More likely they don’t want people throwing away their money suing another country, especially one known for its indifference to international law.
Maybe but a lawsuit actually leads to discovery and other things. Seems like even if there isn't financial gain it could be more of a statement of accountability.

Where would such a lawsuit be tried? My understanding is that the US dropped out of the World Court.

So, they get to decide how someone spends their money now? Get the fuck out of here.

So Fauci is a Democrat?
I have no idea what his political opinions are but he knows right now that it's the Democrats right now that support him and his opinions. The Republican side basically mocks him. So yeah, he knows which side he needs to keep behind him. You upset the Democrats and suddenly everyone hates you.

Of course he could just keep his opinions and knowledge consistent and piss everyone off.

Is he an elected oficial? I really thought he was appointed by Trump.

He's a big Hillary admirer, so that hardly screams "Republican."

He was appointed by Pence to the Coronavirus Task Force. He is just a member, but has self-appointed himself as spokesman of the task force. Pence is the Chair.

That part is beyond absurd. Maybe it doesn't help consistently against Covid, who knows, but all these people screaming about how dangerous it is are nuts. No, just biased. The drug has been in use for 60 years now.
My dad and my cousin have taken it for years for Lupus without any side effects. It is all 100% fear mongering for two reasons:

1) Who said it. The people who say they would find a reason to want to keep cancer if Trump found a cure are spot on.
2) They have no desire for anything to be administered that would help with Covid-19. They want this going strong straight through to the election so they can push the widespread vote by mail bullcrap.

So what did he do before, was he in the private sector? Seems odd that he was able to “self-appoint himself”.

He has served under 6 US Presidents going all the way back to Reagan. Including the Bushes, Clinton and Obama.

But Birx has dedicated her life too and is suddenly a Trump sycophant because she didn't endorse all the Dem's policies

Yep the sides just chose the expert that says what they want to hear. Birx has a more positive outlook on the outbreak so of course Democrats think she is trash. Fauci has a far more negative outlook so they love him. I don't think either is particularly political but they have both fallen on sides of the fence regardless.
