At Thursday's presentation Trump claimed that his 'sources' told him that the origin of the virus was from the Wuhan labs, but when quizzed yesterday Scomo said that his information suggested this wasn't the case although couldn't rule it out 100%. I wonder when their next phone hookup is !!

Both stories have been around from the start...as has the Chinese story that the US caused it.

And I read one story in which a Russian scientist claimed it was a joint US Chinese collaboration, and the release of the virus was accidental

Nothing would surprise me, but I also won't be surprised if us mere mortals, many of whose lives have been turned upside down, will ever know.

In other parts of the world, we might get the truth and transparency, but from Wuhan...it's doubtful.

More important to learn how tho manage it, or maybe eliminate it...ultimately.

Altho, of course, if the source is ever established, you could hope that lessons are learned, and protocols are established  to ensure it doesn't happen again.

This is scary...

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday directed China's armed forces to strengthen training of troops and to be ready for war amid coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic's visible impact on the world's most populous country's national security.

State media reports quoted the Chinese premier as saying that it was important to "comprehensively strengthen the training of troops and prepare for war", "resolutely safeguard national sovereignty" and "safeguard the overall strategic stability of the country

Got to love the Prez using the same language that was used in 1967 by the Miami police chief re: black protesters.

"When the looting starts, the shooting starts".

Good to see he's doing his best to calm the situation.

:fool::rolleyes:

At one point, the camera lying on the ground, on its side, still rolling...everything topsy turvy, with smoke billowing from blazing police precinct buildings in the background...

A striking, but sad  visual metaphor for the nation, I think.

America seems to be breaking in two right now. I’m not sure how you would heal such division and hatred and fear. The current leadership only is interested in widening the divide and the conspiracy lovers among them are rife on Twitter right now blaming everyone but themselves. 
Trump in the meantime is being a crybaby because twitter won’t let him lie freely, accuse people of murder and threaten to murder protesters. Only in America.

So Biden visits the protests sites and talks to people and Trump goes into the bunker under the White House. There is something desperately wrong with America when you need a stand in leader. He didn’t lead in the Pandemic, now not in the riots either. They are rudderless.
