Chinese restaurants have already been targeted, there is talk of militia-but if they want to economically try to screw us fine-we'll take our business elsewhere.


Well, this is just ridiculous and primitive. No matter what the outcome of this is, you should not take it out on innocent chinese people in whatever country!

See, it's stuff like this which makes me wonder about this whole Wu-Flu thing! The world is upside down. Everything is backwards! Crazy!

China holds way too much debt from other countries. The worst thing they could do is piss off that country by threatening some kind of economic punishment. These are sovereign countries for cripes sakes! All they would have to do is write-off some, or all, of that debt and there's not a gawd damned thing the ChiComs could do about it! It's not like they're going to come marching in and start repossessing stuff...they can't. It makes no sense!

In the case of Australia, I completely disagree with the poster above who says the US doesn't have their back. China makes one move on Australia and the US is going to rain fire on China!

Even with that said, China exports way more goods to Australia than Australia exports to China. What's the biggest export to China from Australia? Beef? What? Now let's look at what China exports to Australia...freaking everything! Australia can shut China's pie hole in a NY second just by responding with..."Okay, if you're not going to import our stuff, well, then we won't import YOUR stuff, China!" End of discussion...game over! Just that fast. NEXT?

Makes no sense. No sense at all.

It is a bit complicated I'm afraid. China buys raw minerals from us that represents a pretty substantial chunk of our GDP. A Chinese boycott will throw Australia into a dire economic situation.

The Chinese government needs to be held accountable for the state of the world
if there wasn't an early coverup we wouldn't be in this mess.

Not nearly as bad as it would jack up China's production machine! They'd never stop buying commodities. That would be the very last thing they'd stop doing!

And that's just it, I've long said we (the world) should be putting big export tariffs on raw materials exports to China. If they want to wipe out everyone's labor markets, well, then they're gonna' pay for it! If they want to turn around and put big export tariffs on their finished goods exports, well, then China may no longer be able to cut the legs out from under competition from national markets with more civilized labor practices. Win-win.

ETA - Import tariffs on manufactured goods only hurt businesses internally by driving up the cost to do business. Drop the import tariffs and impose export tariffs. That way the money never goes off-shore. China will then be forced to adjust their pricing accordingly, and the competitive marketplace will be on a more level playing field.

Yeah nothing to do eith the fact we knew about this virus way before it hit our countries. Suppose it's China fault that leaders like Trump and Boris Johnson did not take it seriously at first.

Our leaders have to take the blame also for how they handled this.

And we'll seize every asset China has... and maybe if they're lucky we won't invade them.

Toppling their commie gov and putting their "officials" on trial for this is the least we should do, frankly. Let them meet the same cold, snappy, decisive end Saddam did.

They're not in a position to threaten anyone. Unfortunately, the guilty frequently act this way. And re-opening those disgusting, backwards "wet markets" shows criminal malice on their behalf.

Stop eating pets. Stop selling food in creepy, slimy "wet markets". Use grocery stores. Modern. First world. AKA, not China

If there's an American Congressional investigation... they won't have to threaten America.

The Mandarins who have completely infiltrated the American political class, mostly the left, but MANY on the "right", will make sure America loses out and China is given the soft glove treatment.

Remember... this Bad Orange Man DEMANDING that China start following the existing regulations on trade, and taking retaliatory action when the WTO won't enforce the rules that they already have on the books... was spun by Wall Street and the Davos crowd as a "trade war".

In other words... wanting China to adhere to the EXISTING rules that everyone including China agreed to, in order to get "most favored nation" trading status, is considered a "trade war" by those who have made trillions of dollars in the last 30 years through hollowing out American manufacturing and destroying the Blue Collar middle class.

Yeah, an illegal invasion that turned Iraq into a hell whole, responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women and children. Not to mention the fact that this gave rise to ISIS.

Yeah, great job there! Are you really that gullible to believe that my country and your country invaded Iraq to free the poor people?


Stop eating pets.


Eating pets? Are you saying all chinese eat dog? Do you eat pork/bacon? Pigs are just as intelligent as dogs, and can be domesticated. But that's ok because your culture says it's ok?

Look, folks, we're not talking war here. The last thing the human race needs is a war with nuclear weapons all over the place.

We need sober and wise leadership from all sides. Unfortunately, such attributes are rare in the world presently.

SO, the populace in some form has to get wise and sober and from amongst the lowly, the ordinary---we must rise up into universal wisdom and insight or our world will crumble like a volcano into the throes of fiery death.

Mot going to happen! Most people are brainwashed and conditioned by their country, and this means we will always have wars, invasions and hatred, and the people of a country will always sweep their own government horrors under the carpet, while branding another country evil.

Until people wake up, this is always going to happen.

I get the feeling China will just copy the US play book here.

Sorry, no international investigations allowed.

You’re absolutely right it's probably not going to happen but its like the chicken and the egg conundrum: we have to wake up but how will we wake up when everybody or most are asleep in a nightmare.

Why point fingers in the first place? Those evil communists took that as an insult? Poor Australians, learn some manners and pipe up!

From our beloved category "fun with evil commies and old news":


Dire risk is compounded by climate crisis, urbanisation and lack of sanitation, says global monitoring board

Experts warn world ‘grossly unprepared’ for future pandemics

There was lots of prophetic stuff like this in my news feeds half a year ago, only more reasons to hold our own gubbermints accountable. Nice deflection tho. Praise our benevolent capitalists and their an... probes! Just probes poking around with freedom fingers...

Ironically Australia and New Zealand both also closed all travel from China and other foreigners. But they were not accused of "being racists" since both of these countries are very left-wing. Anyway, just like Iran did, China wants any investigation into how COVID-19 was released shut down not just because they were studying COVID-19, since information about them studying this disease has been known for quite a while and it was public knowledge. But it's very possible that they in fact could have released the virus on purpose.

Why would they release it on purpose? Why would they want to mess up the world's economy, one thst their own economy relies on so much? It makes no sense at all.

Now, I know that some people want this to be true because a war with China excites them, but it's not going to happen.
