    1. I am a GREAT fan of Jacinda, and support her 100%, but on this issue with Australian troops overstepping in Afghanistan, she is wrong. The Chinese are right, ‘all’ Australian troops involved should get the maximum punishment for killing innocent civilians – which is a war crime – and the government of Australia owes Afghanistan an apology and reparations.

      And on the investigation of the origin of Covid-19, Australia is only partially right – there SHOULD be a thorough investigation into the origin of the virus, but such an investigation MUST go well beyond China and include the possibility that the virus started in the US, as blood donation samples and tests on dead bodies in California that died from an earlier time than the first case in Wuhan have tested positive for Covid-19. There are also credible reports of Covid-like symptoms from people in California as early as the summer of 2019.

      We may well be looking at a US bioweapons experiment in California that went haywire, and a concerted US coverup that placed the virus in China much later to deflect attention. Only a THOROUGH, independent, and credible investigation will uncover the truth.
