Semiconductor War Escalates

The news on Twitter is that the Biden Administration has informed all Americans working in the semiconductor industry in China to cease their employment immediately or their US citizenship will be cancelled. There has been a predictable exodus. What does this mean for China? A huge hole in their component industry, essentially crippling much of their tech output.
This also means that Taiwan is very likely to be invaded by China in the very near future because that is where a large proportion of the worlds semiconductors are produced.

Semiconductors can be found in thousands of products such as computers, smartphones, appliances, gaming hardware, and medical equipment. They are also known as semis, or chips and the production of these key components in electronics can take many years and a large amount of revenue on research and development to establish. It’s easy to see why China wants to acquire Taiwan so much.
