Dan McGroarty, RealClearWorld
What’s U.S. Government policy on strategic resources? Not oil - where we’re fighting out on the front pages who’s to blame for higher gas prices - but the dozens of other arcane metals and minerals from Antimony to Zirconium that go into all the gadgets we use to update our Facebook pages, power our post-petroleum energy alternatives, and - via our Government - launch drone strikes?
That depends on what part of the U.S. Government is doing the speaking.
