Kunming knife attack: Xinjiang separatists blamed for 'Chinese 9/11'
TheGuardian ^ | 2 Mar 2014 | Jonathan Kaiman in Kunming and Tania Branigan in Beijing

China's president, Xi Jinping, has called for "all-out efforts" to bring to justice the black-clad assailants who killed 29 people with knives and machetes in a bloody terrorist attack in the south-western city of Kunming on Saturday night.

~snip~

It is the first time people from the north-western region have been accused of such a major and organised attack outside its borders, despite rising unrest there in recent years. Many of its Uighur ethnic group, who are Muslim and Turkic-speaking, chafe at Chinese policies and a smaller number want an independent state...

I guess allowing Chinese citizens to defend themselves with concealed firearms isn’t on the table....

The problem, so far as the Chinese government is concerned, is that the attack was organized.

I noticed that in the MSM these terrorists were largely described as “separatists”. The Muslim part was conveniently omitted.

MSM bends over forwards to avoid mentioning the words “Islam” or “Muslims” in any way other than an absolutely fawning favorable way.

Other than the poor lousy 27 victims, this is embarassing & inconvenient to the MSM as it involves both Muslims and the non-use of guns to commit a horrible crime.

“What if there had been ONE Chinese armed with a gun on that train?” could be the next question.

I’ll just be for looking the other way when the Chinese Government goes into the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and begins a campaign of ethnic cleansing and forcing the surviving refugees into Greater Kazakhstan. I don’t really see any other recourse for China. The curtailment of the world-wide Muslim Terror War must begin somewhere. The Russians would soon follow their example, while the United States just squawks about the inhumanity of it all. This bodes ill for the Eastern Muslim countries. Once it begins, where does it end? In Israel, of course, as the Muslim Nations are squeezed westward. That is when the US, Canadian, Australian, & the remaining non Anti-Christ aligned countries enters the fray to defend Israel and the Mid-East oil fields. Armageddon has to start somewhere, and it will. This scenario may just be it.

They were hoping they were Tea Party members.
