You can see with the Indian Army marauding in Kashmir, with Russian, Iranian, Turkish, Syrian, & US troops prowling the Syrian countryside, with massive deployments in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, Libya that militarism presents massive dangers in a pandemic. We can be sure millions of soldiers are deployed without any screening whatsoever. Whilst they are using the pandemic for greater social control, we must find ways to protest the ruling elites’ form of internationalism: war, occupation, plunder, genocide. It is the cholera epidemic brought to Haiti by UN troops after the 2010 earthquake writ large.
