Should East Turkistan become a independant country..?
You're basing all these claims on what evidence now?Clashman said:That's just not true. Uighurs are treated like second class citizens, are repressed when they try to speak out about their rights, and are being colonized, and that's a big part of the reason why they want independence. You can't just blame it all on the turks.
Oh OK, let's give everyone independence and end up with tens of thousands of tiny little nation states... yeah, that' make things more simple... There will be even more wars because not every nation will agree how these new borders will be drawn... etc.Clashman said:And if Quebec wants independence, I say give it to them. Same with the Basque land, Puerto Rico, and Texas, for all I care. It's not a big deal, it's just a line on a map.
"East Turkistan" is the name that Uighur separatists use to call Xinjiang. I've never heard of "Kurdistan".Grygry said:Is East Turkistan another name for Xinjiang? (or Kurdistan?)
I'm not sure to understand everything...
Heh, this character is simply filled with hatred... :runaway:fertek said:Yes, but neither muslims nor turks are powerful enough to remove the grip of chinese (totally different culture and people including the appearance) as they did in 711 along the Battle of Talas River ..That battle kept them off the Fergana Valley , East Turkistan well until the end of 19th century...
Just a matter of time till China is knocked down (irony they are just waking up) or muslims wake up and bust the chinese balls again...and in this age of "NUKES" it seems very hard, but hey different people, different attitude , different food, and I guess even different alphabet (arabic??) and you ecpect them to mingle with tha HAN Chinese to be able to get their fair share!!!
One way or abother they have to fold...bloody or not is just a choice of the oppressor..and as long as different conciousness is there in SIN-CAN they will get the HAN out of there...
yep... and on the surface, this guy give us such an impression that he or she know everything about Uyghur (maybe he's turk), yet actually he doesn't know anything including the history of SILKROAD beneath the surface.Pangu said:Heh, this character is simply filled with hatred... :runaway:
