Hong Kong protests will get rougher: Former CIA official


STUART: DEMONSTRATION, CONFRONTATION CONTINUES. ASHLEY: YEAH. STUART: DENNIS WILDER, FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL DIRECTOR FOR CHINA, JOINS US ON THE PHONE. DENNIS YOU ARE IN HONG KONG, THAT CORRECT?>>NO. I’M IN WASHINGTON. STUART: I DO APOLOGIZE. I’M SORRY. MISTAKEN, MY FAULT. I’M SURPRISED TO SEE THIS. IT IS MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. IT IS AN UGLY CONFRONTATION. WE NORMALLY HAVE THIS ON THE WEEKENDS. WHAT SAY YOU? I WASN’T EXPECTING THIS?>>WELL I THINK WHAT YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT, STUART BEIJING MADE A DECISION AT THEIR SUMMER RETREAT, LEADERSHIP, WHAT THE DECISION IS USE THE HONG KONG POLICE IN MUCH MORE SERIOUS MATTER THAN BEFORE. THERE IS STARTING TO BE THE LITTLE GREEN MEN PROBLEM. IN OTHER WORDS, I THINK THEY HAVE TAKEN A PAGE OUT OF PUTIN’S BOOK, YOU’RE BEGINNING TO SEE PUBLIC SECURITY PERSONNEL FROM ACROSS THE BORDER IN HONG KONG. SO RATHER THAN MOVING IN WITH UNIFORMED PLA, OR THE PEOPLE’S ARMED POLICE THAT WE SEE AT THAT STADIUM ACROSS THE BORDER, I THINK BEIJING IS AUGMENTING THE HONG KONG POLICE FORCE WITH PEOPLE FROM ACROSS THE BORDER AND IT IS GOING TO GET ROUGHER. STUART: NOW THE CHINESE FOREIGN MINISTRY NOW ADMITTED. YES, IT HAS DETAINED BRITISH CONSULAR OFFICIAL FROM HONG KONG, WHO WENT BY TRAIN INTO MAINLAND CHINA, THEN DISAPPEARED. NOW THEY ADMIT THAT THEY HAVE DETAINED HIM. DOESN’T THIS REALLY RAISE THE TENSION, RAISE THE STAKES BETWEEN BRITAIN, WHICH HANDED HONG KONG BACK TO CHINA 1997. THAT RAISES ANTE CONSIDEREDDABLY, DOESN’T IT?>>IT DOES. ALL BEING DONE AGAINST BRITISH COMPANIES AND AMERICAN COMPANIES, TO PRESSURE THEM IN HONG KONG RIGHT NOW, CATHAY PACIFIC PILOTS BEING TOLD TO HAND OVER THEIR PHONES WHEN THEY GET TO BEIJING. PEOPLE CAN LOOK TO SEE IF THEY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES. YOU HAVE SEEN THE MANAGEMENT OF CATHAY PACIFIC TURNED OVER BECAUSE OF THIS WHOLE THING. THERE IS A MULTIPRONGED APPROACH BEIJING HAS THAT IS VERY OBVIOUS. PRESSURE THE COMPANIES. PRESSURE THE TRADE UNIONS. PRESSURE THE HONG KONG POLICE TO DO MORE. THIS IS, THIS IS AN ALL-OUT CAMPAIGN NOW ACROSS THE BOARD IN HONG KONG. USE THE QUOTE, UNQUOTE, PATRIOTIC CITIZENS OF HONG KONG AGAINST THE STUDENTS. USE TWITTER, USE FACEBOOK. WE ARE SEEING AN ASSAULT ON HONG KONG NOW NOT WITH POLICE, I’M SORRY, NOT WITH TROOPS BUT WITH ALL OF THESE OTHER, SORT OF WAYS OF PUTTING THE HEAT ON AND YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THIS INCREASE. STUART: OKAY, WILL IT WORK? YOU’VE DESCRIBED VERY WELL THE INCREASING PRESSURE, QUIET PRESSURE ON EVERYONE, TRYING TO SQUASH THIS MOVEMENT QUIETLY. WILL IT WORK?>>I DON’T THINK SO BECAUSE 1.7 MILLION PEOPLE CAME OUT ON SUNDAY IN SUPPORT OF THIS MOVEMENT AND THAT IS A BIG PART OF SIX OR SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE OF HONG KONG. STUART: DENNIS, HOLD ON A SECOND. I JUST WANT TO ALERT OUR VIEWERS, WHAT IS ON YOUR SCREEN RIGHT NOW IS A LARGE FORCE OF RIOT POLICE MARCHING RAPIDLY THROUGH WHAT WE BELIEVE IS THE A SUBURBAN TRAIN STATION. THEY’RE PICKING UP THE PACE. THEY HAVE PRESS ALL OVER THEM. THERE ARE DEMONSTRATORS FOLLOWING THEM. THIS SQUAD LOOKS TO ME, 30, 40, 50 RIOT POLICE. THEY’RE IN THE SUBURBAN TRAIN STATION. I CAN HEAR SHOUTING BIG TIME. WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON I CANNOT SEE ON CAMERA AT THIS MOMENT BUT — ASHLEY: THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO REMOVE PROTESTERS HAVING A SIT-DOWN PROTEST AT THIS TRAIN STATION, THE SAME LOCATION ONE MONTH AGO WAS THE SCENE WHERE PROTESTERS WERE ATTACKED BY MASKED MEN. 45 OF THOSE PROTESTERS WERE INJURED, ONE CRITICALLY. THIS IS BASICALLY ACKNOWLEDGING, THIS HAPPENED ONE MONTH AGO, NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT IT. STUART: DENNIS, YOU WOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS.>>SURE. STUART: BEARING IN MIND YOUR POSITION. HAS THERE BEEN CAPITAL FLIGHT FROM HONG KONG? IN OTHER WORDS, LOCAL PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MONEY GETTING THAT MONEY OUT AS THE TENSION RISES?>>OH I THINK PEOPLE ARE MAKING THOSE CONTINGENCY PLANS. THEY MAY NOT HAVE MOVED IT YET, THEY MAY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT. I THINK FOREIGN COMPANIES ARE BEGINNING TO SERIOUSLY RECONSIDER THEIR POSITIONS IN HONG KONG BECAUSE OF THIS KIND OF PRESSURE, BECAUSE SOME OF WHAT BEIJING IS ASKING THEM TO DO IS PRETTY UNTENABLE. FOR EXAMPLE, FIRING EMPLOYEES, SIMPLY FOR JOINING THE DEMONSTRATIONS. SO I THINK BEIJING IS IN DANGERING THEIR POSITION IN HONG KONG RIGHT NOW, THROUGH THIS VERY HEAVY-HANDED SET OF TACTICS THEY’RE USING. STUART: I DON’T SEE MUCH DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COLD WAR BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOVIET UNION AND WHAT SEEMS TO BE A DEVELOPING NEW COLD WAR BETWEEN AMERICA AND CHINA. AM I GOING TOO FAR?>>I THINK IT IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF STRUGGLE. IT ISN’T INVOLVING MASSIVE NUMBERS ABOUT NUCLEAR WEAPONS. IT IS NO QUESTION, WE ARE IN A IF YOU WILL, A COLD WAR. WHAT WE’RE SEEING IN HONG KONG IS THE CHINESE VALUE SYSTEM, VERY, VERY DIFFERENT FROM OUR VALUE SYSTEM. AND IT IS BECOMING VERY OBVIOUS. FRANKLY, PRETTY UGLY. AND SO I THINK THAT BEIJING IS REVEALING SOME OF ITS TRUE COLORS, BEING XI XINPING GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW. IT IS GOING TO INCREASE TENSION, AGGRAVATION, THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT DID COME OUT ON SUNDAY WITH A STRONG STATEMENT ABOUT HONG KONG SHOWS THAT THIS ISSUE IS MOVING THE AMERICAN SYSTEM A BIT. SO YES, I THINK, WE’RE HEADED TO ROUGHER GROUND IN THE U.S. RELATIONSHIP. STUART: DENNIS, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.

  5. As I am observing what was going on for month's. I said to myself, what if I can have 1.7 million people,set and meditation and understand Buddha wanjana. The world will definitely be so peaceful and happy life. I have nothing but be peace within my own soul. Don't want to be Rich or have any power over no one. Just peace and loves is all I need. Because so far from what I live to see is all about impower impower and freedom. My freedom is to be peaceful not war. So much questions in my head but for sure there no answer.

  6. Will China come so far in the world only to tear it down with their own hands by attacking the people of Hong Kong? I'm not sure why they would do that when there are so many other peaceful and tactical solutions. He said it … 4:15

  7. Xi JingPin’s strategy ; just send 1,000,000 Chinese comrades to Hong Kong . Match them 1 by 1 ….
    The rioters all go to 1/2 heaven …
    Long live China
    Long live Carrie Lam …
    Long live President Xi …🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

  8. The American style of “Freedom of Speech” – Twitter, FB & YT closed down tons of pro-China members’ accounts in related to current Hong Kong chaos!

    Hey, social media companies & US govt, are you guys just want to retain a/cs that pro-west & black shirt rioters only! If yes, where is the freedom of speech? Do you still have the right to criticize China on freedom of speech anymore? Are you not ashamed of yourself?

  9. why is Hong Kong not it own country, with it's own government, own freedom,own everything other country have, why do they need to deal with china police, government, just asking .

  10. Why won't Fox News report what really happened in the Subway station? The protestors are blocking train doors from closing and holding the subway as hostage. Riot police were called in by the subway staffs to remove these imbeciles. Really? Speaking with a CIA operative in Hong Kong over the phone about the battle plan, not only did you blow their cover, the PLA will be arriving at his door in a few hrs.

  11. First they came for the Tibetans and I did not speak out—because I was not a Tibetan!

    Then they came for the Uyghurs and I did not speak out— because I was not a Uyghur!

    Then they came for the Falun Gong and I did not speak out—because I was not a Falun Gong!

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    China's total surveillance state!
    There are no limits to what they can do!

    Stand united, stand strong Hongkongers, remain peaceful and never give up!

    From your friends in Canada!

  12. These wolves (rioters) attempted to rebrand themselves as sheeps for two days! But the wolves instinct came back out and they are now back on the streets. Violence and vandalism back on!!! HK police, one of the world’s most professional and restraint police forces, just doing their job and they are your sons and daughters too. Which side uphold the rules of law? You decide!

  13. Nobody wants to live in China.
    Everyone wants to live in America.
    BIG DIFFERENCE.
    People that supports Russia, China, or North Korea are trolls.

  14. The gross domestic product of China is 90 Trillion Yuan, or 13 Trillion US dollars. The average factory worker in China makes $283 A MONTH. Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with that!

  15. The world is watching the Communist. They are forcing the free world to unite against the peaceful protesters! In fact, they are wrong and they are destroying themselves instead. ⭐️

  16. So misleading. Reports grossly exaggerated claims of protesters. After the peaceful sit in at Yuen Long station (which was already illegal), the radicals went outside to create havoc, haunt civilians, block roads and due to complaints from local residents, police were called in. Guy detained was caught committing illegal acts with prostitutes and asked to not be reported to his family. Girl shot in the eye was by fellow protester. Why aren’t the true facts reported Fox, aren’t you ashamed? I know, you just want to spread more hate, more turmoil unless it’s your home. We want peace.

  17. Amazing how the US are still calling these types riots by masked rioters destroying properties and attacking police and police stations peaceful protests. How is this type of rioting still protesting?
    We know if this happened in the US, our police would’ve use live bullets already. Police here fire 30+ live bullets if they feel any threat at all. Hence the police violence we have in this country against black and Latino people.

  18. I'm a 24/7 Fox news follower. This is the most disappointingly bias and error riddled clip by either ignorant or plain lazy clowns.

  19. None of the HK police get hurt during their confrontation with protesters, but more than 700 protesters are arrested and many of them get injured, one female protester was shot in her eye by the police and some were wounded by knife attack from gangsters organized by local communist party…. still, the world are standing with the HK protesters after 2 months of massive rallies !

  20. Listen Americans!!! And listen good!!! When you invade Iraq 🇮🇶 and took down saddam what happen to this country and what did you do as a country of the USA 🇺🇸 to help the Iraq’s??? Nothing!!! Nothing at all!!! It’s now left for there own freedom for the past 20yrs till now as we speak!!! And now you want to try to make the same tactics in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 really!!! You think China 🇨🇳 will let you do the same thing again!!!???!!! History is there so learn from it

  21. These coward Hong Kong rioters are quite mild. We are waiting for more serious and violent entertainment. CIA should pay them more to carry out bombing and other violent acts like what it had done in the Middle East.

  22. that 'diplomat' was detained for 15 days and at HIS request not to inform his family because he got arrested in a brothel.

  23. From now Singapore will be No 1 financial hub in the Far East. China just destroyed its own financial hub in order to gain control of Hong’s way of living. Stupid Power hunger PIG.

  24. Haaaaaaa!! What a Joke…?? Hong Kong police are just too Soft for the Rioters….
    You should see How U.S. police's "Shoot First & Ask Question later Policy" use by many police departments….See those protesters pointing lasers to Police to disrupt the eyesight of the police…..Any one doing that at police in LA, NYY or other cities Will Be Getting a bullet up front ….or even at the Back !!

  25. This is war between US and China, HK is a landing zone. China is well prepared, so as the allies around the war. If he is not in HK, He would have no clue what is actually happening here in our homeland

  26. To simplify this video…..it’s not going to end well….for both sides. There will be much resentment to work through afterwards.

  27. You ( FOX) BLOCKS COMMENTS ON a Johnson & Johnson vid ? UNSUB !! YOU ARE LESS THAN GOOGLE. ! U LOSE PHARMA $$$ .

  28. Commie detained singapore 9 Terrex infantry fighting vehicles thru hong kong in transit. Commie try to band singapore to their agenda without success.

  29. China is a Greedy Country
    It Has Also Build illegally CPEC Project on Indian Soil With the Help of Terror State Pakistan.

  30. Chinese government treat ppl in mainland and hongkong in such different ways. Ppl in hongkong can do whatever they want while in mainland ppl even cannot say sth bad for the government.

  31. Of course it will get more violent. CIA is pumping in more money, NED also increasing it's support to the rioters.

  32. If other Chinese cities follow suit China could be overthrown.If i were a Chinese official Id be a little worried.
