Trump regime lies, deception, arrogance, and threats to humanity

The Trump regime exceeds the worst of its predecessors - headed by a militantly hostile to peace, equity and justice/profoundly ignorant and arrogant president.

He and the criminal gang infesting his regime threaten everyone at home and abroad.

They bear full responsibility for a US public health crisis, economic collapse, and increasing human misery affecting most Americans and countless millions abroad.

Theyíre guilty of the highest of high crimes against humanity, accountability nowhere in prospect.

Their anti-China rages risks confrontation with a nation able to hit back hard against an aggressor if attacked.

Yet US aerial and naval provocations occur regularly near its territory.

Pentagon warships and heavy bombers were deployed to Guam for purposes of harassing China.

In response to recent provocations, the Peopleís Liberation Army (PLA) intends to move its Shandong aircraft carrier group to South China Sea waters to defend its territory from hostile US actions.

Days earlier, two Pentagon supersonic bombers flew a 32-hour roundtrip from Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota to the South China Sea, an air force statement saying:

"The (provocative) mission demonstrated(d) (its) dynamic force employment model in line with the National Defense Strategyís objectives of strategic predictability with persistent bomber presence" to challenge its adversaries.

In late April, one or more US supersonic bombers provocatively participated with Japanese warplanes in the Sea Japan near North Korean waters.

Beijing warned the Trump regime that it wonít tolerate US intrusions in its territorial waters. Pentagon warships entering them will be expelled.

Days earlier Chinaís Defense Ministry spokesperson Wu Qian said "(r)eality has proven once again that the US is the biggest facilitator of the militarization of the South China Sea, and is a trouble-maker for the regionís peace and stability," adding:

"The PLA will remain on high alert, and adamantly safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests, as well as the peace and prosperity of the region."

In response to Trump regime Big Lies and deception about China, the countryís official broadsheet Peopleís Daily denounced its mishandled COVID-19 and economic collapse response, saying:

"The tragedy that is happening in America is actually a humanitarian crisis resulting from the incompetence of the (Trump regime) in dealing with (COVID-19) outbreak(s)" and dire economic hard times.

"While lives and families in America are being put in danger, what are the politicians doing?"

Trump spent a weekend golfing at Camp David, while "Pompeo repeated his claims that he had a lot of evidence that the novel coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, but failed to provide any of it" because it doesnít exist.

"While turning a blind eye to (its own) humanitarian crisis," itís "stir(ring) up trouble" in other parts of the world.

Chinaís Global Times (GT) said Trump regime "attacks on China are a desperate attempt "to divert attention from reality."

The whole world knows US claims lack credibility. While Trump and hardliners surrounding him play the blame game, America leads the world in COVID-19 outbreaks and deaths, numbers increasing daily - one-third of the former, 28% of the latter.

The US has around 4% of the worldís population. Its science community and healthcare system are state-of-the-art.

Yet its indifference to public health and bungled COVID-19 response is the shame of the Trump regime and nation.

Iran far ahead of US in containing COVID-19 outbreak

Despite all-out US war on Iran by other means, Tehran University Professor Mohammad Marandi explained that its authorities began combating the coronavirus straightaway as soon as the first case was discovered - polar opposite the Trump regimeís botched response that continues to this day.

Marandi slammed the US for "weaponiz(ing) the coronavirus for the Iranian people by prohibiting Iran from using the banking sector, by prohibiting Iran from purchasing goods from important pharmaceutical companies."

"The United States has put so many conditions on different pharmaceutical companies across the world, that they will not work with Iran."

Despite enormous constraints imposed on the country by the Trump regime, Iran is far ahead of the US in containing COVID-19 outbreaks.

It developed its own diagnostic test kits for domestic use and export.

Widespread testing goes on daily. Numbers infected so far number about 105,000.

Around 80% of patients recovered, 2,700 still in serious condition. Around 6,500 died.

Many infected Iranians displayed mild symptoms and were treated on an outpatient basis.

The coronavirus remains a threat, but Iranian public health authorities are bringing it under control.

According to Iranian Health Minister Saeed Namaki, "the country is in the phase of disease management..."

"Today is the time for full-fledged combat against the virus. God willing, we will control coronavirus by late May. The virus should be controlled in the minimum possible time."

On Friday, the daily death toll of 55 was the lowest number since outbreaks began around three months ago.

In the US, thousands of outbreaks and deaths occur daily, no end of them in prospect.

A final comment

On Friday, Chinaís Global Times (GT) noted that US House GOP minority leader Kevin McCarthy announced the establishment of an anti-China task force to deal with a threat by Beijing to the US that doesnít exist, adding:

No matter which right wing of the US one-party state runs things, hostility toward China will continue because of its growing preeminence on the world stage.

In response, Beijing "needs to prepare for a long-term challenge," said GT, adding:

"First (it must) strengthen and enhance (its) core scientific technology and military strategic power."

"The US (aims) to strangle China with technology export restrictions."

"China must stick to its bottom line and prepare for (a) worst-case scenario" with a hostile US.
