A whole lot of good it has done for them since none of the spying they did has helped them in regards to designing a vaccine. Hence why Trump wanted to buy any countries vaccine so badlyThis is part of the "Hack Back" doctrine the US erected a while back.... basically gives them the greenlight to spy on others under the pretext and pretense of preemptive "defending" themselves from being spied upon. Its plausible deniability, aggressor cloaked with the victim status, the whole nine yards
LOL, someone better revoke her degrees.“The genome sequence is like a human finger print,” she told the talk show. “So based on this you can identify these things. I use the evidence … to tell people why this has come from the lab in China, why they are the only ones who made it.”
“Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, you can read it, and you can check and identify and verify by yourself.”
It's almost like virus doesn't give two shits about fake news...
Remember the good ole days where they said China lies and can never be trusted...? I'll tell you that the media is embarrassed because they drank the Kool-Aid in the beginning bragging and reporting that the US was number one in handlings outbreaks. Everything has been completely the opposite of what they thought. They contributed to the chaos and they still don't want to call a spade a spade.
What was sold in Hong Kong is a residence which is not part of diplomatic property. A diplomatic property is the property of foreign country which the hosting country can not sell without the guest countries consent. Diplomatic property only includes embassy and and the official residence of the ambassador. Anything else including the consulate office and residential accommodations of any diplomats outside of the embassy compound are based on commercial principle, rent or purchase.
I read that the US government sold the Houston consulate for over $300 million. How does the US own property in Hong Kong when apparently China didn't own the Houston consulate? Maybe those apartments aren't the same as consulates. Notice they stopped at closing the Houston consulate. I was expecting more but then US consulates in China are far more valuable to the US than Chinese consulates in the US to China hence why they didn't go further.
