China’s Communist Party lied about COVID-19 death tolls and how easily it was transmitted from human to human. With the Asian power’s economy on life support due to the very plague it inflicted on the U.S., the time is now to snuff out its “Belt and Road” aspirations of global supremacy. China must pay the boatman for thousands dead, millions infected, billions in salaries lost, healthcare costs, intellectual property theft, and lust for power.
“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence recently said. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”
Had China not concealed the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. and other nations would have implemented travel bans and taken proactive measures much sooner. However, the communists put profits over human lives. Many speculate that the regime recognized its economy would suffer mightily, and made a calculated decision to send the U.S. and EU into a tailspin with it.
“Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime,” Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said.
After decades of U.S. presidents standing on the sidelines, China’s manufacturing base has grown into the world’s largest. Nearly one-third of all products now bear the mark “Made in China.” As the pandemic spread, the communists have reportedly withheld medical supplies and critical personal protective equipment such as ventilators. President Donald Trump was forced to leverage wartime powers under the Defense Production Act to compel private businesses to make ventilators and save American lives.
It’s abundantly clear the communists handed the Americans a death sentence and have every intention of withholding the very means of survival. With the world’s eyes wide open for the first time in decades, the communist stranglehold on manufactured goods and medicine must end.
The regime has flexed its economic muscle for years engaging in a mafia-style takeover of African and South American ports. Under the so-called “Belt and Road” strategy to dominate all international trade, China issued massive loans to Third World countries and seized critical infrastructure and ports when payment came due. The U.S. is now deftly positioned to turn back Belt and Road by demanding financial compensation for trillions in losses.
Some suggest that it would be fair and equitable to begin seizing Chinese assets in the U.S. and aboard. The communists have also reportedly refused to release countries in Africa and Latin America from debt, despite the tremendous losses of life and resources the China Virus caused. There’s a growing movement to legally expropriate assets and negate loans in the U.S. and other countries based on the COVID-19 harms.
Simply put, the U.S. could serve China with a global civil lawsuit, secure its assets, force them into international court and expose their culpability. President Trump has already proven China can be beaten in a trade war. It’s time to put an end to the communists’ long-term goal of global economic supremacy.
