The information, misinformation, and theories circulating about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 abound. This tale has all the makings of a Tom Clancy novel; international intrigue, likely soon or future terror, scores of passengers hanging in the balance, exotic locales, and the military might of many nations joined in the fray. Just like those great Tom Clancy novels, we're probably not going to know any answers until the last few paragraphs of the final chapter are written.
Having said that, I have some thoughts on the subject that I’ll share here; most of what I have to say has already been said one way or the other, but I think we should be considering all scenarios. Anyway, this is my two cents.
While I am still clinging to just a faint glimmer of optimism for the passengers, I am a logical thinker and a realist, so the pessimism outweighs the optimism for the following reasons.
My fraction of an ounce of optimism stems from the fact that by all accounts this aircraft continued flying for many hours after contact was lost and no sign of a crash has been discovered, which suggests to me that it had to land safely somewhere. That poses the question of where it could possibly have landed undetected when every sophisticated piece of detection hardware on the planet and in space would or at least should have been searching for it almost immediately after losing contact.
In light of the above, being undetected seems impossible to me, so I therefore believe that all the major world powers, (certainly every military) know exactly where the plane is. They may and may not know the fate of the passengers, as unlikely as that would be, but they definitely know about the plane. The bottom line is we are not being told anything resembling the truth, and there may be reasons for that which I cannot fathom at this time.
Of course, I’m speculating here, however, my pessimism outweighs my optimism because for starters, it looks like both of the pilots were muslims, and, excuse me, but there is just something about muslims and airplanes that don’t mix well in my mind. There is also no way such an undertaking was conceived on a whim just before the plane took off either, (i.e., a simple hijacking, which would be over by now). Indeed, I would suggest that this was many years in the planning, and it is very scary for me to think our normal channels of intel didn’t pick up on any of what must have been and must be very loud ‘chatter’ in terror circles. I also believe that it is very possible the masterminds may have restored and camouflaged one of the many remaining, abandoned, WWII and other airfields in the region just enough to maybe hide it in plain site; with a natural ‘hanger of brush’ to cover the plane.
So, continuing to speculate; it looks like this plane is now in the hands of some really bad guys, who may have decided to keep the passengers alive as hostages or not depending upon their end game. Certainly, the Assyrian ancestors responsible for such heinous terrorism have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to any clear thinking individual that they have no regard for life.
For sure though, there is no way in hell they intend to return it peacefully, and I can only imagine that they are plotting some very unimaginable stuff with the plane itself; and I dare say if they are sophisticated enough to pull off stealing a plane out of mid-air and making it disappear, they will likely do a great job of changing its appearance and arming it before using it for whatever nefarious purposes they have in mind.
Once disguised, it should be able to blend into any major controlled air space undetected long enough to close in on a target without ample time to mount an adequate defense. They may even have installed air traffic controllers years ago when it became ‘intolerant’ to not allow muslims access to high security jobs; those plants would now be part of whatever plan they unfold. Additionally, if they do keep the passengers alive, it would be just like them to have them on the plane as human shields. My best guess is that any such attack will very likely be another American target because they know our military has been severely weakened from within and we have an equally weak, anti-American, muslim sympathizing potus that would almost certainly not issue or allow a ‘shoot down’ order of a passenger laden commercial aircraft, no matter how disguised or how grave the threat. It is for just those reasons that I doubt they’ll try to hit Israel because of their strong air defenses, and their leadership would rightfully not hesitate to issue a ‘shoot down’ order when faced with such a choice. It may and should be a standing order anyway.
The bottom line here is this, I believe our enemies are getting ready to hit us with a very hard sucker punch that will make 9/11 look like a day in the park by comparison. This enemy is known to be very patient and to lay low when the heat is on, so they may very likely wait a good while until the sheeple get lulled back to sleep. Only time will tell.
