    The media is hyped about his comparison of the China-US relationship to a straight marriage. But it missed one important part that Wang said following that: "...we have many differences, but one thing is similar, that is, back at home, the husband has to do what his wife tells him to. " I think the message is pretty clear. China has no problem to see the US treading the world, but in a bilateral discussion, the US needs to behave.
