Hybrid War Hypothesis

Directly Threatened,

It seems like a core of links about coronavirus pandemic being military, probably US military, comes through Global Research website, which is Russia-friendly. That seems bold on the part of this Canadian website, and also bold of the authors, like Whitney Webb and Pepe Escobar. My last broad overview included a summary to that date by Professor Anthony Hall, and information indicating that L-strain and S-strain coronaviruses were quite different in some parts of their genome, so one could not be a "parent" of the other. It appears that there are more strains than that. Iran and Italy have sequenced viral strains that are hitting them hard.
Look back at the excellent summary article from early this month, by Professor Anthony Hall, and related links here:

China Locked In Hybrid War With US (but who in China and who in the US?) Pepe Escobar
​ ​Beijing is carefully, incrementally shaping the narrative that, from the beginning of the coronovirus attack, the leadership knew it was under a hybrid war attack. Xi’s terminology is a major clue. He said, on the record, that this was war. And, as a counter-attack, a “people’s war” had to be launched.
​ ​Moreover, he described the virus as a demon or devil. Xi is a Confucianist. Unlike some other ancient Chinese thinkers, Confucius was loath to discuss supernatural forces and judgment in the afterlife. However, in a Chinese cultural context, devil means “white devils” or “foreign devils”: guailo in Mandarin, gweilo in Cantonese. This was Xi delivering a powerful statement in code.
​ ​When Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, voiced in an incandescent tweet the possibility that “it might be US Army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan” – the first blast to this effect to come from a top official – Beijing was sending up a trial balloon signaliing that the gloves were finally off. Zhao Lijian made a direct connection with the Military Games in Wuhan in October 2019, which included a delegation of 300 US military.
​ ​He directly quoted US CDC director Robert Redfield who, when asked last week whether some deaths by coronavirus had been discovered posthumously in the US, replied that  “some cases have actually been diagnosed this way in the US today.”
​ ​Zhao’s explosive conclusion is that Covid-19 was already in effect in the US before being identified in Wuhan – due to the by now fully documented inability of US to test and verify differences compared with the flu.
​ ​Adding all that to the fact that coronavirus genome variations in Iran and Italy were sequenced and it was revealed they do not belong to the variety that infected Wuhan.


​Larry Romanoff presents the case that coronavirus was killing in America before it popped up in Wuhan, and that it may have gotten out of the oldest US bioweapons facility, Ft Detrick, Maryland, about the time that facility was shut down last year. Chinese, Japanese and Tiawanese researchers have been joined by Iranian virologists in this conclusion.
(I will add that a patient of mine was admitted to the hospital last November in cardiopulmonary distress, needed mechanical ventilation, survived, and was found to have had "coronavirus" as the cause, back before that was scary.)
Taiwan ran a TV news program on February,27,(click here to access video (Chinese), that presented diagrams and flow charts suggesting the coronavirus originated in the US.

US Intel Agencies Played Unsettling Role in Classified Coronavirus Response Plan, Whitney Webb
​ ​As the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis comes to dominate headlines, little media attention has been given to the federal government’s decision to classify top-level meetings on domestic coronavirus response and lean heavily “behind the scenes” on U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon in planning for an allegedly imminent explosion of cases... 
...the decision to classify was “an unusual step that has restricted information and hampered the U.S. government’s response to the contagion.” Reuters further noted that the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Alex Azar, and his chief of staff had “resisted” the classification order, which was made in mid-January by the National Security Council (NSC), led by Robert O’Brien — a longtime friend and colleague of his predecessor John Bolton.
​ ​Following this order, HHS officials with the appropriate security clearances held meetings on coronavirus response at the department’s Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF), which are facilities “usually reserved for intelligence and military operations” and — in HHS’ case — for responses to “biowarfare or chemical attacks.” Several officials who spoke to Reuters noted that the classification decision prevented key experts from participating in meetings and slowed down the ability of HHS and the agencies it oversees, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to respond to the crisis by limiting participation and information sharing.


​China is winning the char-offensive of this global hybrid war, and I appreciate it. I need masks, testing kits and medicines in Austin.
​ Over the past few days, China has sent planeloads of masks, teams of doctors and even ventilators around the world to help battle the crisis. Chinese billionaire Jack Ma donated one million masks and hundreds of thousands of testing kits to the U.S., with the first load arriving in Seattle on Monday.
 "We are doing instead of talking. We are the friends not enemy. Could the American do the same to Chinese?" China's ambassador to South Africa, Lin Songtian, tweeted on Monday.
 A shipment of 300,000 masks, sent by Chinese charities founded by Ma and his Alibaba empire, arrived in Belgium this week. Chinese state news agency Xinhua published a photograph of one of the containers draped with the slogan “Unity makes strength” in French, Flemish and Chinese.

 War stories from Italy include no coffins for speedy burials without viewing, and the case of  a town where they tested everybody and eradicated the virus. Asymptomatic cases were very common.

Favipiravir is an influenza drug from Japan that works very well in early cases, but not much after disease is severe. Great if started when symptoms are mild. Shortens course from 11 days to 4 days from diagnosis to resolution.

Here is a listing of types of drug treatment for SARS-CoV-2, ongoing trials, classifications and mechanisms:  

Our lords and masters are gritting their teeth to send $1000 to each American adult each month, or some variant of that. They hate this, but they face losing the entire economic life support system when a quadrillion dollars of credit default swaps go bad. (I can't understand a billion or a trillion, let alone a quadrillion. Can you?)

Eleni sent this excellent article explaining the impasse in Israeli electoral politics. This is the clearest explanation I have yet seen, by Daniel Lazare
​ ​Some forty percent of Lieberman’s followers do not meet the rabbinic standard, which means that they are effectively reduced to second-class citizenship in terms of marriage, employment, and a host of other issues as well. But makes the issue especially explosive is the military draft, which affects ex-Soviets but not orthodox males who devote themselves full-time to religious studies. David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, struck the deal back in 1948 when just a few hundred yeshiva students in Jerusalem were affected. Since then, however, the orthodox sector has expanded to twelve percent of the population, more than a million people in all. Soviet immigrants and their children must their lives at risk to protect orthodox Israelis who don’t even regard them as Jewish.
​ ​Lieberman has made it clear that he will not enter any government that allows such exemptions to continue. But it’s a demand that Netanyahu cannot possibly accommodate since he is dependent on the support of the religious parties for support.
