    I have been giving these lawsuits some more thought. Here is what I expect to happen; All these suits will merge in Federal Court. China will make a motion to dismiss. Either the court buckles, or we end up with a truly massive settlement that will represent the confiscation of all domestic assets, and cancelling The US debt to China. China will of course confiscate all foreign owned factories and IP and continue to sell garbage to whoever will buy it, and quite possibly claim more territory.

    the only problem with that is the CIA doesn't care about debt.

    nah. stability is security. The CIA would want to maintain the status quo.
    It is China's secret operatives that would have wanted this to happen. China has been bucking the status quo, and this conveniently took the focus away from them breaking their word on Hong Kong with their actions, while helping with their demographics problem. Then we have China also making moves to insure it does the most damage possible to the outside world while playing with economics to minimize damage domestically. China's internal propaganda machine is also doing it damnedest to get everyone to buy that it is all the fault of foreigners or some foreign government. Anyone they think they can blame, they have. There are some interesting/depressing youtube vids about the treatment of Africans in China.

    what do you think in my scenario is inaccurate? Federal Court is where these suits are taking place, and the lawyers bringing them forward are listing PRC assets int eh US to confiscate. Merging all of these suits into one single action is the most efficient way of doing things. The canceling of US debt to china may not happen directly because of this suit, but I expect something like it to happen or at least some very loud calls for it to happen. Now if the US courts take the property of China, what do you expect them to do?

    Well first, the suit is pure BS grandstanding. Just on the surface you would have to prove China's actions alone caused the harm to the plaintiff. Yet it's up to the federal and state actions to protect against such hazards. If there was harm, it would have to be determined levels of responsibility between all parties.

    So basically, it's a BS suit with no real standing. It will be dismissed, which makes the rest moot.

    But sure, seizing all assets and nullifying bonds is totally believable.

    claims being made were inexcusably weak security at the lab, intentional lying about the disease and intentionally spreading the disease. The claims were based on the economic harm.
