"Every country is gathering intelligence. The largest and most well-known information-collecting agencies are the CIA and FBI in the US. The FBI has even listed China as their top target."
This spin might work for internal consumption, but it's not very credible elsewhere. The FBI, as America's premier law enforcement agency, has a mission for counter-intelligence. That's not spying -- it's catching and stopping spies.
If the FBI has said that China is their top priority, that would seem to be an acknowledgement that China is a top spy-er, not that the FBI is collecting against China.
I don't think the FBI and CIA are interested in "economic espionage". Let's what see, what makes more sense.......... the U.S. wanting to steal trade secrets from the Chinese in effort to bolster its economy so it can have the worlds most powerful military or the Chinese government wanting to steal the trade secrets from U.S. companies so it can strengthen its economy and overtake the U.S. as having the worlds most powerful military.
Some people really buy into this conspiracy stuff. The next thing you will tell me is that IPVM sent someone to China. Really....we have to stop this.
