hang on a minute...

A fourth cable has been cut in less than one week? Considering how many ships travel these waterways, the coincidence of all of these anchors being dropped directly on top of an undersea cable severing connections to the world wide web for entire regions (with some of the highest internet penetration rates in the world too) is a bit amazing. You'd think they would mark these things in the age of global positioning systems to avoid exactly this kind of thing. But hey, lighting can strike more than once i suppose...and there go all those Arabs with their silly conspiracy theories again... link
