"There are only two ways it was released: by accident due to
incompetence at Wuhan Lab or the CCP had the virus weaponized and
released on purpose. Of course this would be construed as an act of war,
an act of economic warfare. Either way the CCP is responsible for the
release of COVID-19 virus and damages incurred.
When I make a mistake and my mistake causes damages to another party, I
have a responsibility to pay for those damages. Why then is no one
asking for damages from the CCP?"

Question that formed in my mind is that if only 5,000 people have died
in China from the virus and over 100 times that many in the US then
maybe the Chinese were trying to design a virus that does not kill
Chinese people.

I think someone in China quipped that if they had designed it, it would
have been far more deadly. Maybe they were working on that before it
escaped the Wuhan labs.

My comments may sound nutty but we seem to be living in a nutty world today.

Your comments do seem nutty, because there isn't enough genetic
variation between Asians and Caucasians to target a virus.

There doesn't need to be. The Chinese knew it was coming and acted in
advance so not many of them were killed.

They did take it more seriously and that saved lives (though they also used
some questionable methods). And, of course, their numbers are not reliable.

In any case, how would we hold China responsible? Stop buying chips
from them?

Refuse to pay debts. Start a war. Stop buying their stuff on Ebay. There
are many ways.

Personal attacks from those who troll show their own insecurity. They cannot
use reason to show the message to be wrong so they try to feel somehow
superior by attacking the messenger.

They cling to their attacks and ignore the message time and time again.
