That is beyond disgusting. There's no justice at all here.

Political fallout in Malaysia from the disappearance of MH 370
Quote:
Malaysia’s governing elite has clung to power without interruption since independence from Britain almost six decades ago through a combination of tight control of information, intimidation of the opposition and, until recently, robust economic growth.

But worldwide bafflement at the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has challenged the country’s paternalistic political culture and exposed its coddled leaders to the withering judgments of critics from around the world.

Oh wait, they already did.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Who needs to speculate when you can just use a 'bomoh' (shaman/witch doctor).

Malaysian search efforts 'exceptional', says US Navy commander

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (March 12, Wed): The Malaysian government is doing an exceptional job organising the search-and-rescue (SAR) effort to find the missing Malaysia Airline airplane, says the United States Navy Seventh Fleet.

"I give them a lot of credit. They have done what I would call an exceptional job," said spokesperson Commander William Marks, in a recent interview with Sinosphere, the China blog of the New York Times.

Cmdr Marks said the SAR effort was a "very difficult, very challenging puzzle" as the search box that started closer to Vietnam got bigger with each hour that passed, particularly with the latest report that claimed the plane may have turned around.

"This is a very large area. We are talking hundreds of square kilometres. The good news is it's an international effort there are a lot of assets down there. The country of Malaysia is in the lead. They're the lead organisation, and they're doing a terrific job of organising all this. The last information I had, had about 40 different ships here, and over 30 aircraft," he said.

I find it difficult to imagine something that big could have flown across the country (Gulf of Thailand to Straits of Malacca) without raising any alarms from radar.

You can also take this — a blog post by someone claiming to be a former US navy officer — for what it's worth.

Ex-navy officer debunks conspiracies over flight 370
Quote:
By Jim Wright

(March 13, Thu)


Most military radar isn't concerned with commercial air traffic on standard routes flying at 30,000+ feet. The skies are full of jetliners. Most just appear as a contact on a tracking scope, watched briefly as they trundle along in a straight line across the sky, and are then ignored. Military people are concerned with threats.

Threats typically move in a ballistic trajectory, or a flat fast-powered arc, or much closer to the surface. Military radar records might be helpful in figuring out what happened, but unless Flight 370 was behaving like a threat while passing through somebody's radar envelope, it's unlikely that anybody would notice or bother to identify it.

Also military people charged with defending their airspace don't like showing people from other countries their radar systems, and for damned GOOD reasons, so it's going to take some time to get those records. It's going to be a while before a complete search those recordings can be done.

Yeah, but what about the ringing phones?

You ever call a cellphone that was turned off? Sometimes it goes straight to voicemail, sometimes it rings. You hear rings because the cellular network is looking for the phone and if the phone doesn't respond immediately the network doesn't know if the device is active, in an area of weak signal or limited connectivity or heavy congestion, roaming out of network, or turned off.

Some networks send you a ringtone while they look for the phone you're calling so you don't hang up. Other times you just get dead air. There's no standard, even in heavily regulated North America, and sure as hell not across the various countries of Asia.

Claiming that "ringing" cellphones mean the plane is or was still intact just means that you're ignorant about how the technology works.

As for the apparent confusion in the Malaysia government's media response...

Every single person on the planet in this information-saturated age should damned well know by now that initial reports are going to be conflicting, contradictory, confused, and just plain wrong. This ISN'T some big conspiracy, it is unfortunately the nature of the situation. It's perfectly normal and it happens all of the time and it always has and you know it.

The well-intentioned bomoh is making Malaysia a laughing stock. His antics have already spawned a whole load of parodies.

Unsurprisingly, Chinese netizens were not amused. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/artic...-track-missing

Whatever magic you are doing, do it in private.

What about NORAD.

After the 911 incident, many air-defence radars track flying objects trundling at a certain speed onto land, for the fear of it using commercial airliners as cruise missiles. That being said answers JokerD's post :

Now here is the problem : the planes are moving away from the land. ADRs ignore that kind of stuff. And to add to the mess, the Thai and Malaysians do not have as much money as us to buy the state-of-art high-powered radars that can scan across entire straits onto other islands.

You guys just don't know how is it in Vietnam. Months ago, there was this case of a woman died in a cosmetic surgery, and the doctor resposible for it threw the body away on Red River. Since then, so many so-called shamans and espers have tried to locate the body, but none has succeed. So this "bomoh" case is just in a bigger scale.

As I am well aware of but really....It's the same as Catholic ritual sessions for other lost victims elsewhere. All that reaction is simply unwarranted. The real problem is M'sia's not very transparent handling of the entire thing

PS: Does anyone know what it's saying?
The twitter message is,"Astro Awani did not even update that these three shamans have arrived at the White House hehehehe." As for the actual caption on the photo it says,"HAS ARRIVED AT THE WHITE HOUSE???"

Good intentioned, or it could also be publicity-intentioned...

I mean, he could do it in some other places than KLIA, or would that otherwise not work.

There are so many questions surrounding this incident that I don't know if the answers for all of them will come out any time soon.

I personally also would wait before this claim by Malaysian is verified by another source. They haven't been very good with this investigation thus far.

A news conference just concluded, the malaysian prime minister himself said that the devices were turned off deliberately, and then the plane diverted from its planned route. search in the south china sea has stopped since this was no accident and the plane continued flying for hours after the devices were turned off.

maybe the pilots were behind this...?

if not then its normal for the door to get unlocked if a pilot needs to pee or something, or when the stewards go in to deliver food for the pilots... im not sure with this plane, but from the small ones that ive flown, the lavatory was right beside the cockpit door, maybe someone was waiting for the perfect timing? or someone from the front rows was the culprit just waiting for the door to open before rushing in.
