For a price anything can be obtained. For a price far cheaper than war, China could obtain EUV. War is staggeringly expensive and for a fraction of this cost, about 20 to 30 billion I have no doubt China could obtain the technology and materials to build their own and this would be a small fraction of the direct and indirect cost of a war, which would easily past a hundred billion in direct and indirect costs. War is the last refuge of the incompetent. Look at the true total cost of the Viet Nam war and adjust it for inflation cost one trillion dollars. That could buy a lot of people, materials and expertise. Any thoughts, comments or counter arguments appreciated and sought. Israel stole the plans and manufacturing methods of the French Mirage Fighter at low cost and I'm sure the Chinese could study this and learn.
