1. People and nations spy, even on friends. But in the realm of international electronic espionage, the US wields a nuclear arsenal while the rest of the globe fights with guns.

...computers used by French delegates at the UN have reportedly been under surveillance, as has the mobile phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. And the US National Security Agency has monitored millions of French telephone calls, according to Le Monde.

According to the press accounts, Americans have been engaged in espionage on France, Germany and other countries - on a scale so vast that even jaded officials say they are taken aback....

2. Trump's latest Huawei crackdown is akin to using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Under the Trump administration, the US has gone all out to pressure all countries to follow in its footsteps to ban Huawei on "national security grounds".

As shown by America's outrageous global electronic espionage, its international campaign against Huawei is extremely laughable. It is akin to a pickpocket shouting "Pickpocket!" in a market. While all the people are looking at the wrong directions for the "pickpocket", the real pickpocket is laughing all the way to the bank with the money he has fished out from their bags and pockets.

With such people as Trump in charge, it is naïve to expect the US to cease its global surveillance operations that "were likely made long ago - and adopted by presidents who later came into office". Neither should the world expect the US to discard all the massive valuable data it has gathered from all countries throughout these years. It won’t be surprising that the Trump administration is stepping up its international electronic espionage, particularly on foreign leaders, regardless of foes or allies.

CIA and FBI agents wear cowboy boots. Look at their shoes. A competent CPA wears wing tip shoes, etc. etc.
