Obama hasn't figured out yet that China IS a world power. Worse, one that holds a lot of our "markers".
China is just testing out it's newly won economic muscle. I read somewhere that China made Australia back off on raising interest rates recently..... it wouldn't be good for China was the explanation.
Ah Ha! ..... but was the interest rate rise good for the Aussies? I guess we won't find out now.
The "only Super Power" on the planet (so we are told, at any rate) has created a contender for the crown, or, at the very least, a competitor. Too bad I won't live long enough to see how long China will be able to hold onto the brass ring.

They are still a third world country flush with funds with no future fresh income sources.Their economic 'bubble' will burst soon and they will be forced to conserve their capitol for regrowth.
They have shown themselves to be an aggressor with Tibet and seem to have a whiny attitude that they have a world destiny to fulfill.

Zero split the difference. He met with him which likely pissed off China, but he met him in the Map Room and then had him leave the White House via the exit where garbage is put out. And Obama is supposed to enhance our image around the world???
Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall looks pretty pissed that she has to escort the Dalai Lama past the White House garbage. Maybe someone in the White House actually has a clue.
