but the country called Mongolia. The Chinese don't accept that the Mongols actually did rule over them and instead claim that
they ruled over the Mongols. Tibet is similar. Whether it had regressive social conditions is not relevant. But in the case of
the Uyghurs, there was never a country by that name. They are like many in other ethnic groups in Asia that never formed
countries. The Uyghurs are clearly being radicalized by Wahabbists and their whole self-determination is somebody else's
agenda. Let's have the Basques and the Catalonians get states while we engage in our double standards.
The Wahabbi radicalization sets the tone. The Chinese response is not all on China.
