Uyghurs are truely the indigenous population of East Turkestan/aka Xinjiang. Uyghurs are the oldest Turkic people, a close relation to Central Asian Turkic nations. China is an aggressor.

Chinese bloggers always used the Indian-U.S. history to make excuses in their modern day exploitation hoping to legitimate their actions. The whole world knows, you may be able to hide it from your people but not in the eyes of the world.
