And, cut your supplies so you US can;t wage wars all over, without Chinas' Rare Earth metals used to make all your bloody War materials,Arsenals, jet fighters... as the US war mongers are ones causing all the problems , dissension, division all around the world !

Stop crying over something you can't go to war for. You just getting used to being deny of your access to China's minerals. If you want it so bad, why don't you, the USA & NATO declare war on China the way you did on Africa, Middle East and other part of the world? Declare WAR for rare earth already, why don't you? Come on, stop being such a coward!

Seems only China cares about the environment. The greedy pigs of the world can go mine their own.

China's through carrying these freeloaders.

while I believe China is indeed trying to protect its supply of rare earth...

it is also no secret that China shuttered 100 thousand factories in 2008

and continued to shutter heavy polluting factories even as the world was sliding into recession

Rare Earth Mining is extremely polluting

on one hand you losers in life attack China for its pollution but then attack it when it tries to cut back on it...

here is a solution there are rare earths in places like the USA, and Greenland... the west can start to pollute their own countries mining these rare earths...

the government would invest 4 billion yuan or $600 million to clean up environmental mess associated with the rare earths mining and it was determined to close down polluting producers and phased out out-of-date technology used in the extraction of the raw materials.

The sharp spike in the price of rare earths was also defended and the accusation of the government manipulation of price was also denied. Mr Su said the price of rare earths only increased 2.5 times between 2000 and 2010 and by comparison, the prices of gold, copper and iron ore had all increased by more than four times during the same period.

‘‘Rare earths is such a precious resources and have value similar to that of gold. And yet we sold them at prices of cabbages and carrots in the past,’

Stop crying about something you know nothing about, Fool.

There are Rare Earth metals in other regions around the globe. The reason China has cornered the market so far is because of their cheap labor to mine it. So now, after the price rises, we'll see other locations begin to mine it, too. The Western US is one location. Japan and some S. American countries, too, have Rare Earths(Chile, I believe). Afghanistan is another area.

You talk too much and think too little, dood.

China will sh*t on the Earth to make a buck so don't lie about China's intentions, dood. We've all seen the pictures and read the stories about China's horrible pollution record. You're not posting here to children, idiot.

Fool. You are one of those Wu Mao Dang(50 Cent Party) getting paid for your stupid propaganda posts. China has been cutting off Rare Earth sales to its electronics competitors for the past few years and bullying them with threats of economic superiority. Typical Chinese behavior. The Japanese and Koreans are now seeking new sources. F*ck the Chinese and their silly threats.

And now, they're claiming they are doing it for altruistic reasons to save Mother Earth.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Go pick up your Fifty Cents, jerk:]

China is doing the right thing, dangerous operations should be shut down, only the ones with the safest and most effective means to mine rare earths should be allowed to operate.

And if shutting down "dirty" production facilities causes contraction in supply that leads to higher prices, China's competitors in the electronics industry will be priced and supply-restricted right out of business.

Gee, what a coincidence, eh?

Fool.
