'Quad' countries to agree on secure microchip supply chains-media

 29 days ago

TOKYO, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Leaders of the United States, Japan, India and Australia will agree to take steps to build secure semiconductor supply chains when they meet in Washington next week, the Nikkei business daily said on Saturday, citing a draft of the joint statement.

U.S. President Joe Biden will host a first in-person summit of leaders of the "Quad" countries, which have sought to boost co-operation to push back against China's growing assertiveness. read more

The draft says that in order to create robust supply chains, the four countries will ascertain their semiconductor supply capacities and identify vulnerability, the Nikkei said, without unveiling how it had obtained the document.

The statement also says the use of advanced technologies should be based on the rule of respecting human rights, the newspaper said on its web site.

The draft does not name China, but the move is aimed at preventing China's way of utilising technologies for maintaining an authoritarian regime from spreading to the rest of the world, the Nikkei said.

The United States and China are at odds over issues across the board, including trade and technology, while Biden said in April his country and Japan, a U.S. ally, will invest together in areas such as 5G and semiconductor supply chains. read more

Biden, by his own admission had his head cut off twice. Maybe the enemy planted some evil chips in there, that is the only explanation for his behavior. Vote Trump Red as if your life depends on it, IT DOES.

And it starts to come into focus a little clearer. They are basically admitting they planned all of this on a global scale for this very purpose. There is no theory but it is a Conspiracy!! Watch and learn.
