It is not WHO’s role to criticize anyone or anything, but to provide information and to make reliable predictions and risk assessment. And if China is not trustworthy and known for its coverups in the past, it should be a factor in the analysis.

The WHO did and does have the power to speak out publicly to the world and the world listens.
Exactly! And WHO failed badly in that and continue to fail, and nobody resigned or took responsibility. This behavior strongly indicates corruption. WHO should be heavily reorganized.

It’s a good thing. There is nothing wrong with reading Marx, Hitler or the Bible. Wrong is to follow something blindly without knowing the alternatives and consequences.

I don’t think any strong sanctions against Russia will be ever imposed. Russia is extremely weak with Putin: corrupted, inefficient. And while Russian top hierarchy hold most of their assets in the West, there can’t be any serious threat from Russia. Moreover, the situation is extremely profitable for Western countries: they buy Russian resources and most of the money are coming back (together with families of Putin’s friends).

Rights groups have met with the IOC and have been told the Olympic body must stay politically “neutral.”
Didn’t know that genocide is just a political issue. Let’s have fun in Beijing and have a good laugh about all these “minor” political differences. They could also provide excursions to their concentration camps during Olympics, so that participants can learn more about Chinese culture.
They have been told by the IOC that China has given “assurances” about human rights conditions.
I guess the assurances were given in cash and other benefits.

It pointed to the fact that there was no record of any virus resembling SARS-CoV-2 in any laboratory before December 2019, and stressed high safety levels at the labs in Wuhan.
Ha-ha, there is no record. Is it possible for such record to survive and get on WHO table? The WHO is receiving a filtered input and making conclusions from that. It is hardly an investigation.

In oct. 2017 US halted funding for new risky virus studies, and called for voluntary moratorium to minimize the risks of dangerous virus leaks from labs (these included studies of MERS and SARS viruses). Now WHO telling us that such research is basically safe and China can continue to do so.

I am completely serious when I say I'd rather catch corona than wear a mask for the next decade.
BTW, a mask is not protecting you as much as you think. It’s rather protects others from you. That’s why in countries full of selfish bastards the virus is spreading like crazy.

To compensate all the suffering caused by this price trick they had for years, the new law should force sellers to display their prices 10% higher than they actually going to charge.

What is important is to raise awareness to Uyghur genocide. But this is probably will cost her some money, so probably she will keep silent.

Tritium has been suggested as as a safer nuclear fuel than uranium from the contamination point of view, so why not continue to store it and look for ways of getting it in pure form? If it cannot be extracted from the water, what about extracting the water from it (e.g. by evaporation)?
Tritium (which is hydrogen) is part of the water molecules itself. So I guess evaporation will not help. Also, to evaporate so much water they probably need to build another nuclear plant.

What surprises me is that progressive people want to get married in the first place. How many of us will be rather happy to hear from the judge the following statement: marriage between any two or more individuals is forbidden since it is unconstitutional and violates basic human freedom rights.

China is also responsible for a more than a month delay before they shared the details about the virus, which delayed the vaccines, which caused more deaths around the world.

What investigation? Wuhan, China is the origin of the pandemic. China and WHO are both responsible for its rapid spread all around the world. Every country which didn’t trust to China and didn’t listen to WHO’s ‘relax and wash your hands’, but sealed their borders very early, didn’t suffer that much.

By March 2020, cultivation had resumed at only 32.2 percent of the abandoned farmland
Whaaat? How contaminated land became clean just in 10 years if for Cs-137 (with half life 30 years) only 20% of it decayed. I would rather expect expansion of the contaminated area due to the natural mixing factors.
