This is just a hypothetical question, would Americans and American politicians care, if Russia did a tactical strike on Israel, if Israel had attacked Russian bases in Syria?
Americans irrationally sympathise with Israel. Israel can intentionally attack a US ship and kill about 30-40 of the Sailors on board and injure another 130 or 140 and the US will do nothing about it.
If Iran looked at a US ship funny they would "return fire" in self defence...
I am pretty sure that those companies will be moved out of China at some point. What do you think will the Chinese do in response? I am pretty sure they have been preparing for this but what do you think they will do?
To be honest I think china has outgrown those companies anyway... they are never going to be chinese companies, so while they are an education on how a company can be successful and competitive in the long term they are foreign owned companies that compete with Chinese owned companies for market share at home and abroad.
The Chinese response should be to get behind the Chinese companies that do the same thing and support them internationally to replace these hostile western companies in the Chinese and international market.
Russia does not have a local Apple direct equivalent and therefore would be much better off with Huawei rather than the choice of Apple or nothing else. If there is a Russian direct equivalent then competition with Huawei is a win win because it challenges the Russian maker to work harder, but the competition is not so destructive and insidious to Russia as Apple is.... with their software and hardware backdoors for the CIA and NSA...
Trump represents the de-offshoring faction of the US elites. The MAGA slogan is not just vapid hot air. The globalist clowns thought
they could gain hundreds of millions of customers in China and India and the rest of the "developing" world and that throwing Americans
and Europeans under the bus was small price to pay. It turns out that Chinese and Indian companies put up show stopper competition
for those hundreds of millions of new consumers. At the same time the sweatshop profits that western transnationals were raking in
have started to decline substantially over the last 10 years as the natural evolution of development is raising wages in previously
dirt poor countries.
Trump is saying what he is saying to get votes.... he could care less about American workers... it is the 0.1% that control the US... he couldn't force Apple to come home any more than he could force the military to fix all the problems on the F-35 within budget...
Offshore production bypasses workers rights and payrate laws... you can wipe out more people than were directly killed by Chernobyl and get away scott free if you are a chemical company with a factory in India... it would have destroyed a lot of very rich families if that had happened in the US... instead they just folded up the company and there was no one left to sue or to take to court.
Following MAGA, western transnationals will be re-shoring production to America and western countries. India will not be the new offshore
paradise even if the workers make less money than in China. The globalist economics era is ending.
The problem is that looking at his other policies of better relations with Russia and bringing the troops home, I would not hold my breath regarding moving US tech companies workforce back to the US...
Ironically they have a problem with Porto Rico.... they should make it a tax free zone for the US companies operating there... it would solve the problems of the locals and the big companies...
"Just days after Mike Pompeo’s visit to “Israel”, the Chinese ambassador to “Israel” has been found dead."
When I read that I was expecting to see... Cause of death suspected to be suicide as the injuries... 6 stab wounds to the back, three gunshots to the heart and four to the head, with hands and feet amputated with the arms and legs bound... suggest suicide...
