Finding lost Malaysia plane may be impossible: US official
New York Post | March 31, 2014 | Bruce Golding

Posted on 03/30/2014 11:08:33 PM PDT by conservative98

A US Navy official warned Sunday that finding the missing Malaysian jet may be impossible, as efforts to locate the plane intensified ahead of the expected failure of its black-box homing beacons.

“It all depends on how effective we are at reducing that search area,” Capt. Mark Matthews told reporters at Australia’s Stirling Naval Base near Perth.

“Right now, the search area is basically the size of the Indian Ocean, which would take an untenable amount of time to search.”

You know it’s impossible to find if you know that you are looking where it isn’t.

It’s impossible to find until Hussein’s IRANIAN hijackers finish loading it with radioactive material and crash it into NYC or Tel Aviv.

At that point, it becomes very easy to find b/c it just crashed on everybody’s head.

Meanwhile, outraged relatives of Chinese passengers on the plane flew from Beijing to Malaysia to demand an apology from the Malaysian government and a meeting with Prime Minister Najib Razak.

“Hand us the murderer. Tell us the truth. Give us our relatives back,” read one banner carried by the protesters.

The crowd of about 250 burst into applause when one woman denounced the government-owned Malaysia Airlines as “criminal suspects.”

Still trying to believe that Israel actually shut down their entire ministry and all 100 pus embassies over a pay issue. They have a solid A+ from S&P.

For the next three weeks the lower east coast has no satellite in the air.

Everyone take care. Something is up.

I do think they know something - and brought all of their ambassadors home for a reason other than a pay dispute.

What are our reconnaissance satellites doing up there? You would think they were up to the task of spotting Flight 370 and tracking it right to that airfield in Iran where it landed.

Anything on land is findable but this plane is under water — a lot of it.

If it was in some mullah’s driveway in Pakistan the moment those engines were turned on they would “ping” and Inmarsat would paint them and find them. If they moved Inmarsat would know it. Big Mac’s groupies don’t think about that.

They need to assume a criminal mind not a suicidal one. I’m betting he may have tried a survivable crash closer to Indonesia perhaps just south of West Java.

They are assuming a 460 flight path — but they also need to develop a 400 one and perhaps a 350 one.

They also need to put a reward out on the plane so enterprising Indonesian fishermen will join in the search.

Israel didn’t shut them down ... read this ...


The Foreign Ministry’s workers union has called for a general strike Sunday as part of an ongoing labor dispute. All 103 of Israel’s embassies, consulates, and diplomatic delegations across the world will be closed, including the ministry’s headquarters in Jerusalem.

In addition to increasing pressure on the Finance Ministry, the workers union decided to escalate their struggle and have instructed the ministry’s employees to leave their workplaces and announce a general strike Sunday afternoon.

The workers will shut down the entire Foreign Ministry, as well as Israeli missions and embassies around the world, for the first time since the establishment of the State of Israel in an open-ended strike which could paralyze Israel’s diplomatic services.

Yep. I just have a very odd feeling about all the info around this plane and the things going on re: Israel and Iran.

Do you have the link where just after it disappeared Iran claimed we had kidnapped the plane?

Then a bit later Israeli specialists, three of them, suggested Iran had taken it.

Since the “gadgets” were all turned off, it becomes a HUGE OCEAN, itsie-bitsie, teeny-weeny plane search. And the search area is full of man made garbage that looks like pieces of an aircraft from search aircraft and satellite imagery.

This is WORSE than a needle in a haystack search.

That's the real story even if they do find the plane at this point. They can lose a huge plane on a scheduled flight with hundreds of people on it, but are capable of reading every post you make, every phone call you take...they'll be watching you.

Such lying crap.

The U.S. Navy could have dropped sonobuoys from P-8's or the Australians from P-3's a week ago over the target areas for thousands of miles and picked up signals from those Dukane ULB's (pingers), or a single SURTASS ship could have patrolled the area and easily have picked up the signals from the CVR or DFDR.

I knew they would give it a few weeks and than state they will never find FLT370 publicly, because secretly they know exactly where that 777 is.
