Calling it. Simultaneous invasions of the Ukraine and Taiwan.
Maybe, but due to them being a huge player in chip manufacturing, Taiwan is exponentially more strategically important than Ukraine.
nobody seriously believes they would just hand China these chip factories?
Well... we aren't exactly maintaining a defensive posture over there, and while our military might and prowess has slumped by orders magnitude since the end of the cold war - China's has only been hell-bent on massively strengthening and disciplining theirs. If this becomes a shooting war - we might stand a chance - but it will have an immense cost. But if it comes down to an all out war of brute strength and attrition - we're forked.
I was more talking about the factories getting blown up if all seems lost. Creepy Joe won't do a thing to stop the chinese.
ahh.... well - I doubt the Taiwanese would do it themselves... they'd be thrust headfirst into a retaliatory genocide that would likely eclipse that of the Jews. If the US did it - then that would instantly set of WW3 on top of shooting ourselves in the foot along with our allies - since none of us have our own notable capacity in that industry.
At least there will be some urgency to build them locally:-)
