    Here is how the news shapes up ahead of the summit.

    Might this climate deal be nothing more than a symbolic gesture by China to thumb its nose at Russia on behalf of US.

    Might this oil price cut be a gesture on behalf of the Saudis to bring Iran to the discussion table.

    So the Russians sign a second major gas deal with China, agree to build nuclear reactors for Iran and send their naval fleet to Australia ahead of the G-20. Meanwhile, US signs a "climate change" something-or-another with China and starts another land war in Iraq. Who is showing up to the G-20 as the alpha dog? US needs an ace up its sleeve.
