Internet Cables Cut, Outages From Egypt to Bangladesh

"India and Mideast struggle with Internet outages" International Herald Tribune (January 31, 2008)

Two undersea cables, north of Egypt, got cut yesterday. Users from Egypt to Bangladesh lost their Internet connections. Indian companies are trying to find out how many service calls got lost in the process.

I think this article shows how tightly interconnected we are, these days.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
