    That's simple: Because the cost of the tariffs is coming out of the consumer's pocket regardless of geographic location. If no single country were to challenge the US, and despite pleas to do otherwise, they are, then those in the geographic location that the tariffs affect would be the ones paying for it. However, since all nations have promised to impose their own tariffs, every consumer will pay more. You might as well call these tariffs YaGT - Yet another Government Tax.

    (Edit) All these years Chinese and the rest of the world have been using and relying on our CPUs, would that makes the whole world unpatriotic? How about all of us (the USA included) using ARM chips, which was British until recently when it was purchased by a Japanese firm, in our phones? ARM is licensed to the US, Korean, and Chinese chip designers. We need to look beyond border lines to advance.

    Also ... when the Chinese government started a new level of production for AMD, through their Hong Kiat marketplace, it opened new channels in the technology company pretty rapidly. Most of our tech is made in China anyways. We have no way of knowing whether it came from one country or the other. Sometimes it is nice to be country specific with certain products. All in all, the Chinese Advanced Micro Devices division has decided to make x86-based processors on their own doing. This could be a huge catalyst for of exchange in the older and more versatile, 32-bit processor variety.
