A fourth undersea cable cut

I have no idea what’s going on, but on Wednesday two undersea cables were cut, and another was cut on Friday.  Today I found out that “A fourth cable linking Qatar to the United Arab Emirates was damaged on Sunday causing yet more disruptions.” On top of that, they are reporting that no ships were near the area of the first two cables, so the idea that boat anchors cut the cables is out of the question.  The end result is that a lot of areas in the middle east have little to no internet access.  Whether its a conspiracy/coincidence/terrorism/government attack/swamp gas I have no idea, but its pretty weird nonetheless.  I guess we’ll find out on Tuesday, when a ship pulls up to fix (and see what happened to) the original two cables.
