No problem: Do what the USA does with trade agreements - ignore the WTO & NAFTA
When the US is on the losing side of a trade arbitration it simply ignores the decision.
Witness the argument with Canada over hardwood shingles (wooden roofing tiles) and softwood lumber (2x4's) - they simply blackmailed Canada into doing a quickie bilateral agreement - Britain has signed those, ask Blunkett, so UK perps (alleged) can get deported to the US for trial.
GM had a rare metals operation once, but it sold it off - with US government blessing - to /drumroll/ the Chinese!
Don't know why the Japanese are complaining - they have an exclusive on a mining hole in Northern VietNam whereby they ship all their rare stuff back to Japan for refining.
At this very moment the US is bashing VietNam over the head with threats to block the ever popular Tiger Shrimp business with a surcharge ... unless the VNese bend over and submit to yet another bilateral agreement.
I think we should block McBarf and Starbuck (where the hookers hang out) operations until the States gets the message. Back off, Bully!
