Flight 370 Theory: An Act of Anti-Terrorism
03/20/2014 | GLDNGUN

Posted on 03/21/2014 1:51:02 PM PDT by GLDNGUN

As more and more details emerge from the strange events on Flight 370, the more clear it becomes that the entire operation from the flight path re-programming, cloaking and changes in altitude to the lack of communication of distress from passengers or crew members, the vanishing of the plane and passengers and continued invisibility was done by a highly sophisticated organization. It’s something out of a “Mission: Impossible” or similar movie. Who would be capable of pulling off such a flawlessly planned and executed “clean” operation? Any why?

The usual generic suspects have been mentioned as possibly being responsible for the plane’s disappearance: terrorists, hijackers, and suicide pilots. Considering the sophistication of the planning and execution of this operation it’s hard to imagine any terrorist organization, band of hijackers or suicidal pilot would be capable of pulling it off. And to what end? What “terror” has been wrought by the plane’s disappearance other than to those on the plane? Where are the hijackers’ ransom demands? Where is the crazy pilot’s suicide note or any other type of communication or clue about ending his life and that of hundreds of passengers in his care?

No, none of those would be capable of this plan. It was done by a highly sophisticated group with vast training, coordination and resources at its disposal. Still it would be impossible for such a group to exist, plan and execute its operations without the knowledge of the top spy agencies in the world…

…unless, of course if the organization responsible for the actions on Flight 370 was one of the top spy agencies in the world.

That brings us to the question of WHO are the top spy agencies in the world, and WHY would any of them want this plane to be taken off its course, all communications shut down, and to disappear without a trace?

In no particular order, here are the countries considered to have the most powerful, sophisticated spy agencies in the world:

US, Israel, UK, Russia, Germany, France, Australia, India, Pakistan, China.

These countries’ spy agencies are probably the only organizations capable of planning and executing such a flawless, precise, and perfect operation without detection or discovery. Now, the questions comes down to WHICH one and WHY?

Set that aside for a moment and consider how super powers, say the US for example, might protect itself from a specific type of terrorist threat – namely a suitcase nuclear devise or other WMD being flown into a major populated, strategic city and detonated, on an international flight from a country where terrorists, say Muslim extremists, are known to exist? In other words, what measures does the US take to keep a WMD from being flown in on a direct, commercial flight from a hostile country like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc., to New York or Washington DC to be detonated upon arrival?

Of course, the first line of defense would be to keep such a WMD from making it on the plane in the first place, but that can’t be the last line of defense. Security, baggage handlers, etc. in such countries can’t be blindly trusted. They could be terrorist or sympathizers themselves, and facilitate the placing of a WMD on a flight bound for the US.

No, it would be naïve to assume that countries like the US don’t have a plan in place in a case where it’s learned that a plane already off the ground has a WMD on board for the purpose of inflicting major damage at the plane’s destination.

Would they just shoot the plane down and kill a few hundred people in order to save a few million? Quite possibly, as a last resort, but that scenario has major problems, as well. The WMD might still be detonated by any terrorist(s) on board, albeit not over its intended target, but even if the WMD was never used, the other terror target would be hit with pinpoint accuracy – the econom target. Imagine the repercussions and ripples if the US shot down a commercial plane from say, Egypt, that had a suitcase nuke on it, minutes before it got to its intended target - Washington DC. Panic would still ensue because if 1WMD made it on board, how many others could there be out there? International travel would instantly come to a halt. The world’s economies would crash.

So, if you are a world superpower, what do you do to prevent from having to publicly shoot down a plane with a WMD that’s already in the air, and still keep it from making it to its intended target?

You have agents, disguised as normal citizens, on the plane with the authority and means to execute various plans to cover a variety of emergency situations, including learning of a WMD onboard.

The US has armed federal marshals on domestic flights, so it would be reasonable to assume they have equivalent international agents on international flights, especially from certain, suspect countries. In fact, it would irresponsible for the US to not have such agents on such flights.

In a scenario where US secret agents on an international flight are alerted that the plane they are on headed for Washington DC has a suitcase nuke “somewhere” on the plane, terrorist(s) with a trigger may or may not be on the plane, or it might be a bomb that can be remotely detonated, say by cell phone, what would the pre-planned operation be that the agents would execute?

First priority would be to divert the plane off its original programmed flight path and away from any other highly populated, strategic locations. Secondly, prevent the device from being detonated at all. Last, but not least, keep the entire episode from becoming known to the public.

If you combine this scenario with the aforementioned list of the world’s most powerful spy agencies, you will arrive at the most plausible theory that explains various aspects of this very mysterious Flight 370 situation.

Flight 370 was bound for Beijing - the capital of China with a population of over 21 million. It was coming from Malaysia, where Islam is the dominant religion. Malaysia has produced numerous terrorists such as Azahari Husin, Noordin Mohammed and Zulkifli Abdhir – all Islamic extremists responsible for multiple incidents. They are/were bomb-making experts and trained many in the “art”.

China has its own “war on terror”. Muslim Uighur separatists have been seeking to leave China and form a Uighur majority country since just after the Soviet Union fell in 1991. Muslim Uighurs attended extremist camps all over Afghanistan pre-2001 and there used to be several at Guantanamo Bay. They consider China to be an occupying and oppressive occupier. They have carried out terror incidents in China, and China has responded with strikes and raids. If there is any group that has a motive for attacking China it is one within the Muslim Extremist Uighur Easter Turkestan Independence Movement. In fact, one of Chinese Muslim extremist groups within that movement DID claim “credit” when the plane went missing. They are the only ones who have.

Maybe the group didn’t know all the details, but were they already aware that the plane was going to be used in some way as a weapon against China?

Somewhere in the mixture of Malaysian Muslim extremist bomb-making experts, Iranians (who are rapidly developing their nuclear abilities) traveling on stolen passports, and the Muslim extremist Chinese separatists, maybe they got a suitcase nuke or other WMD on the plane designed to destroy Beijing, its citizens and the Chinese economy.

If you are the Chinese, are you going to leave the security of 20+ million of your people and the future of your country up Malaysian airport security screeners and baggage handlers? Of course not. You are going to have highly trained Chinese agents on the plane, ready to execute a pre-planned strategy based on the threat. The Ministry of State Security (MSS) is one of the most powerful and most active Chinese intelligence agencies. Its most successful spies are agents stationed throughout the world posing as ordinary citizens.

Evidently 20 employees of Freescale Semiconductor, which develops components for hi-tech weapons systems and aircraft navigation among other things, were on board Flight 370. This Texas-based technology firm has several manufacturing sites in Kuala Lumpur and China; 12 of the employees were from Malaysia and eight were from China.

The passengers on board were engineers and other experts, said Mitch Haws, Freescale vice- president, global communications and investor relations.

"These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people," Haws said.

Again, to think that some of these highly skilled Chinese workers or other Chinese on the plane were not spies/agents would be naïve.

Perhaps sometime after take-off of Flight 370, the Chinese secret agents on board receive word from Beijing that there is a suitcase nuke (or other WMD) on the plane, and to execute the pre-planned operation for such an event. Either through cooperation with the pilot/co-pilot or coercion, the highly skilled Chinese agents calmly and quietly enter the cockpit and take control of the situation. The passengers are unaware of anything unusual going on.

The Chinese agents re-program the plane’s flight computer to take the plane off its original destination, and put it on another pre-planned course.

This accomplishes priority #1 of taking the plane off the flight plan to Beijing.

They have the co-Pilot maintain the appearance of “normal” by telling ground control “all right, good night” and give no indication to the passengers that anything is wrong, other than maybe announce a slight alter of the flight plan to “avoid turbulence”. This is to avoid tipping off any terrorist(s) on board that their plan has been discovered and prevent a mid-air detonation of the bomb.

Without knowing who the terrorist(s) on board are (if there are any on board) and/or where the WMD is, how do you disable the terrorists and/or their ability to detonate the WMD? Any announcement of a bomb, or questioning of passengers, or a search of the plane is going to obviously alert any terrorist(s) on board that they plot has been discovered.

Taking the plane to a very high altitude accomplishes several objectives. Everyone without an oxygen mask goes unconscious and eventually dies. The agents, and possibly the pilots were the only ones with access to oxygen masks to maintain consciousness. That altitude also makes it impossible for a cell phone signal to be established were someone to try to detonate the bomb with a phone call. Once every passenger, meaning every potential terrorist, on board is dead, the plane can drop to the lowest possible altitude and continue on its new flight path to its ultimate destination to avoid radar detection. This is to keep any terror groups from knowing where the plane is, as they might try to have a “chase” plane catch the jetliner and remotely explode the bomb. This also keeps anyone else from knowing where the plane ultimately went and what ultimately happened to the plane.

This is also why they disabled all transponders and communications - so the plane couldn’t be tracked or communicated with.

So where did the plane go to? The Chinese would want it be somewhere hidden, where they alone have access to it to defuse any threats, and to destroy any evidence that there was ever any threats to avoid the panic and collapse the would result if it became public knowledge a suitcase nuke was nearly detonated over Beijing. One possible destination would be China's Taklamakan Desert. The region - described by Encyclopaedia Britannica as a "great desert of Central Asia and one of the largest sandy deserts in the world" - has no shortage of space far from prying eyes. The BBC's Jonah Fisher tweeted on 15 March: "Being briefed by Malaysia officials they believe most likely location for MH370 is on land somewhere near Chinese/Kyrgyz border." This theory rests on an extraordinary run through the radar systems of several countries, but that is exactly what the new pre-determined flight plan programmed into the computer would have been designed and capable of doing.

Huang Huikang, the Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia, said that search and rescue operations in the Chinese territories of the northern corridor had begun, Xinhua news agency reported. Mr Huang also confirmed that background checks on Chinese nationals did not uncover any evidence suggesting they were involved in hijacking or an act of terrorism against the plane. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei also told a briefing that China had deployed 20 satellites to search for the missing jetliner in Chinese territory which covers a northern corridor through which the aircraft could have flown. In other words, China is telling the world not to bother looking any deeper into the Chinese citizens on the plane and not to bother looking in China itself because they have all of that covered. How convenient.

Other than that, it is striking how quiet the government of China is being on this incident. The vast majority of the passengers on the plane were Chinese on a flight headed for China, yet the Chinese seem to be letting others take the lead in the investigation and not making demands or complaints about the “investigation”.

To complete their operation, there’s really only 1 more thing China needs to do to end the speculation of where they plane is. They need to plant some scraps of the plane far away from China, perhaps adrift in the Indian Ocean, somewhere extremely difficult to access where the water is very deep and nearly unsearchable, so it can be presumed the plane and passengers are at the bottom of the ocean, never to be found – precisely where the search is now being focused. It won’t be surprising when all of the deep water searches come up empty as the rest of the plane and the remains of the passengers were quietly and quickly destroyed at a remote location in China shortly after their disappearance.

After Australia’s announcement of the search in the aforementioned area, China's icebreaker for Antarctic research, Xuelong, or Snow Dragon, is on its way from Perth to search the area. Up to five more Chinese ships, with three ship-borne helicopters, were steaming towards the search zone from across the Indian Ocean. Australian authorities said they had not asked for the ships to search the area. Perhaps China just wants to make sure, “something” is found.

so ok.....leading spy spooks.....now, given the recent revelations regarding NSA....who has the capability to intercept cargo manifests on a global basis, be it marine shipping or aircargo....just speculation on my part

US, Israel, UK, Russia, Germany, France, Australia, India, Pakistan, China.

These countries’ spy agencies are probably the only organizations capable of planning and executing such a flawless, precise, and perfect operation without detection or discovery. Now, the questions comes down to WHICH one and WHY?

I don’t agree with the suitcase bomb theory.

I think it is simpler than that.

But as for you who think it is at the bottom of the Indian Ocean, I ask you to pull up the Google map of that area.

Just south of it is the beginning of the Antarctic Ice.

Where was that plane going? There is absolutely nothing there.

Wherever that plane is, whether in the ocean or on land, it was or is headed somewhere.

Pings be damned.

Ah—no.

Other than one single piece of evidence — all other evidence points to the an obvious result. The plane suffered a mechanical failure of some sort. The pilots were reacting to that failure — turning the plane back to Malaysia. After programming in the waypoint, the plane systems caused the plane to rapidly change height. This asphyxiated the passengers and crew. The damaged plane continue on its last set course until it ran out of fuel and crashed in the Ocean.

The “fact” inconsistent with this is the very reliable Malaysian government’s change of the purported waypoint turn to before the last communication. We may never know — but more than likely, this will prove to be incorrect.

If the plane were hijacked, or a function of a bad actor — it seems a straight ditch into the Ocean would be appropriate. It is possible that the pilot — feeling suicidal, decided to knock out his co-pilot and than asphyxiate the passengers to spare them. Once done — he couldn’t bring himself to drive the plane into the ocean. He may have killed himself, taken poison to knock himself out, or sat there in a psychosis as the plane continued on until it ran out of fuel.

Either way — that thing is in the Indian Ocean.

I still beleive it was hijacked and then shot down by India or Malaysia . . .

No doubt it was hijacked, but I don't buy the superspy theory.

It didn't work out they way the planned, whoever it was.

IRAN!

I think the Facebook account of Iranian passenger Pouria Nourmohammadi should be analyzed for the use of terrorist code words and phrases prior to its deactivation, along with him perhaps symbolically posing with the Kuala Lumpur Twin Towers during his brief stay there:

Another theory seeded by parochial concerns, just what we need. What would be the theory of a, let’s say, Paraguayan peasant, I wonder?

I don’t buy your premise.

Nothing is clear.

The altitude changes may be quite inaccurate, according to experts in the field, so making theories based on 45,000 feet etc., is meaningless.

The statements out of Malaysia keep changing and can’t be trusted. Did the “turn around” happen before or after the last communication from the plane? That story has changed and there seems to be confusion on that point.

We don’t know much of anything.

I think this theory is better than most. I’m not entirely on board with the “act of anti-terrorism” though. My guess: state sponsored agents from Pakistan or Iran are involved and the plane will reappear on O.B.L “death day” May 2nd.

No, that’s not reasonable to assume. How many flights are we talking about, where you would need multiple agents on every flight, to guard against a frankly not very likely scenario? We don’t even manage to get one Air Marshal on every domestic flight, so where’s the budget to pay for this?

Also, we haven’t even taken the minimal steps to ensure competent domestic security for our flights, so why would we assume that the same incompetent government could manage to protect international flights better than our own?
