Make the Chinese pay for what they have done

The news is the same as it has been ever since the Chinese Virus started. The virus originated in China. The Chinese knew that it could be transmitted person to person. The leadership of China did little, if anything, to contain the virus. More to the point, they actually encouraged Chinese citizens to travel during the Lunar New Year, thereby effectively guaranteeing the spread of this virus. What was once a virus affecting a relatively small population in Wuhan, China has now become a pandemic the likes of which many of us have never seen. And for that, many of us of angry. No, angry is the wrong word. Infuriated, apoplectic, pissed off, out for blood. Pick whatever adjective of metaphor want. The bottom line is that these sons of bitches created this monster and did absolutely nothing to stop it. And even now, they are lying through their teeth as to the number of new cases and deaths that are occurring in their country. And still, they have the gall to act like they are not to blame. In fact, they want to help with the problem so much that they are sending defective test kits to Europe. Thankfully, the Europeans have declined the usage of these kits. I guess it's their way of saying " China. 're not getting off that easy".

So, how does or should the world react to these bad actors in China? Nuke them? Not smart. That cure is worst than the disease. Stop buying Chinese products? That's a start, but let's face it. We are all creatures of habit and if we can save a buck, that tends to guide our thinking. Ban all travel into and out of China bound for the US and every other airport in the world? Now that would hurt, but it would take a collective group effort to make it happen and make it stick. One thought is to hit the Chinese where it hurts: their wallet. As Billy Ray Valentine said, "The way get even with rich people is to make them poor." And that is exactly what the world should do.

In total, the Chinese state and its subsidiaries have lent about $1.5 trillion in direct loans and trade credits to more than 150 countries around the globe. This has turned China into the world’s largest official creditor — surpassing traditional, official lenders such as the World Bank, the IMF, or all OECD creditor governments combined. However, when adding portfolio debts (including the $1 trillion of U.S. Treasury debt purchased by China's central bank) and trade credits (to buy goods and services), the Chinese government's aggregate claims to the rest of the world exceed $5 trillion in total as of Feb 26, 2020.

Apart from the tragic human consequences of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, the economic uncertainty it has sparked will likely cost the global economy $1 trillion in 2020, the UN’s trade and development agency, UNCTAD, said on Monday. Another estimate shows the financial carnage to the world being upwards of $5 trillion. So, what I, just one American, propose is this: We, along with the rest of the world, tell the Chinese to go themselves and that we are not going to repay ANY of our loans to them. If the US does that, I am pretty sure other countries would follow suit. What are the Chinese going to do? Attack us? Hardly. Stop sending us their goods? Who the hell cares. I don't plan to buy anymore of their crap anyway. Not lend to the US anymore? That's a definitely possibility, but it also opens up other opportunities for countries who know how to behave to become financing partners amongst themselves rather than asking the Chinese for money.

The bottom line is that China must pay for the damage they created. And if they are not prepared to do that, then they have assured themselves a priority position on the short list of countries that other countries plan to get even with anyway they can. Working together this planet can send a strong message to the Chinese. fucked with us. Now we are going to fuck with , big time.
