The reason for the huge US investment into Solyndra was because the business plan was to use a technology to make the glass panels without REE. Solyndra failed because the Chinese began to dump their solar panels into the US before Solyndra reached critical mass.

If we are to face those kinds of rates (very doubtful) what are those foreign countries facing? Who, in the long term, is better equipped to handle those rates? These foreign countries are not stupid. They know full well who will win. Are they willing to bankrupt themselves, or are they more inclined to come back to the bargaining table?

You mean the @21 Trillion ?? of which Obama was responsible for $8 Trillion ??

But OH WAIT !!!! Isn't it CONGRESS that writes the appropriations bills ?? Isn't it congress the passes the spending bills ?? and WASN'T THAT CONGRESS CONTROLLED BY REPUBLICANS FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS OF OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY ?? Which means the majority of the debt added during the Obama administration was added by a REPUBLICAN CONGRESS !!

A sum Obimbo asked for! If your suggesting that money should have never been appropriated, I agree.

Well bleeding silver or gold, it amounts to about the same thing. As for the U.S. being involved in the "opium wars" too, against China, it wouldn't surprise me much.

That is one of the main points. But slavery is BAD!!! Do you understand? B! A! D!!!! For one reason, there are species of ants out there that have evolved employing the practice of taking other ants as slaves. Now, the slaver ants can't even feed themselves unless the slave ants feed them. With this being the case, it is the slaver ants who are the real slaves.

Also, as I said elsewhere, look at the Great wall of China, the Pyramids and many many other similar projects. The REAL reason for their construction was almost certainly employment. One of the reasons why is probably because, in a way where it didn't exist, was the old saying "Idol hands are the devil's playthings." Right now there are something around 26 million unemployed working age adults in the U.S. And something around 22 million who are underemployed.

As for any "free trade" with China, consider this. The average hourly salary for an American worker is $23.32. The Average hourly salary for a Chinese worker is $1.36. What in the hell could we make that they could afford! So what needs to be done is to cut off almost all trade with China. Start making the products we use for ourselves. Put around 20 million Americans to work. Give another 20 million a livable wage.

Is that "devastating" or just semi devastating, or is 10% nothing to worry about?

We aren't North Korea or China. Also, we used to make most of the products we used. There is no reason we can't do so again. As for rare metals, though I don't know, there is likely some mineral that is plentiful in the U.S. that isn't in China. Trade in that. Also, China has the world's largest population. That is a lot of hungry mouths. The U.S. is rich in arable land. (For the time being) So we could trade food with China for the things we don't have much of.
