Hong Kong unrest

It seems that the protests in Hong Kong are not ending anytime soon. And the city authorities’ will is weakening amid the unending demonstrations, as the leaked audio of Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam who “would resign if she could,” reveals. Though she has brushed aside the rumours of resignation, she didn’t say anything about the authenticity of the leaked audio. Moreover, Lam’s silence on the authenticity of the audio testifies her frustration over her inability to bring normalcy to the city. The reason for her failure to end protests peacefully lies in the “one country, two systems” under which she “has to serve two masters by the constitution.”
Will China intervene by sending its troops in Hong Kong to end the protests? Probably, China will not interfere. And the authorities in Hong Kong will ensure the protesters to exhaust all their energies. The way the authorities are dealing with the protests shows that they are relying on the strategy of exhausting the protestors’ energies.
