While the U.S. might like to eject suspect diplomats to force the Russians to send in their "rookies," as a U.S. official put it, Moscow would probably respond in kind, denting the CIA's corps in Russia.
This sentence gets to the real heart of the matter.
Lest we forget: we spy on them, too.
In fact, if you were to gather together all the people who act as spies, intelligence gatherers, espionage agents and support personnel for all the governments of the world let alone the corporate operators, I doubt there is a convention town anywhere that could accommodate them all for a weekend.
So sure, we can complain about Russia spying on us, but I, for one, find such complaints to be the epitome of hypocrisy.
Besides, the Chinese are much more aggressive and apparently more successful -- in their espionage activities in the U.S.
Heck, they even owned a president for eight years. Not shabby.

Lets not forget we have plenty of Arab spies running around DC, Israel spies on us too and so does Japan. Of course we have spies there too. I love these articles. As if we didn't do the same to them. I'd have to back hand CIA if they didn't, but don't expect that others won't do it to you to.
Nothing like starting a hysteria.
