i am sorry but this is nothing that has not been mentioned in previous posts maybe three days ago when the radar reports first popped up

or even earlier when people realized the transponder was turned off and military radar(passive) indicated a turn

no matter how much some countries may hate the us sometimes there are somethings they just cant handle dont want to admit and they really need us to do things like investigate an aircrash/possible hijacking


now the malay government and airline have opened themselves up to massive lawsuits for the delay that if they had asked for help sooner they might find survivors

i can hear the ambulance chasers already......a chance to sue a foreign government for wrongful death and what about the company that lost 20 employees

Hey, they bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into.

Flying waypoint to waypoint is old school navigation.  i.e. not something a terrorist is likely to know a damned thing about.

Here's a thought:  Did the pilot have a family?  Are they all accounted for?  Imagine a phone call "We have your daughter.  If you tell anyone, she dies.  Now here's what you're going to do:  You're going to divert this plane and land it here."

That Malaysian airlines denier jackass needs to be replaced.

When you have millions of dollars worth of payroll and equipment telling you that other devices were broadcasting, you shut the F up and listen.  And agree.

I know by law Malaysia is responsible for invistsgating. But are they allowed to ask another agency to invistsgate because they don't have the resources?

yes any foreign government has the ability to request help from the us in investigating a crash.  In the case of a us citizen killed in a terrorist attack or suspected terrorist attack the fbi would be able to investigate with technical assistance from the ntsb.

i believe that any foreign government can request assistance from the us in the event of disaster at least humanitarian assistance.  i would not be surprised if the us is sending other ships to the new search area like subs for the sonar and a hospital ship or other ship that could do forensic investigations during a mass casualty incident

think about all the hurricanes typhoons and earthquakes like the one in the Philippines recently

There is no proof whatsoever these "passengers" existed except for the two Iranians. Its a CIA plot to help them disappear by claiming a plane with them went down. But have we seen anyone's birth certificates? No.

Occam's razor is just right out the window at this point.  Simplest explanation would be it suffered a catastrophic failure and went down when radar contact was initially lost.  That does not appear to be the case.  It's hard to image at this point it's anything other than foul play.  But even still, where is the ransom demand?  Did it in fact crash?  I haven't a clue at this point.

It's the first time China's ever heard of the Andaman Islands, too.  Plus, they just claimed that the islands have always been Chinese territory.
 
2014-03-14 08:42:07 AM  
Damn, if those poor bastards had the misfortune to crash land on or just off of North Sentinel island (part of the Andaman Island chain), the surviving passenger and crew have either been stabbed to death or eaten by the local tribesmen.

That Pandit guy mentioned in the article wrote a book ('The Sentinelese'), short but fascinating. Unfortunately also a biatch to find.

<i>Other unintentional encounters include on August 2, 1981,a Hong Kong freighter navigating the choppy waters of the Bay of Bengal ran aground on a submerged coral reef. The ship, called the Primrose, was hopelessly stuck. The crew stayed on their boat for a few days, when the saw native people advancing towards their ship, armed with spears, bows and arrows .The captain made a distress call via radio and the crew were airlifted to safety by helicopter.

The last recorded contact with the Sentinelese was in 2006, when the Sentinelese archers killed two fishermen who were fishing illegally within range of the island. The archers later drove off, with a hail of arrows, the helicopter that was sent to retrieve the bodies.</i>

Hard. Core.

Occam's razor doesn't say the simplest explanation is preferred. It says the simplest explanation that fits all the facts is preferred. For example, foul play doesn't require many assumptions to fit this situation. Langoliers or other alien abduction requires a big assumption that extraterrestrials or supernatural beings have reached Earth. We should prefer foul play as an explanation until it no longer fits the situation.

I believe that the Malaysian authorities are closely monitoring Fark for crackpot theories they can use in their official announcements.  I surprised that they haven't used the "maybe it's still at the gate, one, yet.

I'm not sure about the NK angle, but I wouldnt bet a wooden nickle against this bird turning up in Burma.

Probably the next we hear about it is when serial numbers start turning up on the spare parts market.

How come you never see travel brochures for North Sentinel Island?  Sounds just like the type of place for people, who think taking hiking trips on the Iran-Iraq border is a good idea.

They probably wouldn't have gotten the chance to kill them if it "landed" there.  Island's 100% forested; even if you bring a 777 down for a "perfect" landing, running into a bunch of trees at speed would be slightly better than crashing into a brick wall, but not by much.

Well, the next helicopter they send, should be a military one, with a 20mm Vulcan gun.  That would be perfect to give the old Sentinelese archers a taste of the 21st century.  Then, we'll see how "hard core" the survivors are.
