I’ve been reluctant to write this post. Whenever this happens, whenever I become hesitant, I know there’s something I absolutely need to articulate. Not wanting to be Jonah by refusing to go to Nineveh, the following is my treatise.
Throughout the USA, there is a great deal of anger about how the World Health Organization (WHO) has acted, essentially becoming the public relations agency for the Chinese concerning COVID-19. Praising the response of the Chinese to the pandemic, the WHO has made themselves complicit in the coverup of what actually happened in Wuhan, China.
This raises several questions. Why would the WHO allow themselves to become enablers for the Chinese Communists? What would motivate the WHO to do something like this? It’s a complete repudiation of their responsibility. And why would this enabling be necessary? Why not just let the chips fall where they may? After all, this was a natural occurrence wasn’t it? Or was it?
By coming to the defense of the Chinese, by essentially providing cover for the Chinese response to COVID-19, the WHO has actually provided ammunition for those who believe the pandemic was biological warfare and has nothing to do with the wet market and the nonsensical story of someone eating an undercooked bat.
With the economy of the United States decimated, as well as the economies of all of the European democracies, through this “act of God,” the economic position of the Chinese has been miraculously reversed. It was reeling just a few months ago, but now—thanks to COVID-19—the Chinese are poised to rebound and overtake the USA as the dominant economic power in the world. This will allow them to impose their will and their “Big Brother” 5G network throughout the West via Huawei.
How fortunate for the Chinese and how unfortunate for the USA and the Western democracies. Because the stakes are so high and because of the fecklessness of Democrats and nearly all of the European leaders, the Chinese are poised to get away with what they have planned to further their ambitions to dominate the world. All that stands in their way is President Donald Trump and perhaps Prime Minister Boris Johnson, if he survives his COVID-19 infection.
As precarious as our situation is in the USA, it is miniscule when compared to what the Chinese have in store for us, if they win this pandemic war. In response to this covert sneak attack against us, our response must be strong and decisive, but it must be economic and not military. Nobody wants global thermonuclear war.
Starting immediately, as well as defunding the WHO, we must focus our economic power on isolating China. We can do this by moving our manufacturing of non-essential items to friendlier countries and our essential items, like medical supplies, back to the USA. Unwisely, we have trusted the Chinese to act responsively for decades, refusing to pay attention to their commitment to dominate the world.
Having paid a terrible price for doing so, we have no alternative but to disengage from our dependence upon them—no matter what it costs to do so. Like a heroin addiction, we have become increasingly reliant on the Chinese. Also like a heroin addiction, withdrawal will be painful but not as painful as allowing them to dominate the land of the free and the home of the brave. It’s time to fight back and fight back to win.
