  1. The coronavirus was genetically modified to infect humans. Research was being done at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Wuhan Center for Disease Prevention and Control. There are several published papers documenting this. There is also reference on the Wuhan Institute of Virology website.

    Bullshit, that's all speculation. There are several "corona" viruses out there, including some caused by the common cold. Corona viruses in bats have been studied for years

  3. You give this guy(frank) something to read, he skims it and calls for bullshit until you specifically highlight the paragraph in question. I don’t know if he likes playing devil's advocte or is venting his frustration from staying home by arguing with everyone on ET but the dude is all over this forum with these types of comments lol.

    People make assumptions and when these turn out wrong and they are called on it, they double down instead of admitting being wrong. We've all done this but it's a completely waste of time. Better to do some basic research before going in with confidence.

  5. How is this speculation. SARS leaked out of the Beijing Institute of Virology in 2004. This is documented by credible sources. The University of North Carolina and Wuhan Institute of Virology conducted research showing the coronavirus could be MADE to infect humans 2015. You know what MADE means right? MADE means this:
    "through the use of reverse genetics to create a chimeric virus consisting of a surface protein of SHC014 and the backbone of a SARS virus."

    You want more? I can give you more.

    Scientistic publications are for peer review and information sharing , comparable to this trader's forum. I don't think you can trace down any top secret military level bioweapon from any published papers. A BSL-4 laboratory is not military concept, and not secretive at all. It takes 5-10 years to design, build such laboratory. French scientists handled many of the setup and staff training at Wuhan Institute of Virology from 2005-2014, before it passed BSL-4 registration at 2015.

    Between wanted and an actual international pact lies a world of difference. I don't even know why we discuss that. Every historian knows that the US illegitimately entered Vietnam. The agreement with South Vietnam was for financial support, "goods", and strategic advisors, NOT troops. But hey, perhaps some also call the Iraq invasion an invitation to get a good taste of the oil there.
