Except the experts don't believe it was man-made.

Just more distraction therapy from Trumpists

I wouldn't take that from a 10 y/o, let alone a government that acts younger than a 10 y/o.

My Trumper friends' FB posts have pivoted again to bragging how Trump has saved us despite all the liberal resistance. So you see, he was never told. He was telling us but we didn't listen, see? Who ya gonna believe, Trump or all that video tape?

Beside the point that this is incredibly irresponsible, once again the GOP will do absolutely anything to stay in power. Shooting war with China? Okay. Lie relentlessly? Okay. Kill millions of constituents? Okay.

Literally nothing matters but power.

And this dipshiat site, among others, sends in the trolls.

China's numbers were never believable. I find the idea that they downplayed the severity to stick up on their own supplies to be a plausible theory.

But, as others have pointed out, there isn't any scientific evidence the virus was created in a lab. I could see the possibility that Chinese scientists had discovered it and isolated it in a lab to study it, only to have it escape. Perhaps that's what the intelligence points to.
 
2020-05-03 8:06:17 PM  
People are confusing "escaped from a lab" with "created in a lab." Hollywood has apparently taught people that biological labs exist primarily to engineer deadly viruses, instead of studying existing ones.
 
2020-05-03 8:08:16 PM  
Yeah, no. It would take a slew of scientists with proof positive and a confession to make me believe that.
This is about shoring up election support for Trump, and odds are it's could blow up in our faces by having shortages of things China might refuse to trade.

Pompeo: "We've said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset. But I think the whole world can see now."

January 4, 2020: WHO reported on a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan. [Source: WHO]

January 9, 2020 WHO statement: "Chinese authorities have made a preliminary determination of a novel (or new) coronavirus, identified in a hospitalized person with pneumonia in Wuhan." [Source: WHO]

The US didn't say anything about the virus from the outset. China identified the new virus in Wuhan, and nobody has contested that. I think Pompeo is referring to the "grief" over the president's insistence on referring to SARS-CoV-2 as "the COVID-19", at a time when people of far east Asian descent were being assaulted around the world, particularly in the US, because of the disease.

Pompeo: "We can confirm that the Chinese Communist Party did all that it could to make sure that the world didn't learn in a timely fashion about what was taking place."

January 11, 2020: "a consortium of researchers published a draft genome of the newly discovered coronavirus." [Source: Science]

The first tests were being manufactured later that day, reasonably available in all functional developed nations within a week, and by January 17 the WHO had settled on a German design for tests sent to developing nations.

Nobody denies the screw-ups by the Wuhan government in December, and the Chinese government was plenty pissed about it too. In an ideal response, the world would have known about the outbreak almost a month earlier, but the US postponed any meaningful testing or action other than an extremely limited flight ban until more than two months after China had shared all pertinent knowledge they had about the virus.
 
2020-05-03 8:30:31 PM  
This has been one of the toughest things for me.  Accepting that these people really are that stupid.  I used to think they were just liars and a-holes.
 
2020-05-03 8:31:27 PM  
This ain't Hollywood. They had a breach in protocol at a non-military legitimate research lab and the person went home that night and you can guess the rest.  The trumpanzees want you to believe this is all a grade b sci-fi flick to draw attention away from the epic fail the response has been. Cheetolini can't deal with his impotent performance being recognized.
 
2020-05-03 8:33:16 PM  
If true then the Trump Administration has a moral imperative to release all this "evidence" to researchers developing vaccines and treatment drugs to for Covid-19 since if it was manufactured having this information would be vital to quickly getting these to market.

But of course the Trump Administration lacks all morals so that would never happen.

T Baggins: ...snip... the president's insistence on referring to SARS-CoV-2 as "the COVID-19" ...snip...


Ugh, Fark automatically swaps "COVID-19" when you use the two words the president uses to refer to the virus. I get the auto-filter of the N-word, F-word, and S-word, but this just inhibits adult discourse, plus it's not even a valid substitution, putting the name of the disease in place of the president's term for the virus that causes the disease. It's like conflating HIV and AIDS.

China did cover up the outbreak, but US intelligence agencies knew about  it and tried many times to warn the Trump administration. Trump didn't want to hear about it because he was in the middle of a trade deal with China.

China lied. Trump was bribed, and soon a hundred thousand Americans will have died.

Lookit... I am almost certain China did some coverup work initially. It's what they do but once they realized it COULD be a global risk they notified the WHO. So whatever. Commies be commies.

I am also willing to entertain the possibility it was something being studied in the Wuhan lab and some human error allowed it to escape. Massive grain of salt on that one though and since this is a novel virus they may have just detected it and were DOING THEIR JOBS by analyzing it.

The "man made" part is utter boolsh*t and is exactly the type of rhetoric that will start a war with a country you all cannot afford to be fighting.

I mean... YIKES!
 
2020-05-03 10:19:43 PM  
From what I've read, the experts seem to believe it was not man made nor bio-engineered.  That does not mean that it may be a naturally occurring virus that still escaped from a lab.  However, Pompeo should show the evidence and allow it to be examined by other experts. I've no doubt that the Chinese downplayed the extent of the problem but again show us the evidence.

FTFA: When asked whether he believes the Chinese were behind the intentional creation of the virus, Pompeo responded, "Look, the best experts so far seem to think it was man-made. I have no reason to disbelieve that at this point."

No they don't, you lying asshole.  How about you take your nose out of Trump's ass for a minute and read your own intelligence community's findings?

The entire Intelligence Community has been consistently providing critical support to U.S. policymakers and those responding to the COVID-19 virus, which originated in China. The Intelligence Community also concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the COVID-19 virus was not manmade or genetically modified.
