    Default Third undersea Internet cable damaged in Mideast

    http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...show_article=1

    A third undersea Internet cable has been damaged in the Middle East, adding to the disruption in online services after two other lines were cut earlier this week, the cable operating firm said.
    The Falcon cable was cut 56 kilometres (35 miles) from Dubai, between Oman and the United Arab Emirates, according to its owner, FLAG Telecom, which is part of India's Reliance Communications.

    The repair ship had been notified and was expected to arrive at the site in the next few days, the company said on its website.

    Flag Telecom owns another cable that was damaged off Egypt on Wednesday. A repair ship was expected to arrive by Tuesday to restore that cable and repairs were expected to take a week, the company said.

    The outages have disrupted business across the Middle East and South Asia, including in India, where businesses said it may take up to 15 days to return to normal.


    15 days = $$$millions lost. I think somebody got smart.

    If they attack the repair ship this may actually resemble a war.

    I was chatting to a buddy in Saudi tonight on messenger and sending files was incredibly slow.

    This may explain it I guess...........

    Default Conflicting Reports

    Some sources cite a ship's anchor as the cause of two of the four outtages:

    But others are keeping their tin foil hats on:

    Hard to believe this many down lines in so short of a time is a coincidence.

    Despite the lack of media coverage, the build-up for a war in the Gulf has continued and the probability of a US-led attack on Iran is quite high. Bush is convinced that if he doesn't confront Iran, then no one will. He also believes that if he doesn't militarily defend the dollar, then America's days as “the world's only superpower” will soon be over. The question is whether Bush will realize that America is already bogged down in two “unwinnable” conflicts or if he will “go with his gut” once again and lead us into a ruinous region-wide conflagration.
    Bullshit. Also Afghanistan is hardly "Unwinnable" and Iraq is in the best shape it's seen since we've been there. WE ARE NOT ATTACKING IRAN.

    Ian Brockwell, of the American Chronicle said, "On the assumption that the cables cut were no accident, we must ask ourselves who would do such a thing and why. Clearly Iran, who were most affected, would gain nothing from such an action and are perhaps the target of those responsible? . . . Maybe this is a prelude to an attack, or perhaps a test run for a future one?

    "Communication has always been an important factor in military action, and cutting these cables might affect Iran's ability to defend itself." (American Chronicle]
    Bullshit. We tap cables, not cut them. Terrorists in Pakistan use those cables for "Secure" comminucations which we can listen to. Also, there is just no way Bush could justify this kind of action in any way. Plus, US oil companies and companies like Haliburton are hurt by these cable cuts too.

    The media has tried to portray Bush's trip to the Middle East as a "peace mission," but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, three days after Bush left Jerusalem, Israel stepped-up its military operations in the occupied territories and resumed its merciless blockade of food, water and medicine to the 1.5 million people of the Gaza Strip. Bush must have green-lighted Israel's aggression or it would have been seen as an insult to the president of the United States.
    Fuck this douchebag and the anti-semetic horse he goose-stepped in to town on. Israel was responding to rocket attacks launched from Gaza. What Nazi fuckwad.
