@horse bro the US is hemming in its allies preparing for the eventual lost of the Chinese market as China self sufficiency gather pace. Its a short sighted strategy cause it will implode its leadership. They only produced and control a small but critical component/segment of that industrial chain and from that group only Japan will follow its lead while others will depart and form its owned. Nobody wanted to be told what to do but due to the America bullying every one accepts its whim, with China forming its owned complete line, others had been encouraged. Bro I'll see 3 blocs forming (The US with its five eyes plus Japan and TW, China and the EU) with the EU gaining strength as she can trade and do business with both side same with South Korean . And looking at it the biggest loser is Taiwan closely followed by Japan.Sure sounds like the basic idea is for them to form a semiconductor cartel lead by the United States.
Good luck with that.
