BIN LADEN IN MUSLIM CHINA?
Just where are his wives and kids?
AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN, AND CHINA BORDER EACH OTHER
They may be living in "Muslim China," perhaps in the city of Kashgar. They'd be well-protected by a generation of militant islamics.
In the 1980s a large Islamic militant force was raised in Xinjiang (pr. "shee-yong") to wage a jehad against the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan. See History of Islam in China.
Over the China border, if not wanting to go northeast to Kashgar, there are some isolated settlements due east, such as Akmeqit (map), Pusa, and Kokyar (map). Between them are many miles of rugged terrain. Kokyar is six miles from Pusa, Akmeqit is 25 miles from Pusa (map). Another settlement is Uxxarbax (map) which appears to be at a higher elevation than the others.
"During the last six months, Bin Laden has been sighted several times in the mountains and open ranges of the Northwest [Pakistan]. American intelligence agents in the region are of the opinion that the Saudi millionaire, accompanied by an escort of 50 guerrilla mujaheddin, moved East toward Kashmir, and from there crossed into China."—Gordon Thomas, 10/13/04
"There are places in Afghanistan and Pakistan that border with China. That is one area where no one is really looking. It is a small strip of land between Tajikistan and Pakistan and the land terrain is such that it is difficult to find any one. The Wakhan Corridor from Afghanistan to China is an ideal place for Osama Bin Laden to hide within Chinese territory."—India Daily, 01/17/05
AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN, AND CHINA BORDER EACH OTHER
"During the 1980s China co-operated actively with the Americans in financing and training the Afghan Mujahedeen to fight off the Soviet invaders. Beijing not only armed them with weapons but even supplied hundreds of mules, which were marched across the Wakham Corridor linking the two countries."—source [Link expired.]
CHINESE AMMUNITION FOUND IN AGHANISTAN CAVES—"Pentagon officials aboard the plane taking Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to Brussels revealed [that] large quantities of Chinese-manufactured ammunition were discovered in the Tora Bora cave hideouts of Osama bin Laden."—worldnetdaily
"If Bin Laden made it to the vast and remote area of Muslim western China he would, at least, be safe from the Americans, who would not be able to launch any military action there to catch him. But it is unlikely that China would welcome him. The regime is worried about the prospect of an Islamic uprising among its millions of Muslim citizens."—source
"He works a great deal with China. He's got good relations with them."—source [Link expired.]

right in Kashgar there! He won't be found In Pakistan, The Chinese are giving
him safe passage to China for the 15 dude missiles that the US sent to blow up

"1. It seems rather obvious that you've never done any serious research or consideration on the subject of bin Laden, Islam, the roots of terrorism, history, politics, or anything else, for even a nanosecond. For one thing, the Muslim population that thrived for decades in the "Xinjiang Street" area you mention in the Weigongcun neighborhood of Beijing was brutally and forcebly evicted way back in 2001. The thousands of Uighurs who lived there, who owned bustling businesses, and who's culture greatly added to the cultural diveristy and richness of Beijing, were all basically bulldozed into oblivion to make way for high-rise apartments for rich Han Chinese and foreigners. The same thing goes for the even LARGER neighborhood in the Ganjiakou neighborhood of Beijing in 1999. Get your facts correct, and get your narrow, tunnel-vision head out of your ass." firstname.lastname@example.org
