“Another reason for the Japan-US pact is that Taiwan's TSMC won't build a cutting-edge foundry off the island.” The crux of the matter...

How do we offer to transplant the segment of the population that identifies as Taiwanese and the high technology to the US? If China wants an island so bad, let them have it. We would happily take the people, who are the true gems of the island, and some 2nm goodness:)

I imagine most people are probably not going to want to leave their homes and move halfway around the world to a different country with different culture. They undoubtedly want to keep their country under their control if at all possible, and probably feel that keeping their cutting-edge semiconductor production local will encourage the international community to support them should China try to make a move.

A major factor in Taiwan's success is it's deep, often personal and family, enmeshment with the Chinese mainland. It has succeed on such an amazing scale because it is free but also because it has had huge advantages in maximizing access to Chinese production, labor and markets.

The CCP has encouraged and required deepening that enmeshment and integration at an even deeper level for Taiwanese firms than that required of Western firms.

During the early history of the development of Taiwan they considered mainland China their lost territory. Many still see it primarily that way and consider themselves Chinese upholding a tradition usurped and destroyed by the CCP.

Over 1 Million Taiwanese citizen's/resident's live and work on the mainland often as managers and coordinators of joint ventures and partnership.

I think that this is what drives the CCP to the extremes. The Taiwanese example of Chinese Freedom and success without CCP "Leadership and Guidance" is very close and very visible to the people. It undermines their primary ruling justification that only the CCP could have brought about the growth China has experienced and that more than justifies all the repression, cruelty and corruption.
