They've also said the 5th ping is unrelated. They're running these 2 side by side on the scroll/marquee. 

My head is exploding from the cognitive dissonance.

I'm just hoping they find the thing sometime next week, so all these stories can die off already.

You are absolutely right.  I can't believe how much time and money has been expended on recovery efforts.  However, If I had a family member onboard I probably would like to know for sure what happened to them.

When I commented on CNN's web page about the stupid shiatload of hand-waiving coverage, I had someone "agree" with me and then write a screed about how the U.S. Military had forced the plane down and its being guarded in the desert.  I am not sure which desert, but it is a desert.

Kevin72: Where in the world is Diego Garcia?


Indian Ocean, just south of the Persian Gulf.  The British built a massive military base there, after relocating the few islanders who had been living there.  America then moved in there around the time of the first Gulf War.  It's just a big giant military base out in the middle of the ocean that serves as a forward staging area for British and American military operations in the Middle East, Central Asia, and western Africa.

Yup, and specifically, it's where the B-52s come from when we want to make the rubble bounce anywhere in Asia.

"We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometers

How much is that in miles?

"We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometers (miles)"

Sorry, you're out of luck. The History Channel will run "the mystery of flight MH370" shows for the rest of your life.

More specifically, that would be ("some kilometers" X .6) miles.

Really? I've been to Diego Garcia - it's pretty tiny. They've got like one measly airstrip - I can't see them staging a significant bombing campaign from there.

Then again, I was a submariner, I don't know shiat from shinola when it comes to airplanes and the associated logistics.

No such luck. As soon as they find it, then the new stories will start, all about what's on the black box recording. Then you just know all the new conspiracies will come out. This is the neverending story.

It isn't about finding the bodies. At this point I don't think you would want to find them honestly.

Its about the 777 being a widely used plane, that millions of people fly on every year, and not to mention one that shares some commonality with other planes. If there is a defect, it is in everyone's interest to figure out what the hell it was and prevent it from happening again.

They can set up a facebook page to see the non updates and the rest of us can go back to not seeing all the new noninformation about it
