Default China and the coronavirus

I rather doubt that we will ever know for certain just how the coronavirus got started; but I have a hunch that China was working on a bioweapon--and the virus just got loose. At that point, China--which has no regard for human life--apparently allowed foreigners to come to Wuhan, in order to spread the virus throughout the world.

This is, admittedly, just speculation. But it makes quite a bit of sense to me.

Too conspiracy theory for me...Virus' don't "just get loose"...

If this was intended, the pathogens and any virus material would've never been out in the open outside that lab...It would've been in briefcases carried around the world with major safety precautions until they were opened up on foreign soil...

IMHO this is a conspiracy theory meant to take our minds off other stuff and to blame someone else but Trump. Also if corps can get another war that's a bonus.
I think they are playing with fire in goading China. the state dept. made a statement about Hong Kong, something all other leaders in decades have avoided to KEEP THE PEACE. Not coming down on one side or the other is a foreign policy that has worked.
Whatever our beef with them, China as you know has nukes and a large army.
I would think twice before starting a fight with them.

That is the attitude that has got us to where we currently are. Appease the dictatorial government hoping they are nice to us. Hasn't worked and never will.

Well, only in this (rather limited) sense: Communist China's Politburo (just 25 people) may have "conspired" to do this. (It "conspires" to do many things that are anti-Western.)

Everything always manages to come back to President Trump, to someone with TDS...

China has no intention--none at all--of starting a nuclear war. It is downright silly to imagine that it might.

And its "large army" is enormously underequipped--nothing at all like the American army.

Can anyone seriously imagine the Chinese army landing in, say, California, or perhaps North Carolina, intent upon starting a shooting war?

Someone has been watching too many movies.
