The same WHO that had the sheer bloody genius to OK the reopening of the wet markets in Wuhan: :shock:

Confirmation in another British newspaper: the Australian government is shocked:

I mean: what are those WHO officials thinking? Or rather: smoking? Why are we funding irresponsible fools like that in the first place?

Those wet markets should be nuked to hell by the Chinese government. Eradicated from the face of the earth, for all eternity. By the full merciless force of the Chinese dictatorship. But no: do the Chinese leaders perhaps like the occasional fresh bat sandwich themselves, or something?

This made me lose all trust in both the Chinese government and the World Health Organisation. :evil:

Yeah once your taking in anything from those kind of sources you might as well be only watching Fox News as well and basing your reality on that mix (basically you become like many in the USA!). They are designed to make people angry and act without thinking deeply on a topic.

Science and reason loses, and it all becomes about manipulation of the masses on the slow slide into chaos and anarchy. We are not THAT far from that reality right now actually. It's going to get messy and dangerous over the next few months, maybe in a society collapses kind of way if the fake news media circus is not ignored or stopped?

TDLR = The USA needed someone to blame it's failings on (because it has none) and the WHO is a good target (plays well with his home support). Next it will likely be the UN in the firing line, as the reason for these targets is to weaken a united world and create an extreme form of divide and rule.

The various media outlets promoting this narrative are part of the problem imho, which is why i never read them, give them any credit for reliable sources.

I really wish I liked The Guardian's editorial style more as the paper is vastly more honest than most and always has been. 😔

Perhaps you can accept it from Down Under. One of the Aussie sources:
https://www.sbs.com.au/news/morrison-ch ... -epicentre

It's true. Too many independent sources confirm this.

By the way: I find that even sensationalist news papers ordinarily refrain from lying. The wrapping they put on their news may be sensationalist, but the factual core is usually correct.

I was in our local chemist yesterday and commented to our Chemist that these days if someone walked in with a mask on, sunnies and a hat, would he know how to respond? He thought I was talking about Corona virus until I said, no, and pointed a finger at him. He understood, and agreed, it does make it more difficult. For that fact, he did say that he has been held up a number of times, one time a bloke held a knife to his throat, so no laughing matter, really.

Yet apparently the WHO are also warning against reopening live animal wet markets. Who to believe or is the situation just more complex than the gutter media can process? I suspect the latter. Many SE Asian 'wet' markets are just food markets with no live animals exotic or otherwise involved. Anyway the WHO has got F-All authority to enforce shutdown or allow reopening in any case so these stories are in the WALOB category already.
