Yes. While our media whores in the West continue the useless arguments and fear mongering that sells beer and cars on the 6 o'clock 'news product', people continue to die.
Therein lies the rub of the nations that acted like intelligent human beings: their people didn't have the money that the West has to pay leadership to be stupid and selfish in the name of The Economy. The intelligent nations still have enough people who are too poor to buy western style immorality (colonialism).
"A corporation is a pile of money to which a group of men swear moral allegiance." -Wendell Berry
Wall Street is where people with money place bets on the moral turpitude of corporate men.
Donald Trump was where half of America could place a bet on moral turpitude without spending any of their own money.
Joe Biden is little different in the end; another old white man committed to the belief that fanatically competitive colonialism yields "success" for people with boats.
