What a lame article! China's government always has some lousy excuses when they do not wish to do something, but they sure are busy building islands in the South China Sea. Now that is important, LOL.

I'm not a fan of China but not getting involved in the Middle East is the smartest decision they could ever make. USA destroyed themselves in the Middle East and every nation that screws around in that region ends up with buckets of regret.

China shouldn't get involved in the Middle East - the US and its allies only shoot themselves in the foot by meddling in that region in order to prop up the Zionist state of Israel. ISIS wouldn't exist in the first place if the US hadn't launched its ridiculous war in Iraq. The fall of Saddam Hussein created enough instability that a bunch of wackjobs like ISIS could rise to power. Foreign policy should be about pursuing national interests and it is not in China's national interests to get involved.

Here here, EVERY LIFE IS VALUABLE. After all it was the British, French Germans and Americans who carved up the Middle East after the War. Installing their puppets governments (poodles).To suite their needs (oil) and when these poodles do not toe the line, they became mad dogs, despots, dictators, terrorists etc. Must get rid of them at all cost send in cruise missiles.Put them back another century and we can keep our factories and companies to and rebuild for them, (economics).Oh heck, we'll supply the arms too, so they bicker and fight among themselves after we have divided them into good and bad guys.then we say look at them! So what few rag heads get killed! collateral damage, shit happens! Remember the Mujahideens the freedom fighters! were and are the same people (Taliban now ) are now rebels terrorists.American buddies they were! Oh, wasn't Israel born out of terrorist activities? The labeling by the America and its allies of who and what is terrorist in so two faced. Western powers will do everything to get China involved in their mess, who is to say that troubles in Xinjiang are not covert in upsetting the Chinese progress by some external interference. enough for now!

Typical Zionist thinking... hide behind anti-defamation accusations without actually addressing my point. It's not "the Jews" fault - it's America's obsession with supporting Israel when Israel is more than capable of taking care of itself. It's likely that big money from Zionist sympathizers, whether Jews or not, affects politicians and encourages them to act that way. The Israel lobby is very strong and influential in Washington.

"And no, Israel wasn't founded out of terrorist activities, that's BS." No they did use bombings at civilian targets to drive the Brits out. that is documented fact!

Zionists. Actually. And the 'zionists' are NOT Jews.

You are 100% lying. I have never in my life met a Muslim who supported terrorism. Every Muslim I've ever met (and I was raised in Canada where there are tons of Muslims from all nations) abhors Taliban, ISIS, and whatever other terrorist organization there is. Your statement lost all credence when you said you can't trust Muslims. Judging an entire 1.7 billion people proves your ignorance.

"The Chinese public is not familiar with the Middle East and has a fuzzy understanding of the region." i.e. they're dumb as rocks.
