In this photo taken Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, dusty remnants of an abandoned cave dwelling where Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping used to live during his youth when he was sent to learn peasant virtues at Liangjiahe village in northwestern China's Shaanxi province. Xi, 59 and the country's vice president is expected to take over as head of the ruling party in November, 2012, before becoming president in 2013 of an increasingly assertive China. The Liangjiahe years are among scant details known about Xi's life and personality partly because he himself chronicled them as a key formative experience. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)

FILE - In this Nov. 12, 2011 file photo, U.S. President Barack Obama, right, meets with Chinese President Hu Jintao at the APEC Summit in Honolulu. In the simplistic narrative of U.S. presidential politics, China is a Hollywood villain, a monetary cheat that is stealing American jobs. But in the debate Tuesday night, Oct. 16, 2012 the one-dimensional caricature offered up by Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney obscures the crucial reality of U.S.-China relations: For all the talk about getting tough on Beijing, the U.S. and China are deeply entwined, defying easy solutions to the friction and troubles that beset their relations.

The newly commissioned Liaoning is China’s first aircraft carrier. It was put into service on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012, underscoring the country’s ambitions to be a leading Asian naval power, although no warplanes have been seen taking off from or landing on the ship — making its current utility as a strategic power projection tool questionable.
