How To Deal With Muslim Hijackers - Chinese Style

Six Muslim Uighers apparently tried to hijack a Chinese airliner bound for the regional capital of Urumqi last Friday:

Just minutes after the flight took off from Hetian, southwest Xinjiang, the men, all aged between 20 and 36, stood up and announced their plans to terrified passengers.

The gang reportedly broke a pair of aluminium crutches and used them to attack passengers while attempting to break into the cockpit, Hou Hanmin, a regional government spokeswoman said.

The Chinese passengers attacked the hijackers, beat two of them to death and tied the rest up with belts.The plane landed safely minutes later, and the surviving Muslim hijackers were turned over to the Chinese authorities. They were reportedly carrying explosives.

Hen Hao!

I like this!! One of the things I've admired about the Chinese and the Russians is absolute confidence in their positions and themselves. I think it may be hard to for Americans to mount such an organized resistance in a situation like this. To many of think we are at fault and we "have it coming."

I've long said that American leaders and Americans in general should study the Chinese and the Russians. Russia and China have been by far and away the most successful countries in the world so far in the 21st century. If you want to be the best, study the best!!

This does NOT mean that we will implement every thing they do. Some of the things they do and have done will not be applicable to our situation while others may not be desirable. Nevertheless a good starting point in succeeding at any endeavor is to try and study the the best and learn from them. No time like the present to start.

Good places to start. 1.) study Russian military tactics from the beginning of the Soviet era, as well as Russian spycraft and try and learn. 2.) Study Chinese industrial might and try and learn from this with the hopes of learning how to build an industrial base that will allow us to manufacture more of the things we need. One of the things I think we'd lean here would be not to strangle industry with overly burdensome regulations.
