Just yesterday, there was an attack that killed 16 officers of the People's Armed Police in far western China. There are many Islamic ethnic groups in western China that have been persecuted.

There is great tension in China. At some point, it will have to break.

Was it among the Turkic Uyghur minority in northwest China?

Wink Uighur

They are Uighur separatists. This has been going on for some time in Xinjiang, which briefly obtained independence on two separate occasions.

"Red China" is still a communist country. They still do Propaganda, with a capital "P". Their nothing but a false front. The people have no rights, only the ones that the government says they have. How many of them are allowed to criticize their government or the officials? What happened to the people from Tienanmen Square? They put up false walls around the city so the visitors don't see the sub-standard lives of the people. They're a "third world" country living a "lie" on the back of their people. Their government is a lousy joke!!

Default un-caring

the main reason is because peoples lifes here are good and do not care about other people. i think it is sad. i am not like that. however, there are a lot bigger problems than china. the darfur violence, poverty/hunger in lesser developed countries, and irans nuclear potential are more serious problems. while china keeps a tight grip on its people, it has loosened up a lot, and many people there live happy, prosperous lifes. most parts of the world are much poorer and less devoloped than china. im sure you knew that already.
