BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines MH370: Australia Detects Distress Signal in Southern Indian Ocean
International Business Times ^ | 3/30/2014 | Vasudevan Sridharan

Posted on 03/30/2014 1:06:28 PM PDT by libh8er

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has detected a distress signal in the southern Indian Ocean near Antarctica as the search for debris from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 continues.

The emergency beacon came from a fishing vessel and the nature of the distress call is unknown.

AMSA said: "The beacon is located about 3,241km south-west of Perth and 648km north of the Antarctic mainland."

Two aircraft have been deployed to the area where the signal originated, and it will take at least five hours for planes to reach the location.

I doubt the plane could have gone that far..first they said that the plane was flying too fast so if it did crash it crashed further north, now they got this beacon, maybe it has nothing to do with the plane..meanwhile, CNN reports breaking news every time a cup is found, its considered a “Significant lead”

I’ve reached the point of total cynicism. I figure if they find anything it will now be something planted by the US Government in order to provide closure to this incident and help people move on and forget about terrorist invovlement: “Glad that’s over with.”

... It’s entirely possible that all of the debris that is being sighted that the world is all excited about .... may just turn out to be accumulated trash and debris that has either fallen or been dumped overboard over the years in open waters .... then caught caught up and gathered by ocean currents .... and nothing more than that.

You completely discount the possibility that the Antarticans shot it down.

Only for the truly cynical...

If you dare to follow this link, there are a few videos and radio interviews that were done.

Conspiracy type stuff it sounds like...yes...but the local host is generally well respected and not a nutcase!

Now, if you are ready ...take a deep breath and spend some time listening ....they replayed this yesterday.

It seems to me that as tumultuous as the Indian Ocean is reported to be...debris is probably scattered far and wide.

It’s also amazing the amount of debris that is floating in the ocean.

The professor, like McGuyver, could make a nuclear bomb from a paperclip, but he couldn’t patch the damned boat? LOL.
