it was still Xi Jinpig's responsibility to keep the virus contained

'Fraid not. It had already left China before Chinese officials even knew it existed.  It was, however, the responsibility of the pandemic response network to coordinate multinational containment efforts, something that no single nation of Earth is actually responsible for.  Would have been nice to have something like that, especially now that there are more Variants popping up than even the TVA contended with.

Ok then, but how do we make him pay for all his other bullshit? How the fuck do we keep him away from Taiwan without killing him?

1. You do not.

2. Well, in WW2, the US sold England all sorts of military hardware so we could defend the island.  The same option could work for Taiwan as well; as an island nation, they have a defensive advantage.  It would prevent them from becoming dependent on the presence of foreign soldiers (unlike the Afghanistan approach), but it would increase a military presence in their waters while the hardware is transported.  Since this is purely a financial transaction, that military presence would not be provocative (though the Chinese government would certainly howl about it anyways) and passively act as a deterrence against an invasion.  The new tech would complicate any military offensive against Taiwan, and Taiwan could be extended a similar deal as England as far as selling items on credit with interest rates they should easily afford.  

Personally I prefer diplomacy, but if you are hellbent on a military solution, this one is viable and can help all sides avoid armed conflict.

There's no way the COVID timeline corroborates that claim.



Anyone keeping track of the "Where is ron" trend? About where Ron Desantis is? It's pretty interesting.

He cancelled a meeting the 17th and hasn't been seen once. His account tweeted out about him being at a ohio bagel shop yesterday but that took place three weeks ago.
Today the tweeted about him watching a Friday night lights football game in Florida. But that was... three weeks ago.

His PR tweeted out that he was busying in meetings.. but also was allowed to take any amount of vacation he wanted too.

There effort to "show him" is actually making it far more suspicious imo.

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Have they checked Cancun?

1. You do not.

So we just let him get away with murder and genocide instead of the way we dealt with dictators back in WWII? You're saying we just sit back and let him eventually fuck over everyone else and accept that the world is a shithole?

The dictators in WWII didn't have nuclear weapons, and the ability to destroy the world with a few button presses.

So I just have to accept that the world sucks and can't do anything to fix it? Yeah, that's fun. -_-

Just have to accept that there's not always an easy answer, and sometimes the most we can hope for is slow, but meaningful progress.

Even if part of that progress is hoping the worst scumbags in the world die slowly and painfully? That's all I've got left to use against them. -_-
