Re: Those vulnerable cables

Honestly I don't think cable cutting is a huge threat to any nation.

I can't speak for every country, but I'm fairly confident most have more than one route in and out data wise, so cutting them off would be quite time consuming.

More importantly though, particularly when it comes to the major superpowers, they'd rather have their enemies online so they can perform cyber attacks on them.
