"Pompeo says ‘enormous evidence’ shows coronavirus began in Wuhan lab




Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said “enormous evidence” exists indicating the coronavirus pandemic began in a lab in Wuhan, China and that the ruling Communist Party did everything it could to keep the outbreak under wraps.
“There’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began. We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset. But I think the whole world can see now,” he said on ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday.

“Remember, China has a history of infecting the world, and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.”
After the first cases were reported in Wuhan in December, Pompeo said Beijing began a “disinformation” campaign that “created enormous risk” around the world.

“China behaved like authoritarian regimes do, attempted to conceal and hide and confuse. It employed the World Health Organization as a tool to do the same. These are the kind of things that have now presented this enormous crisis, an enormous loss of life and tremendous economic cost, all across the globe,” Pompeo said.

The risk that this lab posed to the world was first reported in 2007, IIRC.

IMO the only real questions that remain are:

Was the release of the virus intentional, or accidental?

What was the purpose of the cover up? Save face? Corner the market on PPE's? Destroy the USA economy and further the dream of Chiner being the "only sun in the sky?"

Many orders of magnitude more people will die as a result of this than did at Chernobyl. We'll see how the cost of the two shake out in about 1-2 years.

Communist China’s leaders have very little regard for human life or human rights except their own. IMHO, Communist China (leaders, not the people) is our enemy and always will be, I do not trust them or anything they say, and never will. I also think COVID-19 pandemic was not an accident, but will be made to look like one. I also think sometime in the next 25 years we will probably be in a military conflict/war with China over Taiwan. US business needs to get out of China ASAP.

Cover ups are endemic to Government. Worse, probably in totalitarian governments like China. But, it happens here too.

Back in Nixon's day, the thought was, "Well, we'll get into China and they'll see how well capitalism works and their system will crumble when their people realize how bad Communism is."
Great theory ... that is one of history's greatest failures.
What happened instead was that China used our desire to produce cheaper goods to enrich the Communist Party and strengthen their grip of their subjects using sophisticated technology, much of which has been stolen from us.
Brilliant.

There is an old saying that goes,

" No plan survives first contact with the enemy. "

look at the evidence we all have.

First, The ChiComs said this virus originated in the Wuhan wet market. But then they reopened the wet markets while NY is experiencing massive Wuflu deaths.

Second, they first blamed the Wuhan wet market, then later start a propaganda campaign that the virus was brought to Wuhan by an American.

From these 2 facts alone, it's obvious the wet market was not the source. And considering their coronavirus lab is right nearby the market, what would any reasonable person suspect?

And the issue is that the ChiComs KNEW this, and yet allowed international flights out of Wuhan while stopping all domestic travel.

China must pay.

The only way China "pays" is by being beaten in war. That will be a huge conflict. And with the potential to go nuclear. China doesn't give a rip about world opinion and has no compulsions about fair play or loss of lives.

One way to do it. The other is to dust off some pre Cold War strategy documents and implement them against China instead of Eastern Europe and USSR. If the world stops buying their cheap crap they starve like the USSR did. Takes decades of commitment though. Something we don’t have. We seem to like communism these days.

au contraire! there are many ways to make China pay.

1. erase the debt to China
2. levy huge tariffs to all products from China or with any value added from China
3. dont allow Chinese to invest in the USA
4. eliminate Chinese student visas (and the benefit is that your kid might actually be able to attend a top university!)
5. make it so uncomfortable for people to return from China that they won't want to go there in the first place (i.e. mandatory 2 week quarantine on arrival, and a $10,000 deposit to cover expenses related to re-entry..such as medical care)
6. seize any gov tied assets
7. make money transfers to China go through a painful (and taxed) procedure the same as they do for money transfers from China to the USA

the list goes on.

basically, make this country so difficult to do business in/with that investors and manufacturers will go elsewhere.

it's time we cut ties with China and stop feeding our enemy.
