    They're leading from behind.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        Supposedly, that was Obama's master plan all along.

          Hussein and Gaddafi weren't so lucky. Guess invasion and occupation of China isn't an ideal solution for US

            For now, the AIIB is more about symbolism than substance. With an initial capital of just $50 billion, one third that of the Japan-led Asian Development Bank, and none of the World Bank’s expertise or institutional heft, it’s unclear how much of a dent the new bank could make in the region’s multi-trillion-dollar needs for roads, dams, bridges and ports. Its governance structure remains ill-defined and, potentially, a subject of controversy if and when the projects it backs start to have negative environmental or social consequences.

              It's so much harder to tackle someone closer to one's own size. Also, it doesn't help that in this current fight all of the US's 'friends' are abandoning it for the other side.

                If it was mere symbol before, the US's caving in and offering to partner it after failing to warn its allies off joining it proves that it has the potential for a great deal of substance.

                  It also has to be considered in the context of waning western economies (EU being more visibly evident to everyone than the US right now).
