Syria off line


Recommended Posts

Yes, very interesting. I like how the state blamed it on a "cable cut" by the enemy -- killing two birds with one stone by cutting off info to and from the dissidents and then blaming the act on them.

A cable cut should not completely cut off a properly-designed network, but if one party (the state) holds all the connectivity, then they can do what they want with it. Score one for the libertarians among us (of which I may be one in this narrow instance) who say that the networks should be private and not state-run.
