    Taiwan/TSM is Safe, AI/ML will compound on themselves

    Aircraft carriers are large, slow, very expensive targets. Drones and missiles controlled by advanced chips will make carriers a poor choice for modern warfare. Also sleeper torpedoes and mines that only trigger on a ships signature are changing warfare radically when they are used. The...

    Taiwan/TSM is Safe, AI/ML will compound on themselves

    At this point in time, China is in no condition economically or militarily in any condition to invade Taiwan. A war would not only be severely damaging, but costly on a scale that makes the Ukraine war a minor conflict. World trade and economics would be severely damaged and China already has...

    China could obtain EUV, far cheaper than war

    Industrial espionage is but one of many methods and if done correctly, can be done on the cheap. I knew some truckers who took on a super major tech company by going to the same bars their engineers did and discovered they were committing fraud against their customers and figured a way to take...
