The Uighurs aren't nomads these days. They have mostly settled down and are congregating in townships.
China's preferential treatment of them are based on the general principle of establishing equanimity amongst the 56 ethnic groups for building a prosperous nation.
United we win, disunited we lose -- and this is much more so than in the case between China and Russia -- which are two entirely different nations with only a common geopolitical aim to share for the sake of their own survival, since both are multi-ethnic states and don't have the financial, military or political resources to do it alone.
The West knows this, and that's why the 7.5 Riots were meant as a sudden, below-the-belt blow to the image of tranquility and prosperity that China needs to do well financially.
To illustrate the importance of such an image --
Donald Trump has just lost a court case against a writer for defamation purposes.
The man claimed that Mr. Trump was not a billionaire because his total accrued assets did not go above a billion dollars -- in fact, it was merely 200-300 millioin dollars, which therefore did not qualify him for that title.
So Donald sued the man because liquidity is very important these days during the economic downturn -- cash is KING!
The image of Donald losing the court battle surrounding an image -- whether he was a billionaire or "just" a multi-millionaire -- was very devastating to him. He claims he had lost a good deal of money merely because of that claim, and I believe him.
So the same thing applies to China's image of stability.
The country is almost sure that it will achieve its goal of 8 percent GDP growth this year -- as was announced by Premier Wen Jiabao as I had explained in the post on China becoming an epicenter for car manufacturing.
The reason why Wen was so confident as he boldly announced the target growth rate as achievable was premised on the entire nation working as one under stable conditions.
That's why the likes of Rebiya resorted to smearing tactics using lies and concoctions to incite riots.
Fortunately the central government was fast and furious in its response, and now the small fire that could have spread into a conflagration has mostly been extinguished.
This was achieved by allowing the Western media access to the premises right after the 7.5 riots to see for themselves what was burnt and destroyed, who was killed and what ethnicity, where and where those random murders took place (57 of the 186 deaths occurred in the back alleys, which meant that these were faceless premeditated murders carried out by orders from a foreign source -- for all the murders and property destruction had occurred on the same day both inside and outside the country, and the evidence was compiled by CCTV in a logical sequence comprising all the intercepted telephone calls, internet disinformation and emails from Rebiya and the World Uighur Congress.
And the fact that this group was bankrolled by the American Congress meant that the real murderers of the 186 people most of whom were Hans were the 666 American congressmen and congresswomen -- fockers all who should have kept their dirty fingers at home repair the economy instead of reaching out to molest the Old Country.
Next I will upload pictures with short comments.
