    Source.

    Well, well. Who's being hegemonic? Before taking on the west, China thinks it can practice playing dirty politics in its immediate neighbourhood. If India ensures China success is as limited as possible, China's own credibility to take on the west will be severely undermined.

    As quick reference, "Hegemony" = having ambition for world domination. "Impetuous" = delusive / impulsive.

    China is trying to become USA/Japan. They must start learning from USA's/Japan's misadventures quickly as well.

    Its an opinion piece for heaven's sake. China daily's opinion piece looks something like this Chinadaily BBS - China & the World - Cow (India) Desire of Hitting Bull (China), its like a forum where members post their views.

    Indian media(IBN in this case) has its own style of adding spice to a news of a man who has no significance in actual policy making.

    Here is another opinion piece of same China Daily China and India must be friends, not turn into foes . You wont find our media quoting it ever.

    I do not know, why our media have got this sudden Anti-china obsession? They are like sharks searching around web for someone from China to post something against India and bam.. it becomes headlines. Look at their website China Daily Website - Connecting China Connecting the World. Search their website for indian news, there is hardly any. Most Chinese media hardly discuss anything Indian. It is only our media which just wants to aggravate the tension to raise their TRP's in the process making people worried .

    The comment was the words of Bill Clinton, a few days back in Washington, replying to a question "How can India overtake China and become a world superpower?"

    Another article from the same website:

    QM, People's daily is considered to be the official mouthpiece of CCP party and most of the thinking of CCP leaders is relayed through such opinion pieces. Don't take such things for granted. There is a reason why that opinion piece is highlighted in Indian media, because it reflects the thinking of Chinese leadership.

    You are right. It's almost CCP's tradition that important policy making comes out of a relevant editorial commentary. But these articles are not.

    The title of the article said "China Daily" but the actual article is quoted from "People's Daily", both are different papers. Now is that responsible journalism?
    (Original Source: Indian hegemony continues to harm relations with neighbors - People's Daily Online)

    The same people's daily quoted the following opinion upon Indian media which never got quoted.

    Indian media stinks up public opinions - People's Daily Online

    ^ That is true. Whoever talked about dismembering India was merely a "think tank" forum poster / blogger.

    Fear and Anger sell.

    I think whoever in China believes that India is going to turn into a superpower, not so much a belligerent neighbour, is grossly mislead, and is probably making a quick buck selling FUD just like IBN. At least you know it's the same with Chinese media.

    I gave this article some credibility because it allegedly came from CCP's mouthpiece.

    All i can say is that both sides need to calm down. This aggression and war-talk is not going to benefit either country, and an actual war would definitely destroy both countries' ambitions of being superpowers. Continue on the path of peaceful cooperation and talks.

    Indian media, especially, needs to stop making a big deal out of every little incident. It seems to do that way too often with other things also. At times it could be a good thing, but in this case, it is not.

    I do not agree with the view, India is a peaceful soft state.
