China's "Strike First" Anti-Terrorist Policy Fails Again - Explosion Hits China's Xinjiang Region, Multiple Deaths

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It appears yet again that China's "strike first" anti-terrorism policy has failed as explosions have rocked Urumqi, the capital city of China's unrest-plagued Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region, killing (and injuring) multiple (but unknown) people. Social media suggests 2 SUVs entered the crowded market in the center of the city ploughing down onlookers, throwing explosives from the cars, before a blast was heard. One witness noted that the cars were painted with "uighur" language slogans. Flames and heavy smoke were seen nearby, police are on the scene and the 2 SUVs are being removed. There is no official death or injury count as of yet.

 

 

Via Western Australia Today,

Social Media witnesses...

One witness, 76-year-old Fang Zhaoying, was tending her daughter’s grocery store near the market when she heard a few loud explosions and saw lying on the ground.

 

“The blasts were loud as anything,” she said via telephone. “I went outside to look and saw people lying on the  ground, before people told me to go back inside.”

 

Ms Fang said the explosion occurred during the morning peak for the market, which was known to be more commonly frequented by Han Chinese. She estimated there were at least hundreds lining the streets at the time of the blast.

 

Another purported witness, Zhang Xiaoning, posted on China’s Twitter-like Weibo that two vehicles drove through the crowded market streets, ploughing through shoppers, before hearing several explosions blasts soon after.

 

“I managed to react quickly and jumped out of the way,” he posted. “I looked back, and [people] were all lying on the road.”

 

He said the second car he saw speed through was painted  with “Uighur language” slogans and had triangular flags stuck  to it. His posts were swiftly removed by internet censors.

Social Unrest is on the rise...

Unlike most of the rest of China which is predominantly Han Chinese, many parts of Xinjiang -- an expansive region
which shares borders with eight countries including Russia, Afghanistan and Pakistan -- remain largely home to the native Uighurs, a predominantly Muslim, Turkic-speaking ethnic group. According to a 2010 census, Xinjiang's 22 million population comprises of 43 per cent Uighur, 40 per cent Han Chinese, with the rest made up of other minority groups.

But fast-paced development and an associated influx of Han Chinese economic migrants has seen larger cities in Xinjiang, including Urumqi, transform almost unrecognisably, sparking tensions among Uighurs who chafe at government policies they say discriminate against them and restrict their religious freedoms. 

Xinjiang has been plagued by ethnic unrest, with China attributing a series of escalating knife and bomb attacks in recent months to separatist Uighur militants from Xinjiang.

Last month an explosion killed three and injured at least 79 at a central train station in Urumqi, in an attack that coincided with the high-profile visit of President Xi Jinping to the region.

 On March 1, knife-wielding attackers slashed indiscriminately at passengers at a train station in Kunming, in south-western Yunnan province, killing 29 and wounding more than 130.  

It seems the "fists and daggers" of local police are not working.

Internet censors are rapidly removing images from Weibo but here are some...

This is yet another item supporting my contention that the USA does not have to worry about the BRICs.  ALL of them have big internal problems, bigger than our own.  Demographics in the case of scary Russia and scary China.

India and Brazil?  Please.  Brazil is working on not screwing up hosting the World Cup (spending billion$ on those two boondoggles).  India may, way in the future, rise to become great, they are a democracy that might be able to work out their own fundamental problems.

The way the USA falls is if we let it, by our own internal rot and corruption (very possible).  It will (likely) not be due to Russia and China doing a NatGas deal, however large.  

Besides, who would want CHINA as a neighbor for the long run...?

How do CIA get the weapons and explosive to the muslim in that area? Better yet, let's call for a Jihad and import Arab fighters to aid their Muslim brothers in Western China.
It's time those shit eating Chinese learn to respect human beings, Tibetans etc. Everyone needs to have a little space to live, not just the Hans Chinese, the only people on the planet who can think of scooping shit out of sewer to eat.
Anyhow, this is just getting interesting.

How? by using the brains of CIA officers, well-trained field operatives, lots and lots of money, connections, weapons, drugs, dedicated and classified transport equipment, and the help of the recipients ... to name a few.

 

It's understandable that you can't figure out how, since you don't have any of that, especially the brains, money, and real experience.

SUV’s and vans don't kill people, people kill people.

 

I have remarked in the past that a dedicated maniac can wreak more havoc with a good, gassed up 4WD on a busy and crowded venue that any similar maniac can with whatever explosives or weaponry (belted, bladed or firearms) he can personally carry --  open or concealed.

 

That goes for many things that roll, fly or float at speed.

 

When it comes to crowded venues, large populous cities are target rich environments.

 

The problem is not the implements.. it is the prevailing policy.

Oh, please.  They cause the bulk of their problems themselves, whatever little scummy games our CIA (et al) is up to means very little.

China:

-- Bad demographics caused by CHINESE one-child policy

-- Big supporters of Iran and N Korea (uh, your friends?)

-- World's largest polluters, air & water

Russia:

-- It's not the USA that could cut-off Europe's NatGas supplies...

-- Open your yap vs, Putin and it's off to Siberia for you (or you die)

-- Russian corruption is even worse than ours...

heh,

I'd call it "culture" rather than "society". . . cultures are guided by the top down, abetted with advertising products, sold for profits.

so consider:  the "women" culture is saturated with personal amendment-products, sold in ladies-mags. . . who to turn to for more $$'s earned?  push the peacocks into purchasing! 

and dandy-ism isn't new, just revived with bigger sales targets.  the inherent attraction of men-to-men rarely goes away, with "women" being the objectified sex-target, no homo bro! - and yet. . . only men earn each others respect.

Rome fell upon itSelf in the End. . . echoes.

 

((ps: like cultured-gender is like voting - you can *pick a side* - or you can opt out of the whole story.  no, really.))

Leraconteur - I guess I'm your huckleberry and downvoted you. There are lots of intelligent people that didn't win the vagina lottery. Many started small businesses and are innovators.

The social contract was completely broken in 2008. Lawlessness rules. Those without means to afford to live would be doing mass protests, no Internet in other words and the outlet would change. Of course the sentiment is negative here in America there are now two sets of laws and we're returning to feudalism.

The result of people unable to afford to live is violence. Use violence to suppress it you get more of the same and the costs of security and loss of opportunity spreads to the ruling class.

Alternative media has arisen because mainstream media works with governments. They don't highlight corruption because of fear of loss. The reporting is on politics near all the time.

What your really pointing out is a market opportunity to reconnect government and the people, neutral news reporting so at least we all can get facts and make up our own minds instead of being steered. The people were steered into debt and paying a military to protect trade which did not benefit them. Now that they speak up and emulate the same methods of government in steering your upset?

Government wanted everybody in fear to enrich themselves and they did. Special interests and government used divide and conquer politics. The results are a population which is paranoid and unable to identify friend from foe. The fish rots from the head down. Now Americans emulate the values of our government which are sociopathic tendencies. It is a jungle out here and the ape man knows who the jailers are. Not good.

I did try to introduce a neutral news service in 2007 and I had done some work for Jeb Bush. He liked the idea and recommended I have a meeting with Pete Peterson. But the response was "we don't know you". I wasn't part of the club. So that attitude carries on to today. So either fill the market void or sit down and shut up.

The Internet is a great leveler of vagina lotteries. If it takes a couple decades of exposure to solid facts amidst selfies oh well. You do know the best actors, musicians, authors and scientists are bi-polar don't you?
I know some they are brilliant to speak to online and channel there gifts well there but I admit I do not like spending time with them outside of that.

The US and Israel have been sponsors AND perpetrators of terrorism for a long time.

 

If you are in the US, you would have very limited accurate coverage of state terrorism by Israel in the Middle East. The mainstream media simply will not touch Israel, for obvious reasons.

Similarly, all covert and overt US murders / assassinations / military operations in Libya, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Venezuela, Ukraine etc have been terrorist actions. What have you been hearing from the mainstream media?

Do you have any doubt that 9/11 was a high-tech terrorist operation plotted and executed by a small group of highly placed and powerful / influential / well-connected figures in the US (and perhaps Israel and the UK)?

Whenever there is a large scale terrorist operation (like 9/11), the usual suspects (and likely culprits) would be (1) the US, (2) Israel, (3) the UK, and (4) any combination of the three.

"Does it still work when you call an entire country a terr'ist?"

Yes. Terrorism was the trigger of WW1. Austria-Hungary's leader was assassinated by a terrorist group called the Black Hand that had links to the Serbian government. Austria-Hungary blamed the entire country of Serbia for this attack. So, yes, entire countries are held accountable when terrorism strikes.

That's a very good observation.   Muslim flow from Russia into China, mmm...  IMO, the current "alliance" between Russia and China is strictly for short-term convenience.  They can try to take down the dollar, but it is only US that can do it (by our own policies and failures).  China will likely want Siberia for themselves.  Will we listen when Russia comes to us begging for help in 2025?  Ahh, nope!

This stuff happens all the time out there. It is just not reported.

It's called the "Big West."

Purportedly if you get convicted with the right sized crime in China, you have the option of being sent to the Big West or going to prison.  Most folks pick prison.

That place is hard on the Han.

German Foreign Minister Steinmeier chucked a fit when he was interrupted during a speech by anti-Fascist demonstrators who were accusing the German regime of supporting Fascists in the Ukraine.

its only a matter of time before the u.s. and israel themselves become legitimate state sponsors of terrorism to counter the recent shift in balance of power. Govt sanctioned harrassment in various and violent forms against russia and china will be a growth industry! I just hope they dont recruit homeless, non-ideological arabs to do their dirty work. They get a bad enough rap as it is.

I was wondering what happened to your post earlier after I had replied. (A dot replaced the original post. LOL) So you've moved it here.

 

========================================================================

The US and Israel have been sponsors AND perpetrators of terrorism for a long time.

 

If you are in the US, you would have very limited accurate coverage of state terrorism by Israel in the Middle East. The mainstream media simply will not touch Israel, for obvious reasons.

Similarly, all covert and overt US murders / assassinations / military operations in Libya, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Venezuela, Ukraine etc have been terrorist actions. What have you been hearing from the mainstream media?

Do you have any doubt that 9/11 was a high-tech terrorist operation plotted and executed by a small group of highly placed and powerful / influential / well-connected figures in the US (and perhaps Israel and the UK)?

Whenever there is a large scale terrorist operation (like 9/11), the usual suspects (and likely culprits) would be (1) the US, (2) Israel, (3) the UK, and (4) any combination of the three.

Right napper, though we well know the stereotypical american views such as conspiracy theorizing. We can present hard evidence but most influencial media sources will choose to bury it rather than have it see the light of day. Thus, the masses remain ignorant and uninformed.

We can all count on more illicit activity (terrorist or otherwise) directed against china and russia to disrupt their relationships going forward, and it will be interesting to see who gets the blame/takes responsibiltiy for it

Deaths are most of their own people. Looks like China needs to hire anti-ter experts from Israel and build a gaza strip in that province.

You only need some die-hard brown zealots funded by foreign agencies to create deaths and terrors across those innocent civilians, be it in public park, train station, in the market, or any place the terrorists may create havoc.

It's up to Chinese govt entirely to go all out and take all the necessary measures to deny such atrocities towards those innocent civilians. Perhaps they can learn some lessons from Russian in Chechen.

They must exterminate the terrorist roots by any means.

Well not really a surprise. The Chinese want to invade everywhere and what do they expect. This is just the beginning in a few years you will see this in other parts of the world with large Chinese populations. I am waiting for it to happen in Africa, there are so many Chinese there sooner or later that will boil over. Stay in your own country you polluted it and over crowded it then you want to spread out all over the place. This is what happens.

It makes me laugh the way people call the US government morons for doing this or that, that they couldn't organise a blow-job in a whore house, yet simultaneously you ascribe to those very same retards the most sophisticated, subtle, international conspiracies imaginable, with them controlling every aspect of what actors in every other country do on a permanent basis.

According to commenters, the US government is responsible for everything that happens in the world today. Everything. Nobody else has any thoughts or ideas of their own, and can only react to what Americans say or do. That's the message from the commenters on here. Step back a second and think about how ridiculous that appears.

And so to the "CIA false flag attack in China". Ever considered, for just one, solitary fucking second, that's all I'm asking here - that the muslims who carried it out may - just may - have their own thoughts or ideas as to why they carried it out?

To answer your last question: It's possible.

It's "what's more likely" that's being discussed here.

More importantly, you need to remember that the various opinions / comments you read come from different people. You cannot attribute these various different comments to a single, abstract poster or group of posters who represents everybody or some like-minded group of "conspiracy theorists" who present their comments as simultaneously true.

You also need to remember that even by unclassified official records, the US has engaged in large scale false flag operations before, e.g. the Gulf of Tonkin "incident" that ultimately led to the Vietnam War, costing millions of Vietnamese lives and tens of thousands of American lives, plus over a Trillion dollar expense to the taxpayers, while enriching the weapons suppliers in the military industrial complex.

Is the  US government competent in running the country? You should be able to answer that easily: NO, based on the rapidly declining living standards ALONE (setting aside the constellation of more serious problems).

Is the US government still engaging in reckless, wasteful military spending and illegal wars abroad? Yes.

Did the US accuse Iraq of developing and amassing WMDs? Yes. Was it true? NO.

Is the US govt trying to contain Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, etc? Yes. Is there any legitimate reason for doing it? No. Is it succeeding? No.

...

 

Different people within the US government are running different things, with different results.

"It's possible."

How generous of you. I'm sure muslims will be thrilled that you think "it's possible" that they have their own ideas in their own brains (imagine that?) about social, economic and political governance, and how they see the world, that - shock, horror - have nothing to do with the non-muslims' way of doing things.

That's not the question I was answering. My answer was specifically for whether it's possible that the terrorist attack in China was committed by muslims because of their own beliefs or ideas, as opposed to under the direction of CIA.

You are not reading carefully and are shifting questions and focus.

No, that's not right, Napper. My last question, clearly, was:

"Ever considered, for just one, solitary fucking second, that's all I'm asking here - that the muslims who carried it out may - just may - have their own thoughts or ideas as to why they carried it out?"

You responded:

"to answer your last question: it's possible"

Very clear. You're conceding it's "possible" that muslims could act outside of direction from the CIA, and instead according to their religious teachings and texts.

Let me ask you - do you think the muslims who ran down an off duty British soldier in a busy London street, then proceeded to all but behead him, gutting him - all in broad daylight in the afternoon in front of hundreds of witnesses; actively sought out video cameras to explain explicitly that islamic teachings and texts commanded them to do it, and cited verses from the Koran to justify what they had just done; waited around specifically for armed police to arrive, then attacked the police so they would kill them and they would therefore die as martyrs - were acting under the control of the CIA, and not doing it for their own reasons? Is that "possible"?

I'm just wondering...was that a false flag attack as well?

While I was among those saying false flag, I did not ascribe that to the CIA, or USGov generally. 

Looks like a ChiCom false flag to me.  Use your own forces from out of the area (no local loyalties) to credibly blame your adversary for a despicable crime against the public in an already destabilized area so that public will be more likely to support your aggressive repression of the adversary.  This is very old anti-insurgency tactics, and doesn't require a lot of administrative skill.
