Internet For Oil
It appears that the west has finally discovered a way to negotiate for lower Middle East oil prices. Recently, there have been at least three cut undersea internet cables which have disrupted service across the Middle East and South Asia.
Flag Telecom reported that a repair ship would arrive in the next few days to restore the cable. The repairs should take about a week.
This does raise the question, does the west have leverage over the oil rich Middle East countries after all? I’m thinking Internet for Oil. Consider the possibilities.
