Go back to the 1980s…
You see, in America, there’s a fixation on profits whereas in China the industrial policy is for the long-term when it comes to national security.
Rare earths which are the lifeblood of the new high tech industries for both civilian and military purposes. Over time the United States does not have a viable workable industrial policy.
Chinese companies acquired American companies for the distillation of rare earths.
Those are the raw components necessary for the technology required for everything from smartphones, fifth generation airplanes that fly and even nuclear subs that deliver knockout blows from under the sea.
While we have plenty of raw material we do not have the corporations owned by American firms straight out without foreign ownership.
Mastery of the world’s new empires rooted in rare earths.
AND LOST IN THE WEB OF TARIFFS AND WTO AND TALK OF PRESSURE ON CHINA
NORTH KOREA IS THE CARDINAL FACT CHINA HAS THE ACE IN THE HOLE
AND NOW THE ROYAL FLUSH –
“YOU GET UPPITY AMERICA AND WE TURN OFF THE SPIGOT OF RARE EARTH SUPPLY AND YOUR ECONOMY AND MILITARY WILL CRASH WE SIT ASTRIDE THE WORLD AS HEGEMON AND YOU’RE REDUCED
TO THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY “
Neither Party has the guts to admit they both fouled up and deserve the utmost condemnation for our STEWING IN THE STEW WE CREATED
NOT HAVING THE BRAINS TO SUBSIDIZE THE COMPANIES NEEDING IT FOR SURVIVAL OF THE NATION RATHER THAN THE WASTEFUL KIND FOR THINGS
LIKE SOLAR PANELS
