How many border walls would the $100 billion taxpayer dollars sent to Ukraine build if it was used for that purpose? 🤔
That's a strawman argument if I've ever heard one. It doesn't matter how much money, weapons, and humanitarian aid, we've sent to Ukraine, Mexico was going to pay for the border wall, your hero said so, every time he got the chance on the campaign trail. And 70,000,000 or so of you voted for him. You'd think he'd keep just one simple promise. Wouldn't your time be better spent parading around Red square, spraying "Zs" on anything that was unfortunate enough to get in your way?

$100 billion US taxpayer dollars and counting sent to Ukraine. Go figure eh. Then there's the billions of dollars the cartels have made off of child trafficking due to Biden's open border policies.

HAHA LOL Chen can't predict what TSMC's workers would do if China invades so he's basically blowing smoke from his Ahole. My bet would be TSMC's employee's would likly destroy the FAB before letting China have a single piece of silicon

If the implications of an invasion are that bad, I begin to doubt that China would dare to ACTUALLY invade Taiwan. It sounds very bad, worse than I expected.

But then again, the whole world is now so reliant on silicon technology, we're massively addicted on both a personal and professional level.

I am sure ASML and the other manufacturers can remotely brick most of their equipment.. or just put it in a special mode where it causes defects in the output product. I am sure most of that kind of equipment has to connect to the mothership to operate just like John Deere tractors do.
