It helps me to think if I put things in order. Here are events that we know for sure: We know that the Chinese made huge money grants to UNC to stuffy in their biochemical lab. We know that they took that info back to Hunan, China where they attempted to combine the SARS virus and the HIV virus and came up with a new (or Novel) virus which we call the Corona Virus.
We know that it originated in a biochemical lab in Wuhan, China that is devoted to developing weaponized viruses. When it spread in Wuhan, we know the communist government in China isolated Wuhan and would not allow anyone there to fly to any other part of China. The virus never reached Beijing or Shanghai where. the government and military officials live and none of them contracted the virus. But China DID allow infected residents from Wuhan to fly to all parts of the globe.
This resulted in two things. The virus was virtually eliminated in China, which is back to normal, up and running, the economy booming again. The Apple iPhone plants are churning them out. In the meantime, the economy of China’s main competitors (primarily the US) is crippled with almost everything closed and 20 million Americans out of jobs.
So, what has China gained from all this? Yes, they have destroyed the economy of the world by not containing this virus when they could easily have done it. But the world they destroyed has no money to buy their goods.
My conclusion, right or wrong, is this: This has leveled the economic playing field for China. Their communist dictatorship determined that this virus was not going to wipe them out, while the rest of the world remained vibrant and productive. They deliberately spread this deadly disease, which they invented, to every corner of the globe. Their strategy worked. They are back to normal—while the rest of the world is struggling to survive.
Yes, the world will slowly recover. The economy will gradually come back. People will have money again. And China will be ready to sell them everything.
Yet hard choices remain. This was the equivalent of China declaring war on the rest of the world. They did it in the most clandestine way. And they have certainly won the battle. You have only to look around at all the shuttered businesses in America to see that. But China must be made to pay for this worldwide crime. So, what do we do now to punish them?
Our US president is a fair man. BUT if you cross him or try to hurt him, he WILL strike back. He is also shrewd. He allows the mainstream media and the “feel good” liberals in this nation think he is a dunce and a bumbler – but he is always 4 or 5 steps ahead of them. China WILL pay. We just don’t know how yet.
