I can't wait to hear how some people will claim that he was a terrorist and this is a cover-up.

I am starting to believe this was a hijacking.  These two Iranians were trying to travel to Europe for asylum.  They could not get the European flight they wanted so they took a Beijing flight.

After they were airborne it is possible they took control of the aircraft and forced the pilots to change course to the west, switch off the transponders and radios, and reduced altitude.  If you look at the military radar reports this looks like what they saw.  Once the aircraft was below the radar threshold they could not be tracked anymore.

I believe the aircraft ran out of fuel and crashed in the Indian Ocean.  We may never know for sure.

Hell he didn't. Peter, Paul & Mary had the big hit with it, but he also recorded it.
What with his having written it, that's not surprising.

Well, I've heard enough!   :Let's all join the Marines and attack Iran ASAP!   To prove that I'm a gentleman, in addition to being a Teahadist hawk, I'll let you charge those Iranian machine guns first.  After you.

Maybe the Iranians exploded prematurely in their underwear, they couldn't hold it until Europe.

That was Sean Hannity's take last night.

Iran --> [possibly others] --> Thailand --> Malaysia --> Denmark --> Netherlands --> Germany
Now that's an elaborate asylum seeking plan. Funny how these refugees only settle for the best with Germany having the strongest economy at the moment.
