Re: Cable tapping

"I watched an amazing documentary about the US tapping underwater cables owned by Russia and Russia doing the same back."

If anyone has doubts about the US's ability and determination to tap cables anywhere, look up the SSN-23 Jimmy Carter and its predecessor SSN-683 Parche

- Attributed as being a key resource of the National Underwater Reconnaissance Office, Parche is said to be "the most highly decorated vessel in U.S. history."
