Just a week after the Boston terrorist attack, another terror incident took place in Bachu County of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in which 15 police officers and community workers were killed and  6 suspects were shot dead. Instead of condemning the attacks, the US State Department on Wednesday urged China to "provide all Chinese citizens, including Uighurs, the due process protections to which they're entitiled". Why did the US make different responses to the similar cases of terrorist attacks, one happened at home and the other in China?

China angrily dismissed the criticism on Thursday. Hua Chunying, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said the U.S. should stop making "wild accusations about Chinese policy toward ethnic minorities."

She also blasted Washington for failing to condemn the violence. She told reporters at Thursday's regular press conference that U.S. leaders should be more sympathetic toward Chinese policies since both countries are confronted with violent terrorist attacks.

The violent attacks happened around Tuesday noon in a town of Bachu County, Kashgar Prefecture, some 1,200 km southwest of Urumqi, regional capital of Xinjiang.

Three community workers discovered suspicious individuals and knives in the home of a local resident. They then reported the situation to their supervisors via phone, but were seized by the suspects who had been hiding in the house.

Police officers and community officials from the township rushed to the scene, but were attacked and killed by the suspects, who also killed the three community workers they had seized earlier and burned the house.

Other police officers who arrived at the scene shot the suspects and got the situation under control.

Two other people from the authorities were also injured in the clash, and eight terrorist suspects were captured.

An initial investigation has indicated that the suspects are all terrorists who were planning on violent attacks.

It has been the sworn duty of western propagandists to condemn any nation not on board to
let the west take over the world. Their famed brand called 'democracy' consists of giving a choice
between several candidates, all bought and paid for by the obscenely rich rulers of the west.
The one skill the west excels at is marketing. The people of the world are getting tired of their
commercials though.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The terrorists attack against China you mention is probably ordered by the CIA and other Western terrorists group themselves. That is the reason why they do not condemn themselves.
I am an Asian American. I came to Chinadaily forum hoping to share my experience, knowledge, and my point of view. And in return I want to get the same in return from friends from around the world.

I think it is unlikely that the CIA are ‘directing operations’ as there would need to be more evidence of an immediate objective such as there are/have been in countries like Syria, Libya, Mali etc. However, the CIA and/or their clones do seem to have a bad habit of aiding bad guys to keep the pot boiling until they are ready to focus the dissidents on achieving "American Interests".
(mostly harmless)

Wrong as usual, in the UK anyone can stand as a candidate to be a member of parliament, they only need to be a citizen of the UK and pay a small deposit that is returned if they poll enough votes.

As usual you speak about things that you have not researched.

That's just a cute trick to keep stooges like you thinking you're free.
