intensity of the current anti-China campaign reminds one
of the run up to the war on Iraq. The people who now
claim that 'China lied, people died' are
the very same who ran
the Iraq WMD campaign. But all the reports claiming
Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were just fantasy. The
reports of Chinese culpability are similar nonsense.

sent critical medical supplies to China as Americans
continue to suffer. He needs to follow his supposed
motto of America First,” American Bridge President
Bradley Beychok said in a statement. “We’re making
sure that voters across Michigan, Pennsylvania, and
Wisconsin know full well not only how badly Trump
botched this crisis, but also how badly he bent the
knee to China in the midst of it as well.”
“We are more than happy to let the American public
decide whom they trust, President Trump or Beijing
Joe Biden, to get tough on China,” said Brian O.
Walsh, president of America First, in response to
the new ad campaign by American Bridge. American
Bridge said the ad is the first of its new offensive
campaign targeting Trump, his company, business
associates and adult children over their ties to
China and other foreign investments.
said it plans on rolling out microtargeted digital
ads on that theme as part of “an all-out assault on
Trump and his family over their corruption — in
China and other countries — involving foreign
bribes, political favors, shady real estate
investments, and parties with dictators.”
This will be
bad for other important political issues:

China hawkishness is going to drown out progressive
momentum for universal healthcare and cancelling
student debt. Like Russiagate, this new yellow peril
will lead to greater military spending and more war.
Sad so many who should know better can’t see that.

January 3 the head of the U.S. Center of Disease Control
was personally informed by his Chinese counterpart that
there was an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown cause in
Wuhan. On January 8 the "unknown cause" was identified
as a novel coronavirus. A full genome sequence of the
virus was published on January 12 and preliminary
testing kits were developed and made available in Wuhan.
By January 13 another
test and test protocol had been developed
in Germany and on January 17 the WHO adopted
its refined version.
