Valid argument, and agreed with the rest of you.

The Japanese are, indirectly, wiping out the Atlantic Bluefin (and killing whales "for scientific purposes").  Some of our own citizens, and regrettably corrupt conservation officials, are links in the rhino-poaching chain (driven by China's demand).

We could, of course, argue too that we shouldn't buy German motor-cars for reasons that date back sixty years.

I also realize that the computer I am using to tap out this post comprises many parts that are "Made in China" and am made more aware of this by the number of power supply failures I have endured !

However, the Chinese top the list of those that plunder the natural environment ~ so I'll continue to avoid, where possible, purchasing products manufactured in their country.

If you can advise me of a better method of protest, please let me know.
