>>27543577 China's the one who manufactures hardware for computers, and it's been proven that most processors, motherboards, and hard drives have backdoors built into them. (probably at the behest of the NSA) So I'd imagine they know everything that the U.S. knows.
>>27544267 It doesnt work that way. Despite what you learned watching swordfish.
All electronics used in even the most basic of information processing is checked a million times over for potential "backdoors" (or in reality, transmitters/black book stoorage/what have you).
However, what the US gathers in the middle east, they decrypt and trade for equivalent data on Russia from, say, Sweden. The western intelligence "chain" means that most participators get the intelligence that they want, and that those with great channels to raw data gets more than the ones incapable of say, decrypting ELINT data. If lithuania goes to great britain looking to trade encrypted ELINT, they get encrypted ELINT back.

Everyone was paranoid. Fuck you could live rest of your days in siberia just cause your neighbour didn't like you during certain eras.
