WHERE'S THE UNICORN RIDER?:

China demands Turkish retraction (BBC, 7/13/09)

China has demanded that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan retract his accusation that Beijing practised genocide against ethnic Uighurs.

Mr Erdogan made the claim after riots in the Uighur heartland of Xinjiang during which 184 people were killed.


Exactly the sort of tension we should be stoking.
