Here’s my opinion.
China’s diplomacy is developing with the global trend and the current situation. It’s not like some other’s words that using the same trait over and over again.
What most teenagers and netizen see is only a tiny fraction of the foreign affairs. When something happens, they urge the government to take the immediate action to show some strength rather to think about the question in a big background.
In fact, in times of challenge and new world, China do have good ways to dealing with the world by coordinating its diplomacy with its ultimate goal: rejuveniting the country.
