Russia Threatening to Cut "All" Communications

14 posts in this topic

Did you see this Drudge Report headline:  "RUSSIAN SUBS STALK UNDERSEA CABLES ... ATTACK COULD HALT ALL COMMUNICATIONS TO USA."

Here's the link to the original story:  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/26/world/europe/russian-presence-near-undersea-cables-concerns-us.html?_r=0

So, what are satellites for again?

Excellent question.

Another is, maybe this is just another US psyop to make sure we blame the Russians for the next false flag.

Russian submarines and spy ships are aggressively operating near the vital undersea cables that carry almost all global Internet communications, raising concerns among some American military and intelligence officials that the Russians might be planning to attack those lines in times of tension or conflict, according to The New York Times.

Just last month, the Russian spy ship Yantar, equipped with two self-propelled deep-sea submersible craft, cruised slowly off the East Coast of the United States on its way to Cuba — where one major cable lands near the American naval station at Guantanamo Bay. It was monitored constantly by American spy satellites, ships and planes. Navy officials said the Yantar and the submersible vehicles it can drop off its decks have the capability to cut cables miles down in the sea.

The newspaper quoted naval commanders and intelligence officials as saying they were monitoring significantly greater Russian activity along the cables' known routes from the North Sea to Northeast Asia and waters closer to the United States.

:lol_alpha: If they were going to cut the cables wouldn't the reporting be after the fact? The media likes their Russian scare stories like when Russian ships were off the coast of Texas this summer.

Russia shrugs off US anxiety over military satellite

"Luch" is used for a different class of Russian relay satellites which are in low-Earth orbit, he explained.

But the mysterious activity took place much higher - about 36,000km above the equator, in a type known as geosynchronous orbit (GEO).

"It's now parked next to another Intelsat satellite," he said.

When asked if it could have intercepted Intelsat data he said simply "I have no idea". But he added: "there was no danger of collision".
