Deaths, injuries reported after attack in capital of volatile western China region
ap ^ | May 22, 2014

Posted on 05/21/2014 8:38:51 PM PDT by BenLurkin

Xinhua said the assailants plowed through crowds of shoppers in off-road vehicles and threw explosives out the window before crashing head-on in the early morning attack in the city of Urumqi. It said one of the vehicles then exploded and quoted an eyewitness as saying there had been up to a dozen blasts in all.

A statement from the Xinjiang regional government said the attack occurred at 7:50 a.m. and people had been killed and injured, but gave no further details.

"I heard four or five explosions. I was very scared. I saw three or four people lying on the ground," said Fang Shaoying, the owner of a small supermarket located near the scene of the blast.

Hmmm, "volatile".

Doesn't that mean "Muslim infested"?

I hope China decides to eliminate its Turkic Uighur Muslim population. 100% No remainder

This could be interesting, the muslins starting their shiite in a country that is not afraid to go medieval on their a$$es.
Time for some popcorn.

The Han Chinese have done similar things in their history when they felt that was an existential need.

They are sort of doing it now. They have been moving Han Chinese (the majority ethnic group) into Xinjiang for years now, and the Han have recently become the majority. I think a lot of this unrest is that the Amish see themselves as being "gentrified."

Not me. If the Uighurs mount a serious challenge to central control it can only draw China's resources away from its warlike intentions toward its neighbors.

Let the ancient barbarians fight among themselves, leave the rest of the world alone for awhile.

I'm sure it lost something in the translation.

When Jesus returns He wipes out all His enemies. He told the parable of the talents right before entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. The last part of the parable -

“Luke 19:26 [nobleman speaking] I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. 27 But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.”

I reckon none of the 31 people killed and critically injured even know what happened at Tienanmen Square, and they certainly didn’t take part in Tibet. They were just people shopping.

Qing Empire genocide:
After a series of inconclusive military conflicts that started in the 1680s, the Dzungars were subjugated by the Manchu-led Qing dynasty (1644–1911) in the late 1750s. According to Qing scholar Wei Yuan, 40 percent of the 600,000 Zunghar people were killed by smallpox, 20 percent fled to Russia or sought refuge among the Kazakh tribes and 30 percent were killed by the Qing army of Manchu Bannermen and Khalkha Mongols. Historian Michael Edmund Clarke has argued that the Qing campaign in 1757–58 "amounted to the complete destruction of not only the Zunghar state but of the Zunghars as a people."

#15” Hinckley: You got it right. Any major insurrection/terrorism inside Red China itself is a PLUS for America.

The Uighurs are a largely unknown entity but they are Moslems and I don’t know if they ever bothered anyone, unless Red China’s genocide in neighboring Tibet, incursions into India, subverting Nepal, and who knows what in Burma, Thailand, northern Laos, Malaysia (Indonesia 1965), Singapore, the Philippines (NPA), and Pakistan.

Let’s bleed Red China with a “death of a thousand cuts”. Why not? They are doing it to us. Red Chinese espionage is hardly ever mentioned in the mainstream media other than the recent cyberwarfare arrests (just the tip of an iceberg the size of the Empire State Building - reaches right into Congress, i.e. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Cal) for one).

“Uighurs??”

Descendants of what we call Mongols, such as the Hordes that rode out of the East under leaders such as Timur The Lame, Ghengis Kahn . . .

The game of “Mongols & Hans” goes back a long time, with lots of hate on both sides.
