There is no question, the Captain COULD HAVE done it.
There is also no question (albeit is it plausible..??) that it COULD HAVE been a weird and mysterious chain of events and technical failures that eventually led to the disappearance of MH370 over the SIO.
There is a third possibility, though. For that we have to delve a little deeper.
The world as we know it has entered a ‘New Cold War’; or else the old cold war has been put back on the boil.
Hand in hand with a cold war go the inevitable spy-games.
Everyone can work out for themselves who are the ‘white-hats’ and who is the black.
The third possibility then, in these kind of games, is that one side wanted something which the other side did not want them to have. Or there could be all sorts of other reasons of that nature; i.e. motives that are of serious importance to them, known only to those involved in that spy-world.
The two sides have fought it out amongst themselves and one side won.
MH370 disappeared in the process.
And if there were spies on board 9M-MRO
, they almost certainly would not have gone down with the aircraft.
Would we, the general public get to know about this?
No way; the spy-agencies (no matter which country) would do everything in their power to prevent that.
We would be fed false-flag type of information.
Would various governments be at liberty to tell the public at least some of the truth?
No way; the spy-agencies (no matter which side or country) would do everything in their power to prevent that.
Hijacking, spoofing SatCom data, making a jetliner disappear would all just be another day at the office in that kind of world. Then again, two airliners, from the same airline, coming to grief in such a short succession is too fishy.
Or is it?
