    Never suggested that. I was pointing out the bad journalism. They're complaining about something the US was already doing as if it were some crime for anyone else to do it and the US is the only ever victim. Also if you read other articles on this, they charged China was doing it for secrets on Trump's trade war. Really? Nothing more important than trade war secrets that the President of the United States could reveal in the privacy of the White House? If they admit this kind of activity would be difficult to detect how do they know it was about China spying for Trump's trade war secrets?

    Foul & loud - mouthTrump, for his megaglomiac attitudes, blames very other nations, especially China & Russia for everything, that he could not achieve, and could not farthom the finer arts of diplomacy [he does not know the word]-- it is convient, therefore, to lay blames. Everyone is targeting US, according to Trump. Poor little me, spits the dummy when things are not going to his whimps. ' Red under the bed' is still very mcuh alive & has re-surfaced - the jinglism is still going on long after the Korean War in the 50's. Do Trump's administration learn anything?

    Chinese fisherman lauded after reporting ‘spy submersible’
    Canadian device that can monitor maritime activities was found on a beach in eastern Zhejiang province
    By ASIA TIMES STAFF NOVEMBER 21, 2018 7:32 PM (UTC+8)

    The Chinese State Security Ministry has commended a “vigilant, patriotic” fisherman who reportedly found a suspicious-looking submersible on a beach in Zhejiang province.

    The unmanned underwater vehicle was later grabbed from the East China Sea and classed by Chinese national security agents as a “spy submersible probe” from Canada, according to state media.

    The Global Times said in a report that the machine, made by a Canadian company, could reach a depth of 600 meters and was equipped with a high definition camera, a sonar, plus a military-grade positioning system.

    The villager, surnamed Yang, found the thin yellow device, just a few meters long, in Beiguandao Beach in Wenzhou in Zhejiang province in September and handed it over to local authorities.

    The device could not only collect environmental data but also engage in close-range reconnaissance and intelligence gathering, it was claimed.

    It is unclear if Beijing has lodged a complaint to Ottawa or whether the Canada-made device was used by a third country. Canada is seldom involved in the military espionage operations in China even though it is a key ally of the US.

    The state security department said anyone who finds such machines or monitoring equipment should surrender them to the government.

    State papers have highlighted threats to China’s national security as various espionage devices from foreign powers have been used to pry on China’s marine activities. They claim that universities and vital research institutes are “crawling with spies from the West”.

    Zhang Junshe, a senior research fellow at the PLA Naval Military Studies Research Institute, told the Global Times it was no surprise to find foreign equipment and military personnel like those from the US and its allies putting submersible devices into Chinese waters, especially in the East China Sea and South China Sea.

    My guess is something like this, as a submersible will probably struggle with GPS signal strength underwater.

    Quick article on different between military and civilian GPS.

    You expect from the CIA to put text like : "this is the property of the USA government, if found please call the CIA local directorate - 'put here the number of the USA Bejing embassy ' "

    The U-2 shoot down above CCCP was sold as a NASA plane went to wrong direction.
    I am sure about that if you check any spy equipment around the world you will found similar cover stories, the ones wandering around Japan can have text from one Chinese university.
