China Halts Rare Mineral Exports To US And Europe, Prices Set To Surge

The latest escalation in the binary version of modern warfare (i.e., that fought with a Bloomberg instead a stealth fighter), comes from China, which the NYT reports has just halted shipment of rare minerals to the US: "China, which has been blocking shipments of crucial minerals to Japan for the last month, has now quietly halted shipments of some of those same materials to the United States and Europe, three industry officials said on Tuesday." As we disclosed a few weeks ago, prepare for an explosion in various rare metal prices...

More from the NYT:

The Chinese action, involving rare earth minerals that are crucial to manufacturing many advanced products, seems certain to further ratchet up already rising trade and currency tensions with the West. Until recently, China typically sought quick and quiet accommodations on trade issues. But the interruption in rare earth supplies is the latest sign from Beijing that Chinese officials are willing to use their growing economic muscle.

Huh? That's basicly an overt attempt at sabatoging the ability of the United States to manufacture goods. Is anyone awake at the wheel here in the U.S.? Do they have any idea WTF they're doing? That is outright trade war.

Well when one country has to do the dirty work and produces 97% of the worlds rare earth minerals they have to cut exports eventually or they will run out and have none for themselves. America would do the same if they were China and had access to cheap labor to mine those rare earths.

They (China) will shoot themselves in the foot. It's not that the minerals are that rare, the problem is the pollution and high costs associated with mining. The US is already booting up old mines to weaken the reliance on China's minerals.
