Arrow Satellite IDs Ships That Cut Cables

Quote:
"Undersea telecom cable operator Reliance Globalcom was able to use satellite images to identify two ships that dropped anchor in the wrong place, damaging submarine cables and knocking Middle East nations offline in early February. The company used satellite images to study the movements of the two ships, and shared the information with officials in Dubai, who impounded the two vessels. The NANOG list has a discussion of where Reliance might have obtained satellite images to provide that level of detail. Google News links more coverage of the developments."

Lots of conspiracy theories going around, naturally. One of the more noticeable:


Quote:
Phase 1: Wait until ship stops near cable

Phase 2: Send stealth submarine to cut cable

Phase 3: Blame ship, produce satellite images for proof

Phase 4: Profit

Re: Satellite IDs Ships That Cut Cables

Well it is difficult not to be suspicious at times.

I actually think the level of coordination of the anti-Chinese protests is also very suspicous.

The other thing that is abundantly clear from the graphs that is there is massive and persistent intervention in favour of the dollar on the foreign exchanges. This is something no central bank has put their hand up to. The inevitable losses associated with this intervention will have to turn up on somebodies balance sheet sooner or later. That is assuming the Fed actually keep a record of how many times they print Washington's Head!
