I wonder if the Chinese gov understands how serious these attacks may be. Of course hurting innocent people is always serious but the new type of pattern also seem to indicate organization, compared to the earlier attacks. Someone who understands systematic terror has taken control. One or two more successful attacks and I guess the real hardcore islamists from other countries will start to arrive in China. If Syria cools down then they might arrive in big numbers. Maybe China is about to get a painful lesson of the new global world. Mr Xi, this is not about a crime that the police can solve. This is about people who have lost everything they value by your hands and now they are desperate enough to do something about it. Unfortunately I think this is only the beginning.

because it happened in china. had this happened in the US, there wouldn't be any quotation marks.

No Im referring to the Chinese and the Uighur within Chinas current borders. The hardcore islamists has taken it easy with China so far but with Chinas increased power comes interests from others. Of course the US has a solid position as bad guy number one among islamists but I think the increased attention on the Uighur issue in China may soon qualify China as bad guy number two. The south China sea problem and the increasing problems in Africa will pour into to this over time. If it develops according to these prediction, within a year or two there should be increased external financing and as a consequence more advanced weapons used in attacks. As stated earlier the intensity or build up will also depend on other war zones.
