China leading the fight against Muslim extremists.


Over the past few months Chinese soldiers have successfully repelled the Muslim brotherhood known as Isis, killing hundreds in Xinjiang and Tibet and burning 28 alive with flamethrowers in one of their latest attacks according to Alex Wellman of the Mirror, leaving the failed amateurs to melt on the mountainside in western Xinjiang.
     Cowering inside a cave in Aksu, the Islamic State terrorists were no match against the Chinese special forces as they hunted them down “like eagles discovering their prey”. Using flamethrowers to draw them out, the terrorists came running from the cave screaming and wailing, only to be “completely annihilated” by supporting gunfire.
     Another great victory in the war on terror was announced just days ago by the Chinese government after 17 suspects, including seven young Muslim women and children, were swiftly eradicated by police officers in Xinjiang once again (a primary target for the religious fanatics). This came following an attack in Aksu in September which left 16 people dead, whereas one of the 17 fanatics involved surrendered by pleading for his life.
     Despite some very minor attacks like the October 2013 Tiananmen square car attack in Beijing, Isis have had very little success in advancing beyond the Xinjiang and Tibetan mountains of western China, and their chances of reaching the more rural areas in the east are extremely slim. However, concerns are now growing over the capturing of untapped mineral deposits equating to an estimated $30 trillion in Afghanistan by the terrorist group, this potential revenue being the main reason for China’s large investment in maintaining stability in Afghanistan. The unexplored oil and natural gas reserves in the eastern region are of particular concern, along with the vast 28 kilometre-squared Aynak copper field (the largest in the world) estimated to contain up to $88 billion worth of ore. Consequently, China has established valuable trade links in Afghanistan and is now increasing its military presence as US and NATO troops withdraw.
     All roads lead to Rome it would seem, with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent policy to develop the old Silk Road of the Han dynasty into a modern trade route spanning across China, the Middle East and up into Europe, showing a somewhat humorous indifference towards the Islamic State terror group in the region. Being a world superpower and boasting the largest army in the world of 200 million, it is hardly surprising that President Jinping has taken this casual approach.
     With a constant onslaught from European and Russian superpowers seriously weakening the terrorist group, China’s recent involvement including bombing in Syria and Iraq and its exploitation of natural resources in Afghanistan, the situation looks dire for the Isis extremists.

Peaceful Chinese family man Fan Jinghui brutally slaughtered by Isis calls for discussion over why China should bomb targets in Syria and Iraq.

The savage attack and cold-blooded execution of 50-year-old family man Fan Jinghui from Beijing took place days before the attacks in Paris which claimed 129 innocent souls and left hundreds severely wounded.
     Fan was kidnapped, beaten severely and humiliated, with the words “FOR SALE” written below a photograph of poor Fan in the latest Isis propaganda magazine ‘Dabiq’. Fan was a high school teacher and taught children in Beijing, and later worked as a freelance advertising consultant. He was much loved by his students, colleagues and family. But despite this horrific violence which demands swift justice be brought upon the terrorist group, the Chinese government have covered up Fan’s death to avoid taking any further action. However, despite this non-interference foreign policy, steps must now be taken to repel this inevitable invasion into Chinese soil as Isis move further east into Afghanistan, causing much cause for concern throughout China.
     The terrorists are posing an increasing risk as they encroach upon China’s borders. Isis, who are now foolishly threatening Chinese citizens, are coming closer to provoking an all-out war with China. Boasting an army of 200 million, Isis are no match for the sleeping dragon, and perhaps this foolish act of aggression will persuade the people of China to join in the fight and finally put an end to these barbaric monsters, restoring peace among nations around the world and gaining them a great victory.
     For years Chinese citizens have been kidnapped and killed in Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan, among other places. But now attacks are becoming more frequent in China itself, with Xinjiang being a primary target and the 2013 Tiananmen Square terrorist attack with a car which was set ablaze and driven into a crowd of tourists. Another twenty-nine commuters were massacred last year and 130 maimed with knifes at a train station in Kunming. How long will the Chinese government continue to sit back and do nothing while its citizens are being massacred?
     Should China continue to remain on the sidelines and cover up these acts of war which are now threatening their own countrymen, or is it about time military action was taken to thwart these aggressors and repel this invasion into Chinese soil? Perhaps more consideration should be shown to the families of the victims involved by bringing their killers to justice.
