The muzzies would be well advised not to piss off the Chinese, unlike the US, they don’t give a damn about Amnesty Intl or the UN.
Let’s see how tolerant the Chinese are now.
Amish running amok?
How dare you just assume the religious affliation of the attackers! /sarcasm
Against the muzzies: China’s got Balls, Russia’s got Balls, the Serbs have Balls, and sad sack and clueless America has political correctness and making nice-nice.

Vladimir Putin claims Russia is the major support for the Islamic countries
If Russia becomes very weak Islamic world will have no defender from the barbaric westernization that the US and its allies are trying to put into practice
Before going to the ASEAN summit Vladimir Putin suddenly decided to visit Chechnya last Monday. During this visit he took part in the opening of the first sessions of the Chechen parliament. In Grozny the Russian president talked not only about the problems in Northern Caucasia. He touched upon the relations with the Islamic world in general.
Interfax quoted Putin saying: Those who are fighting on the other side (Chechen militants ed.) don’t know that Russia has always been the most loyal, reliable and consistent defender of the Islamic interests. By destroying Russia they are destroying one of the major supports for the Islamic world.
Ezekiel 38:7 KJV Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, **and be thou a guard unto them**.
well, hey, that was 1979 ... lol
Isn’t that an odd statement by Pooty-Poot, in the wake of Chechnya, the theater in Moscow and Beslan school terror attacks?
Take anything you read out of Russia, especially Pravda, with a mountainous grain of salt. Apparently the old commie propoganda minister is sending out orders from the grave...
sure -— but why would Pravda take such a chance with Pooty-Poot, given that many of their fellow journalists have had accidents of late? (this article was 2005, though, before most of the most notable recent incidents).
Seems like no newspaper would print anything that seemed to portray Putin as being sympathetic to the islamic world, unless Putin said that.
I read an article recently how the African's have already begun to resent the Chinese.
It will be interesting to see how China reacts to having it’s people killed, and their faces pushed into sh*t
by these “bandits”.
The Chinese are not nearly as squeamish about killing people as the Americans, they are going to find out.
it sure is bizarre that he calls Russia the “greatest defender of Islam” and that Ezekiel passage says “ ... be thou a guard unto them ...” and several of the nations listed, including Libya and Iran are overwhelmingly islamic.
Well, the Chinese won't be tollerent if their oil supply is interupted. However, they've shown again and again that they don't give a crap about their people. If there is any outrage at all it'll be because of oil, not because of the deaths of the 9 Chinese souls.....
(I hadn’t noticed that that 2nd article was from 2005 either.)
They do give a little crap about their people. It's one thing is the chinese government kills 20 million. It's quite another if barbarians kill 9 Chinese.
It's also going to become a matter of national face and that they will NOT tolerate losing to Africans.
Let it be clearly understood that the Russian is a delightful person till he tucks his shirt in. As an Oriental he is charming. It is only when he insists upon being treated as the most easterly of Western peoples, instead of the most westerly of Easterns, that he becomes a racial anomaly extremely difficult to handle. The host never knows which side of his nature is going to turn up next.
Kipling, The Man Who Was.
I’m sure the PRC will be happy to send in a couple of Divisions to protect the wells.
You ever hear what they do to Muslim separatists they catch in SW China?
There were a lot of Chinese workers who built it, and I would imagine they left some of their genes behind.
It is this highway that has been accused of being the conduit for the spread of Aids in Africa as the truckers conveyed it all along the route.
They already are. Chinese PLA advisors were dispensing free advice and helpful suggestions to Saddam about how to run his rope-a-dope "second war" against us just before Baghdad fell.
And it was Chinese technical people who taught the Serbs how to bag that F-117 that was promptly sent in pieces to Russia for technical analysis so the Russians could develop new detection systems. An incident that, a little bird told us right here on FR, was promptly followed by a series of loud "booms" emanating from the spook shop in the Chinese embassy in Belgrade.
Then there was Chinagate and the Bent One.
No, the Chinese will travel halfway around the world to screw with us. We owe them.
For once I am hoping China kicks ass.
The cutline to the photo says they were ISLAMIC MILITANTS
why not put it in the lead of the story? Oh, I forgot. Those people get a pass.
I love riddles.
