Hopefully Biden will reverse the decision, and as soon as possible. T$$$$ has shown himself to be a clear and present danger both to the USA and the rest of the world. I know Biden has no intention of going after him for all his crimes, and I actually understand why (imagine if doing that was a common occurrence - something which could happen if it happens just the once - any former president, no matter how good they'd been, could find themselves targeted by the next administration for spite. The government in power is in an excellent position to plant fake "evidence" of "crimes" Just picture what T$$$$ could have done to Obama had precedent been set!). But there's nothing stopping any state doing the job where necessary. Good luck New York!

The US can't afford to not crack down on people like Trump, because next time it won't be a manchild trying to turn the USA into a fascist state.

edgar2prado Pred 7 dnevi
13:20 Please clarify. How can there be "indoor airborne transmission" if this IS NOT an airborne virus? (Airborne = droplets 0.5 microns and below carry an infectious viral load. The stuff disaster movies are made of.) The only way that could happen is if you are indoors, one or more persons are not wearing a mask, wearing it improperly (e.g. - nose out), or wearing a mask with a valve. And that certain someone sneezes. Or maybe something even rarer. Like pulling out a pressurized breathing tube. (Obviously a big no-no.) Proper wearing of the right types of masks (a surgical one will do) is protecting us. Social distancing is EVIL SOCIAL ENGINEERING. Before you jump on my figurative throat try to find out what was the original, the very first, rationale for those six feet was. It had to do with coughing (very thick droplets) WITHOUT A MASK. But perhaps by now the it is possible that the CDC, and/or other health authorities may be saying something else to keep up the charade.
seigeengine Pred 2 dnevi
Or you're an idiot and we know now the virus spreads both via larger droplets and smaller aerosols, and while masks block droplet spread and cut down on aerosol and aerosol transmission, so does physical distance between person. In any case, viral load will build up in indoor spaces, especially ones with inadequate ventilation.

In reality it's a WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, and it appeases China because of China's zero tolerance policy with recognizing Taiwan, and China's 1.4B people are too important to have info on and access to to do their jobs, in contrast with Taiwan's 0.024B. On top of that, Taiwan is far more open than China anyway, meaning not recognizing them is less costly even if they had similar populations.

so there is seriously no worry to anyone that the WHO is heavily influenced by a country which obviously lies about COVID cases. im left AF and hate trump but the WHO dosent worry anyone?
seigeengine Pred 2 dnevi
No, because that's bullshit. The WHO only panders to China because it needs to to secure access to Chinese information, and to have people in China. I realize dumb dumbs don't like to think think, but China has 1.4B people. It's vitally important to have info on what's going on in China to secure global health.
Baron von Limbourgh
Baron von Limbourgh Pred 7 dnevi
They do pay the most and can decide where and on what that money is spent on, so with that comes a lot of influence. And the usa is probably not the only one fiddling their covid numbers. Honestly it is just the way things have always been and it never was an issue before.

Mind you, the WHO has been extorted by the nuclear power industry and are forbidden to alert the world about nuclear effects on health in the world, including the effects of The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, and many more that are also not reported in detail and are covered up.

At least this won't go through. I suspect one of the first things Biden will do is cancel the withdrawal of the US from the WHO. Actually, being from the UK, the phrase ' does have problems, but the solution clearly isn't to walk away, it's to try and fix them, and the only way for to have a say in how that happens is to have a seat at the table and we're about to give that up' is oddly familiar.....

Don't really like the linguistic prescriptivism on the jokes about the word "literally" but otherwise an incredibly important message here
Sasha Willow Smith
Sasha Willow Smith Pred 2 dnevi
@seigeengine Language shifts and has always done so, with "literally" its generally pretty easy to tell from context weither its being used traditionally or for exaggeration. I've never encountered a time where that ambiguity has been an issue; and english is no stranger to ambiguity. Plus, though not in this context really, prescriptivism is frequently used to justify bigotry against people who use non-traditional definitions to describe aspects of their identity that don't fit neatly into the standard boxes.
seigeengine Pred 2 dnevi
While I'm generally fine with descriptivism, there's the issue that language use can literally ;) erode the ability to communicate effectively. Nothing has emerged to clarify when one literally means something to supplant the usage shift to literally meaning non-literal situations, and that's a problem.

Folks in the west are so naive... got drunk on all the cool-aid propaganda from the CCP and don't even know it. Keep on projecting their own privileges of having free press and free speech and forgetting communist china is an authoritarian regime without free flow of information.

Kudos to acknowledging the past successes of the WHO, but their past performance can't possibly forgive their mishandling of the biggest challenge they have likely faced. Their trustworthiness is critical to being able to diplomatically manage global health issues, but I think you overlooked the fact that diplomacy doesn't work with the CCP and XI made a fool out of Tedros. Saying it's OK that the WHO misread the Coronavirus because Trump did too is setting a pretty low bar for them don't you think? Trump's stupidity has cost hundreds of thousands of American lives, The WHO' naïveté dealing with China on this has cost millions of lives globally, not to mention the global financial massacre. I absolutely hate Trump, but if threatening the WHO is what it takes to get them to stop listening to the CCP propaganda it might actually be a good thing.
AmurruMan Pred 23 urami
seigeengine uh.... did you miss all of Tedros early announcements about it being nothing to worry about and recommending against travel restrictions? Or maybe you haven't realized that we are in the middle of a global pandemic? How else could you suggest that the WHO didn't misread the situation? Brain dead maybe?

@JohnOliver.. First of all.. US should NOT quit the WHO... and Trump is a stupid, egotistical moron.. but your show has started ignoring facts just to criticise Trump.. a few facts which I think were relevant.. 1) Current head of WHO was elected with support of China over US 2) In January-20 despite growing worldwide alarm WHO simply parroted China's assurance that Covid is not airborne and a worldwide problem.. despite Wuhan already being under lockdown.. it did not fact check anything.. nor did it press China to allow an independent team to investigate.. not did ito advise a travel ban to/from China.. If we're anyways just going to take the word of dictatorships like China.. then WHO is not fulfilling its role.. This is in contrast with handling of earlier SARS/MERS (1 of them) outbreak a few years back.. under a different head.. who ADVISED TRAVEL BANS AGAINST CHINA and helped stop the their spread.. which the current head should have done or at least not given a carte blanche just on China's say so..

No the WHO did NOT say that. On 14 Jan the WHO (in just a single tweet) passed on what they had been misleadingly told by the Chinese authorities who, at the time, were aggressively suppressing accurate reporting of the situation in Wuhan. "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China" A WHO team arrived in Wuhan on 20 Jan and within 48 hours promulgated that human transmission WAS happening AND convened their Emergency Committee.

Very poor argument regarding the difference in funding between the US and China. The us doesn’t pay too much, but China clearly pays too little

The alternative to joepardy, would be leopardy I'm guessing and would involve humans running away from hungry and pissed off leopards. But yeah... stick to the WHO but don't fund it more than other countries do. Figure out a good compromise, make sure the money is used well enough and for things most if not all countries would like it to be used, and don't let yourself be the doormat, but also don't be a Trump. Easier said than done, sure, but it's worth trying...

Germany and France are going to pay more to the WHO, Germany will then pay 500 Million Euro. So about as much as the US does. With this we will also pay for protection gear for other countries. Because if you have a world-wide problem everyone has a problem and the more countries cannot face this properly are also endangering us. No time for political tactics. Reforms can be made later.

Maybe if America backs out of something Majorly Humanitarian like leaving WHO, maybe it can F off entirely and be blocked from doing any trade with any country again until it decides to align itself with Humanitarian ideals again, you know, be human and care about people? Just F off then.
