Yes and no.  

There's been quite a bit of exaggerated (and unhelpful, IMHO) hype around this entire episode from the outset; by the same token, the attacks did produce non-inconsiderable disruptive collateral effects in EMEA and APAC for various intervals, which would not likely be observed by an American sitting in his home in America watching online American content and accessing American applications and services hosted on American servers located in American IDCs in America.

Some folks don't seem to grasp the whole 'global' notion of the Internet, and the facet that not everyone who uses or does something on the Internet resides in America.
