    I think the plane was flown to another location. But it was being flown by a 27 year old Muslim? DUMB. Dumber are the passengers who boarded the flight.

    The question is, what/who was on that plane which would make it important enough to hijack it?

    True and why did not one person with a cell phone on the plane say something . They made calls during 911 ?

    During 9/11, they were flying over populated areas and close enough to the cell towers to make calls.

    Today the Malays released more radar info--today, weeks after the plane was lost

    It makes one wonder what else they are not releasing--the chinese are wondering as well

    Seems that one of the passengers was a uyghur=the chinese say he was-the malays say he was a non uyghur

    another article on it:
    http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/61928

    I don't understand why anyone would fly the plane south-there is nothing there, and if it was a deliberate destroy mission by whomever, why fly for over 7hrs before destroying the plane?

    Looks like someone is up late .. yongjin.

    Uyghurs on an ill-fated plane ride. I wonder what would happen if a pirated plane tried to enter Chinese airspace. By the sounds of all those Malaysian names, it appears there is a very large Muslim population base in their country.

    To me at least, a plane making it all the way to where the wreckage might be bobbing around in the South Indian Sea just does not seem logical, if not improbable. Especially with Australian radar capabilities, or even the naval boats that is out in force patrolling the waters North of Australia.

    Officials Say Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane 'Ended in the Southern Indian Ocean'

    New satellite data reveals that missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 "ended" its journey in a "remote location" of the southern Indian Ocean, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said today.

    "This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean," a somber Razak said during a media briefing.

    Yes indeed, nearly the entire population of Malays and Indonesia are Muslim--though they re probably the most "mellow" muslims around

    The 200 or so Han chinese on board would be a juicy target for the uygurs-also muslims. If they did it, they would be criticized but then say that the dead Muslims on board are now "martyrs"

    As was stated in the article I linked to, the Chinese Martyrs Brigade (the Uyghur militants) did claim responsibility for this event--however the Malays say the claim is not believable--apparently since it came via email. That together with the Chinese saying there was a Uyghur on board- who they suspect of having been abroad to attend flight school- that the Malays also deny

    And then there is the known fact that a couple of yrs ago the CMB did attempt to hijack a domestic chinese flight-they were overcome by the passengers.

    As they showed with their attack on the train station-their only goal is to effect mass casualties on Chinese.

    Where the plane wrecked really doesn't matter-what matters is why/how it got where it did--if it was an attack-did the hijacker deliberately take the plane so remote to ensure that no possible survivor would be rescued?

    Of course we may never know

    Being a Second World War buff you would think that I would of remembered that Viet Nam is south of China, and that there was no way that the Chinese Air Force could accidentally shoot down a Malaysian plane, with the Chinese saying, " I see nothing. Know nothing! So go away."

    What would the Japanese have to gain from this? When was the last time you heard of Japan doing ANYTHING in the way of hijacking, terrorism, political assassination, etc? Only the Islamic groups do these things. China wouldnt have anything to gain either.

    He was just being sardonic given my dislike of the Japanese

    HOWEVER=one COULD argue though, that, if Uygurs were to blame-THEN the Japs could be held partially responsible

    If they had not invaded China then the ChiCOMS would have likely been defeated by the nationalists Chinese with western help

    Then the ChiCOMS would have never had annexed Xinjiang -or Tibet for that matter--the nationalists Chinese didn't have territorial designs-they just wanted to solidify power and modernise the China they had

    So, now that SHAVED has made me consider it--then yes-I blame the Japanese :anim_59:
