...And drinking? AFAIK, drinking doesn't clog up your lungs.
But excessive alcohol can weaken the immune system.

Indeed, you are correct, but even moderate smoking will put you at risk.

Anyway..... sigh..... my point is, that, even though these facts are well known, there seems to be a dearth of warning about them.

If there was ever any doubt that the WHO was taking orders from China since day one (not that there was). This guy is the senior adviser to the head of the WHO.

disgustingly corrupt organization, US needs to stop all funding to the UN (which the WHO is from) and kick them the fuck out as they are a corrupt and useless organization.

Think about this. Most countries are hideously corrupt.

The UN is populated and staffed by those who have climbed the ladder in their respective countries bureaucracy to get that position. They are the most successful of the bureaucrats in their probably corrupt country. This is how we end up with The Sudan, Saudi Arabia, China, and Venezuela on the UN Commission for human rights.

I defy anyone to tell me that an organization that allows this type of malfeasance isn't fundamentally corrupt and nearly every product emanating from them is also corrupt.

The WHO helped China cover up their BS to "Save Face" and were awarded a 200 million dollar payment. That is how this BS works. They are toxic and poison. They cannot be trusted.

An couple of excerpts from the report in which they call out Xi Jinping as PERSONALLY DIRECTING THE RESPONSE. This allows him to save face as a leader. And in the second, it allows the country to save face. The UN and the WHO are a problem. In theory, great organizations. In reality, as corrupt as a 4th world African nation.

By extension, the EU, US, and all other Western countries do the same and are the same. I hear everyone blaming China, but in truth, all that is saying is the pot calling the kettle black.

You can't be serious. If you think our country is run the same way as Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, et. al., you need to go back to school and learn basic governance.

Edit: And you have a Bimmer of a day, as well.

I saw that two Democrats, one male and one female, have started a drive to hold the WHO accountable for their early on praise of China and have asked for an immediate public retraction and correction of said comments.
















J/k. They're Republicans.
