Ships did not cut internet cables: Egypt

Not exactly a conspiracy nut but 4 cables cut at different times, different locations...

Two cables were damaged earlier this week in the Mediterranean sea and another off the coast of Dubai, causing widespread disruption to internet and international telephone services in Egypt, Gulf Arab states and South Asia. A fourth cable linking Qatar to the United Arab Emirates was damaged on Sunday causing yet more disruptions, telecommunication provider Qtel said.

Egypt's transport ministry said footage recorded by onshore video cameras of the location of the cables showed no maritime traffic in the area when the cables were damaged. "The ministry's maritime transport committee reviewed footage covering the period of 12 hours before and 12 hours after the cables were cut and no ships sailed the area," a statement said.

With the cables cut, one gets a feeling we are finally turning to an isolated island. But the internet connection is yet to be affected, I am not sure what all those cables were for.

There seems to be no explanation as to why this is happening. Four of them in three different places, there seems to be something into this.

I think I found the answer HERE [ufoevidence.org].

If aliens set up underwater bases at 36000 feet below the Pacific Ocean so as not to be detected then why do they decorate their craft in flashing blue and red lights? Or for that matter disguise them as flying cigars?

That's the genius of it. Put fancy decorations on it so anyone who sees it will be thought the fool for describing such a fanciful craft.

On second thought, maybe they're just the low-riders of the aliens. Nothing like a little bling to set one's ride apart from the rest.

It is not confirmed yet, but the reason behind all this seems to be power related. I can't imagine the cables burning inside that freezing sea water :)

My evil plot is to sever all the cables but one into the middle east, then tamper with the traffic carried on the last one to convince OPEC that the price of oil has fallen to $7 a barrel.

GM made me do it.

OK I did it.

Sorry but I needed the money from the sale of the scrap to renew my membership here.....

...Just got curious and went over to Slashdot, where there's a thread on this subject which in the usual rambling and semi-coherent way has coughed up a couple of better theories:
1. Part of a plan by a certain national security agency to splice a tap onto one or more major cables connecting the Middle East to the world, and/or
2. Part of a plan to temporarily redirect Middle East web/phone traffic through alternate connections, which presumably can already be monitored.

Yes it seems bizarre, and I don't think we're at the point yet where infowar is going to have that big an effect, but it does seem like SOMETHING is going on.

"The area is also marked on maps as a no-go zone..."

As opposed to a go-go zone? Groovy!

But a simple "don't dig here" sign would work

Conclusion:
this, we will find out in 50 or so years, when documents are unclassified IMO. A message was sent to someone.
