A Meeting in Hong Kong

A large private jet flew over the skies of Eurasia towards South-eastern China, towards Hong Kong. It had been years since the Queen had visited Hong Kong, the last time she had been here she was but a child, and the city was a British colony. No longer. It was now in the hands of what she considered to be 'the one sane force on the Asian mainland'. She gazed out of her window at the blue skies and the darkened clouds below, and at the escort fighters outside of the plane, meant to protect her. She thought it odd that so many were needed to protect just one. But such is the nature of the day we live in... she thought.

Twelve hours after its departure from London, the jet landed in Hong Kong, and the Queen stepped out. She had been commissioned by the Prime Minister as an official Ambassador of the United Kingdom, which was odd, she thought, seeing as she actually had power over the Prime Minister. No matter, though. The world still respected her as Queen of Great Britain, and she was even considered Head of State in some nations, former colonial possessions of Britain.

She climbed into a limousine, escorted by Chinese police officers. She rode to the Peninsula Hotel, where they were intended to meet the leader of the USC. She had high expectations for this meeting. The Prime Minister had said that he had been contacted personally by their leader, and then she had spoken to him as well. Both sides were optimistic of what was to come.

The Penninsula Hotel was a gem of Kowloon. Widely considered for decades the premier hotel in Asia. Security was tight in the Hotel as the queen would be escorted into the grand lobby. It had been emptied upon Presidential Order. The sound of trumpets would blair inside playing "God Save the Queen."

The President of the United States of China in the front of a recieving line with generals and ministers, behind them the entire 300 member state council would stand in attention in the lobby.

"Your Majesty, welcome to Hong Kong, Capital of the United States of China!" he said bowing.

The Queen bowed before the President, and upon returning to an upright position, she put a surprised look on her face and said, "Oh my..." She was astounded at the large number of Chinese high-ranking officials gathered before her. Behind her, only a couple of bodyguards and two other diplomats were gathered. Her translator followed her into the building, as she followed the President to the meeting room where they would discuss these matters officially.

She gazed in amazement at the sheer amount of men and priceless items around her. She recognized the ministers and others at her side, as she had seen them in pictures, although never actually dealt with any of them, nor spoke to them. She was very impressed that the President would go to all this trouble just for the meeting. She followed him.

"Your majesty, will you accompany up to the tower? It has quite a lovely view of Victoria Harbor." he said. Going up the elevator they would be taken into a massive conference room which was decorated by traditional chinese antiquities. The room would normally be rented out by multi nationals but this would take priority.

"Your majesty, I would like to talk to you about the situation on the Northern Border. We would like to sign an agreement, whereby Britannia helps us maintain command of the waves during actions taken to strangle the Red Star in China in the cradle."

"Mr. President... I have to say that the United Kingdom does most certainly agree with the United States' position regarding the Leftist revolution in the North. We stand by you as if you are our brothers. We are both looking out for what is best for the people, and I, and my husband and Prime Minister Gwynedd will agree, do not believe that a policy by which over 60 million people have died by oppression is a good one. It will not benefit the people of Ming..." She paused, and took a drink of her tea and stared out the window for a moment.

"Britain would most certainly be willing to cooperate militarily with China in these matters. The Reds will not take Northern China. They have already spread their influence over every continent, and we are very wary of their presence. We are afraid that they are bent on total domination, not only of their people but of the world. We will do anything in our power to counter them."

"Thank you your majesty. We ask for assistance of the British Fleet in the Pacific to blockade the North Chinese coast. We believe that we cannot allow the communists to buy the loyalty of the populace by giving them false promises, only to cut off the people when they are strong enough to crush all opposition. We both know of the poverty of ideas which they suffer from."

She sat for a minute, thinking about this man's proposal...

"Yes, President, the United Kingdom will back you on whatever endeavour you go on in this matter in Asia. We will dispatch the Eastern Navy, which is normally positioned in the North Sea, to aid you. It consists of half of our total naval forces. I doubt we will have much trouble with them when your ships, allied with our ships, meet them in battle and have not only a technological advantage, but a numerical one as well."
