In recent weeks, China has introduced a number of extreme measures, such as banning matches and imposing airline-like restrictions on bus passengers, to prevent further terrorist attacks in Xinjiang. Although the one-year-long anti-terror campaign is in full swing and countless suspects have been imprisoned, there is no end in sight to the violence, as demonstrated by several incidents this week. On Monday, “dozens of people” were killed or injured in what has been described as a “premeditated terror attack” by local police.

After the tragic events of July 5 in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China, it would be useful to look more closely into the actual role of the US Government’s ”independent“ NGO, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). All indications are that the US Government, once more acting through its “private” Non-Governmental Organization, the NED, is massively intervening into the internal politics of China. Engdahl’s article ties in with Thierry Meyssan’s consistent reporting (see below) of the covert nature of the NED and “sister” organizations which are engaged in the destabilization of countries of strategic, geopolitical interest for Washington under the guise of liberty and democracy.
