@gadgetcool5 bro my take, tech wise compare to SK and TW Intel is lacking (still stuck at 10nm), that is why the US gov't under the behest of Intel DEMAND a FAB in the US ( TSMC FAB is beside the plan Intel FAB in Arizona), Investing in Europe they want the EU subsidies the same with the US. So the Winner in this tech war is Intel an American institution and a big lesson for us Asian, hard work will not guarantee your security and independence, standing up will. Even though it may endure hardship in the beginning to earn RESPECT you have to fight for it. And they had the power to do it, we had the knowledge and IP they don't and with the chips shortage let see who blink first and I'll bet you a certain person with the name of Anthony will...lolWhy is Intel investing in Europe and not the US, if the US is so concerned about semiconductor nationalism? It seems the US paranoia is only directed against Asian companies, even if they are from supposed allies like South Korea. What this really is is a form of White technological nationalism. But Japan, South Korea and Taiwan refused to acknowledge this because that would imply the unthinkable -- that their natural allies are the Chinese and not the Americans.
Again I always point to @FairAndUnbiased previous post about an Asian Spring, the US will have to be careful, an alliance is there if both side shared a common agenda. But if its against its national interest especially if economic survival is at stakes then that alliances will self destruct. The US bereft of leadership will only hasten its decline, the Chinese after been subjected to sanction and adversarial policy never used such underhand tactic cause they know its self defeating.
