If they are, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re our proxy by our choice. No doubt that we need Taiwan for their micro chips, and we need Ukraine for all the jobs they create for our elected leaders’ crackhead children, but both Ukraine and Taiwan came to center stage because the Commies gotta Commie.Is Taiwan our proxy with China, as Ukraine is with Russia?
My thinking was not original -Here is my thinking.
Covid revealed the weakness of the global economy. Far flung supply chains really mucked things up. The muck was made worse by China being at the center of so much of the supply chain.
That weakness has to be addressed. We are making noise about bring things back on shore, but I am not sure how real all that is.
The WEF has recognized the global supply chain weakness.
The most successful aspect of the war in Ukraine is the WEF nations solidarity in ostracizing Russia.
China would face the same fate if they invade Taiwan. China will either be brought to heel, or they will be on the outside looking in at the WEF nations.
My guess we will eventually have two poles in global power, the WEF nations and everyone else.
