I have to say Simon, I am a bit surprised and nonplussed that you linked to DJ Mcguire. Reading his entry, I had to resist the urge to put on my tinfoil beanie. Apparently his reputable sources consist the Worldnetdaily and Newsmax. Even further accounting for the tone of his commentors,

"You are so right that the world will have no peace until Communist China is terminated. I only hope Fox News has the guts to invite you for a discussion on your book."

"As soon as I heard about the bombings i knew that this was a CCP attack to take the spotlight off them at this time. Never the less they will fall and the world will know the truth ."

The entire thing seems like fruitcake central. I've seen their type time and time again at the Free Republic. People who are so paranoid and conspiracy ridden they can't see facts written on the walls. (refer to the comments on this thread for proof. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1350794/posts) I wouldn't put it past them to be one of the whole "sino-soviet schism is a communist myth/Soviet Union's demise is a ruse to deceive the US and they will strike when the guard is down" believers.

Jing, I was very wary of linking to that piece, but I figured I'd link it and people could draw their own conclusions. Oh, and I had my tin foil hat on at the time.

Just in case.
