Mr. Chairman, and distinguished members, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to appear before you today.
I submitted some written remarks, Mr. Chairman, and I ask that they be submitted for the record.
"In the past, Japan attacked China, and occupied the better part of China. There are now some Japanese capitalist class representatives who see us and say: We are deeply sorry, we in the past had aggressed against you all. I said: No, if it weren't for your aggression and your occupation of the better part of China.

Remarks on Technology Transfer from Taiwan to China: Is there a Risk?
by John J. Tkacik, Jr.
For two decades, American foreign policy operated on the premise that trade with China would have an inevitable liberalizing effect. This persisted after the Tiananmen crisis, and even after the 1996 Taiwan Strait missile crisis when Beijing attempted to intimidate Taiwanese voters from casting ballots for President Lee Teng-hui. It was at the foundation of Clinton's China policy and apparently undergirds the Bush policy as well.
This is an interesting and informed view of a professional in China intelligence . . . I understand this represents his own views, but they are significant nonetheless

News today that Baotou Steel Rare Earth Group will "suspend production" of rare earths for a month . . . to stabilize falling prices. (see Chuin-wei Yap's article in the Wall Street Journal at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203897404578076030548046800.html)
This doesn't sound like a price-driven decision . . . the price of rare earths has gone up 10 times since 2009 . . . this is more like a shakedown of the global IT industry.
All the major news agencies reported a few moves in the Chinese People's Liberation Army leadership yesterday including: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297020363060457807449359393777... http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2012/10/23/a8fd9504-19e5-11e2-ad4a-e...
" . . . Would-be US leaders would do well to note that for probably the first time since the second world war the dollar bloc in east Asia has been displaced. In its wake a currency bloc based on China’s renminbi is emerging. . . ."
