G7 nations support WHO while calling for review and reform

The White House announced Thursday that leaders of the G7 nations called for a ’thorough review and reform process’ for the World Health Organization (WHO). Tuesday, US President Trump said that he was blocking US funds to WHO. A spokesman for German PM Merkel ’expressed support for the WHO’ while Canadian PM Trudeau saw ’need for international coordination and the WHO is an important part’.

Here's an interesting thought: maybe the US government should get out of the business of propping up charities like this. Let the Gates Foundation and other well funded philanthropic organizations pay for them and demand whatever level of accountability they think should be applied.

Globos: “we need the WHO to protect us from disease at a time like this” WHO: *lies on behalf of a genocidal authoritarian dictatorship, causing the entire world to become engulfed in a pandemic* Globos: “we need the WHO to protect us from disease at a time like this” It’s times like these that remind me just how accurate the NPC meme was. They don’t even acknowledge the events happening in the world around them. No point in trying to reason with them. If worse comes to worse they’ll just censor all the bad truths away like newsvoice does.

Jesus, what a load of uninformed, heavily-over biased *crap* written in this thread, told by people with no clue what's going on, just what Fox News slams down their fat effing throats like it's da gospel.

The WHO failed on every front. They failed to do their primary job of coordinated national response, they failed to keep the other nations informed, and they failed to cover up the mess afterward. They need to completely change and the leader needs to be a doctor of medicine elected by the member nations.

WH0? More like CHO if you ask me. With the amount of funds they are pulling in, a rebrand and name change should be affordable.

A level 4 WCDC lab breaches (inadvertently or not) a bio-weapon upon the world costing trillions of dollars in lost productivity and hundreds of thousands of deaths for their adversaries, the WHO carried water for them, and the reaction is "We may need reforms"?

Yea we should pledge $1 and then claim we are part of 68 countries. What a bunch of phonies. But pretending WHO is helping is still a joke. If the WHO didn't exist we would have had a much better outcome. No advise, is infinitely better than bad advise during a crisis. It's like being on fire and someone yells, it's not that bad just ignore it, or pour some gasoline on it.

We need to give our soldiers medieval knight armor to protect them at war! We need to fill cars with packing peanuts to protect people from accidents! You need to wear not just one, but two condoms at once! What do you mean none of this protects anyone, and taking these actions puts the people we are apparently trying to protect at greater danger? We need this stuff to protect people! This is what you sound like right now.

Cool. The WHO gets money, but the US doesn't pay a dime for it anymore, even though it was the largest donor before. The same situation remains, except at least the US isn't paying. That is a win for the US.

The WHO is incompetent and corrupt. Nothing they say should be taken seriously after this ridiculous fiasco. Countries should stop financing it

So what we're seeing is lip-service from a host of world leaders who feel woke without having to sacrifice much of anything. Bill Gates contributes more than the entire nation of Germany. Canada's contribution isn't even a fifth of Gates's. This is the definition of slacktivism! Americans alone pay for nearly half the WHO budget.
