I guess we will have to wait and see.


Claiming that Putin is desperate or vice verse is saying something similar about the Iranian government.


So again care to suggest what sort of leader should the Russian have? Pro American One as usual? the fact your always defending the Ukrainian oligarch whose in Charge now?

A good thread (got through most of it already) and thank you!
On the other side-- God help us the Iron Curtain is being replaced
with tinfoil. I imagine if this is actually attempted it'll vindicate
every pundit of Russian Fed since '92. Same hammer, different
sicko.

So long as theres a way for a packet to get to its destination the net will survive so unless they go around actually chopping cables


This post reminds of a great story / rumour.

The university I attended here in the UK provides super-high-speed internet to the UK government. Basically the whole civilian UK government runs off internet supplied by this uni. This was amazing for us, btw - we had internet in our accommodation back in 2001 that was significantly faster than my fibre optic connection even now. Astonishing really...

Anyhow, it's widely rumoured that this service has a deep underground physical kill switch beneath the building where this service is hosted - a single cable about three times the thickness of a human leg with what's essentially a guillotine above it. Reputedly it's possible to physically sever the UK's governmental data connection in the event of an emergency.

It sounds silly, but it probably isn't that far fetched that there's a physical fail-safe mechanism.

physical fail-safe mechanism. has always been the Standard of Excellence,, in the Trades.

"If it shall fail it shall fail in accordance with B129 of the Code,,IN A SAFE manner.
period.
no grey area,,,end of discussion.

Whether that was carried over into certain other Trades,, is pure ,,yes/no/maybe.,,
if then,,is not a maybe.

Fail Safe.

So Putin is An dictator? yeah sure he is, according to your news outlets anyone that disagrees with America's domination (World occupation) is an dictator.


Yeah duh, yes he is if he switches off the internet. He won't have to worry about all those mean news outlets after that.

He doesn`t use the internet so he`s not reading it.

He doens`t switch of the internet if it`s not needed, it would lead to protest if he does. It`s only about the option in dire need.

Any leader that thinks they won't be assassinated on the spot for such a stupid move, is entirely deluded. Seriously - how cocky and stupid are these politicians actually getting?

No, he tried to. Turkey is a cosmopolitan and modern society, as much as it is a historic and ancient one. They aren't silly and backwards and any real attempt there to hide them from the world would be met with decent resistance.

JANET is the academic network and its purely for the academic stuff and probably peers at some points with the UK governments web infrastructure but i can remember in the late 1990's the uni i worked for had a cross site link that was easily 500 Mb/sec and there was options to increase it should it be needed and was pushing out 100Mb/sec to pretty much the desktop and i think they had a JANET link of 152 Mb/sec to the rest of the network as well

I know of the UK's governmental network a while back and it's nowhere near as fancy as that, generally its a self contained network with multiple points of exposure and a 3 leg depth cable....you could probably power half of england with such a cable, probably certain sites such as those that deal in top secret data have such cut offs but the council i worked for didn't and i can remember checking out resiliency and there was multiple ways to get out

Most are not even on the internet it seems.

They worked around twitter, but did they also do that for YouTube ?

I don't know of any living there that can't access youtube, I'd say that I asked only 5 or 6 but they would likely have a reasonably wide network and would have mentioned to me if anyone they knew had been having issues with youtube.

The blockades have already been lifted now to my knowledge.

The Kremlin is just sacred of what has happened in other countries, so I think they will only actual be using it when they really think it`s needed. They probably know when they do it now, it will only cause uproar. And why do it, most Russians seem to have their heads straight about what is happening.

Finally Russia is catching up with US as to having a "kill switch."


Except that we don't, but it is fun to speculate isn't it?


Yes we actually do! We have all the Internet Servers here. The ones that control it for the most part. That is why the UN is always trying to wrestle control of it from us. The NSA could have a hard time shutting down all in the U.S. but going out will be no problem for them.

Actually they would be able to shut down all in the states pretty dam fast since all the hubs run via cable companies. One order from Oslama and its all getting shut down.

Its not far fetched. There are only four lines running out of the U.S. for the net and phone, two on either coast. Across the ocean per say, two more to Mexico. As you will see, the U.S. feeds all nations with the net. Satellite of course but they can kill those anytime. The U.S. Government has their own phone and internet for nuclear war buried deep underground and the hardends are in bunkers deep as-well. Nothing goes out of the country for the military but on their own satellites.
