Cables Cables Cables

01 Feb

I’m sure by now you have heard all about the two undersea cables that have been cut causing outages in the Egypt and India. Well, a third has been cut completely cutting off internet in Iran.

I don’t know about you but I was suspicious when two where cut but three takes the metaphorical cake. Market watch one telecomm company is blaming tropical storms while another is blaming ship anchors, but I have to wonder just what is really going on here. Could this be an attack on the infrastructure of these countries (or a singe country and the others are just casualties of war)? If I were a deranged neocon who wanted to plunge my nation into and endless and un-winnable war with “terrorists” I would probably cut these cables to disrupt communications and cause confusion.

I really hope I’m wrong.
