    The term "bailout" is probably the most misunderstood and misused word today. Bailouts rarely involve direct loans, or simply giving money to the party in trouble. In most all cases, they actually involve investments. The bank bailouts in the US involved buying stocks/stock options and assets. Bailing out a government is when investors buy more bonds.

    The bailout part comes from the investors assuming or taking on the debt and risk of the one they are investing in. Governments invest in other government bonds, when they benefit from trade imbalances which produces a surplus of money. China has one of the largest trade surpluses in the world currently

    Because China is a huge emerging nation with a lot of cash, and since its government controls most of that cash, it is relatively easy to make a deal with them. China - emerging nation - practical marriage of communism and capitalism - the next superpower (if they don't blow it).
