    China - which imports 60 per cent of its iron ore from Australia - is looking at sourcing supplies of the steel-making material from other markets.
    Iron ore is Australia's largest global export and China -the world's biggest steel producer - is our biggest trading partner.
    China aims to build one or two major overseas iron ore mines by 2025 under a five-year government plan, Reuters reports.
    Blah blah blah etc...

    It does say that China was moving ahead with this plan before our government initiated trade tensions last year, but still, that's a big hole in our economy. There's no easy way to reverse course and fix the problem thanks to our idiot in charge.

    HAY GUYZ did you know that

    A new survey finds that a third of Americans embrace a nuclear strike that would kill a million people.

    Imagine that North Korea starts, once again, testing long-range missiles that could reach the United States. Should we drop a nuclear weapon on them, killing a million innocent civilians?

    You might expect most people would answer that question with a firm, resounding no. Such an action would be morally despicable, of course. It would lead to many, many deaths. Security experts say it would do very little to advance US interests, and it’d destabilize the whole world, increasing the chance of other nuclear exchanges, with catastrophic consequences.

    But it turns out these reasons wouldn’t faze a good number of Americans. A survey by YouGov and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, published Monday, finds that a third of Americans would be in favor of a nuclear strike even if it killed a million people.
