That is, to quote the late General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, "Bovine scatology."
I have followed this from the initial outbreak in Wuhan. Every characteristic of this virus- its "behavior" and its pattern from initial isolated outbreak to global spread- stank to high heaven of being man-made and intentionally-released. The economic and geopolitical quandary in which the CCP found itself at the time of the outbreak makes it even more suspect. And everything the CCP and their little bitch the WHO said and did after the initial outbreak was intended to delay our response and facilitate the global spread of the virus. EVERY. THING.
The CCP sensed it was losing its economic hegemony and political leverage over the world and felt the need to do something to regain their dominance. What better way to regain control than to cripple the global economy at a single stroke? And what more efficient means exists to accomplish this end (and even corner the market on PPE and pharmaceuticals in the process) than to create a pandemic?
If you think that this is a bit of a stretch, then I invite you to consider the nature and history of communism (and the Chinese Communist Party in particular). Also consider the mountains of corpses that both the philosophy in general and the CCP in particular now stand atop in order to get a better view of the world that they seek to conquer.
The CCP is not at all squeamish about destroying millions of Chinese (and enslaving millions more) just to make a point. Why would they hesitate to murder millions of people around the world if it improves their grip on global economy and policy?
But if doubt remains regarding the evil, deceit, malice, and true intent of the CCP, then consider their actions after the outbreak went global . The CCP directed its global surrogates to buy up and hoard (or send to China) all the PPE and medical equipment that they could lay hands on. At the same time, the CCP was attempting to present themselves as the world's saviors through the "magnanimous" and "benevolent" gesture of rushing PPE and medical equipment to desperate nations around the world.
Defective PPE and equipment, that is.
Do not be deceived: The CCP has no intention of helping the global democracies that it has every intention to destroy. Thus far, everything the CCP have said and done regarding this crisis has been malicious, deceptive, counterproductive, and outright threatening.
This was no accident.
