The attack that took place at Kunming train station last weekend has rocked China to its core. All major newspaper picked up the story but during this past week Chinese media has denounced them and foreign government for their unwillingness to describe the attack as terrorism. The following article, translated from ifeng, compares the language used by two British and two American media when describing the Kunming attack and the London’s Woolwich attack, which took place last May. It should be noted that the US later came out and described what happened in Kunming as “an act of terrorism.”

Rabble rousing nonsense.

latest news, chinadaily on changsha attack: "knife-wielding assailant".  How dare they using accurate and descriptive word like "knife-wielding" instead of "truly barbaric".
