We would probably stop doing that kind of research in the US and would probably stop paying foreign countries for it too.While I think there is a strong case to be made for that sucker leaking out of that lab what do we do with that information if we can prove that it leaked?
USA - Look! We have proof that it leaked from Wuhan! (shows proof)
China - Nope. That is fake news. Didn't leak from here.
USA - China is lying! Look at this proof.
China - Yeah no... Didn't happen here...
USA - BUT WE HAVE PROOF!
China - #ShaggyDefense
Now what? It's kind of like the whole Russia is committing war crimes in Ukraine. What you gonna do about it?
It would be political suicide to allow it if we had proof such research caused the pandemic.
