According to press reports, the coming two-day retreat of Obama and Xi at Rancho Mirage was cobbled up on the spur of the moment.  It has been not so secretly praised as an example of diplomatic deftness on the part of China, based on the maturity of the bilateral relationship.  With so many issues on the table, it seems logical to expect that some mutually beneficial agreement is likely to be forged with a two-day intensive meeting.  Indeed, it is a worthwhile goal.

But reality is not easy to change.

The fact is, the North Korean crisis is less about denuclearization than about regime change, and how to effect it, in the name of denuclearization.  And regime change is not about improving the lifestyle of the North Koreans, but about encirclement or seige on China in the final analysis.  So, to expect some kind of an agreement on North Korean regime change based on what both sides have long agreed upon, Korean denuclearization, is hard to imagine.

The fact is, Diaoyudao is a part of China, but nobody wants to acknowledge it.  So how can there be any agreement on how to deal with a problem nobody wants to recognize?   Tough.

And so on, and so forth, the list goes on and on.

Realistically, since the two sides are still quite far apart on all major issues, after the ambience of rosy expectations gives way to the cold, freezing rain of discord and distrust, we should expect US-China relations to deteriorate rapidly, particularly as there would be no new meeting to look forward to for a long time to come.

Better then for both leaders to lower their expectations of their coming summit, and simply agree to draw up an agenda for future talks by their subordinates.

In short, it would be far better to agree on disagreeing, than to disagree on what they expect to agree on.

ROAD SLIPPERY AHEAD - CAUTION!

So, does it mean that, one is to agree to disagree on the TRUTH, but to disagree to agree on the LIES, when what one has posted is classified as " Negative Information"?

所以,它的意思是一個是同意不同意真相,
但不同意達成一致意見的謊話,當你已經張貼,
是歸入作 “的負面信息”?

The fact is, Diaoyudao is a part of China, but nobody wants to acknowledge it.
If Diaoyudao is in fact a part of China, why does it allows it to be occupied by a foreign power for that long, as it is currently doing it to one of its own national tabloids .... the China Daily?
