Bomb Blast Rocks Train Station Hours After China's "Fists & Daggers... Strike-First" Warning To Terrorists

Tyler Durden's picture


Police are the "fists and daggers" in the fight against terrorism, China's President Xi Jinping said on a trip to the western Xinjiang region where authorities say members of a Muslim minority are waging a violent separatist campaign. As Reuters reports, this is the same region that sufferred the knife-wielding terrorist attack in the city of Kunming that killed 29 people and injured 140. However, his warning seems to have sparked further action - though not confirmed as a terrorist attack - as a blast occurred at a railway station in Urumqi, capital of northwest China’s Xinjiang region. Details about the blast and casualties are sketchy but local reports suggest up to 50 injured.

Xi Jinping sends a warning...

"The Kashgar region is the front line in anti-terrorism and maintaining social stability," the official Xinhua news agency citied Xi as telling paramilitary police in the Silk Road city of Kashgar in western Xinjiang that has been at the center of much of the unrest.


"The situation is grim and complicated. The local level police stations are fists and daggers," Xi said.


The report, carried widely in state media, showed photographs of Xi touring police facilities.


"You must have the most effective means to deal with violent terrorists," Xi said at a police station where he was pictured inspecting a wall of various kinds of truncheons.


"Sweat more in peacetime to bleed less in wartime," he said.

And this happens:

As Bloomberg reports, an explosion occurred at about 7 p.m. today near the south railway station in Urumqi, the capital of western China’s Xinjiang region, prompting police to evacuate people nearby, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Ambulances and police cars were sent to the scene, the official news agency said, citing unidentified government officials. Xinhua said it didn’t yet have details about the blast or possible casualties.


Train services have been suspended at the station, Xinhua said, citing a policeman on the scene. Police have cordoned off all entrances to the station square and armed officers have been deployed, it said.


President Xi Jinping vowed to deploy a “strike-first” strategy against terrorism in Xinjiang, Xinhua reported earlier today, citing Xi’s comments during a trip to the region from April 27 to today.

It's Uighurs, pronounced 'wiggers'. Was just in China, and that's how they pronounce it. I was also told they've started deporting muslims from the state that Kunming is in back to the north west state they come from, and also moving Han chinese into that state to dilute the muslims and their culture. 

It was only a question of 'when', not 'if', muslims started attacking the chinese.

And now, those muslims have themselves a problem...

though the divide and conquer folks have been working overtime to confuse the truth, Christians, Jews and Muslims all share a common belief in God the Creator...  "Allah" is simply the arabic word for God... the same God.

Same God?  Just a different day for worship...


In any case, those muslims had better not ask any questions!  One should blindy follow such silly religions without questioning them.  That is called "faith".  Blind Faith.

“Believers! Do not ask questions about things which if made plain and declared to you, may vex you, causing you trouble. Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account they lost their faith and became disbelievers.” (Qur’an 5:101 – 102)

Muhammed liked both the Jewish and Christian Religions and borrowed myths from both:

Muhammad's 'Pick'n'Mix' Message


As the birth of literacy in a pre-literate society the Koran contains no direct quotes from either the Old or New Testaments –

but the fables are painfully familiar.

I've been wondering if the Uighurs were Al-CIA-duh.  No doubt they have legitimate grievances; most of the Deep State clients do, or they wouldn't be in the marketplace.  But we always screen out anybody who might be the least bit reasonable and amenable to compromise.  Or unwilling to, let's just say, plant a bomb in a train station.

Have a friend who traveled in China a few years ago for nearly a month. He said the ONLY vendors who didn't try to cheat him were Uighurs. Of course they must have truly believed in their religion, for most of the Muslims I have encountered, not all but most, in the US have been like the Christians, all show and no go. One might propose that if a person TRULY believes in God they WOULD NOT treat their fellow human beings like crap, or slaughter them for that matter. One thing about Muslims as opposed to Christians, for a significant minority they DO care about their fellows, unlike Christians who, at least here in the US, seem to be ALL OUT for Amnesty for the INVADERS and could care LESS about their fellow White Christians, I say this for my own church as well, the RC.
