    I suppose it could be considered an open passage even for a Russian or any other nations subs, I wonder if the leinholder [ whoever currently ” rules the roost ” ] charges anything to transit the Canal…
    Aware that genius Carter ceded the Canal back to Panama by some chicanery, who pays who to maintain and operate the Canal anymore ??
