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.

The towel heads definitely have a problem now.

No, I heard they are up against wiggers, just like here in the states. Hip hop influence has gone global and Bieber fever is the new opium.

 

I think they say Uigers? pronounced the same though, If i see some scrawny white boys in baggy pants in my neighborhood you better beliebe I'm going to "see something say something"

Why do I smell the stink of the USSA's hand in this?

 

With their Ukraine adventure going down in flames, are the state department wacko's doubling down by attacking China?

pay back for China supporting Russia.  bet on it.  terrorism is how the USSA spreads democrazy afterall.

Latina Lover's picture

I get that our self styled USSA elites are power mad psychopaths, but are they that insane that they would start a second front war against China?  This does not end well.

Sweat more in peacetime to bleed less in wartime.

That fortune cookie writer has a rather grim outlook, bet the lucky number was 13.

The looser can open war on all fronts  all the way, to bring as much as possible down with him.

john39's picture

just a little reminder to the Chinese leadership that unrest could suddenly pop up at any time...  helpful reminder to toe the line and stay out of the cabal's way around the world.   and yeah, sooner or later, all this karma is going come ripping back in a truly ugly way.

+1.  This is the "intelligence" services at work, whose job is not intelligence, but rather spreading death, mayhem, and destruction.  For profit.

cue the provocateurs

d'ya think they dose the local water supply?

or is that even too Strangelove for them?

ElvisDog's picture

No way. The U.S. attacks/destabilizes proxy states like Libya and Ukraine. Even the U.S. neocons aren't crazy enough to stage terrorist attacks inside China.

svayambhu108's picture

The neocons were not but the neoclowns are that crazy.

Well we all know that Islam is a religion of peace, and no violence has ever been done by its followers based on teachings from the Koran. So yeah it was probally CIA OR MOSSAD.

LFMayor's picture

LOL!, Dude, I just got looks for breaking silence on that one.  So they some copycat artist, Rice Green-Tea?

Yo' Rice, cool out
YO FUCK THAT

I'm hot, I'm putting Uighers in cots
some get knocked out
Some just get shot...

johngerard's picture

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...

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

But but but... religion of peace!!!

Totentänzerlied's picture

Yeah the fact that they're Muslim somehow overrides the fact that they're treated like shit in Chinese society and have long-standing and justified grievances with the CCP and the Han ethnic majority. They should just sit down, shut up, and buy some new iToys.

Well, now they can strike second. Second is not so bad.

Second makes one the #1 loser.

I would imagine that was what I had in mind when I posted; but thanks for clarifying the obvious.

Wouldn't it be 'Rerease The Clacken?'

Saudis sold their religion for money.

Now if we could just get the purchaser to dismantle it and burn the fragments; that would be some real progress.

I don't think the terrorists in China are living by the promise of hashtag.

 Strange how the timing is so precise with the Chinese backing of Russia yesterday!!  Should be good for US equities though, maybe another 100 points in to space??

"Sweat more in peacetime to bleed less in wartime,"

I am sure the beauty of this comment is lost in translation. He may have been channeling Paine

"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace."

Russia and China are going to wipe them out.

Bad move. The little moon god needs more virgins stat.

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.

TPTB_r_TBTF's picture

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.

Totentänzerlied's picture

Same could be said of communists. And neo-liberals. And neo-cons. And all statists. Their god is the state, and they dare not question it. This is called faith.

Wow, I see that the CIA have expanded their area of operation.

They must have been funding these terrists for quite some time.

Lucky those Chinese Police armed up.  And just in time too!  Look what's happening! 

This entirely justifies full militarisation of the Police force.

SAT 800's picture

Here, too. In case you didn't notice. But you probably did.

The Amurikans have their Boston Strong-arm, now the Chinese get their own Fisting and Daggers.  Stock market buy signal for the Military/Security sector.

medium giraffe's picture

Go MIC!  But don't you feel safer too?  I think our Police should get bayonets like the Chinese, ideal for taking care of Golden Retrievers.

Emergency Ward's picture

Nothing like a little more safety at the expense of Rover.  Bayonets would be good for SWAT raids on dangerous libertoid commie potheads with overdue library books.

Should we hazard a guess that President Obama's handlers are sending the Chinese a clear resounding message that the military bases are going in the Philippines and that the Senkaku(s) belong to Japan?

Or did Erik Prince of Blackwater/Xi/Academi/Greystone just get the phone call from President Jinping that the little logistics support contract for West Africa is "off"???

Falconsixone's picture

Sounds like a new sexual reference. "Fists and Daggers". Someone ask berry the fairy if she likes it that way.

Looks like a good catalyst for U.S. American stawk indexes to rise on just in time! Shit was RED there for a minute! WHEW!

Help me out here. Is this a  branch of Al queda or are they like a franchise?   Does the CIA collect franchise fee from every Al queda branch opened or does the pentagon collect the fee?

Regardless it appears that we all have a common enemy in the never ending global war on terror. Too bad most people don't know who the real enemy is. 

Infinite QE's picture

All franchises. Franchisee potentials have to go through significant training before being accepted.

First is six-nine months at Gitmo.
