Anybody Feel a National Security Threat Coming On?

CNN reports that a third undersea cable has been cut, this time off Dubai. I don't want to be alarmist but is anybody considering that this may be the beginning of a cyber-attack? And if it's not terrorism or state-sponsored obstreperousness, how long will it be before the terrorists realize how easy it is to do this?

Note how easy it would be to isolate the Middle East and Southwest Asia from the rest of the world? Who might find that desirable? Also note this, reported by an Instapundit reader. The referenced Belmont Club post is also worth reading.

One could make the case that this is rising above the level of mere coincidence.
