    Listening to DZMM earlier. It was quoting foreign news about international search, and they say they are searching the "SOUTH CHINA SEA". Then the reporter says Phil Govt is searching the "WEST PHILIPPINE SEA".

    This is what I was talking about before.. NoyNoy govt confusing international convention by insisting on using WEST PHIL SEA while the rest of the world still uses the SCS monicker. Even Philippine Broadcasters get confused.

    Do a Google News search on South China Sea and you will get over 6,000 News source results.

    Do a West Philippine Sea search and you only get a handful of results and nothing that pertains to the missing malaysian plane.

    Malaysia's state news agency quoted Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as saying the two passengers using the stolen European passports were of Asian appearance, and criticizing border officials who let them through.

    "I am still perturbed. Can't these immigration officials think? Italian and Austrian but with Asian faces," he was quoted as saying late on Sunday.

    In September 2012, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III signed Administrative Order No. 29, mandating that all government agencies use the name "West Philippine Sea" to refer to the parts of the South China Sea within the Philippines' exclusive economic zone, and tasked the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) to use the name in official maps

    although it's not uncommon it's possible for an asian to have an italian/austrian name...

    the problem with the MY's immigration is that they didn't check against the database of the stolen passports..

    If Malaysia Airways and all airlines worldwide were able to check the passport details of prospective passengers against Interpols's database, then we would not have to speculate whether stolen passports were used by terrorists to board MH 370. We would know that stolen passports were not used by any of the passengers to board that flight,” Noble said

    ^ still, asians with western name must have at least some features of a westerner. If it is the typical asian look, then we have a problem with IOs process of screening passengers.


    Anyway, if it is indeed the users of italian and austrian passports looks like Asian and buying&selling of stolen passport in Thailand is not uncommon, it is also possible those are just asians trying to go to europe the easy way maybe for hope of an employment.

    theory of terrorism weakens.

    pag di talaga nakita yan baka time slip

    Ang importante dyan makita yung body ng plane.. Mababaliw ka talaga pag di mo makita at least yung wreckage (most especially kung relative ka ng mga passengers)...

    Ang valid argument kasi at this point, walang kwenta ang lahat ng available technologies sa paghahanap ng nawawalang eroplano..

    pwede kaya military mishap ito.. diba masyado active ang china sa pambubully nila sa parte na yan ng SCS/WPS?

    ang lumalabas na balita kasi ngayon eh nag-disintegrate daw ang plane in the air..

    surface-to-air missile are known to shred planes..

    ^pero kahit paano may debris pa rin yan like fragments ng eroplano, luggages and human body parts, 35000ft is not "outer space" enough para madisintegrate sa atmosphere yung debris unless anti-matter yung pinangtesting sa MAS plane..

    teka... di kaya?

Kaya siguro walang distress call.

    Based on what I've learned, ang mga Russian daw nagpasimula na ganito (correct me if im wrong). So possibly they could do this to divert the public's attention from what is happening in Ukraine?

    Pagbigyan niyo na ako, we are all free to speculate.
    here is another conspiracy theory:

    two top spies wants to call it quits but their handlers will only allow it if they are dead.

    so ...... they staged a plane crash which will cover up their retirement. it is doubtful that the recovery team could fully account a complete body count because of the unpredictable conditions.

    the Vietnamese calls the South China Sea as the EAST SEA. Filipinos calls the South China Sea as the West Philippine Sea.

    Missile downed Malaysia Airlines jet? Follows near miss by North Korean rocket last week
    By Aaron Klein
    Posted on March 9, 2014 at 2:42 PM EST


    TEL AVIV — Just eight days after a terrorist attack in the city of Kunming dubbed “China’s September 11th,” a Malaysia Airlines flight carrying mostly Chinese passengers disappeared over the South China Sea.

    While the international probe is in its early stages and questions are being raised about the prospect of terrorism, investigators would be wise to thoroughly examine the possibility of a missile attack in light of recent information about the global proliferation of such projectiles capable of downing civilian airliners.

    Further, China has issued a series of warnings about North Korean missiles, including one that crossed paths with a Chinese airliner carrying 220 people just last week.

    On Friday, China complained to North Korea when one of its missiles came dangerously close to a civilian jet last Tuesday. The airplane had departed Tokyo’s Narita airport en route to the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang.

    One day earlier, South Korea’s defense ministry released a statement saying the Chinese civilian plane had “passed as the ballistic missile (from North Korea) was in the course of descending.”

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters, “On this issue, we have already contacted the North Korean side to convey our deep concern.”

    “If any country is to hold training or exercises, it should take measures in accordance with international practice to ensure the safety of civil [facilities] in relevant airspace and maritime space,” said Qin.

    Qin said the jet was flying over international waters at an altitude of 10,000 meters, or 32,800 feet.

    “The rocket could have hit the plane on its way down,” he said. “North Korea had not given any warning. It was an unexpected and immoral act that goes against international norms.”

    One week earlier, North Korea reportedly test-fired two short range missiles into the sea.

    The Malaysian Airlines flight reportedly lost contact with air traffic controllers some 2 hours after departing Kuala Lumpur, when the plane was about one third of the way into the trip.

    Vietnamese searchers said they found possible aircraft debris, including part of a door, that could be from the missing flight. Those fragments were reportedly located about 65 miles south-southwest of Vietnam’s Tho Chu island. The distance from that area to North Korea is about 2,600 miles.

    North Korean missile capabilities are said to include the Musadan missile, with a range of about 2,485 miles; the 4,000-mile range Taepodong-2; and a claimed long-range UNHA-3 missile. None of those missiles were reportedly tested in public.

    In January, former CIA Director David Petraeus warned of a “nightmare” scenario in which the proliferation of missiles could provide terrorists the ability to shoot down passenger airplanes.

    The largest terrorist looting of Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS reportedly took place immediately after the U.S.-NATO military campaign that helped to end Moammar Gadhafi’s rule in Libya.

    Gadhafi had hoarded Africa’s biggest known reserve of MANPADS, with his stock said to number between 15,000 and 20,000. Many of the missiles were stolen by militias fighting in Libya, including those backed by the U.S. their anti-Gadhafi efforts.

    Last week there were unverified claims some MANPADS went missing in Ukraine.

    Last April, the United Nations released a report revealing that weapons from Libya to extremists were proliferating at an “alarming rate,” fueling conflicts in Mali, Syria, Gaza and elsewhere.

    Most MANPADS are designed to down a low-flying aircraft. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, however, reportedly disappeared from radar while flying at cruising altitude in fine weather.

    The details surrounding the fate of the Malaysia Airlines flight could take months or even years to fully emerge. While it is too early to jump to conclusions and the possibilities will evolve along with the investigation, some reports about the flight are technically consistent with a potential missile strike.

    Reuters has exclusively quoted a senior source inside the probe saying they were narrowing the focus of the investigation to the possibility the aircraft disintegrated mid-flight.

    Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told reporters the airline had no indication of any distress signal from the pilot, with CBS News reporting this suggested “that whatever happened to the plane occurred quickly and possibly catastrophically.

    Other reports say radar tracking the flight indicated the pilot may have turned back from its path to Beijing before disappearing. It was unclear how quickly the airplane did an about face or why the pilot may have decided to reverse course.

    Meanwhile, international intelligence agencies have joined the investigation amid news that two passengers boarded the jet using stolen passports, raising terrorism concerns.

    ‘Nightmare’ threat targets passenger aircraft

    At a conference in Tel Aviv in January, Petraeus warned of a “nightmare” scenario in which missile proliferation could provide terrorists the capability to shoot down a civilian airliner.

    Petraeus was speaking at the annual conference of the Institute for National Security Studies, a think-tank at Tel Aviv University.

    He referred to a video posted on YouTube by the Sinai-based Ansar Jerusalem jihadist group, which claimed it had fired a surface-to-air missile at an Egyptian helicopter.

    “I mean, shooting down a helicopter with an apparent shoulder-fired missile is a big deal,” Petraeus said.

    “As you know, that was always our worst nightmare, that a civilian airliner would be shot down by one. Which is why we were so concerned when they moved around,” he said.

    The MANPADS didn’t just move around. Thousands were looted when Gadhafi’s reserves were unprotected following the NATO campaign there in 2011.

    At the time, CBS News reported the U.S. was unable to secure “thousands” of MANPADS.

    CBS quoted a “well-placed source” divulging that hundreds of missiles were tracked going to the group Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, AQIM, the al-Qaida franchise based in Algeria that is now considered to be one of the gravest threats to the U.S.

    If it crashes into the vast ocean, I don't think a month of searching is sufficient. Air France crashed into Atlantic Ocean took 2 years to recover the evidence.

    As for the stolen passports, I hope all airlines are now checking the name of these 2 impostors for the past 6 months from their database.

    It's just gotten weirder.

    Reports say the oil slick analysis is not jet fuel.
    Floating yellow debris initially thought to be a raft, is not.

    Where the hell is that plane?

    again, there would be debris if it was a missile explosion. plus, the last NKorean rocket was only able to reach the Philippines.

    the Gulf of Thailand is farther.

    Official: Malaysian Jet May Have Disintegrated.
    .....
    A senior source involved in preliminary investigations in Malaysia said the failure to find any debris indicated the plane may have broken up mid-flight, which could disperse wreckage over a very wide area.

    "The fact that we are unable to find any debris so far appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet," said the source.
    ......
    Still, it is incomprehensible that not a single piece of non-metallic items that could float is found. They maybe scattered at a wide area but currents tend to "accumulate" them into floating streaks of debris. There has to be something that will show the plane and passengers existed! Nothing vanishes that way without any trace.
