Islamists go for the easy target

For a few days, I grudgingly accepted the story about a ship's anchor accidentally cutting a transoceanic cable that provided internet service to Egypt and throughout the Middle East.

Seemed reasonable.

The web speed around the M.E. decreased significantly and the story was it would take a few weeks to fix it.

But now I'm pretty much convinced my first instincts were right.

Because now they're up to THREE cables cut, all within the past couple of weeks.

Islamists always go for the easiest target. Nothing like bottlenecking that dastardly Western sensuality in the cable, far at sea with nobody there to shoot at you.
