China, Vietnam have vested interest in the South China Seas and finding the missing MH370 first will stamp their superiority. 

As the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 enters a full-week, the question now is who or which country will find the missing Boeing 777-200ER first.

Now, it  is a matter of national prestige.

In the picture are China, Vietnam and Malaysia, all  including Phillipines have vested interests in the Spratly islands among others in the South China Sea. (more…)

Did MAS deliberately delay the information giving time for the plane to escape to a far away destination?

The past five days we have heard speculations by aviation experts as to what may or could have happened with MH370 which went off the radar last Saturday at 1.30am carrying with it 239 passengers and crew.

As at 3pm Wednesday, there has been no conclusive findings for experts to examine. MH370 is still not visible in any form.

Allow me to put forward some theories that may help the authorities to pinpoint the most probable cause. (more…)

The Royal Malaysian Navy, a Royal Malaysian Navy Fennec helicopter prepares to depart to aid in the search and rescue efforts for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 over the Straits of Malacca in this handout photograph received yesterday.

Satellites picked up faint electronic pulses from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it went missing on Saturday, but the signals gave no information about where the stray jet was heading and little else about its fate, two sources close to the investigation said yesterday.

But the “pings” indicated its maintenance troubleshooting systems were switched on and ready to communicate with satellites, showing the aircraft, with 239 people on board, was at least capable of communicating after losing touch with air traffic controllers. (more…)

MH370 exposes to the world Malaysia's WEAKNESSES after 5 decades of UMNO-BN MISRULESarawak Report

Malaysians are used to suffering under third rate leaders, promoted because of family not merit, and they are used to incompetence (or worse) being ignored or covered up by a compliant media.

However, others are not.

As the days have rolled by since the disappearance of Flight MH370, more and more countries with citizens on board have been left in askance over the apparent ineptness of the people supposedly running Malaysia and their crony civil service. (more…)

The lack of definitive information about the fate of Malaysia Flight 370 has baffled and riveted expert and average person alike. Even the latest development of a Chinese satellite apparently having captured an image of some type of debris on Sunday seems like a long shot.

If it turns out to be the plane, many questions will remain, including why did it take three days to analyze the data? And considering that shipping lanes are in the area, might the debris be from another source?

Amid the muddle of speculation, possibilities and blind alleys, are there logical explanations in this mysterious disappearance? The short answer is yes. But what, of what we know so far, makes sense exactly? (more…)
