China holds a permanent seat on the Security Council ... with veto power ... so, NO, the UN can't do this ...
Is it because of the veto power only? What if it was a member of the UN without veto power? Does the UN have the authority?

This is not at all like an act of war. It was not deliberate, and China was harmed more than anyone.
They got the warning out soon enough so that no one has any real complaint.

Nor should this have cost anyone an amount that would warrant reparations.
Anyone closing down their economy did that on their own, for no reason.

With a death toll of 225k out of 330 million, that is only 0.06%, which is insignificant.

So the UN does not have the authority?

How do you know it wasnt intentional? Specifically.

The UN is not at all like a government.
To be like a government you need a constitution that delegages jurisdiction and powers.
There is no such UN documentation.
Instead the UN acts arbitrarily by the whim of the members, much like a dictatorship.
So it likely can do whatever the members decide to do.

Somehow we need to bleed at least $10 trillion from China. We should move a bunch of our manufacturing to other nations.

As to why China did not likely do this deliberately, if they had, then they would have first perfected a vaccine for themselves.
As it is, they ran the greatest risk and loses.
Nothing gained.
So then it can't be deliberate.

UN has nothing,,,, but blue helmets that make good targets.
Ok, so no authority at all. Got it. Not sure what use they are.
The opposite really.
The UN has infinite, arbitrary authority.
You just have to get the members to agree to anything.

And that is the reason the UN is dangerous.
It does not act by rule of law.
If the corrupt gain control, it then is a force for evil.
And it has.
For example, the Korean war was wrong.
They US empowered those who collaborated with the Japanese, to massacre trade unions who had fought against the Japanese.

From what I understand they allowed flights out to other nations after they knew the virus was spreading internally. That sounds like intentional spreading to me. That is a biological attack.
