BREAKING: Two Suspect Iranian Passengers on Flight MH370 Identified Roommate Interviewed
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 3/10/14 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/10/2014 9:01:04 PM PDT by Nachum

The BBC Persian channel interviewed a friend of the two suspect passengers who were traveling with stolen passports. The friend says the two men wanted to migrate to Europe.

The two men travelling on stolen passports on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared on Saturday have been identified as Iranian nationals.

A BBC Persian report quotes an Iranian friend of one of the men, who said he hosted the pair in Kuala Lumpur after they arrived from Tehran in the days preceding their flight to Beijing.

The friend, who knew one of the men from his school days in Iran, said the men had bought the fake passports because they wanted to migrate to Europe.

The pair were travelling on passports belonging to Christian Kozel, an 30-year-old Austrian, and Luigi Maraldi, a 37-year-old Italian.

So, its unlikely they are terrorists, unless this was more elaborate. So what went wrong?

I hope the Iranians ticked off the Chinese!
I suspect the Chinese would take no prisoners except to torture for their amusement.

If this story is accurate, it does seem to lessen the possibility that this was a terrorist act. I have some questions:

1. Is it true, as I have heard, that it is common for people to use fake or stolen passports, and that the situation on this plane was therefore not particularly unusual?

2. Is it true that the plane changed course, i.e., turned around, shortly before it disappeared? If this is true, the possibility of terrorism or hijacking re-emerges.

Yes it is unlikely they were terrorists based on a roommate of one of the Iranians. Yep.

Missing MH370: Kelantan duo report seeing lights ‘falling’ at high speed
http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/03/11/Kelantan-duo-report-seeing-lights-falling-at-high-speed/

Busted! Flight Radar Caught Changing Flight Path of Malaysia Flight 370!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNZtz-HVy6c

WHAT I THINK HAS HAPPENED:
No crash debris at all has been found at all or any sign thereof so I rule out a crash. Even EgyptAir flight 990
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EgyptAir_Flight_990
had some, not a lot, of debris floating on the ocean, after the Muzzie dived it into the drink.

I speculate that the aircraft has been either hijacked by the Iranians or stolen with the cap and f.o.’s permission. They turned the aircraft around, dropped to a low altitude to avoid radar but burning fuel at a higher rate than at cruising altitude, and flew to a remote airfield in one of many numerous islands in that region of the world, disembarked the passengers, and have loaded an Iranian nuke on board. That 777 will be repainted and re-programmed to look like another legitimate civilian aircraft. Then it will be flown into US airspace and detonated over a large city either in CA or NY. It probably would not be detected until it was too late.

Think of what would happen if this scenario played out. I would suggest everyone be ready. This is the game changer.

Now if only a date could be pinned down either on the American calendar or Muzzie one when this might take place.

There are now 237 suspects.

But...

A) Where are the passengers now?

B) Could a plane of this size be landed on any of the tiny, craggy islands nearby? How many have airfields?

C) Is it not possible Kim Jong Un needed a cast and set for his own version of ‘Non-Stop’?

Maybe it was one of those freak accidents like the tail fin shearing off, sending the plane down into the ocean.

But, that makes it more bizarre. No debris, no trace, yet without a bomb explosion, I cant see how a plane with such an excellent record could disintegrate in any other way. Where did it go?

They’d have been able to send a signal before it hit the water if that had happened.

I wonder about the reports we’ve heard about the plane being off course. How could a pilot not say anything, if the pilot went off course? That would still point to terrorism, meaning maybe someone else had control of the cockpit. I know the copilot was young...

A) Off-loaded and probably dealt with as infidels by Muzzies worldwide.

B) Do you know how many islands there are in Indonesia and the Philippines and that region of the world? Think of the leftover, abandon WWII airfields that could be covertly repaired.

C) I haven’t seen “Non-Stop.”

There is a good chance this flight was recorded on the radar logs of any US Navy ships that were in the area. Therefore US military intelligence most likely knows what happened to this jet. Also it is not important what the Malaysians say. They have a strong vested interest in claiming that their airports are secure. What is important is what the Chinese believe and how they react.

It seems overly elaborate to me. The Iranians would have had to buy an old airfield (probably the whole island) and upgrade it for the size of the aircraft. They’d also have to have the pilots be in on it. Hijacking aircraft these days is a difficult task without some signal getting out, even if you get a gun on board.

“So what went wrong?”

My non-conspiracy theory is that of a similar fate to golfer Payne Stewart’s private jet crash in 1999. They lost cabin pressure and all passed out, but the plane flew for 1500 more miles before crashing in North Dakota.

It was not known why they lost pressure, but it was surmised it was so fast they did not have time to put on 02 masks.

So maybe a small meteor or some space object hit the plane and it was suddenly depressurized but kept flying itself, out of radar range, somewhere in the Pacific, until crashing.

Then why did the plane change its course? And why has no debris been found. If what you say is true, it would have hit the water semi-intact

That wouldn’t matter. How would they get into the cockpit without some kind of signal getting out. It is only 2 buttons to turn on distress.

I know. Maybe these Iranian innocent boys going to try to get on the dole in Europe just picked the wrong flight. Maybe there was still terrorism. My previous post was just an open query as to whether the plane was tracked as being off course. If it was, that still sounds like incapacitated pilot.

Escobar and Gacha blew up an Avianca flight to try to kill president candidate Gaviria once

Gaviria was lucky....the 150 folks on board were not

A 777 is a big bird

Whatever caused the depressurization could have also caused a course change. If it flew another 1000 or 2000 miles then crashed, the debris filed has not been located as it is not in the search area.

Generally, Iranians do not send their own to die in suicide bombs. They get others to do it for them, IMHO.

True, but someone probably put the squeeze on this guy. This wasn’t him sitting in Starbucks with his favorite drink before him. Also, his story has to pan out. There has to be that Aunt in Germany or wherever, and the other pieces need to fit. If not, in a day we will hear that their stories don’t pan out.
