4. the Chinese government doesn't have to worry about being voted out of office

they can make unpopular decisions that harm their people as a means of fighting an economic war.
Besides, they manufacture so many things we need and no longer make.
We can't win a trade war with China.
We would have to rebuild our manufacturing capabilities first, and that would take a decade or more.
China knows this.
And then there is the other possibility that they just tell us to f**k off and turn to other world markets to buy and sell with.
Rare earth minerals are just one thing they can use to fight this war.

We are so screwed.
