Mosher: One way or another, China needs to pay for its negligence

U.S. and China flagsA human rights advocate who spent many years in China believes the U.S. must work with other countries to hold China accountable for the trillions of dollars of economic damage it wrought on the world economy.

While nations around the world prepare to pull out from the economic shutdowns brought on by the coronavirus, there's a growing anger at the Communist Chinese regime for unleashing the plague on the globe. That's according to Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute and an internationally recognized authority on China.

"This has been a wakeup call not just for Americans, but for the British. People at Number 10 Downing Street are furious at China," he begins. "[French President Emmanuel] Macron, everybody in [other] Western European countries … are furious with China because they know that this virus leaked from a Chinese biolab and [that] the pandemic was created by the evil and incompetence of the Communist Chinese Party that let it deliberately spread throughout the world. There has to be a reckoning."

Mosher predicts President Donald Trump will take the lead in that effort.

"I think the [U.S.] tariffs will go back up even higher on Chinese-made goods when we're over this," he states. "I think we will bring back key strategic industries to the United States, including pharmaceuticals.

"We may [even] want to say to China 'You own a trillion dollars' worth of U.S. Treasury bonds. That's the first down payment on the money you owe the United States.'"

Mosher – who in an earlier report questioned the accuracy of death counts coming out of Beijing – contends the U.S. can do a number of things in concert with its allies to make China weaker and more isolated than ever before.

The PRI leader is among a group of China experts, national security practitioners, human rights and religious freedom activists, and business leaders comprising the new "Committee on the Present Danger: China," whose mission is to "help defend America through public education and advocacy against the full array of conventional and non-conventional dangers" posed by the Beijing communist regime.
