Lonely, funny thing is, we can get hot water from the departure lounge. I refilled my flask before departing to Xiamen.

Wan,

Did you ask him why you had to throw away your water? It seems that he doubted whether your water was safe.

Lonely, you should never argue with any airport official security, especially in China. Further, they don't speak English well.

Ok, I remember this. Actually, I didn't suggest you argue with the airport securityman. I suggest you ask him why you had to throw your water.

Since when other people care if we drink the water is safe or not?

Much of the carry-on restrictions, such as the liquids being discussed here, are a result of the 9/11 incident.

It has been proven that authorities knew before 9/11 that the incident was going to occur. They let the hijackings take place.

The carry-on restrictions we have today on flights are mostly unnecessary. We are screened for our liquids because authorities want to be assured that dangerous chemicals are not being brought onto the plane, which could react to form an explosion.

But as has been pointed out here, one can buy drinks, liquids once you go past security.
There is no guarantee that 'terrorists' can't bribe airport workers who sell these beverages after the security screening.
The 'beverages' could be dangerous chemicals, waiting for a terrorist to come and pick them up.

Is this real, Canadaguy? How could they watch so many people get killed in the accident? Why didn't they take actions before the tragedy happened? Did the authorities take the hijack as a good excuse to fight the terrorists and invade Afghanistan and other countries?

They care only if the water may bring danger to the plane.

The authorities know everything, and also are capable to cover everything up.

Dangerous liquid can be less than 100ml which is allowed to bring onboard. To determine if the liquid in the mineral water bottle is dangerous or otherwise why not ask the person carrying it to drink, and if he drinks it's not dangerous. Hijackers and terrorists have other ways how to blow a plane. Like Canada said, mostly unnecessary.
