THE UNITED STATES AND CHINA AND CORONAVIRUS – THE POSSIBILITY OF A BIO-WEAPON HAVING BEEN USED – NEW INFORMATION SUGGESTS OTHERWISE – THE IMMENSE HOSTILITY TOWARDS CHINA AMERICA HAS NEEDLESSLY GENERATED – CHINA’S COMING DOMINANCE HAS BEEN ENHANCED BY THE CRISIS - AMERICA’S TERRIBLE SITUATION AND EMPTY POLICIES AND ITS SUPERSTITIOUS NONSENSE

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY GODFREE ROBERTS IN THE UNZ REVIEW


“Last Man Standing

“China Wins Big with Covid-19. What Were We Thinking?”

 

I certainly was among the suspicious concerning a bio-weapon.

The quality and attitudes of America’s leadership today make that not unthinkable at all, which is part of the reason so many have written articles suggesting the possibility, or even likelihood.

While ready to accept any facts that emerge, I am beginning to think otherwise.

First, Italian doctors last year appear to have discovered the same thing as the Chinese, an unusual cluster of pneumonia-like cases.

They are beginning to think now that the cases were actually the coronavirus.

Two, a number of serious experts have suggested we have most of our numbers wrong.

The infection, it is suggested, rolled through European and American populations a while ago.

But because, for most people, the infection is so mild, even free of symptoms, all numbers on total infections everywhere are likely wildly off on the low side.

Of course, if that's the case, the death rate for this thing is actually extremely low and does not warrant extreme measures, and our political leaders have acted on the basis of terrible data.

I don't know. It all represents quite a nightmare.

Of course, it didn’t help that this disease was discovered in China, the target of immense hostilities and resentments in America.

The President of the US and, especially, his Secretary of State, a genuinely despicable man, have made the most shameful statements. Just beyond common decency.

But where’s the decency left in a country that severely sanctions the innocent populations of Venezuela and Iran? That attends to killing people in a half dozen other places? And that supports bloody tyrants in a number of countries?

There is no pity and no soul which appear to remain.

I note a number of analysts are saying that China’s demonstrated ability to get through the virus infection in such a well-organized fashion, showing the world its ability to successfully marshal its resources for anything, only strengthens China’s position relative to the US and hastens the day, not far away in any case, when China surpasses the US as the world’s dominant economy.

The US has both an economic and a financial crisis, and those are on top of a mountain of pre-existing debt that they now are only going to increase massively. I can’t help remembering, watching the US reactions to all the events, “How the Mighty have fallen.”
