    Tim,
    The USA is not as dependent on Natural Flake Graphite as you have been lead to believe. My company Asbury Graphite has been involved in the Natural Flake graphite business for 120 years and we do not purchase 100% of our demand from China.
    I have not read or seen the Pentagon’s Strategic and Critical Materials 2015 Report on Stockpile include Graphite thus i can not comment on if this report is accurate.
    I can say that I do not believe the USA government should be involved in keeping stockpiles of Minerals. The USA government use to do keep a strategic stockpile of Graphite and finally sold off all the supply. If the USA feels they need a strategic stockpile they should work with privit industry.
