It is a bit like the pot calling the kettle a nigger when the US claims that everyone in the world is hacking them – even if it were true that everyone in the world was hacking them, which we have no evidence of.
Because what we do have evidence of is Crypto AG, an international cryptology company out of Switzerland that was run by the CIA for the purpose of hacking everyone on earth.
Washington accusing other states of leading cyberwarfare against the US is like “a thief crying ‘stop, thief!’” Beijing said, reacting to revelations the CIA used Swiss cryptography firm Crypto AG to spy on hundreds of countries.
The US government has “conducted large-scale, organized and indiscriminate cyber theft, tapping and surveillance on foreign governments, businesses and individuals, a fact already well-known to all,” China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a daily briefing in Beijing.
These spying activities, which violate international law and undermine trust between the US and other nations, had been unmasked by whistleblower Edward Snowden and by WikiLeaks – a fact Geng was also keen to remind the audience of. Among other things, the Americans have been collecting billions of phonecalls around the globe on a daily basis and were even revealed to be spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s phone.
The Chinese official pointed out that Washington never explained itself over those leaks and “now the Crypto AG incident adds… one more thing for the US to clarify to the world.”
Last week, the Washington Post revealed that the US had been using a Swiss encryption company, Crypto AG, to monitor “secure” communications between as many as 120 countries since the 1970s and well into 2000s. The firm sold “encrypted” devices to government agencies worldwide, but was secretly owned by the CIA and then-West German intelligence. The Americans hailed the operation as the “intelligence coup of the century.”
“Facts have proven time and again that as the largest state actor of espionage in the cyber space, the US is worthy of the name of ‘Empire of Hackers.'”
Geng said the US has “no credibility” in accusing other countries of hacking and spying, but it “keeps playing the victim of cyberattack[s], like a thief crying ‘stop thief’!”
“It’s hypocrisy on the issue of cyber security [that] could not be clearer,” he added.
The US also accuses others of using Facebook ads to “meddle” in their elections, all the while they are running entire media conglomerates in every language on earth for the purpose of trying to change the internal politics of other countries.
They also run entire schools for the purpose of training people to rebel against their own governments. All of the leaders of the Hong Kong riots, for example, were from Western-backed schools in Hong Kong, most of them funded directly by the State Department through the National Endowment for Democracy. Literally “US Government sponsored domestic terrorism.”
And yet somehow, these people think they have a moral right to claim that they are the victims of the entire world.
The United States government cries out “democracy hacker” as it hacks your democracies.
Of course, the bottom line is that anyone has a “right” to do anything they can get away with doing, and the population of the United States is apparently so stupid that the US government can get away with all of these hoaxes and people just say “yeah must be true, I heard it on CNN and then I read the same thing in the New York Times.”
