The Xinjiang genocide talks are strictly for domestic consumption. The allegations are unprovable by default and so outrageous that no one in China believes them. Xinjiang is not a black box like North Korea. Millions of tourists visit it every year and if China have done even 1/10th of the things they accused China of doing, legitimate evidence would have leaked out.
It also functions as a way for imperial nations to clean their own history. Initiation into a gang/secret organization might involve an act that prevents you from backing out of the organization in the future. For example, corrupt officials before allowing a new member into their circle will likely involve that new person in corrupt acts as well, its to build dirt of them similar to what they have themselves. This way the new person will be hesitant on acting against this group as they will be going on a suicide mission.

In the context of Xinjiang, the Western imperial powers will built a narrative of "Chinese colonialism" for both domestic and international consumption. This narrative initially creates strong sentiments, over time sentiments fade, some become jaded. When no tangible action is taken against China, people subconsciously assume the normal nature of colonial acts irrespective of whether the narrative against China was real or not to justify their past as a way to build cultural/historical confidence. We will hear more revisionist narratives. The international narrative component aspires to be a tool to prevent China or any other challenger to use anti-colonial ideology against traditional imperial powers.

Guys. All these attacks on China, I think is all coordinated. It all seen to come about now Trump is out of the way and no longer antagonizing it's allies. Look at this piece of subliminal messaging. How to turn news that'll make China look bad, even though it had nothing to do with China. The guardian report pieces of engine fallen off a cargo plane in the Netherlands. The operators is not Chinese yet they still down an air China plane. Anything to make big bad China bad I guess.



This is the incident as reported by Reuters.

Boeing 747 cargo plane drops engine parts in Netherlands, investigation launched

(Reuters) - An incident involving a Boeing 747-400 cargo plane that dropped engine parts after a mid-air explosion and fire over the southern Netherlands on Saturday is under investigation, the Dutch Safety Board said.

The Longtail Aviation cargo plane, flight 5504, scattered small metal parts over the Dutch town of Meerssen, causing damage and injuring a woman shortly after take-off, Maastricht Airport spokeswoman Hella Hendriks said.

The Bermuda-registered plane, which was headed from Maastricht to New York, was powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines, a smaller version of those on a United Airlines Boeing 777 involved in an incident in Denver, also on Saturday.

After that incident, Boeing recommended airlines suspend operations of certain older versions of its 777 airliner powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 engines, variants currently flown by five airlines.

U.S. regulators announced extra inspections and Japan suspended their use while considering further action.

In the Dutch incident, witnesses heard one or two explosions shortly after take-off and the pilot was informed by air traffic control that an engine was on fire, Hendriks said.

"The photos indicate they were parts of engine blade, but that's being investigated," she said. "Several cars were damaged and bits hit several houses. Pieces were found across the residential neighbourhood on roofs, gardens and streets."

Longtail Aviation said it was "too early to speculate as to what may have been the cause of the problem" and that it was working with Dutch, Belgian, Bermuda and UK authorities looking into the incident.

Dozens of pieces fell, Hendriks said, measuring around 5 centimetres wide and up to 25 centimetres long. The aircraft landed safely at Liege airport in Belgium, some 30 kilometres (19 miles) south of the Dutch border.

Boeing referred questions to Dutch authorities.

"Our investigation is still in a preliminary phase, it is too early to draw conclusions," a spokeswoman for the Dutch Safety Board said on Monday.

Europe's EASA aviation regulator said on Monday that it was aware of the Pratt & Whitney jet engine incidents, and was requesting information on the causes to determine what action may be needed.

Well, I mean, we all here know that the only reason Bin Laden was called a terrorist after 9/11 was because he took it to his bosses the CIA/US. Was he really anything more than a disgruntled ex-CIA employee? We all know this is the truth, even if some people on this forum boil and can't bear the sight of the truth.

The problem is that the intended audience is gobbling these lies without a shred of critical thinking.

I do not think I'm exaggerating when I say we've not seen this level of defamation against an ethnic group since the rise of Nazi Germany.

What really ticks me off is not how this relates to China to be honest. I feel like genocide is not something to be taken lightly. Nazis systematically killed 6 million Jewish people, the textbook definition of systematic, not just mass violence. Ottoman Turkey killed at least hundreds of thousands of Armenians. More recently there is what happened in Rwanda and Balkans. So if CCP is so awful, so vile, shouldn't you do more than just have a meaningless vote? You basically turn genocide into something meaningless. These politicians just making an excuse to blow hot air.
Great point. The irony of all is that, "they" even brainwash "their own" people. Here in the states, 30 years of MSM propaganda and brain wash has really dumbed the public and stupefied the kids. To a point where nobody can speak facts without repercussions. No wonder, the west is no longer capable of telling things for what they are.
