Liberation Army.

Foreshadowing the possibility that the Hong Kong protest movement could end with a Tiananmen Square-like mass-casualty incident - at least that's what we gleaned from remarks made by President Xi at the BRIC leaders summit in Brasilia.

According to a post on Weibo (China's answer to Twitter), Xi told his fellow BRIC leaders that stabilizing Hong Kong had become a serious challenge, and warned that "stopping the storm and restoring order" is a "most urgent task".

Here's a translation of the Weibo post, describing Xi's remarks.

[Xi Jinping: Stopping the storm and restoring order is Hong Kong's most urgent task at present] On November 14, local time, when President Xi Jinping attended the eleventh meeting of BRICS leaders in Brasilia, he indicated China's current situation in Hong Kong.

The government has a solemn position. Xi Jinping pointed out that the persistent violent criminal acts in Hong Kong have seriously trampled on the rule of law and social order, seriously undermined Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and seriously challenged the bottom line of the "one country, two systems" principle. Stopping the storm and restoring order is Hong Kong's most urgent task at present.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the bigger question has to be, will a massive crackdown end the demonstrations?!?

I frankly, am not sure they will.

It appears that even though these demonstrators have been met with live fire; teargas, and worse, there appears to be a "toughening up moment" happening right now, when they just don't seem to care about the possibility that the crossfire could actually kill them.

And if this happens, what President Xi's troops of the Liberation Army may be able to accomplish, other than killing a lot of people, will be very limited in scope, in terms of ratcheting the violence down.

I wouldn't want to be in that man's shoes right now for anything; if his efforts fail, he will "lose face", both at home and abroad, and his vision for the Belt/Road project, may well vanish along with his Presidency.

He cannot be seen as having "made a bad move here", either by Hong Kong residents; Chinese citizens;, or the international community.

He knows, without any doubt, that any wrong read or judgement of the demonstrators, will have the 24/7 cable cycle grinding him up, and spitting him out.
