This really doesn't surprise me at all. Everyone spies on everyone. Allies even spy on allies. I remember reading that the biggest and most
flagrant spying in the United States is actually committed by none other than France.
The only thing interesting about this story is that they were actually caught, because I'm sure this goes on so much without anyone ever catching
wind of it.
As for renewing arms sales to China, I think Germany's economy is too lousy for them not to. They're battling rising unemployment and the big
problem of the Eastern section of the country never really catching up with the West after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
