    When any action like this by USA, China has a simple response.

    China simply stops buying the billions of USA promissory notes, and has any shipments turned around at go back China.

    In within a month, probably less, the USA dollar becomes waste paper.

    American consumers lose drugs, medicines, essential goods.

    USA industry starts losing repair and installation of any equipment for our industries, including cars and airplanes.

    In 2 months, American leaders will go to China on their knees to beg for help.

    China will annex America as a territory with no political say, and America will be thrilled by the return of the XBOXES and Xanax!

    My great friend, why hiding the truth that the most deadly pandemic ever affecting mankind -- Kansas Virus -- originated in the US in 1918?

    Thanks America. Way to murder 50 million worldwide and about 675,000 Americans from 1918 - 1919 and call yourself a hero. :xd:

    Well said. Keep posting.

    Maybe Trump is mulling over the possibility of building a wall to surround the whole of America. :xd:

    From the rubbish posted by you, I am sure you are just a poster like everybody here. :xd:

    Fortunately, you are an expert, otherwise you would have gone the way of many doctors or experts on Covid-19 in the battle against the virus.

    My great friend, please do some research before spewing your rubbish onto this forum. :xd:

    The United States and the United Kingdom are major importers of wildlife products; a study of eBay purchases found that the U.S. is the end destination for more than two-thirds of the traffic in protected species.

    That may explain why "tens of thousands of Americans die of flu every year".

    ~ Most of us became suspicious when China refused U.S. scientists access to assist in preventing the outbreak. :frustrated::-(

    I once upon a time I was a Republican, but as Republicans slowly threw away their principles and chose ways of sneaky money, being happy to use illegals for cutting below minimum wage, avoiding safe care for work, watching workers, both legal and illegal, being damaged who then are fired with nothing, no attention to the streams and lakes I grew up in being trashed then the ripoff companies go bankrupt and who run away with cash after fake bankruptcies to clean out our once useful businesses.

    Then I watched the same companies take the jobs away often making 30 year employees teach the Chinese engineers learn the work and then fired the American workers and threw away those workers' 30 year pensions while the managers took millions into their own pockets.

    Now I listen to these same Republicans cry about how these jobs and "patents" that these avaristic businessmen had sold away for quick cash, who made billions selling out America are saying we need to go war against China and make them pay us (not workers, just the same ripoff businessmen who sold us working people out) so our troops should go out and die to defend Peabrains like Trump and his lickspittles who are now called "Trumpies", few who would ever go to war since they have invisible disabilities like "kiss Trump's butt" disability, just like Trump himself.

    No. The pathetic excuses Trumpies who try to justify Trump's Mr. Magoo decisions are just beyond belief! I will take anyone who gives something besides the current Idiots. Makes me glad I am old if this is the fate of my Country who I love from birth and still love now. If I am not a Patriot because Trump and his grifters make me sick, America is sick. I hope there is a Patriot who will help America go strong again!

    Not when the leftist media is blaming Trump for the global catastrophe and not China.

    That's funny Dave cause I used to be a Democrat till they started choosing illegal immigrants over American Citizens and overpopulating the state of NY so they could state pad their electoral votes. Now that the pandemic is here in full swing, the whole overpopulated state of NY is screwed.

    That being said, IIRC it was the Democrats that pushed for more H-B1 visas forcing out American workers from tech companies like Microsoft and many others. Can't blame it all on the Republicans. The Democrats are just as guilty.

    Not Fantasy, but not quite fact either, if China could do that, she would have long since.

    China needs us as much as we need China right now, but make no mistake, we are in a precarious position with regard to her. If she should stop using the dollar as her reserve currency we are totally ****ed.

    And being non-cooperative with her in regard to things like plagues is truly cutting off our nose to spite our face, China can afford to lose several million people, we cannot.

    So they can be non-cooperative with us by hiding information that would have saved millions of lives, but we need to be cooperative with them?

    Oh. So we should just ignore that this began in China due to their negligence. And we should not worry about it happening again.

    You’re right. This is no big deal. We were just making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    China initially concealed the severity of COVID-19, and some were duped into minimizing the threat and failing to take timely precautions and make needed preparations.

    The conservative Washington Times reported Trump's gushing kudos for the Communist leader at the time some were were more astute, like conservative Senator Tom "Picky" Cotton, were attempting to convince the Trump regime of the ominous reality.

    Trump lauds Chinese leader Xi amid coronavirus panic
    Screen Shot 2020-04-05 at 8.33.30 AM.png
    February 7, 2020

    ... Trump heaped praise on Chinese President Xi Jinping Friday and predicted the communist leader will be successful in combating the coronavirus that began in the city of Wuhan and has grown into a global health scare.

    Trump on Twitter said he had a “long and very good” conversation with Mr. Xi, a leader he frequently praises as a tough rival and advocate for the world’s No. 2 economy.

    “He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus. He feels they are doing very well, even building hospitals in a matter of only days,” Trump wrote. Nothing is easy, but he will be successful, especially as the weather starts to warm & the virus hopefully becomes weaker, and then gone!”

    “Great discipline is taking place in China, as President Xi strongly leads what will be a very successful operation,” Trump wrote. “We are working closely with China to help!”

    Later Friday, Trump told White House reporters he’s satisfied with China’s cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

    “We’re working together,”
    Trump said from the South Lawn. “It’s a tough situation, I think they’re doing a very good job!"

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/feb/7/donald-trump-lauds-chinese-leader-xi-jinping-amid-/

    Some, with ample justification, blame Xi for Trump's being bamboozled into minimizing, dismissing, and distorting the eminent threat to the U.S. rather than taking decisive, timely action.

    ~ Donald J. Trump should soon change his tune about China after this. If not it's likely to be at the peril of the U.S.

    Far from it, but he did study the reports of the U.S. intelligence services and recognized that Trump was being badly conned by Xi.

    Wow just wow reading this thread says a heck of a lot about some people on this board. Glad the ones came out of the wood work to show their true colors, it's very telling with all the Chinese propaganda. One little note, if China cut off exporting to America their economy crashes overnight. If they weakened our dollar their investment crashes overnight. This isn't a one way street and anyone not pushing propaganda knows it.

    My great friend, it seems that the Chinese authorities were suspicious of the US origin of the disease, and were worried that the US. scientists would erase all traces of evidence on the pretext of assisting in the prevention of outbreak.

    As the sole superpower with the supposedly best military in the world, the US dismal performance in the 2019 Military World Games in Wuhan would forever remain a historic puzzling question. It would definitely be an interesting subject for investigation by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes) if he could ever return from the great beyond. :skull:

    The US ranked No. 35 in the medal table, falling behind many third world countries such as North Korea, Bahrain, Iran, Kenya, Morocco, India, Namibia and Tunisia. :unclesam:

    My great friend, stop your bow-wow please. By the time the coronavirus outbreak is over, all countries including the US will be economically half-dead, not to mention finishing each other off economically by the so-called trade wars. :xd:

    Chinese propaganda, particularly by a respectable US military veteran? My dear Rip Van Winkle friend, wake up your idea!
