Xinjiang Riots: British Destabilization of Asia

July 7 (EIRNS)—Lyndon LaRouche said today that the evidence is clear that the riots in Urumqi in western China's Xinjiang province are entirely a British operation, made possible by the role of the British agent in the White House, Barack Obama. The targets, as LaRouche has emphasized, are Iran, India, Russia, and China. British- and Saudi-trained terrorists are moving out of Pakistan into Central Asia, and into China's Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, providing the Anglo/Saudi apparatus with a further destabilization capacity across the entire "Arc of Crisis." This arc, identified as a British operation against Eurasia in LaRouche's "Storm Over Asia" TV broadcast in 1999, is now exploding, from British destabilization and threats against Iran; to terrorist attacks in the Caucasus; to renewed terror bombing in Iraq accompanying the U.S. troop withdrawal from the cities; to the bloody escalation in Afghanistan and Central Asia; to terrorism in the Islamic regions of the Philippines and Thailand; and now, the Xinjiang riots.

Videos from Urumqi show that the Uighur demonstrations, initially protesting a racial conflict in Guangdong province in which two Uighur workers were killed two weeks ago, turned into a riot, much like the Tibet riots of last year, in which Han Chinese residents of Urumqi were pulled out of cars and shops and beaten. Over 200 shops were damaged and 200 cars, including police cars, burned or otherwise damaged. Over 150 deaths are reported, with most reports indicating that about 30 were Uighurs, although this is unconfirmed.

From May 21-25, the Uighur separatist movement, the World Uighur Congress (WUC), held a conference in Washington—in the U.S. Capitol building!—titled "East Turkistan, 60 Years Under Communist Chinese Rule." (East Turkistan is the name for a separate nation intended to replace China's Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region). The conference was sponsored by a nest of British intelligence operations in Washington—the quasi-governmental National Endowment for Democracy, British MI6's Amnesty International, George Soros's Human Rights Watch, and the Unrepresented Peoples and Nations Organization (UNPO—an imperial organization set up in 1989 in The Hague to support indigenous people and separatist movements against nation-states).

The conference opened with the U.S. National Anthem and that of East Turkistan (a non-existent nation), and was addressed by members of the U.S. Congress, in addition to representatives of the sponsoring organizations. Only six weeks later, Xinjiang exploded in violence.

Rediya Kadeer, the president of the WUC, was accused by the Chinese government of instigating the riots in Urumqi, over the Internet, and through phone calls into the region. Interviewed by al-Jazeera today TVB, Kadeer admitted that she had called for the Uighurs to "go to the streets to demonstrate against Chinese oppression." But she blamed the violence on the Chinese, despite the films shown by al-Jazeera proving the opposite.

Chinese police are now reporting that they are dispersing groups of Han Chinese who were arming themselves with sticks and knives. They say that demonstrations in Kashgar (also, in Xinjiang), were dispersed without violence. Near the Tajik and Pakistan borders, Kashgar is the more dangerous location, as Pakistan-based insurgents travel back and forth through that area. China reported last month that seven "terror cells" had been uncovered and shut down in Kashgar over the past four months.
