b-b-q muslims?  chinese turn flamethrowers on muslim group in cave

Screw the “rights” groups.

The Chinese will and should do whatever it takes to secure the stability of their homeland.  Doesn’t matter if we don’t care much for their form of govt.
At this moment, we aren’t in a live gun fight with the lice who say they are Jihadists, and here the Chinese are. OK, they say they are but, just cos some rights group says otherwise, doesn’t mean the Chinese are lying.

So good for them. 
Well done China.  (well done? now that’s a hoot)

Here’s the headline.

Forces say they initially used grenades and tear gas to target attackers

Beijing says it is hunting ‘foreign-led extremists’ in Xinjiang
Rights groups say unrest due to controls on Muslim Uighurs

By Brendan Cole For Mailonline and Reuters

Chinese forces used a flamethrower to force more than 10 ‘terrorists’ from a cave in the western Xinjiang region in the hunt for what Beijing has called foreign-led extremists.

China said security forces had recently killed 28 members of a group that carried out a deadly attack at a coal mine in Aksu in September, the first official mention of the incident reported by Radio Free Asia about two months ago.

In its account, which could not be independently verified, the official People’s Liberation Army Daily said armed police had tracked the attackers into the mountains ‘like eagles discovering their prey’.

Rights groups say China has never presented convincing evidence of the existence of a cohesive militant group fighting the government.

Much of the unrest, they argue, is due to frustration at controls on the culture and religion of the Muslim Uighur people who live in Xinjiang.

Beijing vehemently denies accusations of rights abuses, though independent verification of the situation in Xinjiang is hard because of tight government controls on visits by foreign reporters.

WHO ARE THE UIGHURS IN CHINA AND WHAT ARE THEIR ASPIRATIONS?

The Uighurs are Muslims who see themselves as more culturally and ethnically tied to Central Asian nations than to China

They are an indigenous group who speak a Turkic language

They live in the Xinjiang region in western China and have had a long history of clashing with China’s central authorities.

The Uighurs’ case for greater autonomy strengthened after the collapse of the USSR and they saw independent Muslim states arise in Central Asia

Beijing is accused by some rights groups of suppressing demonstrations by the Uighurs

In a statement, spokesman for exile group the World Uighur Congress Dilxat Raxit said: ‘The Paris attacks gave China a political excuse to brazenly use flamethrowers to clamp down on unarmed Uighurs who have no just legal protection and who seek to avoid arrest.’

Senior Chinese officials have increasingly described the security challenges in Xinjiang as an important front in the global fight against terrorism.

Western nations, however, have been reluctant to cooperate in China’s anti-terrorism campaign there, nervous about being implicated in possible rights abuses.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
