Except that we started discussing this before they were even considered "guerrillas" or "rebels". They were just protesters throwing water bottles at cops. Most people thought the protests weren't gonna go anywhere. They were wrong. Now let me rub it in already, hou mh hou aa?

I wasn't criticizing you, I agree with you.

I just think the idea that them asking for help from America makes them bad is foolish. Syrian rebels asked America for help. Lybian rebels. Kurds and Shia Iraqis fighting isis. Etc.

But I do think unfortunately us stepping in and helping them would be far too risky of escalating the conflict with China. So they're basically doomed.

You also have to keep in mind what they're resisting. We're over here worried about Trump who is treating migrants inhumanely.

They're resisting being at risk if extradition to China, who literally sends people to slave camps for the slightest thought crime and executes people at will

Trump'd do that if he could.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

He probably wants to bring in more Asian people to do math.

But he can't. China can and does.

Tbh, we should just trade Puerto Rico to China in exchange for Hong Kong. I mean, really, it's not like we're doing anything with it.
