    The Communists seems to always have the corniest propaganda. Specially those Maoist types their fashion statement is atrocious

    they don't even know Canada exists. The only reason americans do is because of the shared border.

    Fortunately, the world's oceans are rising, or else a Chinese island might suddenly appears inside the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone.

    I suppose but don't believe that is a major concern when mining rare earth.

    Rare earth mining is expensive and dirty because you need to process so much material.
    Now add in the fact it's underwater, and this is a very complex and environmentally risky operation.

    If a material is only known to be concentrated in one place, a place that doesn't belong to you, then the material is rare, for you.
    It won't be for Japan. (if they ever figure out how to extract it)

    The ocean is vast and largely unexplored. lol what is so preposterous ?
    A mine full of gold could be found in some random wilderness tomorrow. How is this different?
    You would have more of a chance of discovering shit like this in the ocean if it wasn't so difficult and costly to explore and extract the resources.

    In 600 years, tech will have already advanced to such an inconceivable level, we will probably be able to transform a pound of car poop into a pound of these rare materials with very little energy.

    If we don't blow ourselves up
