Taiwan is also called the country of intellectuals.
The population there may be less, but it is number one in the world in terms of technology.
Taiwan ranks first in the world in terms of chip making.
This country produces everything from laptops to expensive phones and watches.
Taiwanese company One Major is one of the world's largest chip makers.
In terms of chip manufacturing in the world, this company alone produces more than half.
In such a situation, the whole world is dependent on Taiwan for the chips used in everything from electric vehicles to phones, laptops and ships to satellites.
If China establishes its dominance over Taiwan, then it can be successful in establishing its dominance in the western Pacific Ocean.
That is why America is completely shocked about Taiwan.
