The cut cables. Internet as weapon.

From John Dvorak at MarketWatch (“an unlikely source of tinfoil” says Peak Energy)

The cut cables
— originally blamed on ships dragging anchors — look more like a ploy by some intelligence agency to disrupt Iranian commerce, specifically an emerging oil bourse that the Iranians have been quietly establishing and hoped to roll out fully in the next 60 days.


  1. What’s that old saying? Something like once you’ve eliminated the impossibilities you’re left with merely improbabilities.

    The answer is never the answer. What’s really interesting is the mystery.

  2. Update: Chinese Internet cut: Damage to an undersea cable has cut millions of Chinese off from the internet, and the problem could take weeks to fix.

    Are the Chinese and those of the Middle East being cut off from the rest of the world, or is the West (specifically the US) actually being cut off from them? tb
