East Turkestan (the Chinese “autonomous region” of Xinjiang on your atlas –
the “autonomy” is, of course, perfectly fictititous) now has a formal
government-in-exile, launched on Tuesday, September 14, on Capitol Hill
, scroll down to 2nd story;
declaration statement in full.)
The commies are, of course, furious with us for letting this happen.
Here’s further comment from the Straits Times.
D.J. McGuire, who sent me this info, notes about that last report: “‘The
news service quoted unnamed analysts as saying the East Turkestan issue was
likely to become an irritant in Sino-US relations in the future.’ Irritant?
So the Uighurs are diplomatic athlete’s foot?”
