#2 Of course it is possible that someone grabbed a unique opportunity but the Soviets more or less set the standards for bloodless coups and coups almost always happen Friday evening Saturday morning to ensure things can be settled for good before the regular folks tune into the news and workplace gossip on Monday. Cuts down on a lot of problems and I know the Chinese would be aware of it.
