PNAC & Middle East Cable Cuts

What are the odds that two cables routing internet traffic through the Middle East would break, while a third would snap competely, all in a matter of days? That's exactly what happened, according to news reports. It will be days before crews reach the fractured cables and up to ten days afterwards to complete repairs. Thus many Middle Eastern countries will have limited internet access, placing them at a strategic disadvantage. At least that's the belief of the Project for the New American Century, which called the internet a key part of the new global commons. Cyberspace and access to outer space must be controlled by the United States, the only benevolent super power. Three members of the committee managing the Iranian nuclear situtation are PNAC'ers. Paul Wolfowitz, the architect of the Iraq war, is the committee chairman.

I shared my theory that Israel will attack Iran's nuclear facilities with Uncle Sam standing strong and ready to contain any blowback. I believe it will happen after the two Supers, the Super Bowl and Super Tuesday. This way George W. can say he's not impacting the Presidential primary process. It appears Middle East internet access will be disrupted until February 15th. Might Prime Minister Olmert and President Bush want to get their war on during a time of decreased communications? Mr. Ahmadinejad, I think George and Ehud have a Valentine's gift for you. Time will tell...
