China already transports more people by train than anywhere else. Why would they target HSR more than the usual trains which they haven't targeted?

I don't see how a terrorist attack on a high speed train would be necessarily much more lethal than on a regular train. Terrorists can also attack a skyscraper or a simple residential block. Should they stop building them therefore?

Thats an insane logic. Things like in London can happen. Chances that people using rail die due to attacks are overall extremely small. Apart from that, China seem to have security systems in place, making such a high speed train a harder target than a random subway line.

I dont see any reason to stop building HSR.

I think terrorist will like your simple idea. please see below for my comment to you.
1)Usual train will not cost more than HSR, what is the cost of to build HSR track and HSR train set? i believe you should know.
2)Do you think passenger rate per hr in HSR will be lesser than usual train?
2)Train Station can be one of the target, how about a simple on high speed rail track? terrorist attack on London, Madrid and Mumbai is not everyday but once a time could make big suffer, dont you think so?
3)For building, i believe you shold know 911 and attack to WTC before 911
4)Lastly, i believe China HSR security has a tight system but USA do have a security tight system too. London and Madrid as well.

THank YOU.

Sorry but what's your point?

If terrorists want to maximize economic damage they will rather sink a big loaded container ship or even better a loaded oil tanker close to some coast line. Their focus usually is however not the real damage but to inflict terror among the civilian population. I don't think the dimension of terror when a HS train is attacked is much different from a regular train.

Lets keep it in perspective. Chances you get hit by a lightning are higher than getting killed by a terrorist attack. At least in the west and I'd suppose also in China.

Why? They set China records on that line in December 2010 already. Now they have to put that line in service configuration and test the service trains.

China is supposed to open Beijing-Shijiazhuang-Zhengzhou-Wuhan railway early in 2012 or late in 2011. How is it progressing? And is it designed for 350 km/h like Wuhan-Guangzhou line, or 380 km/h like Beijing-Shanghai line?

It is designed for 350 km/h, set to open in 2011. and the current view near Shijiahzuang Station is like these:

the picture is taken fron new line of Jingguang Railway, the lowest bridge is old Jingguang Railway, the bridge on the left is connection line from New Shijiazhuang Stasion to Shitai PDL, the bridge on the right side is Shiwu PDL

As long as China has the technology know-how, whatever damaged or destroyed can be rebuilt; in fact, repairing and rebuilding the infrastructures will improve technology and knowledge. as long as the spirit endure, no physical structure is indispensable in the nation's progress.

China's high-speed railway development took another stride forward yesterday with the power being switched on in Shanghai and nearby cities to enable test runs on the Shanghai-Beijing high-speed rail link to start.

The line will be fully tested from March 20 when bullet trains traveling at more than 400 kilometers per hour will make the trip to iron out any problems and make adjustments before the new line opens to the public on June 20.

The trains will run between Shanghai's Hongqiao Railway Station and Beijing's South Railway Station during the tests, the national railway authority said yesterday.

The 1,318-kilometer link will cut the journey between Shanghai and the capital to less than five hours from the current 10 to 18 hours.

...
JUNE 20??!??!?!?!?!?! Why?!!!??!?!?!? Wasn't the line supposed to be opened on the 15th?

I planned my trip to Beijing that way, I could take thre train to Shanghai on the 16th...

my point is simple, i never said HSR is absolute the target of terrorist, i said will be the target.

and you told me that i am insane that why HSR will not be the target with your reason.

then i explained to you with my reason, please see all my points above.
