The US and Taiwan would be allies against China in all likelihood.

And everyone would lose.

No, Liberty (the concept) would win. ;)

How naive you are. You think China would come out of a world war more democratic? You think liberty in the US would increase in the face of nuclear war? You think Taiwan wouldn't be potentially destroyed? You think dead people are free?

Didn't Germany and Japan come out of a world war more democratic?

East or West Germany?

Off topic but good article today on Taiwan's Vice President. He's a Johns Hopkins trained epidemiologist, a virus expert. President has a PHD in Law from london School of Economics. Pres and VP are both very smart. Imagine that?

West for sure. You could argue East too.

Trump isn't all bad. Even if this required some a lot of handouts, probably a better use of taxpayer's money than other things (unless it turns out like Foxconn in WI which is certainly a possibility).

What exactly did Trump's administration do here? The article you posted does not mention anything.

Any time now he'll take credit for it.

Or, so you are for a boots-on-the-ground invasion of China with a regime change? That'll be easy in a post-nuclear world  ::)

No, I don't think we should invade anyone. I do think we should have very harsh economic penalties for their lack of compliance.

Do you guys really think a deal like this would have been made without Trump's administration playing a big role?

Weren't you talking about Germany and Japan after the war a second ago? You're giving me whiplash.

Some approvals and such, for such. That's not the same as deserving credit for the deal. Otherwise, everything that requires federal approval in a country is because of the fed? I didn't know you had the federal government in such high regard.

TSMC has known for a long time that the world wants to diversify supply chains outside of Asia, and they'd rather still be the beneficiaries of that rather than let Intel or someone else get that market share.
