Imagine if Taiwan is attacked and TSMC stops making chips.

Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; 
but in that instant he had lost his head. His head was
always most valuable when he had lost it.

> Imagine if Taiwan is attacked and TSMC stops making chips. That's been concentrating a lot of minds, I expect. I hope. A year ago, I'd have said that if the PRC did that, they'd capture a lot of smoking ruins, but then the People Who Know Best in DC pulled out of Afghanistan in a self-inflicted rout, despite the coalition IIRC not having lost a single soldier in 18 months. I'm not a big fan of foreign wars, but it seems like they could have taken their time about it. Who knows how high the treason reaches? Cheers Phil Hobbs

Meh. I don't use many chips from Afghanistan. Do you? Taiwan is different. -- john, KE5FX

If it weren't part of a pattern, I'd agree. But the stink coming from DC is too bad to ignore. Cheers Phil Hobbs

Government is power and power corrupts. We are increasingly ruled by grossly inept power mongers of both parties, people who were their high school class president and never looked back... or had a real job. And there is no shortage of experts to give them guidance. -- Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; but in that instant he had lost his head.

They did take their time. This was in the works since Trmp's time in office. Which treason are you referring to? -- Rick C. - Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging - Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209

Indeed, but with the new administration as much as possible is being done about it. Some smells take time to get rid of. -- Rick C. + Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging + Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209
