The only logical conclusion is that the plane was accidentally shot down during a USA-Thai Joint Strike Fighter exercise occurring in the same area at the same time.
This truth is being covered up for reasons I will explain below.
Accidental shoot-downs happen. On 3 July 1988 the USS Vincennes destroyed Iran Air Flight 655 (290 people murdered).
On 17 July 1996 a missile destroyed TWA Flight 800 (230 people murdered).
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is the only disappearance of a large airliner since a Varig Brazilian Airlines cargo jet vanished on 30 Jan 1979. The Varig cargo jet (a Boeing 707) departed from Tokyo en route to Rio de Janiero, with a planned stop in Los Angeles. A half hour after leaving Tokyo, it lost radio contact and disappeared 200 km (124 miles) east of Japan. It was never found. This is understandable, since the cargo plane vanished directly over the Japan Trench, which is 21,000 feet deep. That’s over five times the mean depth of the South China Sea, where MH370 was shot down.
The MH370 disaster is being covered up because South China Sea is one of the most sensitive areas in the world. It involves myriad territorial disputes between nine different nations, and is believed to hold huge oil and gas reserves beneath its seabed.
The area is crucial to the Western naval encirclement of China. The American, French, Japanese, South Korean, and Australian navies all patrol there. German naval ships will soon arrive as well.
The South China Sea also has a third of the entire world’s shipping, plus a third of the entire world’s marine biodiversity. Over-fishing has caused much tension between local nations, who are trying to assert fishing bans.
In such a sensitive and highly contested area, the USA and NATO would suffer politically if it came out that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was accidentally shot down in the South China Sea. Hence we hear nonsense about the plane having done an about-face and heading out to the Indian Ocean. No proof of this has ever been provided by anyone.
The crux of the matter
The South China Sea is a geopolitical flashpoint. It is the zone of the Western Empire’s “pivot to Asia” (a phrase coined by Queen Hillary). What’s at stake is the future of Asia, as well as the East-West balance of power. Hence the Western Empire cannot afford the political cost of admitting the truth.
More specifically, China and the Philippines have ratified the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which the USA refuses to sign. China, India Brazil, Vietnam and Malaysia have been struggling to modify the UNCLOS so that foreign warships cannot enter those nations’ Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) without permission.
In most cases a nation’s EEZ extends up to 200 nautical miles (230 statute miles) from the nation’s coast. If two or more zones overlap, then it is up to the states to delineate the actual maritime boundary, but generally any point within an overlapping area defaults to the nearest state.
Naturally the USA and most nations of the Western Empire oppose this measure, although they defend their own EEZs militarily. A military exclusion zone would prevent the Empire’s warships from entering large sections of the South China Sea. Indeed the Empire does not want to ask permission before sending its warships closer than 200 nautical miles to any foreign nation.
The Empire’s efforts to defeat these EEZ measures would be torpedoed if the truth about the MH3670 shoot-down was exposed. And if the missile came from a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, then the extremely troubled F-35 program (with its countless billions of dollars) might be politically killed.
A 220-ton aircraft doesn’t simply vanish in comparatively shallow waters. Not in an age where a stolen smartphone can be pinpointed to any location on earth. Today, nothing that gives off any kind of electronic or energy ‘signature’ cannot be found, down to the battery of a wristwatch worn by someone in a remote forest.
And so the Western Empire has staged a wild goose chase in the Indian Ocean, far away from the shoot-down spot in the South China Sea.
Every day the corporate media outlets present a fresh wave of lies, irrelevances, and trivialities designed to keep everyone confused and guessing. Today’s bullshit (two years and four months after the plane
disappeared was shot down) is that MH370’s captain (Zaharie Ahmad Shah) had a flight simulator at home, on which he had plotted a course over the Indian Ocean. This is according to the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, an Australian government agency that dispenses lies about MH370.
The plane’s captain, Zaharie Shah, had flown for more than 15 years, and was so experienced that he was what the airline industry calls a teaching pilot. Yet suddenly he wigged out and flew in the opposite direction of his intended flight path? I call bullshit.
The western media outlets claim (with zero proof) that the pilot committed suicide, but Malaysian government absolutely denies this. No one has produced any evidence that the captain was suffering from any personal or financial stresses at the time.
What about the couple of small pieces of debris that supposedly washed up on Réunion, an island in the western Indian Ocean? This is more bullshit designed to maintain the distraction from the truth. The couple of pieces were supposedly sent to France, where they vanished.
To repeat: if the truth about MH370 came out, then the nations of the South China Sea (including China itself) would have political leverage to keep out the Western Empire’s warships.
No one does that to the Empire (although the Empire does it to everyone else). And so the cover-up will continue.
Incidentally I’m surprised that politicians and the corporate media outlets haven’t yet blamed MH370’s disappearance on ISIS™.
After all, they blame everything else on ISIS™.
