Vladimir Putin once called Xi Jinping, a "lone warrior." ... That description is starting to look more and more accurate. Russia has now joined about 100 countries in backing a resolution at the upcoming World Health Assembly (WHA), calling for an independent inquiry into the coronavirus pandemic.

Investigate China for sure. Where does that leave Trump's trade deal with them--in limbo?:

It will be fascinating to read a report that is not allowed to say either "China" or "Wuhan" because, you know, racism.

@#2 ... Investigate China for sure. ...

Yup.

Providing it is a proper investigation.

If the investigation is like the one Pres Trump wants, i.e., go in to the investigation with the conclusion and then look only for the evidence that validates the predetermined conclusion, then we don't need an investigation like that.

Since it seems that other counties, besides the United States, are leading the effort, it may be more of a real investigation, i.e., go where the evidence leads.

100 countries? I've said it before, China will face a reckoning over this.

"and any highly critical report would have a disastrous effect on China's global standing."

Whatever.
Labor cost speaks louder than global standing.
At least, it does if you're a Capitalist.

The only thing allowed is when certain deadbeats ridicule another person's skin color and body shape.

But wait, the DR Left continued to defend, to use JPW's spelling, "Chyna" since the beginning and we were repeatedly told that talking about China being the origin of the Rona was racist.

Is that no longer valid guidance from Priorities USA?

I'm only aware of one person defending China, and that is President Donald J. TRUMP

I thought the use of "Chyna" was meant to mock Trump's pronunciation of the word, no?

It's interesting that the Aussies, using the Five Eyes intelligence, is pushing hard for this. This will not end well for Xi or their parrots in the MSMDNC.

@#9 ... I'm only aware of one person defending China ...

When you say "defending China" you probably need to be more specific.

For example, in my instance...

I think that China intentionally hid or covered up the extent of the virus disaster in the early stages, and that China could have drastically reduced the extent of the infection within China and worldwide if that had acted more quickly and more extensively.

I do not think that China intentionally created this virus (i.e., it's "man-made") and/or brought it to the United States intentionally.

I do not have a problem with saying that China was the origin of the virus. I do have a problem, however, with so many of the right wing who use the Chinese origin to threaten and discriminate against Asians here in the United States.

No, we didn't.

No wonder you don't understand why your worldview is toxic, you can't even comprehend arguments when they're explicitly stated multiple times.

Correct.

Like most of reality it flew right over RoC's head.

And it's Chy-Nuh.

@#15 ... Yawn. ...

Unfortunately, the RightOCenter alias has these past few weeks has convinced me that the purpose of the alias is to troll here.

That purpose is unlike the posts of that alias, further back in time, when it was fun (and I learned things!) when I jousted with it.

Instead of presenting a thought-out view, nowadays the alias just seems to be more of a parrot.

Oh well...

Not true. Personally, I think this is needed. Chinese response should to be investigated, but unfortunately, pretty sure nothing will come of it. What the world needs to do is to back Australia and stop China dependence.

Mebbe we could get Gohmert to chair the inquisition. That would be cool for any number of reasons, among them having him explain to the world why China is at fault, but the USA is not.

Is it Five Eyes intelligence though? Link:

www.theguardian.com

Extract: "The Australian government has pushed back at US claims the coronavirus may have originated in a Wuhan lab and has determined that a "dossier" giving weight to the theory is not a Five Eyes intelligence document."

Maybe it's part of a plot to get Trump re-elected. Link:

www.irishtimes.com

Extract: "This is all about US presidential politics ... using an intelligence leak pushing Chinese culpability, laundered through a foreign country, turbocharged with the credibility factor of being an alleged Five Eyes product, helps the partisan political cause. And let's be clear: Murdoch is campaigning full-bore for Trump."
