36 killed after knife gang attacks China police station
NBCNews ^ | June 27, 2013 | Henry Austin

Posted on 06/26/2013 10:21:50 PM PDT by Daffynition

Knife-wielding assailants killed nine policemen and 17 civilians in a bloody attack that only ended after 10 attackers were shot dead in western China early Wednesday.

At least three people were also injured during the early morning assault on the Lukqun Township in Xinjiang province, Chinese state media agency Xinhua reported.

If confirmed, it would be one of the bloodiest incidents in Xinjiang since nearly 200 people were killed in the regional capital, Urumqi, in 2009.

muslims again.

tensions between the large population of Muslim Uighurs

What would muslim violence be without apologist western front groups.

Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the Germany-based World Uyghur Congress, told The Associated Press that the conflict was triggered by the Chinese government's "sustained repression and provocation" of the Uighur community.

The Chinese are not the West and do not subscribe to liberal political correctness. To the person in China I heard the same response about islamic violence. They said we will kill them.

This is one area of Chinese affairs we should stay completely out of and let them deal with the problem in their own cultural ways.

all this hub bub about gun control fixing all.

My business travels took me all over Asia. No guns? Hammers, knives....you name it. If there is a desire to kill, there is a “tool”.

>> Knife-wielding assailants

I think the correct cultural term is ‘assassins’.

Even in some parts of the U.S. it is illegal to carry a pocket knife. So it doesn’t take Freddy Krueger to create a carnage.

I understand the point you are making, but regarding the thought about no/few guns in Asia, I was just reading a post in a forum from some anti-gun Brit living upcountry in Thailand, bemoaning the fact that every house in his village had a firearm of some sort.

A number of those are probably home made single shot shotgun shell or rifle cartridge “zip guns”.

This is the perfect place to link the following YouTube video titled 'Too Close - Don't Underestimate the Knife.' It shows Dan Inosanto, better known as a personal student of Bruce Lee, but in his own right a master of several Filipino bladed weapon systems, many years ago giving a course to police officers about the potential dangers of facing a knife wielding assailant. The second video shows the reality of a knife attack ...it is very different from what you see in the movies. The third video shows what a knife can do to a person.

Video 1: Dan Inosanto:

Too Close Do Not Underestimate a Knife

Video 2: A REAL knife attack is likely to look like this:

A real knife attack is likely to look like this

Video 3: The reality of a knife slash

The reality of a knife slash

Information that I think is still very relevant today, especially since some think that just because they have a gun on their person they will have the opportunity to use it.

Without adequate situational awareness, and against someone who knows how to use a blade, many people would be surprised at what the outcome would be. Especially since the vast majority of gun owners only practice at the range ...there is little to no high-adrenaline realistic training. Simply firing away at paper targets. In a home invasion scenario a gun is extremely helpful, since there is usually enough time to retrieve it and enough time that one's nerves have settled sufficiently to take cogent action. However, on the street and at close range, one has to have sufficient situational awareness and an ability (either innate or trained) to deal with the rush of adrenaline and loss of fine motor movements that would occur.

Most people do not have that innate ability, and most people who have guns only shoot at the range. Helpful in 99% of possible home invasion incidents, or a mall shooting type of situation, but inadequate against a determined attacker coming to you unexpectedly. One may say that is unlikely to happen, and that may be true, but I believe if you carry a weapon you should anticipate even that which may be unlikely. And honestly, it may not be that unlikely. Maybe not a Filipono waving a balisong on your face, but a home intruder who managed to get close enough without your knowledge, like that lady who got pummeled by some thug in her home. Most violent encounters happen faster, more violently and closer than most people expect, and if all you have is range time you better hope you get a foolish thug.

In many ways I think a lot of gun owners have the same mentality as a lot of martial artists had before the advent of the UFC. Static beliefs that their art will enable them to defend themselves, until they started seeing black belts in Karate getting owned like children by grapplers.

Were they using assault knives?
Are those hate crimes?
Lastly, did they get the knives from the ATF "knife runner" program?

First there was a knife attack, and after that, 36 people were killed?
