With all the discussions COVID is producing...........such as do masks work (current day Europe would indicate they do not)......who came up with 6' as the correct spacing for social distancing.......so 5'11" is unsafe....but 6' is fine??? Have you seen those ridiculous face shields they're selling that are open on all sides??? If you smoke....inhale and put your mask on in front of a mirror. Then exhale. If you see any smoke you just proved wearing a mask is pointless. But that's just one discussion. There's lots of others......who did what and when.....was it enough....could they have done more.....who's fault is this or that.......bla, bla, bla,..........entertaining for sure, but everyone is missing the BIG picture. And the BIG picture is what our enemies are paying attention to and learning from COVID. They're watching us bicker, panic, hoard things, resist lockdowns, fight amongst ourselves........not educating our young......losing our livelihoods and businesses (that many have invested everything in).......and they're learning. They're learning they don't need to get nukes to pulverize the United States/Canada/Great Britian or the EU. They don't need to train troops, buy weapons, learn how to fly a jet into a building or even lift a finger. All they need to do is buy a virus. And on the black market such things are cheap.......at least cheap compared to a nuclear warhead......and so much easier to conceal and release. There are more than a couple of countries developing biological weapons that will now increase development in that arena exponentially. And our enemies now know wars are pointless when there's such a simple, much more effective means to dominate.......and it comes in a test tube. Ask yourself this.........what good is a naval nuclear aircraft carrier task force.....that carries enough munitions to destroy the world seven times over........if its sailors, Marines and airmen are all sick or dead from a virus? The term "firepower" has now been rendered obsolete, and the term "antidote" or "cure" has taken it's place. What exactly would a large country do if it's population was afflicted by a deadly, quick acting virus and only their enemy (who unleased it) had the cure? Right now, this very second, the only reason our enemies won't release something worse is because they have no cure and would kill themselves as well. But if they find a cure to a disease they've bought or cultivated......we're in very DEEP SHIT. So the race is on.
The world as we know it is about to become a very dark, dangerous place.......and no one on our side seems to be paying much attention. COVID is a "drop in the bucket" compared to what a purpose built virus can accomplish. These were the things only some know about but never discussed before COVID. Well.....lots of us better start talking about it now, and rather loudly. As Lily said........hindsight IS 20/20.......but hindsight won't help with something the likes of which have never been seen before. The next virus unleased will make you wish it was ONLY as bad as COVID....but that's only if you survive, which the odds are strongly against. I only bring this up to start a dialogue. From here on out sticking your head in the sand will only get your ass blown off. It's time to start paying attention to the "what if's" and the "how bad could it be's" and make sure our leaders have our backs (when they're not stuffing their pockets), and get out ahead of this nightmare. COVID was a warning shot across the bow of humanity to see if anyone was paying attention. I think few were. The next round will be on target. And it's gonna hurt. So let's get talking..........
