Total internet blackout in Syria

Syria currently has a nationwide internet blackout. This news follows other disturbing trends; such as the UN getting involved with regulating the internet.

Syria has gone through partial internet disruption, but a 100 per cent blackout is unprecedented.


Syrian state TV denied the blackout was nationwide. It said the outage was cause by a technical failure, only affected some provinces and that technicians were trying to fix the problem. The Syrian Information Ministry blamed "terrorists" for the outage, as reported by the broadcaster.


The shutdown comes amidst reports of intense fighting in the country’s capital, Damascus. The fighting has reportedly grounded all the flights in the international airport.


So what is going on in Syria right now is anybody's guess.. Is this what Assange was talking about when he said the internet could free us or enslave us?

Not really, there are a lot of eyes on the ground there and other communications systems that were provided by teh west that allow them to report the events to the rest of the world.

for a quick rundown on the last 24 hours.

Seems I broke this one. Sorry posting from iPad while playing Dishonoured and drinking Little Creatures Pale Ale is not good. If one of you kind nerds would be so good as to help a time traveller out it would be appreciated.

They need to do a world wide mobile communications blackout (not hard line) to teach ignorant f**** to get off facebook for 5 minutes. I can't believe how many people stand there talking to you, while posting s*** on facebook. Then you ask them a question and they're like oh what? sorry, my friend just posted cats. wanna see?

Maybe they finally upgraded all their OSs but the latest one they could afford was WindowsME.
