... which is entirely compatible with my point. There is an implicit global consensus that these things are bad. And just like worse things, like torturing or even murdering your own citizens, they are often done anyway by corrupt and power-hungry politicians, or because someone thinks it's a "necessary evil". Outside of the English-speaking world, though, it is never defended as something that is entirely OK to do because "everybody else does it".
This kind of justification makes it infinitely more dangerous and scary. I prefer a thief who says "I know stealing is bad, but my family has to eat" over one who says "It's a dog-eat-dog world, everyone else would steal, too, if they were strong enough". The former might actually stop stealing once his family is fed.
Additionally, I'd venture that the named countries do not have any desire to extend their intelligence gathering capabilities to private citizens outside their territories, so currently, the Iranian government is the Iranians' problem, while the Five Eyes governments are everybody's.
