@ Hohhot # 8:
I attended a lecture from Alibek in 2003. The Soviets were really not that good in the waning days of their empire. At least that was the conclusion of most of our audience.
What was interesting though that he mentioned cytokines as a field of his research. That made a lot more sense than his stories about ebola-HIV-smallpox chimera’s (the Soviets had no DNA amplification techniques worth mentioning).
The article might not have been from the highest quality source (after all, DLPR are contested independent republics, constantly under artillery attack from Azov neo-nazi batallions– that ought to create some bias!). So no more information as yet.
However, imagining the effects of a rushed vaccin, hastily created from an escaped GOF messed up virus with a heavy key chain , full of perfect fits into human receptors, it is not that hard to imagine a wide variety of scenarios.
I want some! (I would definitely want to know what kind of plant comes out).
I love to collect seeds from interesting plants. According to some rumors, some Helychrysum species might contain antiviral essential oils. Would this be confirmed, then I have already collected seeds of 3 species. I have now already 4 artemisia species!
This year the purpose is only propagation and brewing an experimental ‘honey badger-organics’ bitter from these herbs in a syrup from elder, grape with ca. 25 % alcohol and some honey.
It is becoming almost impossible to form a realistic opinion, or staying informed about China nowadays. I still think China is still a somewhat positive force in current geopolitical dynamics.
I am glad I live in Europe, and not in China or the US. The proper balance between draconian state control and a rapidly failing state.
It is very hard to not become overly sympathetic to our Chinese friends, considering the continuous hate vomited from sky news and other Murdoch media, the Bannon and Trump following media.
Not everyone likes this level of hate! It creates blowback!
I have to positively correct myself to not become a Xi supporter! If I would swallow all this propaganda (I won’t, because I am not a herd animal, and feel no urge to defend a Chinese president), given my character, I would sign up as such!
Ik volg Chris sinds het begin van de epidemie (eind januari), toevallig de dag dat ik in de AOW ging. Naast PP volg ik met name drBeen, Medcram.
Ik heb al 15 jaar een volkstuin, dus dat veranderde weinig, ik eet er het hele jaar van. (hoef dus slechts vlees en bier te kopen). Wel kweek ik dit jaar wat Artemisia soorten, om samen met vlierbessen een ‘corona -organics’ te koken, zoiets als men in Madagascar maakt met blijkbaar groot succes.
Afgezien van de gebruikelijke supplementen doe ik nu een jaarlijkse ivermectine profylaxe (voor vogels zegt het pipetflesje). 1 vol flesje van 10 ml per jaar.
What would be beneficial to China by invading the US??
I can not see any considering the costs. It seems actually very silly.
I don’t have to. Most of their products work just fine and are affordable, or are simply nowhere else available, like action cams and their optics.
For the rest: It is not my country, so it is not my bussiness! If a majority the Chinese, the Venezolans , the Cubans, the Iranians or the Russians want to change their system, good for them. But they definitely are not helped by my interference! To me all this top-down fake indigination about countries and their governments seems just a prelude to sanctions, hostilities or even military agression.
In the US it seems like a signature opinion for the dems to hate Russia and the reps to hate Russia.. All that seems very silly and immature from my side of the pond (Netherlands).
It could be true (on what scale?), but be aware that there is lots of fake news and propaganda circulating about China: Pompeo and the republicans, the heirs of Tjang kai tjek from Taiwan, the falun gong, the western sponsored rioters in Hongkong, the Uygur propaganda (part of it affiliated with al Qaida), Sky news, Cisko, etc. etc.
I would not want to live in China, but then, I’m not Chinese! I think they are doing a great job containing COVID, and I am mostly very happy with the stuff I order from China, most of it not obtainable or affordable elsewhere. I am just as opposed against the Russophobe bias voiced by the democrats.
In Europe, where I live, fortunately these opinions are a bit more moderate. The general rule here is: the less people are informed, the most biased they are (except political operators).
Neither Russia, China or Iran has any benefit in destabilizing the US. The destabilization is making ‘great progress’ all by itself anyway. (Sun Tzu: ‘if your opponent is destroying itself: Do nothing’, –The Art of War)
A rapidly destabilizing US is only dangerous for them, as the failing superpower tends to look for military adventures to distract and unify the people against a common enemy. Even if they would not lose the war, the costs in blood and treasure are huge, only willingly to be taken up by completely desperate (rapidly destabilizing) states (which they seem to be not).
I happened to have looked at the case fatality rates from worldometers this week as well (had to copy it into a spreadsheet). These data can reveal many hidden truths.
Chris looked at wearing masks; I marked the countries where I assume CHQ and other promising off-patent drugs are available in green and sorted them from high to low. 2 very distinct categories! The green sinks to the bottom!
Of course it is an estimate, as we need confirmation how available these treatments really are, and in which stage of the epidemic they became available. Exceptions to the trend are in conflict zones and semi-failed states, with Yemen on top.
