Covid Quandary

Then you agree with me. My point was that the US is NOT 'hoarding' which presumes it has excess supply that it is withholding from other countries for nefarious reasons.

That wasn't what you said, but you are certainly free to play with semantics. Pretty sure I recall the USA denying sales to Mexico after Mexico allowed part of its expected shipment to be sent to smaller developing nations.

And it's only natural that countries will want to vaccinate their own first.

Maybe natural in a basic instinct sort of way, but I don't recall the USA giving up any of its supplies to smaller nations like Mexico did. So is Mexico just stupid to do so and then to seek help from its much larger neighbor with the manufacturing capability? Perhaps. But I still believe Mexico set the better more enlightened example, even if it means we have to wait a little longer.
