Attack on Chinese Police Station in Hotan, Xinjiang Leaves Trail of Deaths

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 18, 2011


There was an attack on a police station in Hotan, Xinjiang, Chinese northwest province. The province is huge, larger than California and filled with ethnic minorities who are Turks, kazaks or others by blood and do not look Chinese. The province is heavily Muslim and has been a pain in the butt of the communist party for quite some time.
The local media is mum about the specifics of the attack, but has said that a few of the attackers or ‘thugs’ have been killed.
This was reported 40 minutes ago by Xinhua.

        OUCH. This is going to go down in history as one of those massacres, and become a monument, once these guys get armed like the Karens, or the Timorese, or the Tamils, or Shiks, or the Achaians….What’s the PLA going to do send more thugs, and get stuck on what the papers call a Quagmire boondoggle?
