No crap. That's only if they're specifically watching YOU or something
you're connected to in some way. However, a large, vibrant Tor network
would greatly hinder 'roving wiretap' type passive intel gathering

Tor does not defend against such a threat model." that said, i think IPsec is a great idea in as many places as possible assuming your key distribution/exchange is well implemented.
