Besides, how it looks and what happens are two separate things. Iranian goons gunning you down vs Chinese goons keep records of hospital visits, people stained with blue ink, CCTV feeds, etc and then just kicking your door in like it's 1934 are both pretty heavy situations.

Lots of reports of PLA generals/etc in HK. At some point they'll have to make the binary choice of hard escalation of complete withdrawal. HK looks like it can wait them out.
