    Another clash caused by intolerance of others living nearby. Whether it is ethnicity or religion fanning the flames, it will likely develop into a perpetual feud that eventually causes the deaths of thousands of people. The first, second and third blows in a fight are forgotten once the vengeance factor takes hold. Forgiveness is not on the agenda of either side. Religion or ethnicity, in either case, it is unacceptable behavior in what should be a peaceful living amongst men.

    Hey, if China needs a good war to trim its population, I say have at it. Just leave us out of it.

    And besides, making it a civil war helps them achieve their population goals that much sooner. :D

    I wonder how the reaction would be on this forum if the protesters were Christian? Keep in mind that the United States and China cooperated in suppressing the Muslim Uighurs.

    China's been persecuting political dissidents in the region and terrorizing its population for far too long. Hopefully, the unrest will lead somewhere. I suspect it will only result in harsher crackdowns and increased persecution, though.
