Spy versus spy versus spy

from w
In Sydney Morning Herald.  It's all a beat-up I reckon.  A spy would surely just say 'It's my job!' There's nothing new in it all, - it just happens and USA spies butt in too of course.
Remember the Mad magazine we used to read many years ago - perhaps it's still going. There was often a cartoon page on spy versus spy.

Spy vs Spy

Spy vs. Spy is a wordless black and white comic strip that has been published in Mad magazine since January, 1961. It was created byAntonio Prohías, a Cuban national who fled to the United States on May 1, 1960, 3 days before Fidel Castro took over the last of the Cuban free press. The comic features two spies, Black and White, who are constantly warring against each other, and coming up with increasingly sophisticated ways of doing away with the other.

Abbott refuses to apologise for spying

Canberra: Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has refused to apologise for the Rudd government spying on the Indonesian President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, despite an escalating feud with Jakarta.
“Every government gathers information and … every government knows that every other government gathers information,” Mr Abbott said in a speech in Parliament on Tuesday.
“Australia should not be expected to apologise for the steps we take to protect our country now or in the past.”
Nor should foreign governments “be expected to apologise for the similar steps that they have taken,” the Prime Minister added, repeating his earlier comments that Australia’s spying was done to “help our friends and allies, not to harm them”.
Mr Abbott’s statement followed a series of angry tweets from the Indonesia President overnight and on Tuesday, in which he attacked Mr Abbott’s public remarks over the spying scandal as showing insufficient remorse, continuing Jakarta’s display of outrage in response to revelations on Monday that his personal mobile phone and those of his close circle had been targeted by Australian spies.
