Trump just threatened the Modi regime with retaliation if it refuses to export the anti-malarial drug Trump is touting as a cure for coronavirus. As insane & belligerent as that is, it is not very different from the justification that launched the nearly 19-year war & occupation of Afghanistan. Even if the drug were a proven cure for the virus, there is no obligation under the trade laws of capitalism for India to give it up. Competition is the ethos of the system, not cooperation, even against a deadly epidemic. Cooperative relationships require changing the system from one that prioritizes profits for the few to one which prioritizes humanity as a whole.
