China, Japan and rare earth in context
My name is Alexander Muir. I'm a Canadian who emigrated to the US a long time ago, so my spelling is off, and now I live in China...
Your story on the China/Japan dispute (Nov 4) was completely one sided. While it is certainly true that in this most recent incident China has acted like a bully towards Japan and has perhaps encouraged the halt in rare earth shipments to Japan, previous incidents show the Japanese (or Taiwanese or Hong Kongers) to be the aggressors. By not giving the history of the dispute, you bias your listeners' opinions in favor of Japan against China.
