That's what I've been saying all along, and Tasman1 you appear to be somehow of a hypocrite, because you are agreeing with his assessment yet you strongly are on the defensive whenever I bring up a topic about China, as if you are protecting this corrupt country that has lied and covered up information that could have saved the world and many lives. And now China right in the middle of a pandemic pulls this new stunt, which will add more fuel into the bad relations between Canada and US, which has caused the stock markets that were doing fairly well to go back down and plummet and which risks the world going into economical collapse because of this - AND YET you are in agreement that China purposely started this for money interest, who's side are you on ???????
China does not need to start pandemics to gain money interests, they can hold their own ground well - As far as the being developed in lab and purposely released, well that would be absurd, because China would be just as much punished by such economical fallout. China could just as well blame the U.S. for the 2008 financial crisis, and they would be right to do so, BUT one thing for sure, America did not create pandemics !!!! Was this virus China made, these are conspiracy theories, but I do not see the logic in that - the first CASE of an infected person was in Wuhan, that is a FACT - now maybe the VIRUS itself did not start in China and just happen to be imported through wild animals from other countries, but nonetheless, the fact that China even allowed those markets to operate makes them guilty by association - the whole gd planet is locked down and we are never seeing the gd end of this, not being able to do our activities nothing all because of some bat loving, wild animal smuggling tools, selfish that they are not thinking of consequences for the whole world. If China wants business and money interests, pandemics is not the right strategy, even a highly corrupt country like China knows better - now don't get me wrong, I think Canada is just as corrupt if not worse and we have governments here that deserve to be blamed on a lot of levels for the mismanagement of this pandemic.
Did China create this virus to make money - I don't believe so, why the hell would they, they don't need to !
But let's talk about logic, if the virus started in China, and became a f****** pandemic across the world, it means that someone infected there traveled OUT of China - had the government NOT allowed any travelers out of China, EARLY during the pandemic, this would have been avoided - but they allowed travel back and forth. The virus does not travel on plane !!! it is people who spread the virus. So China is guilty by association, BUT let's blame Canada for not taking threats seriously, let's blame the U.S. for having a president that has lost his gd mind and thinking more of his re-election than millions of lives, touting bullshit cures, false hope and absurdities - I would normally support his non conventional ways, BUT his handling of the crisis is appalling - his handling of China is appalling, and if he thinks he will be re-elected starting a new war with China, he should be mistaken, he is out of his f****** mind, any trade tensions with China will cause economy and markets to SINK, even the gun lovin, trump lovin' voter will think twice.
So yeah there are so many people to blame, including the CDC and WHO who purposely stalled into declaring it a pandemic, they stalled and stalled and stalled until finally they were pressured - Had they declared it an emergency it would have allowed resources earlier and maybe saved more lives !!!
If China thinks for a minute it is going to benefit from this pandemic they should think again - unless they pay big fines for this pandemic or make it up to all of us, they will lose business, countries should get together and boycott and cut all ties with China, including lawsuits - BUT now is not the right time - unfortunately Trump wants to rattle China's nerves, not the right strategy right now, let's let this pandemic pass first.......then I think, in my opinion, China has a lot to account for.
We have enough to deal with their viruses, hackers, spies, fake and counterfeit products on wish, amazon, eBay and other, and now a virus that was not properly contained inside ground zero !
They should have left those wild animals alone......where they belong, in the wild.
Not on people's plates !!!
The TORTURE of LIVE animals, how disgusting, and repulsive, this virus is not some LAB creation it is a punishment from mother nature - unfortunately some non local was infected and traveled and infected everyone else in the world, and we are all paying the mf price - how long are we going to be prevented from doing our activities F F sake ? It's like we are all in perpetual detention - and stop listening to Trump, there is not going to be a bloody vaccine, not this year, probably not next year, maybe under BEST of conditions late 2021 to early 2022, are we going to remain locked in cages for 2 more bloody years over some gd virus ? and God forbid if China does have the cure or vaccine they would probably be secretly using it, they will certainly not share it with the rest of the world - which is why it is a big mistake for Trump and other countries to rattle China's nerves right now, they need to kiss arse right now if they want the cure from China, otherwise they will be left in the dark in my opinion.
SO to make it fair, China should wipe the U.S. and Canada's debt clean and any country that was severely infected and part of a large economy.
ON the flip side, U.S. banks should accept blame for the 2008 financial crisis, and pay the price for all the losses and damages caused to people and companies across the world.
Trump claims Xi JingPing is his friend, what a hypocrite, come on, one minute he's complimenting him, next minute he is depicting him as Satan ! Those gd politicians when are they going to stop acting like a bunch of cocks and focusing on getting us out of this MESS, THEN they can fight in the sandbox like a bunch of blimey kids.
