I most certainly do have a problem with capital punishment / state-sanctioned murder, but that applies to many countries - China, the US, Saudi Arabia. What they do with the corpse afterwards doesn't seem to be the important part.

America is evidentially an imperialist power; China, less so. Don't get me wrong, it's a poor choice either way, but China are already at arms length - it's easier to keep them out. America has wormed it's way into our culture, or legal system and more. The closer the ties, the more they have to gain by exploiting them.
Finally, you've again tried to bring up a moral argument. You can if you like, it's a reasonable one, but to repeat - it's not the one influencing this decision. I can promise you that Iain Duncan-Smith doesn't give a flying fuck about the Uighurs.
