The religious and cultural tensions the West faces are "payback" for slavery and colonialism, a Chinese state-run newspaper said Tuesday in the wake of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper — which often takes a nationalistic tone — dismissed the weekend's huge marches in Paris and elsewhere as "painkillers" that cannot halt the intensifying "clash of civilizations".

    i think some crap a nationalist chinese paper wrote shouldn't make headlines for a technology based news site.

    Famously, Leo Trotsky said, "you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you." Ah, I only he had assumed leadership of the Russian Revolution instead of Stalin! But that is not important now. Do you like Gladiator movies? [I think, through vague clouds of memory, that this is a reference to the first "Airplane" movie, but I will have to claim Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.] So should we ignore this because it is a) nationalist, or b) Chinese, or c) a paper. I am confused by your refusal, based on the reasons you give. Imperialist running dog of capitalist hegemony, you!

    I think he means we should ignore it because it's 9) crap. (*)

    (*) Using "9" because it precedes "a" in the hexadecimal digits, there's nothing preceding "a" in the alphabet, and in the quote the word "crap" comes before the word "nationalist" which you've already assigned the letter "a".
