For reasons unbeknownst to me, Israel‘s PM Netanyahu has claimed no honor or credit for his excellent leadership making the Jewish State the safest place in the world (25 cases (+ 19 in the by the PA occupied territories), no one died, 1 PA city and 100,000 (1% of the population) in isolation). Maybe his humbleness is to prevent that the government measurements would become political, then non-Likud voters to violate them, endangering everyone. In any case: wise leadership and thank you!
Why are Democrats so mild on the Trump administration that did nothing for a month and a half while the coronavirus was spreading all over the US? This head-in-the-sand tactic (if you don’t test, no-one is positive and there are no infections?), proverbially borrowed from the ostrich, now can’t be undone. This, after health organizations were understaffed and underfunded and epidemiologist job openings were left empty for years. Trump is responsible for so many US deaths to come soon. The economic fall-out will also finish off his chances at reelection. The ensuing recession will be felt around the world, hurting the poorer nations most.
Now the world media are preoccupied with a deadly virus, under its cover, Russia will look for ways to enlarge its military influence around the globe. It already started fighting Turkey in Syria; but that’s only the beginning.
The Iranian People is now plagued (pardon the pun) by poverty from the international sanctions and theft by the autocratic rulers, by a lack of freedom from the religious fanatics who rule them (even more so after the last fake elections), by a severe drought from climate change and government mismanagement, by dense locusts swarms, and now by an epidemic of coronavirus in a country that doesn’t care if they die. We should expect them to rise up and overthrow the junta and help them.
