China said Monday it had suspended rest and recuperation visits by American warships in Hong Kong in response to a US bill supporting pro-democracy protesters in the semi-autonomous city.

“In response to the unreasonable behavior of the US side, the Chinese government has decided to suspend reviewing the applications for US warships to go to Hong Kong for recuperation as of today,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing.

China also said it would impose sanctions on US-based NGOs that have acted “badly” over the recent unrest in Hong Kong.

The sanctions will apply to NGOs including the National Endowment for Democracy, Human Rights Watch and Freedom House, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing.

4. So Trump shouldn't have signed the bill supporting the

pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong because sailors might be pissed?

5. So shift those R&R visits to Taiwan.

Call it “the real China” in the press relief. Say, “we’d honestly rather do business with people that aren’t committing genocide. Oh, bother.”

7. I made more than a dozen liberty calls in Hong Kong

Any water entrance into Victoria Harbor is spectacular. I had several sets of cracker jacks made there. I also learned not to drink up with British soldiers. I didn't even realize the Navy was still visiting since the turnover.

8. Best liberty in WESTPAC

I had some really good times there. This is too bad but it much more important to support the people of Hong Kong.

11. Made one port visit there.

Lookout Mountain/Overlook Mountain - something like that name where you could see mainland China.

They kept it lush and green over there for the propaganda value.

Could have had a tour into mainland China but did not have a passport.

Got one later but never went back to HK.

Steep cable car where the conductor sat on the brake handle.

Floating restaurant.

13. Hong Kong is probably not the ideal place for military R&R these days.
