    Default 8 undersea cables cut.

    How many cables have now been cut? The reports are confusing. This article catalogs the different reports from the world's medja, and concludes that as many as eight different cables have now been cut:

    1) one off of Marseille, France

    2) two off of Alexandria, Egypt

    3) one off of Dubai, in the Persian Gulf

    4) one off of Bandar Abbas, Iran in the Persian Gulf

    5) one between Qatar and the UAE, in the Persian Gulf

    6) one in the Suez, Egypt

    7) one near Penang, Malaysia

    8) initially unreported cable cut on 23 January 2008 (Persian Gulf?)

    I was reading an article on www.dailytech.com last night saying that 5 cables were cut. Cutting communications..... Could this be part of a plan to strike on Iran?

    Assume it's not normal for so many under sea cables to be cut ... as for the conspiracy theories! someone must be doing it, 5 or 8 or how many there are can't all be coincidences.
    The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites

    2 or more were knocked out at one point by a power outtage depending on what random unverifiable blogger you believe.

    The balance seem to be made up by people assuming a link is down because they can't contact a cetain machine or network equipment.

    There is not one credible or authoritive source listed on this thread!

    maybe they've become expert sub aqua jihadists having become so accustomed to being waterboarded.
