Get it together Uyghurs.  Pick a spelling and stick with it.  Find a spokesman whose name we can pronounce, then learn how to make bombs.

The media rule of thumb when it comes to Middle-Eastern and Central-Asian names appears to be Anglicize it however you see fit on a case by case basis.

Still, it's strange to think of Chinese Muslims.  Things are going to get very interesting over there during the next decade as many of the traditionally opressed ethnic minorities start pushing back against the ruling powers-that-be in the big Eastern cities.

It's crazy, but China is racially and culturally diverse, despite everyone being Chinese.  The Brits have a way of turning huge tracts of land into a single nation.  See: China, India, Australia, Canada and USA.

Describing the violence as "riots," Xinhua said that a police station, government buildings and a construction site were targeted in the attack which took place at 6 a.m. local time (6 p.m. Tuesday ET).

Interesting that they're describing it as riots. They usually describe it as terrorism.

Only because religiously illiterate idiots have conditioned the production of Anglo-American mass broadcast media. Islam was in China before the end of the first century after the death of the Prophet Muhammad.

There are different kinds of Chinese Muslims, too. There's the Hui, which is an ethnic minority that are nearly indistinguishable from the Han majority except for the fact that they are predominantly Muslim. Then there's the Uyghurs, which this story is about. They're not related to the Han or most of the other ethnic groups of China - their ethnic background is mostly Turkic.

Assault Knives!

Knives don't kill people, the sharp ends do.

This changes everything. Now the US no longer has a problem with gun violence. Thanks, subby!

Oh Subs. I was for gun control. But your headline has convinced me I was foolish. Sign me up for that NRA membership!

"The region, which borders Afghanistan and Pakistan, has been the scene of numerous violent incidents in recent years amid tensions between the large population of Muslim Uighurs and the ruling Han ethnic group..."

What is it with Muslims and brutal and massive bloodshed? Such peaceful folk..

Everything is an assault knife to you KNIFE KNABBERS!  Sorry, but I will continue to exercise my rights to carry my knives.  I am packing a kirpan, a switchblade, and a concealed cleaver at all times and I will not hesitate to defend my life, liberty, and property from all who seek to take my rights asunder.

Does that make you mad Cutlass Coveters?  Getting upset Sword Snatchers?  Well, too bad.  I'm going to head to the Dagger Range right now and work on my knifery skills to prepare for the time that the jackbooted knife thugs come after my weapons.

I am ever vigilant in the face of knife tyranny.

Totally outclassed by the Mongols, IMHO. ( although, those people haven't been down with the ultraviolence for a few centuries now, IIRC)

I would hate to chink how bad it could have been if they had guns. This thread would have taken a totally differnt slant.

Of course this incident did happen in a 'no knife zone'. Hitler would of been proud of such an event which took place as it did today Hitler.

Oh, now you've done it. Now we're going to get all those clowns who cite Stalin and Mao as atheists who were mass-murderers, completely ignoring the transparently obvious fact that those assholes weren't killing  in the name ofatheism.

Yes, because the region of China was and always had been a loose confederate of local states before the Brits came along and created the nation of China.

A gun can only kill as many humans as you can carry ammo for.  A knife can kill indefinitely.

You're the least funny troll on Fark and must say how absolutely annoying your posts are.

Assuming you are twelve, I hope you grow up and realize the Internet isn't a playground for children.

Guns, or knives, will sit and collect dust until they rust away without causing harm unless a human with bad intent picks one up.

So with that in mind, how does the U.S. have a 'gun problem.'

China has over 20 million Muslims.
