On July 30, the Communist Party of China’s Science and Technology Daily published an article entitled “The Path is Clear – New Coronavirus Found in Europe Comes from Fort Detrick“. The article, which was spread widely in ifeng.com, Sina.com, YouTube, Global Times and other media, is the usual tactic of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to muddy the waters and create doubt about its own culpability through deflection. This is nothing new, but foretells that the world’s hostility towards the CCP will skyrocket.
The background of Science and Technology Daily is not simple. It formerly known as China Science and Technology Daily, was jointly founded by the State Science and Technology Commission (currently called Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST)), the Commission for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) on January 1, 1986, and renamed Science and Technology Daily on January 1, 1987.
Science and Technology Daily is a daily newspaper with a focus on scientific and technological issues. It is the central mainstream news media for domestic and foreign public circulation in China. The name of the newspaper was designated by Deng Xiaoping himself.
The newspaper is distributed in 31 provinces and cities throughout China, and has correspondents in the United Nations and other developed countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, South Africa, Israel, Brazil.
Science and Technology Daily declared: “A November 2020 paper by Italian researchers noted that blood samples of 111 people (out of a total of 959) who had been screened for lung cancer tested positive for antibodies to the novel coronavirus. The earliest samples were collected in the first week of October 2019, according to the Mirror (UK) and the Washington Post (USA), indicating that these patients had been infected at least as early as September 2019.”
Strangely, the article does not tell readers the title of the so-called Italian researchers’ paper, nor does it indicate the titles and specific dates of the relevant reports in the Mirror and Washington Post – the kind of unverifiable and cheap lies that only the CCP tries to pull off.
Even more absurdly, the article states: “According to the latest report from the U.S. World News Network (wn.com), it was the U.S. military that brought the New Coronavirus to Europe through its blood program in 2019, and civilian volunteers who entered the U.S. military base in Italy became the earliest victims.”
An inspection of the U.S. World News Network (wn.com) site reveals that it is merely a news search engine. In other words, no matter what rumor is created by the CCP, as long as it is put on the Internet, the search engine will pick it up. The CCP has uses the phrase “According to the latest report…“, without even stating the name of the article, to fool the public, and embarrassing itself in the process.
The article continues its lies by stating: “The WHO then intervened and the samples were sent to laboratories in Italy and the Netherlands to be retested using different methods. These two laboratories retested 29 original and control samples, and antibodies to the new coronavirus were observed in both original samples. Moreover, the earliest of the samples in which antibodies were detected by both laboratories was collected in October 2019.”
The intent of the article is very clear: to pin the source of the virus and the pandemic on the U.S. military. The problem is that the WHO is considered an overseas branch of the CCP, so why didn’t the CCP “order” the WHO to disclose the evidence it had and catch the U.S. military in flagrante delicto?
The key to the CCP’s actions is the intention behind the lie.
On July 29, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian declared that the U.S. was guilty of three crimes in the fight against the epidemic and traceability: the U.S. is the country that spread the virus; the U.S. is the country that concealed the virus; the U.S. is engaged in “traceability terrorism”.
It is clear that the CCP will deny the virus to the end and is prepared to choose violence as the final solution.
Simply put, the CCP is bent on being the enemy of the whole world, and it is not hyperbole to say that the CCP could launch a new biological virus attack, or a war in the Western Pacific, at any time, pushing humanity into the abyss.
