On the first hand
This seems to be the work of some poor souls that lost their job. Downsizing I think its called is the reason for these pitiful attacks.

Volkswagon announced earlier today that their setting up a plant in China. It will take 2-3 years to build. It will also have an output of 150,000 cars per year. Their taking advantage of cheap labor and using China as a grounds to export. Other companies will follow.

On the other hand
They could have been previous Chineese employees. The media hopped onto the terrorist bandwagon to promote China's image. It says that they are a country that are worthy of being attacked by terrorist. FREE ADVERTISING. Many people don't know where China is on the map.
