It wasn't an invasion, but the US bombing of Laos was a monstrous, senseless, cruel crime against humanity that seems to have memory holed by august personages like yourself.
Putin gave them an offer they couldn't refuse.

… We need to treat the entire healthcare system like a matter of national security, & make sure we have tests + treatments + staff
Good move by Biden Admin to create guaranteed market for rapid tests to ensure large stockpile in event of an unforeseen surge. We need to treat production of tests as a matter of national security and have a large, hot base of preparedness, even if tests go unused during lulls.

And not only Finland. Yet another reason I worry about all this “let it rip” omicron talk, with premature claims about it causing mild illness, especially for children…some attached tweets for thought reuters.com/article/us-healt…

Justice Gorsuch, who held that a truck driver should freeze to death because of his employer's rules and was properly fired for saving his own life...
Gorsuch: "the flu kills hundreds of thousands of people every year" NO IT DOES NOT. STOP GETTING YOUR MEDICAL STATS FROM FOX NEWS.

This means the vaccine producer works with its own national regulatory authority and WHO. If they ask for our additional help we provide it at our own expense. We’re not only vaccinating the world, we’re stopping the disgusting practices around science colonialism…so here we go

Not “vague”—➡️We are staring at a thermonuclear-level bad pandemic 2.0 HMOG wave with #Omicron heading straight at us with BILLIONS infected in the next 3 months (@IHME_UW)—while some hand-wave it’s slightly milder—all while many choose to stay ignorant of exponential math.🔥
Is anyone else having trouble focusing because they have a vague premonition that something bad is about to happen?
