“COVID-19: Neither China Nor the WHO Are to Blame for Trump’s Failures

“The U.S. president, in seeking to weaponize the virus to salvage his own reputation, has set his face against humanity.”

Response to a comment saying, “And inconvenient facts are still facts! Journalists should respect not distort them!”

That is so in science and in theory about other matters.

But it is plainly not the case for the United States in its international affairs.

For seventy-five years of American imperial wars and coups and intrusions, there has been no truth told about any of them.

Many countries overturned and some destroyed plus something on the order of eight to twenty million people killed.

You would not find an ordinary American citizen who could even sketch out the basic facts of any of that colossal toll.

And that very much goes for associated huge events such as 9/11 and the assassination of President Kennedy.

Truth in these matters is like the old “sound of one hand clapping.” You can’t hear it, and it may just as well not exist.
