Is it feasible for Obama to seperate China from the new free trade framework leading by US?
  
China left out of Obama free trade party

With the rise of China in its sights, the Obama administration has posted marines in Darwin, Australia and increased the number of warships visiting Subic Bay in the Philippines. The “pivot” to Asia now has a new stopover: Brussels.
After years of discussing the idea, the US and the EU are finally starting to negotiate a free-trade agreement which would form an economic zone covering 40 per cent of the world’s gross domestic products.
At the same time, momentum is building behind another important trade initiative, the Trans-Pacific Partnership which brings together the US with several of the Asia-Pacific region’s most dynamic economies: Singapore, Australia, Vietnam and – since two weeks ago – Japan. It will come as a surprise to anyone who spent a lot of time on the campaign trail last year but free-trade agreements have emerged as one of the biggest priorities of President Barack Obama’s second term.

For south east asia countries, i think free speech will be more welcomed than free trade.

US sees itself losing confidence in economy, military and ideology.

But there is no need for China to view US with anger or that US is declining. Instead China should see US in a different light and extend the same kind of co-operation China would to Africa of course taking into account the difference between US and Africa.

As US locks itself in a "Chinese Adversitry", China should act otherwise. Instead China should approach the EU, the AU, Asians and Latin-Carribean Americans with the same enthusiasm without targeting US in particular. This way China first demonstrates its intention of peaceful rise and differentiates itself from US war-mongering mentality, more accurate mind-set, whether socially, economically or militarily. No point of China keep harping peaceful rise but keeps on baring its fangs and claws only. Demonstrate good international undertaking not just in economy but on social aspects as well internationally. China has to become independent technologically not dependent technologically.

Obama and the thieves who hired him think that by threatening the Asian pacific with black mail and military threats is going to turn them against their biggest new trading partner like China. The thieves' old thinking of military threats, puppet propping, and slavery should not defeat China's new ideology of non-interference in other nations' domestic affair, mutual respect among nations, and economic corporation.

Those who don't follow the thieves in the U.S.'s rule are being murdered, humiliated, and tossed out. But the fact is that, the thieves failed to destroy China and China and many other nations like Vietnam has becoming the world's economic engine. The thieves' "pivot" to the Asians pacific to destabilize the region like they did the the Muslim world  will fail. Asians people(well most of them) are not as stupid as the thieves in the U.S. think.
