If the protesters and their backers in the Civil Human Rights Front get their wish for a U.S./NATO intervention in Hong Kong, they should be prepared to handle the consequences of a potential war between the U.S. and China. In such a conflict, the U.S. would meet its match after so confidently bullying the People's Republic of China; on China's side in the war, there would be a rising country with vast military power, and on America's side there would be a rapidly declining empire which has spread its resources so thin that it's estimated to be unable to win a war against China and its allies. Going forward, the U.S. shouldn't act too recklessly in its aggressions, or it might get what it wishes for.
