This documentary, entitled “反恐,中国准备好了吗?“, discusses terrorist attacks in China and China’s measures for counter-terrorism. It also discusses the origins of China’s counter-terrorism forces, Ba Ren Xiang (八仁乡暴乱), Wang Lequan, and presents a picture of how Chinese policies toward Xinjiang are understood domestically. Some of video is over-dramatized, but that should not distract from the more serious discussion scattered through about intelligence, Chinese policies, and how China has responded to incidents that surpass those normally thought of as “stability maintenance” (维护稳定).

None of the images surpass what one can find in Chinese newspapers; however, be forewarned that some images from Kunming probably are more graphic than would appear in an American broadcast.
