U.S. spies targeting Chinese politicians, businesses, and mobile users

The United States government has routinely targeted Chinese government officials and business leaders for some time now, according to the China Internet Media Research Center. The report also blames the U.S. for breaking international law and violating basic human rights, with lawmakers in Washington, D.C. and Beijing blaming one another for growing cyberespionage tensions.

"As a superpower, the United States takes advantage of its political, economic, military and technological hegemony to unscrupulously monitor other countries, including its allies," according to the report. "The United States' spying operations have gone far beyond the legal rationale of 'anti-terrorism' and have exposed its ugly face of pursuing self-interest in complete disregard of moral integrity."

 

It has been a rather chaotic relationship between the United States and China, with both countries lobbing cyberespionage accusations at one another. China is the leading source of cyberattacks, though government officials noted they are increasing their cybersecurity protocols to also defend themselves.
