Imagine the United States using the War of 1812 as justification to commit human rights violations...what valid argument is there for kidnapping book publishers in Hong Kong to censor people?

The US do have the Guantanamo Bay Prison.  https://en.wikipedia..._detention_camp  Sure, no justification for people kidnapping.  Same for burning Chinese flags or industry of opium sales.  You never get enough information about what is really going on and why, to be able to support any of the conflict's sides being youself external to it.  Just opinions based on what we currenty know.  That is why to me it is not that the guy should have waited.  No way an NBA GM can tweet such general statements which could be seen as far as his support for burning Chinese flags.  Wait plus be more specific and politically correct, that could be the solution, if you are right to be against HK kidnapping, you must be against the Guantanamo stuff, too.

Guantanamo Bay is not an accurate analogy. I won't deny horrible things go on there in the name of national security but let's not act like some poor schmuck from Rhode Island got sent there for talking smack about Trump. China censored Winnie the f-ing Poo ffs.

Morey is not nobody. Rockets is traditionally a China team since Yao Ming played there. Harden is selling [expletive] lots of merchandise in China. They have lots of fans. Had Morey thought about the implications of his position for a second, he would not dare post that tweet. He is an idiot for doing that. We are talking about multifaceted exchange between two nations. It is way complicated.

 

Let's look at it from another angle. Say Magic Johnson comes out and supports Trump in 2020 (unlikely) but what do you think the fanbase of Lakers would think considering historically California is home to Democrats? There would be outrage. The situation is similar. The people in USA weigh in on these local affairs as if it is happening on their backyard. You have to be 1) educated about the issue, 2) have organic ties to even have the say, especially for such a chronic problem.
