As I posted earlier, last week three undersea cables were cut in three consecutive days.
A total of five cables being operated by two submarine cable operators have been damaged with a fault in each. These are SeaMeWe-4 (South East Asia-Middle East-Western Europe-4) near Penang, Malaysia, the FLAG Europe-Asia near Alexandria, FLAG near the Dubai coast, FALCON near Bandar Abbas in Iran and SeaMeWe-4, also near Alexandria.
Of course, as Wretchard points out, the Jews are being blamed because they weren’t affected. The real reason they weren’t affected is that Israel uses a different cable since other Middle East countries refused to share theirs.
Never mind that undersea cable damage is an everyday thing.
