@fitheach Not this in particular, no. Thanks.

The PLA in Shenzhen are making it intentionally ambiguous whether they are preparing for security arrangements around the PRC 70th anniversary on October 1st or martial law in Hong Kong.

The other week they officially released a video of a military drill where they were training for a crowd control situation where the crowd was carrying typical mainland protest signs like "pay us our factory salaries", but happened to be dressed like #antiELAB, and the troops partially addressed them in Cantonese while Shenzhen is a Mandarin-speaking city.

At the same time upper management said that no no we trust that HK police can maintain order in their little city, no need to be drastic. Then following up with literally "[those who play with fire will get burnt]".
