There's going to be another MASSIVE chip shortage once China takes Taiwan. Even if they manage to capture TSMC's main facilities intact and get everyone to work there as if nothing has ever happened and it's business as usual, China will be sanctioned and embargo'd so heavily it won't be able to buy equipment or sell chips.

China has watched carefully as the world takes a hands-off "too big to fight" stance with Russia. I'm sure China knows they're also "too big to fight".

There is no way to embargo China, the world's factory and practically the world's biggest economy, the latest attempt by the US only hurt the US economy, while China grew by 8%.

The US strength in the globalized market is weak, Russia, for example, continues to trade and receive goods from China, by ship, by train, and what can the US do? Fighting both, NATO has already shown that it has no military capability without American support, and Turkey that it has is much more allied with Russia and China.

And Russia is not using anything in Ukraine, of the fleet of fighters of more than 2 thousand they have used so far 180, between fighters and bombers, of the tanks that exceed 6 thousand they have used and are using 500, in the vast majority old t72 and t80, Ukraine has records of only 5 t90 and 10 terminators. It's as if Russia wants to stall the war so that NATO enters and the real war happens. And according to an EU minister, the aid provided so far to Ukraine has already depleted NATO's military stockpiles.

This is one advantage of enormous size and controlling multiple parts of the process. More sources for innovative ideas that can be rapidly implemented across the organization.

Russian and China military stockpiles doesn't appear from thin air too. Also Russian military besides high tech weaponry shortage due to sactions now begin to face serious manpower shortage. China however will not go into war with US and NATO not now and not after 5 years. More likely Xi will go bust in CCP People's Congress at end of year. And his successor will prefer trade over muscle flexing and soft power which always worked for China just fine. So stop dreaming.

China is building the largest naval fleet and the largest amphibious invasion fleet for nothing. The US doesn't scare anyone even more with missiles capable of sinking aircraft carriers

Russia have lost more than 700 tanks already, let alone "only 500 used": https://www.oryxspioenkop.com/2022/02/attack-on-europe-documenting-equipment.html They have deployed a not insignificant proportion of their active materiel.
NATO supplies to Ukraine have been relatively limited, mostly due to issues of compatibility (e.g. NATO have stockpiles of 5.56 NATO and 7.62 NATO ammunition, Ukraine primarily equipped with 7.62 Soviet, so arms and ammunition needed to be supplied as a package deal complicating logistics) and training (knowing how to operate an S300 system does not translate into knowing how to operate a Patriot system) due to complexity of modern weapon systems. Self-contained man-portable systems have thus been the most exported (such as the NLAW), as they have minimal logistical backhaul to support them and training can be very rapid. Second are export of legacy systems that are already in use in Ukraine but had been retained by NATO countries with a mix of NATO and ex-Warsaw Pack equipment such as Poland. Export of updated NATO systems will take time as Ukraine personnel are trained up on their use. This is obvious in the case of aircraft, but modern armoured vehicles, artillery systems, etc are of much higher complexity than even a few decades ago due to their networked nature.
