Interesting post on rare earth metals.

This article is most interesting on why China has (needlessly) got a lock on rare earth production in the world. Or, at least, when compared to the U.S.

Of particular interest are the comments by Keith DeHavelle on this article. They will drive you crazy, if you aren't already.

The disaster of off-shoring that Pat Buchanan writes about is not to be laid exclusively at the door of Bush. The disaster of the Clinton presidency went far beyond Bill's satyriasis.

So to summarize our presidential experience since Reagan just for the heck of it, we went first to clueless, then to satyr beholden to Communist China, then to clueless, and then to freak acolyte of Saul Alinsky.

PS -- That second link is also well worth your time.

Thanks for linking to the article on Necessary and Proper, contributed by my engineering friend Ed, about the geopolitical situation with rare earth elements.

You mentioned you particularly like the comments by Keith DeHavelle. He is one of the most well-read, well-rounded, and articulate writers I have "met" in blog-land. Here is a link to his excellent blog: http://www.dehavelle.com/

Have a great day.

You're welcome. It's a heck of a post and Mr. DeHavelle's comments are instructive. The extent of the Clinton betrayal is little understood and the story that your post tells speaks volumes. we seem to be unable to select and elect leaders to whom the concepts of loyalty and national interest are not profound mysteries.
