    Damned how anyone could see it coming?

    Those that did were attacked for causing panic.

    Sadly many gone by Easter. 8400 plus dead as of yesterday, how many in the next months.

    Red tape is not the problem. When this administration is at odds with it's own intelligence agency and doesn't listen well you get what we have now. Not to mention how utterly stupid, arrogant, and incompetent our CIC is..
    The people who hid Anne Frank were breaking the law. The people who killed her were following it.

    I'll agree it is at odds with what the lying media tells us transpired.

    Facts are very difficult to come by at those levels, and only a fool would think the media doesn't constantly lie about this administration.

    The WHO was in league with China providing false information. They were denying that there was human to human transmission at this time

    8400 is not many. That’s close to total deaths every single day.

    If I recall correctly, the WHO was downplaying the effects of the virus based on reports from China in January.

    In fact, on 01/14/20 they said there was no evidence of human to human transmission. WHO says no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of novel coronavirus

    That is a very important distinction. Denying the primary vector even exists put the level of risk at a point where even Democrats were dismissing the danger.

    Or did you not notice Pelosi and De Blasio encouraging people to gather in Chinatowns in both San Francisco and NYC because there was no danger?

    People need to stop all the 20/20 Hindsight arguments of "woulda, coulda, shoulda" based on information coming months after the actions were being contemplated.

    We keep getting snippits of this and that, but none of us was there at the time decisions were being made. So we don't know how things were presented, exactly when, and to whom. Nor were we privy to all the ins and outs of the issues as they were being discussed.

    All of that is water under the bridge. This is NOW.

    Blame gaming can be done AFTER the crisis is resolved...it does no good now.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    So, WTF? How is it that the Army realized that COVID-19 was much more serious, while the WH and CDC were totally unaware?

    This is what I don't get. We know China's numbers have been bull**** for awhile. There's no way they didn't have hundreds of thousands of deaths around the country. How were they seriously able to cover that scale of death up and our government be totally unaware?

    Our intelligence community grossly dropped the ball here, and there should be answers after the crisis.
    Perhaps.

    "While the Army briefing document was reportedly seen by the heads of US Northern Command and US Army North and sent to senior Army leadership, it is unclear if the document was passed further up the chain, the Daily Beast reported."

    WHO officials are clearly compromised by China. We fund the WHO, through the United Nations. Every warning about China was laughed at by Democrats, who cowardly attacked Russia instead, knowing that Russia doesn't have the financial capabilities and military resources to compete with us. They're bullies, and now they have 8200 American deaths on their hands.
