Chinese have recently been paying more attention to diplomatic issues, with discussion on politics and diplomacy proliferating in social media. And many people aren’t happy with the way things have been going. Take the attack on two Chinese vessels on the Mekong River, which resulted in the deaths of 13 crew members late last year. There has been a growing sense in online discussions that Chinese diplomacy in that region has failed. Aside from the fact that the culprits remain at large, the attacks have also reminded many Chinese of how tense things are in Southeast Asia. For a start, there are concerns over Burma, the Philippines and Vietnam.
