Why politicians should be wary of publicly pursuing the Wuhan lab-leak investigation | The Conversation - June 7, 2021 |

The theory that SARS-CoV-2 originally leaked out of a laboratory in Wuhan, China, is making a comeback - so much so that President Joe Biden has publicly ordered the US intelligence community to "redouble" its investigations into this hypothesis. Politicians, however, should be wary of publicly advocating the Wuhan lab-leak hypothesis. In doing so, they risk fuelling groundless and dangerous conspiracy theories.

Capitalism and Political Incompetence No 10

See update below: Downing Street #10 didn’t follow science nor advice from SAGE experts ...

The Bull of herd immunity was advocated by the Trump administration, UK's Boris Johnson and Oxford "math" which in turn was parroted on the hour by Conservative PM Mark Rutte in The Netherlands.

Real people died unnecessarily, especially to loved one's grandparents and elderly in homes of Care. Nurses were confronted with unspeakable trauma and number of patients without the normal level of PPE. Greed and cronyism delivered tens of millions of pounds in deep pockets without delivering on substance of the contract to the NHS and Healthcare.

How the Biden Win Saved the King!

by Oui Wed May 26th, 2021 at 06:03:12 PM EST

Trump and Kushner teamed up with Abu Dhabi and Crown Prince Salman to reshape the Middle East the Zionist way.

In a single century from tribes in the Arabian Sands to unheard of wealth reaching the twinkling stars of heaven. Nearly upsetting a Holy Land where peace should be symbolized by the three religions of Abraham with a center of worship in Jerusalem. Instead it was greed and lust for power from a handful of inhumane persons in an attempt to upset the crafted balance of historical development. The fascist regime of Israel and authoritarian Sheikhdoms of the Emirates and Saudi Arabia that connived to remove King Abdullah II of Jordan.

US Joe Biden Partners with Israel in Gaza Carnage

by Oui Mon May 17th, 2021 at 06:44:13 PM EST

Happened before during the Bush and Obama administration. Shipping arms and munitions to replenish stocks used by Israel to crush the Palestinian people in Gaza. Unconscionable ... immoral ... equates to war crimes and/or complicit to bombing civilians. The United States will live with impunity, Israeli leaders will be judged by the International Criminal Court in The Hague. The White House and U.S. Congress will always stand by Israel to avoid prosecution.

The arms sale, which Congress was notified of on May 5, a week before the current Israel-Palestinian escalation began, includes Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), which are used to turn bombs into precision-guided missiles.

Resetting US-China Relations ... Again

by Oui Mon May 3rd, 2021 at 07:43:16 AM EST

After ping-pong diplomacy under Nixon/Kissinger the Western world was urged to find compatible markets for manufacturing of cheap goods. The left protests followed against globalization and undermining workers rights. The third way under Tony Blair and Bill Clinton gave way to capitalism uniting after 9/11 attacks with populist politicians. Big tech and social media further undermined democracy and a rules based international order. Policy failures over half a century with unnecessary wars and conflicts placed the world in chaos ... it destroys nations, the means of living and displacement of families for survival. China has taken advantage of staying out of foreign conflicts and are building infrastructure, new cities and industrial complexes beyond anyone's imagination.

Uyghur Muslim Ethnic Separatism in Xinjiang

by Oui Fri Apr 30th, 2021 at 02:42:47 PM EST

Does remind me of the US and NATO allies designating Islamist fighters in Chechnya as "Freedom Fighters" in the civil war against the Russian Republic after 1990. As a result, EU countries have accepted up to 100,000 Chechen refugees or asylum seekers. More later.

The Russian government under Yeltsin and later Putin destroyed much of Grozny to root out terror of separatism and defeat the Sunni Jihadists from across the Islamic world. Not the Shia forces of Iran, but the Sunni fighters trained in Afghanistan and elsewhere by Western allies under leadership of the CIA and US Armed Forces.

Outcry for Genocide Should Be Universal

by Oui Wed Apr 28th, 2021 at 12:57:02 PM EST

Criticism and protest should be genuine based on human rights, not used as a tool of propaganda for a political goal or commercial profit.

There is a historic link between colonialism and oppression of minorities. Today in the 21th century, it's universal and there should be a major effort to clean house first. Hypocrisy in policy set by politicians is so very obvious it is quite ridiculous. What's often missing is historic content.

So Joe Biden is the first president to call Armenian genocide ... genocide!
