Chinese state media reported fifty people in Xinjiang, China died in violence on Sunday, not the previously reported two. 40 rioters, six civilians and four police officers were killed. No reason was given for the delay in reporting.
An earlier attack on 22 May in an open-air market in Urumqi's predominantly Han-populated Shayibake district, left 31 people dead and 94 injured. Before that, came the March 1st mass knife attack at Kunming train station, and the 30 April knife and bomb attack at Urumqi's central train station.
While I hate the thought of one group of people being victimized by another, I don't think we should settle any dispute with mass combat.
I have no advice about how to settle every world conflict. I would rather diplomats sort it out with their communication skills. After all, that's what they are paid for.
If there is a dispute in my family, I sit everyone involved around a table and try to get them to discuss what is upsetting them. Once resentment eases away, they can usually sort things out, even if only to call a truce.
Can you offer a solution to world problems that would take the place of fighting?
