Rense -

It seems as though things keep getting weirder and weirder. More cables have been cut in the Middle East/North African region since I posted about the first two occurrences last week. The original 2 were at first thought to have been cut by boat anchors, although now it is known there were no vessels traveling in that area during the time of the cuts. Although speculations of sabotage were denied by some officials last week it is advised that you take those implications with a grain of salt because 8-9 cables have now been reportedly cut in that same area. Now knowing that these cuts were not done by anchors and taking into account the shear number of actual cables that have reportedly been damaged or cut we can conclude that this is not a coincidence and that someone/something is behind this. Multiple telecommunications cables do not just happen to be accidentally cut or damaged within one week of each other all within the same geographical location.
