U.S. savages WHO as it promises pandemic review, but China pledges $2 billion

There are existing international treaties including the US that cover these dangerous biolab facilitates and related military biological activates. China has been warned repeatedly so it seems China is the one on the outside.

Many of the treaties are under various sections of the UN, which the current administration in the US hates, and do not give the automatic rights of inspections which would have been necessary to intervene in the COVID case in China at an earlier stage. 

Regardless of the outcome of the next US election there is still a substantial constituency in the US which resents the UN or another body having supremacy over the US actions, and so it is time to consider moving the UN Headquarters away from New York, possibly to a more neutral venue such as Stockholm.

Of course that would mean the removal of the countries ambassadors and their entourages from New York, all the visitors to the high-level meetings and conventions etc. and less revenues for high-end hotels - such as those owned by Trump.

As I said before, be careful what you wish for

Exactly how the CCP thinks and exactly opposite to how the real Free World operates. They, the CCP, not the Chinese people, have always misunderstood the noise of freedom. It will be their failing to the delight of the Free World and Chinese people everywhere.

 

Best start treating them like the really big third world thug they are. Demand they come clean on their dangerous biolab and military biological research. If not shut them down.

irony is way above many on this forum!

And the Bush administration rejected a projected internationally binding verification protocol to the BWC.

Thank you, I was thinking of writing that but could not remember the exact circumstances

jinkies!  you missed the point completely!

 

this is how MY country responds to international investigations about our exceptional selves and the suggestion of investigating war crimes.

 

i didn't include the (alleged) older quote of bolton telling an ocpw investigator "we know where your kids live" as i don't have a suitable link to a quote of him saying that.

Understood clearly. I just took your effort to paint the US as a rogue bully and placed on the real rogue, the CCP.

Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged $2 billion over the next two years to help deal with COVID-19, especially in developing countries.

Trying to buy closure... $38 million a year to $2 billion over the next two years is a clear indication of a country trying to erase history.

or maybe a country trying to make up for the shortcomings of a rogue bully nation, paying their own assessed fees, along with the assessed fees and donations formerly given by same rogue bully nation.

 

kinda makes trump look petty, roguish and bullying.

They promise a lot.  They usually do.  But if history is any indication, looking back after 2 years will reveal far less than $2B contributed.   And by then, the heat will be off and the world will have moved on to a different crisis.

The official China got caught with their ever-important face-saving exercise. Nothing is higher and more important than the face; a Chinese thing which applies to anything Asian, Middle Eastern and quite a few Mediterranean states. 

The 2 billion USD is loose change; the Chinese - oncemore again - managed to try to swipe their mess under the big red communist carpet and ......... failed again. 

The avian flue, SARS and many other funny little diseases of smaller and bigger proportions could have been avoided if they would have pushed the button "we have a problem" and "we need help". 

Another question is of course, who is the big winner(s) in this race? Trillions of any decent currency got destroyed, without a doubt a billion people are suffering in one or the other way and the only problem is, that the WHO will not recognize Taiwan ROC. 

If you ask me, too many clowns and far to few circuses. Either you take the Chinese, once and for all, to reasoning and responsibility or you officially declare that the Chinese won the battle. 

Stop buying from China, stop selling to China and they will be creeping up your fibula anytime soon - question of course is, how long would it last and most likely the wrong Chinese would get punished. 

I do my little private thing and avoid buying anything Chinese - if I can. The admin of this forum prohibits me using the real vocabulary which would be befitting these godforsaken "*ç%"%+!

Another trump hater using anything he can to make trump in a bad light. A shame really since America is not the only country devoured by this virus.. So what you are saying is that all the leaders listened and followed trump and so they all had their people in lockdown or dying. 

Surely if trumps staff knew them other countries staff also knew and allowed this virus to spread. Or quite possibly the WHO downplayed the virus for China's benefit or believed everything China was telling them and used less force in their warnings that led the rest of the world to get infected. 

The proof is already shown the virus was known and harsh measures taken inside wuhan and China prior to WHO telling the world to worry. 

This increase to 2 billion being offered by China seems more like bribery money or compensation for the WHO helping make them look like they actually followed protocols and didn't ignore the data that wasn't approved by China's leadership. 

There is no question that Trump failed completely at Covid 19 and all he says now are excuses to blame everyone else for his mismanagement.  The whole world saw through this ..... with a few exceptions😉

trump making threats?  that's not nice.  but par for the course.

 

how about breastfeeding?  not even trump would say a mother feeding her child isn't a beautiful thing.  not unless you're in the pocket of the baby formula lobby.

 

The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced.

and tuberculosis?  that's a smart enemy, an invisible enemy.  unless you're a lobbyist for the pharmaceutical industry and have trump's blessings, and then it's a profit center.

 

The United States had already threatened to pull out of the resolution, due to be signed at a September summit, if language linked to the World Trade Organization’s TRIPS agreement on intellectual property flexibilities remained. The now-removed sections would have allowed developing countries to override drug companies’ patents in cases of public health need, a practice known as compulsory licensing that can make medicines more affordable — but has drawn drug makers’ ire before.
