China is getting more and more belligerent and aggressive with Taiwan and the South China Sea. They are making threats and posturing to do like Russia is with Ukraine.
Meanwhile, some idiot Russian politician was on state TV saying China should shoot down Pelosi’s plane.
The guy sounds a bit MTG/Boebert/Gaetz while Putin is full/evil trump, but still. Why are any US companies having anything to do with China? China wants Taiwan and seems like it is posturing to eventually attack and invade.
Makes one wonder what happens to big US businesses that have invested in China and training Chinese workers - like Intel, Apple, Tesla, and many others who want access to Chinese markets and cheap labor. If Taiwan ever comes to blows, companies will have to abandon billions of dollars worth of equipment and infrastructure. Somehow I bet the Chinese won’t mind nationalizing all the US investments.
And it feels closer as things heat up and Bejing goes more to Russia’s point of view. American companies are just feeding the bear, buying Chinese aircraft carriers, submarines, missiles, and nukes for their military, and looking the other way as technology gets stolen or espionage against the US is discovered.
These companies put the US at a disadvantage, give China businesses to hold hostage, and gives them the money they need to attack us. It’s time to leave.
