Timothy Geithner arrives in Beijing today, and not only are his hosts unlikely to heed any calls for faster yuan appreciation, they also aren't expected to be too enthusiastic about any plea to cut back on Iranian oil. "China will be less OK with it than Japan," says Near East Policy's Matthew Levitt, "But neither wants to be seen as rogue."

    We are the rogues...they are the clever conservative ones. We play our silly little games...while they sit wait and accumulate wealth.

    I have to agree with Mr. MacGregor. It's been a long march from Nixon's opening to Obama's bowing. It's also telling that our Secretary of State isn't our key contact but instead we send our Treasury Secretary going hat in hand.

     

    Don't those clever conservative Chinese realize that it's part of our culture that we have the need to save face?
