Taiwan - Next Move?

Lots of sabre rattling, rhetoric and deployment of machines of WAR - while the world is distracted by Taliban memes and Taliban twitter trolling does Taiwan teeter on the brink of Chinese invasion and occupation or something else?

Seems to be ratcheting up. Taiwan is a major manufacturer and exporter.

Losing its output would be very disruptive. Could be a serious blow to world output and exacerbate the current goods shortage. That in turn would led to much higher prices. This in turn would crowd out funding for housing and might depress prices.

What do pinsters think ?

Trump predicts ‘something will happen’ between Taiwan and China after Olympics

Donald Trump predicts “something will happen” between Taiwan and China after the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics while saying America is at “the lowest it has ever been”.

Speaking to Nigel Farage on GB News, the former president said: "There were no planes flying over Taiwan, you didn’t talk about Taiwan when I was president.

"They’ll wait until after the Olympics I presume and perhaps something will happen.

“It’s not good if you’re there and you have bombers flying ver your country,” he added.

Mr Trump also said the US “is not respected anymore.”
