CHINESE STATE REPORTERS CAUGHT "SNOOPING AROUND" NATO BASE, GERMANY INVESTIGATES

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Journalists representing China's main state media outlet are in hot water after they were seen filming NATO military equipment and asking probing questions of German soldiers about their daily routines and military jobs.

The incident has threatened to alight fresh controversy related to European and US suspicious of aggressive global spying tactics by Beijing, not the least of which is Chinese firm Huawei's rollout of next-generation 5G products inside Germany, which Berlin has controversially been favorable to, resulting in the Trump administration notifying the German government in March that the US would limit the intelligence it shares with German security agencies should Berlin move forward in permitting Huawei to build the country's mobile-internet infrastructure.

According to a new report in Bloomberg, "Germany’s military is investigating what information three Chinese reporters collected while Chancellor Angela Merkel visited a NATO unit, signaling heightened mistrust of the state-run Xinhua news agency."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The first question I would need to ask is, are why did the Chinese reporters do this so ham-fistedly, in order to draw attention to themselves?!?

The second question I would have to ask, is why did the NATO personnel at the site allow this to happen in the first place?!?

Folks, I need to suggest here, politely, that this may have been an exercise in entrapment on the part of NATO, and was engineered to focus, for Americans and Europeans, on the "China Bad Syndrome", which has been bandied about, in Europe, and the US, for quite some time.
