Imperial China Says ” Destroy the Uyghurs “

By Phantom On September 28th, 2018

It is only in recent years that I’ve read much about the area that China calls Xinjiang, and which the locals call East Turkestan.

East Turkestan has about 19 million population spread over a vast area. It is a province of China, against the will of very many of its ( Muslim ) population.

There has been Uyghur Muslim terrorism, in East Turkestan and in China itself. China’s response has has been merciless.

Against terrorists, against terrorist symps, apparently against the entire population that is in any way muslim.

UN and other reports speak of one million Uyghur being detained in Chinese concentration camps for ” re-education ” The numbers boggle the mind.

The aim of China is to exterminate Uyghur culture, as they simultaneously squash Tibetan culture in Tibet.

These cultural exterminations are among the most important stories in the world, but you’d never know it by reading most news outlets.

Navel gazing Yanks and America facing Euros think that the most important story in the world is the confirmation of some lousy judge somewhere, and recollections of possible bad actions by teenagers in the 1980s.

In a sane world, that story wouldn’t be among the top 25 world stories, but its all you hear about now.

  1. The aim of China is to exterminate Uyghur culture, as they simultaneously squash Tibetan culture in Tibet.

    As only the Left know how to do.

    These cultural exterminations are among the most important stories in the world, but you’d never know it by reading most news outlets.

    As happened during the Communist era, especially under, Uncle Joe Stalin where no wrong was ever done in the sycophants eyes.

    What is happening is the same as that in Burma – The removal of a problem. Not nice. But as I always say; “Their house, their rules !”

  2. This isn’t a left or right thing in my opinion.

    Han China won’t tolerate any instability in its border areas, or even well beyond the border areas.

    That is why China is using murderous, genocidal methods to the west, as it expands its sea borders, all across the ” China Sea “- another hugely underreported story.

    The Tibetans and Uyghurs don’t see themselves as Chinese at all. China is in their house.

  3. Good post.

  4. Well said, Phantom.

    The Uighurs are oft forgotten but their plight is dire. The alien Chinese plantation of their land is much worse than the situation facing the Palestinians we obsess about here in Europe.

  5. The areas are so remote from most of the world, and China so near, and so powerful, that the government / army / police has a free hand to do whatever they wish.

  6. //Navel gazing Yanks and America facing Euros think that the most important story in the world is the confirmation of some lousy judge somewhere, and recollections of possible bad actions by teenagers in the 1980s. //

    Right.

    The virtually total destruction of established Tibetan culture in China is another almost forgotten story.
    You hear people say they would never travel to Russia because of the lack of press freedom; I even heard a guy say recently he’d never travel to the US because of capital punishment there. But everyone would just love to travel to China. It’s the rising star and a big driver of world growth, so it gets a free pass.

  7. China doesn’t hold all the cards, but it holds many. Including a fairly good geographical position.

    It is much stronger than it was, it will continue to get relatively stronger at a faster rate than the US, or than its hollowed out neighbor Russia.

  8. It isn’t near to us so ultimately it gets less attention. If someone in France was committing ethnic cleansing and genocide we would care about it.

    When terrorists murdered a hundred people in Paris more people cared about it than when those same sort of terrorists murdered hundreds in Baghdad. Or when someone killed dozens in Manchester more people cared about it than when those same terrorists murdered hundreds in Kabul.

    If it is nearer (not just geographically but culturally and emotionally) then we feel it harder.

  9. I wouldn’t put it past them to be murdering people in the tens or hundreds of thousands

    This whole thing looks more like distraction theatre for what’s been going on.

    It’s good to see that Phantom can be persuaded to be right for a change. Here’s something else, and it could explain the rabid denunciations of Russia by corporate media given that corporate-agribusiness (Gates and Buffet’s pets) are losing a potential market:

    https://www.rt.com/business/435219-putin-organic-produce-regulation/

    President Vladimir Putin has signed a new law regulating production, storing and transportation of organic produce in Russia. The decree bans agrochemicals, pesticides, antibiotics growth stimulators and hormones.

    The new law, previously approved by both chambers of the Russian Parliament, will enter force on January 1, 2020. The regulation introduces references to “organic produce,”“manufacturer of organic produce” and “organic agriculture,” as well as sets control over producing, storing, labeling, selling and transporting goods of the kind.

    Russia looks to become top producer of organic food while EU sees future in GMO

    So more divergence between Russia and EU/US (unless DT has something lined up) for the EU and US are in the grip of Bayer-Monsanto and shall poison the environment and those who can’t afford safe food.

  11. Good post about a little known issue Phantom.

    It’s like reality TV for the politics nerds. I was really beginning to lose the will to live following that mammoth ‘This Is Us’ thread.

  12. If Russia starts creating some sort of economy for itself, I’m in favor of it.

    I don’t think that I’ve seen any Russian product in a store over the past 20 years.

    Even the Stoly vodka you get here I think is distilled in Latvia.

    Meanwhile all here would have dozens of Chinese made products, now.

    Would you ever find out? And if you did, would you care?

    Take the recent example of the Rohingya muslims in Burma – this lot have been pissing on locals for decades in the usual conquering-muslim fashion, so when a Noble Peace Prize winner set her soldiers loose and drove the muslims back home to their source in Bangladesh, the BBC and half of Hampstead were aghast – but I don’t care.

    Bigger question – why should I care?

    Good post. And well said Phantom.

  15. The way I see it we have to start with a benchmark critical observation: FACT: “At 7.3+ Billion souls the planet is over populated to sustain the resources”. Let things play out in China and the rest of the world without injecting sobby-weepy emotion and along with Ebola, mass starvation, and various armed conflicts maybe this ethnic cleansing will help tilt the planet’s parasite population back to a manageable level.
