    You can read all kinds of ideas today, have you read the one about the virus is a way to keep the world locked up so we dont panic over the meteor that's about to hit the earth? I got a chuckle out of that one.

    It's even scarier to me that IF it is true the Chinese are craftier than I've ever given them credit for. Communists don't really run on brains though...so I have grave doubts about the theory.

    We helped make the China monster. Sooner or later we will have to deal with it. Looks like sooner.

    Time to remove the bolts from Frankenchinas neck. Lets start by insisting that our 1.7 Trillion dollar debt to them be wiped out.

    I have done business with the Chinese for about 20years you should rethink that they are not very crafty. They do not look at business ethics like we do. They are a 5000 year old society. They have many years of thinking about business. You should not underestimate the Chinese. They have their culture with our schooling to match us now. Their kids have been taught through our schools for many years

    Could be or could be someone else's conspiracy theory.

    All this is beyond our pay grades so to speak and the intelligence community of the Gov't probably knows the real answer but us common folk don't need to know at this time!
    Only thing for certain is in time the details will emerge.

    Me too. I do not think any intelligent person can look at the present situation and not think the Chinese are looking this whole thing over and that they do not see what they have done, either on purpose or by "accident" to the rest of the world.
    I mean, they would have to be pretty stupid not to see what damage they did. The Trojan Horse of all Trojan Horses. Talk about cyber war, this makes it pale by comparison. The people of a country are decimated, and their infrastructure remains intact. There is no other weapon capable of doing this.
    If anyone disagrees just come out and say, the Chinese do not see this clearly.
    Wouldn't be surprised to see this thread in an early grave.

    The latter.

    China is a real issue in a lot of ways, they don't play by the same rules, their communication companies and high tech are a huge issue, but..... This f'n virus is not their plot to take over the world.

    Get outside and stop watching so many Bond movies.

    Then again, a Bond movie tonight sounds like a good idea!
