This will be short but not sweet, as I am trying to watch basketball, use my ipad, get this done, time running out in all directions.
Notice how from the USA perspective terrorism only applies if something happens to it (or an ally), otherwise, it is something else entirely, but not terror. Well, whatever, the old one person's terrorists is another's freedom fighter goes both ways. We all know that. What is significant about the post below is not so much that the USA is slow to notice Uyghur terrorism when it comes to China, what is even bigger what it says about the support the USA has shown for this terrorists...and why.
Gotta go folks...KU into overtime, unfortunately we don't have hardly any players left and those that are still around have four fouls...

All Part of the Plan
The Chinese leadership views the world today in much the same way Kaiser Wilhelm II did a century ago: The present world order serves the needs of the United States and its allies, which constructed it. And it is poorly suited to the needs of a Chinese dictatorship trying to maintain power at home and increase its clout abroad. Chinese leaders chafe at the constraints on them and worry that they must change the rules of the international system before the international system changes them.
In truth, the debate over whether we should or should not contain China is a bit silly. We are already containing China – not always consciously and not entirely successfully, but enough to annoy Chinese leaders and be an obstacle to their ambitions.
We should hold the line instead and work for political change in Beijing. That means strengthening our military capabilities in the region, improving our security ties with friends and allies, and making clear that we will respond, with force if necessary, when China uses military intimidation or aggression to achieve its regional ambitions.
