    It's even better known how much MSM BS is believed and swallowed on a daily basis.

    They are just trying to discredit and cover it all up, it is a conspiracy, the plane did not crash they took it to Diego Garcia. The Americans working with the British have it so they could get the "important people" and the Chinese gold. The socialists are also in on it because well they are socialists and anything that is bad or goes wrong is their fault.
    If it was a libertarian setup everything would be peachy :)

    I meant to highlight the difference between a plane dropping 9.1km out of the sky and smashing into the ocean, which seems to be the new proposition, versus the old proposition that the plane was flying low to avoid radar. I imagine the damage to the plane and the ability to recover anything would be significantly different between the two scenarios. The latest scenario, providing less chance of recovery.

    But wait there's more! The damn thing happened to crash in a part of the ocean that is unmapped and on top of a "giant chain of volcanoes". :|


    I hope for the sake of the families that you are right, that the plane is found and bodies of the passengers are recovered. But I doubt it and still reckon that in the end, it will be a declaration of truth, rather than any independently verifiable, evidence based finding.

    Which is a case of the "curious incident of the dog in the night-time", meaning the omission of naturally expected outcomes versus the unnatural alignment of supportive coincidences gives rise to questions of veracity over claims.

    Like many others, I have been partially following the airline 'disappearance'.

    Then it occurred to me, what has actually been happening in the financial world, whilst I have been fortuitously distracted?

    I can't help but feel that there is something else going on that is as equally important to us all. Any ideas?

    Ukraine was the big story pushed to the sidebar during this.

    Alternatively, shit just happens sometimes. Planes crash, people die.

    Perhaps. However, I can't help but get the feel that there is something else that is happening in the financial world.

    Yes I'm with GP. This plane disapearance is related to nothing and has nothing to do with anything.

    Not everything is a conspiracy! In fact, most things that happen are not conspiracies.

    Let's be clear, I am not suggesting that a conspiracy at the highest levels is involved.

    Or that the aeroplane was deliberately the target of someone for ulterior motives.

    However, with most attention being on this incident, perhaps just perhaps, there could be the impetus to blind the general population for other happenings that are underway in the financial world.

    I can't think of any major law changes that occurred in Washington in the past few weeks and the only real significant finanical news over the past few weeks I can think of was a few large Chinese companies defaulting. But if "they" wanted a distraction I think the Ukrainian - Russian crisis would be the more suitable option.

    Never let a good crisis go to waste.
    You don't have to create it, just take advantage of it.

    A machine that goes "ping" when it locates something that makes it go "ping"...ie missing aircraft type things, has gone "ping".

    A bit like metal detecting with no discriminator I think. You don't know exactly what it is until you go have an actual look.

    Terminal velocity is terminal velocity - the additional few kilometres of fall from a greater height is unlikely to materially alter the speed of impact into the water, and thus unlikely to make a material difference to the damage the plane and occupants will suffer.
