Spying on Us

The United States is accusing Red China of stealing industrial secrets. These accusations coming from America are really rich considering the Snowden revelations that show US intelligence intercepts virtually everything transmitted electronically, including a massive program to gather transmissions to and from Mainland China. Is the Obama administration upset that some other nation might also be interested in intelligence gathering? Turnabout is fair play, and I suspect that all the major powers and nations aspiring to become major powers are all engaged in "spying". Let us hope that more Obama clumsiness in regard to this incident does not make our major foreign creditor Red China angry enough at us that they punish us in trade relations wherein we are wholly dependent on Chinese exports. Could Obama have been so naive as to think only America has license to spy?
