;-) Oh dear, poor you if you take #BreakingNews seriously. They're the idiots who gave us the exclusive news that Kim Il Jong was dead. They specialise in nonsense.

Nothing to do with "Breaking News".

Your genocidal friends have chopped off the legs of the Labour Party and are remaking it in your genocidal image.

You're a mother-fukker.

Somehow or other - perhaps straightforward McCarthism - your genocidal friends got hold of the Labour Party and wrecked it.

A confidential report commissioned by the Department of Defence predicted medical shortages, panic-buying and mass job losses a year before the COVID-19 outbreak ... She says the risks to Australia are snowballing, with climate change, US-China tensions and the rise of nationalist governments among the key threats to global stability.

Pity the Ozzies are so intimidated by the US that they refuse to defend China.

Which is being forced to militarise by the US, using nuclear weapons on its neighbours and threatening the world with its 12 carrier groups.

This is the actual report - again, heavily biased towards paranoia about the yellow people.

As COVID-19 races around the world, infecting millions, it finds the vulnerable - and that includes whole nations too, writes Melissa Clarke ... Countries with pre-existing conditions — poverty, limited healthcare, ineffective or corrupt governments — are fragile, and it is these countries that COVID-19 is threatening to push to the brink of survival. Some have argued the United States has made solid start on the journey to failed state status. But for the Australian Government, the real concerns lie just to the north: Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Despite their obvious differences, both are at risk of becoming failed states because of the potential for a rapid decay of health, economic circumstances and — in a worst-case scenario — disintegrating public order. In Canberra, thoughts have turned to what would happen if either country plunged into chaos. It is not an indicator of the likelihood, but a rather recognition that Australia's proximity to the countries means the possibility can't be ignored.

Why are the problems of these countries treated as being more of a problem than the US dysfunction as, I have long argued, is terminal and bound to end in really serious tears?

This week China referred to Australia as "gum on the bottom of its shoe" (paraphrasing).

Because we support a full independent inquiry into how Covid started and became a global pandemic.

This includes a full investigation into all systemic failures of international bodies, such as the WHO.

Fuck China for threatening my country.

No you don't. We already have a reasonable scientific explanation of what's happened. If its wrong and this was really an escape of a biological weapon then we're certainly not going to find it with any kind of inquiry that we could mount.

Jenifer (Zarknorph) said:

We know the problem with WHO - it has no statutory basis, no treaty binds anyone to cooperating with it.

That's not going to change - and we know why. Never mind what China wants to cover up, the US and Israel have big biological WMD program and they're never going to agree access to their labs.

Jenifer (Zarknorph) said:

That's not what's happened. And you cannot have it both ways - after SARS there was a strong possibility of another CoronaVirus coming out of China. After MERS it could come from anywhere.

If our countries neither prepared for a Coronavirus pandemic, nor acted as if it was real, you cannot turn round and accuse China of "threating my country".
