    Offices used by France and Germany in the UN buildings have been discovered to be audio bugged, other offices were targeted as well, no-one is commenting on where they came from yet...

    I wonder who needed to hear what France and Germany were planning to do on the floor?

    This is getting bad. I really hope world war 3 does not start.

    There are some who say WW3 was the Cold War, and we are already in the middle of WW4.

    it was actually in EU offices. Not UN. i don't want to speculate. if they ever do find out who bugged the phones, i hope that nation faces strict consequenses.

    Sorry, EU not UN...

    As I said earlier , I've been in bed with flu most of the day, and it was on the radio, wondered why I couldn't find it.

    Some were blaming the US, though I must say that if we bugged anyone they probably would never find out.

    I'd heard about this some time ago.

    From what I understand, the equipment is too old to be ours. It more likely belongs to a hopeful member of the EU.

    However, this fact shouldn't overshadow the plan we had that got out where we considered using bugs for the elected members of the security council. In their homes.
