1. America is not in a state of war.
Spying on an foreign power (such as China or Russia) is valid when it comes to military dominance, and economic impact when at war. People expect their security services to be carrying out this work.
Using such tactics against allies, for economic dominance in peacetime, is an act of aggression.

The revelations of the mass surveillance and data gathering been carried out by the US is disturbing. It is on a scale never seen before in our history. People who have tried to conquer the world before would be very impressed by this feat currently been undertaken by the US.
