US fears Russian subs near undersea cables may cut off communications
US military and intelligence officials are anxious about Russian submarines and spy ships operating around undersea global communications cables, The New York Times reported, adding that the main concern is Russia cutting the cables during conflict. Im worried every day about what the Russians may be doing, Rear Adm. Frederick J. Roegge, commander of the Navys submarine fleet in the Pacific, told the newspaper.

The undersea cables are seen as a serious vulnerability because of their importance in US economy and military and the lack of protection against a potential attack. They carry global business worth more than $10 trillion a day and more than 95 percent of daily communications, according to the NYT. But the locations of most of the cables are well-known and can be relatively easily reached without anyone noticing

So, all of a sudden these 'cables' are most important. What about all the satellites? There are supposed to be thousands and thousands of them.
There are no satellites. The earth is flat.

no, he is right, you cannot just cut off the internet by cutting a cable. this is pure propaganda against russia.
also, with growing support in the net for russia, in a case of war, maybe us would profit more than russia from such a cutting-event

There are NO underseas cables! Don't you realize how impossible that is? No cable could be made to stretch that far, and how could they be maintained at the bottom of the ocean ?

Re: US fears Russian subs near undersea cables may cut off communications
OMG ... who would have thunk it?

In a time of WAR one country might try to cut the communications links of another country?

What a NEW Revelation to the US Military and Alphabet Agencies. I am glad they are SO SMART that they (JUST NOW) realized that!!

Imagine what could happen if our various (US Government) Agencies were so dumb that they couldn't see that kind of potential for years on end?

I for one am glad our Government is the smartest one around ... it makes me feel really really safe!!

Well Tess, we (that is Britain) have done similar things to Russia, HMS Conqueror spring to mind and cutting/plus nicking a few miles of Russian sonar array cables.. But outside of a much more heated conflict it's highly improbable that Russia would bother.. a few others might..

Though being cut off from Social media might not be a bad thing.. I could be quite happy without social media :)
