Documents published by a scientist group probing Covid-19’s origins reveal that controversial US non-profit EcoHealth Alliance had sought $14 million in 2018 for a project that would expose Chinese bats to altered coronaviruses.

To answer X51 saying I pick “such reputable news source”.

I admit, RT should have Russian with English subtitles in their videos instead of what they have now. And a lot of /r/Sino reddit users like to post links from Bloomberg/WaPo/MSNBC, but as time goes on, it should improve considering where the world is headed.

Also, sometimes those news sources like ‘the Guardian’ need to be to be mocked for how much in denial about their economic situation they have become. Today’s example below:


‘Don’t panic’: business minister bids to calm crisis fears as UK gas prices soar

The government was scrambling on Saturday night to reassure Britons that rising gas prices would not plunge the country into an energy crisis, as ministers held a series of emergency meetings with energy companies and regulators to establish whether the nation could keep the lights and central heating on this winter.


Oh sure, no crisis to see here. We’re just holding multiple emergency meetings.

Could someone provide any thoughts on this? I don’t know what to believe from it.

“The goal was to study and prevent transmission to humans” …so apparently there was no evil intent

And you believe them?

    这个论坛目前由一个不会说中文的人主持,他不是共产党员,而是一个反帝国主义、反附庸国的欧盟联邦主义者,他似乎在任何地方都找不到立足点,因为他国家的所有政党都是亲美附庸国的,所以暂时居住在这里。

    This forum is currently moderated by someone that does not speak Chinese and is not a communist, but an anti-imperialist, multi-polarist EU federalist that can’t seem to find a foothold anywhere, as all political parties in his country are pro-US vassal state, so resides here for the time being.
