shouldn't this read Governments? The only reason the US government is infiltrating websites is to counter other governments who have already infiltrated websites.

We can't be sure, but I wouldn't guess that other governments are the /only/ reason. The commonly held attitude of 'but others did it first' or 'but others do it too' is so childish and wrong to me. Yes they may be trying to counteract other governments/companies/groups/whatever, but it's not like the US/UK was brought down to this level by that 'enemy'. It's more like they led the charge.
