Japan / China the rare earth minerals story – discovery

Japan / China the rare earth minerals story – discovery

In 2010 the commies in China in a dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands placed an embargo of sorts against Japan.  China reduced their export and raised the price of rare earth elements (REE) exported to Japan. 

These minerals are essential in the production of many electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, etc.  China being the world’s number one exporter of this element. 

The Japanese then decided to explore an alternative source.  They recently discovered a supply of rare earth elements with a supply to last for about four-hundred to seven-hundred years.  These minerals were located off the Japanese atoll of the Ogasawara Islands.  These minerals fall within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of those islands.

The commies in Beijing with agreement from the South Koreans are claiming an atoll does not enjoy an Exclusive Economic Zone, thus making the minerals available to any nation.  Really?  What about China stealing atolls in the South China Sea and claiming Exclusive Economic Zone off those stolen atolls?

Hypocrisy and no consistency by the commies.  Oops there is consistency by the Chinese in that they are consistent in not being consistent.
