The lady doth protest too much, methinks.


From the headlines of the worldwide press:

Chinese DM urges stronger information security
China says it will take measures to uphold its information security in ...
China to step up own security after new NSA allegations

I suspect much of this is theater for local enjoyment. No government can appear soft on something as "ungentlemanly" as this.
