You're still free, however, to either put some of the old components back so that that's no longer the case, or boot Linux on the thing instead.

Or buy another Windows license, or call Microsoft and tell them what happened......
There are plenty of options in the Windows case that aren't available in the iOS case.

The USA repeatedly claims the role of 'world police' but most times it invokes isolationist policies and avoids large conflicts.

Usually when Americans use the phrase 'world police' it is in the context of something like, "We are not the world police! We should not get involved!"
Most Americans don't want to get involved, but a lot of Americans are worried things will get worse if we don't (for example, when we didn't get involved in the lead-up to WW2).

Even if Porsche invested a lot of money in self-driving research, they probably wouldn't get it first, or best. They would end up licensing the technology from Google or others.
So might as well save their money and instead focus on their core competency, and if demand for a self-driving Porsche ever arises, license the technology.

This is a fallacy known as a hasty generalization.

And yours is an example of the fallacy fallacy.
My point still stands, and I doubt you would disagree with it, that if people want to wage jihad on America, they can find an excuse that will get others to their side. When people already believe you are the great satan, how hard is it really to convince them that the great satan caused their crops to fail? Or any other similar thing that goes wrong.......
