17. No, these days, they can just pick it up with the electronic version of a microphone

I don't know, but have to assume they have the same kind of "sorting" capabilities we do so they don't get overwhelmed with data, 99% of which they have no use for.

It's not really the eavesdropping that represents the biggest threat, but rather their willingness to do some serious physical disruption in the form of damaging or severing cables. They are like undersea oil pipelines--easy to blow up, but extremely complicated to repair or replace.
