4. Chinese 9/11
If MH370 was indeed hijacked by terrorists like the Uyghurs or another militant jihadist group, where did it go?
Some Reddit conspiracists think that perhaps it was landed somewhere in the Asian Pacific to be used for a later attack as a missile.
If that’s true, burgeoning superpower China would be the likely target. Especially in light of the mounting homegrown terrorism it’s trying to keep out of the press. Per TrutherNews:
In the last few months, Islamic terror in China has been reaching a crescendo. For example, on October 30, 2013, Chinese police arrested 5 people over a terror attack in Tiananmen Square. Roughly 2 months later on December 16, 2013, it was reported that Chinese police shot and killed 14 suspected terrorists in the northwest Muslim region of China. Two weeks later on December 30, 2013, it was reported that Chinese police killed another 8 “terrorists” in Xinjiang province. A month later on January 25, 2014, it was reported that 12 people were killed after Chinese police attacked terrorists in Xinjiang province. A few weeks later on February 15, 2014, it was reported that China had killed 11 more “terrorists” in the Xinjiang region. Earlier this month on March 1, 2014, Xinjiang terrorists attacked a crowded train station with knives, killing 29 people and injuring 130 in what is now being called the “Chinese 9/11”. Needless to say, a Chinese-based 9/11-style terror attack on the U.S. would be the next step in the evolution of China-based terrorism.
5. MH370 Never Existed
Apophenia is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.
So what did i-am-SHER-locked notice? He wrote:
Was looking at the Wikipedia page for the missing Malaysia Airlines, and noticed that it’s was the 404th 777 Boeing produced. An HTTP 404 error mean not found, which in this case is oddly appropriate for the status of the aircraft, or just a coincidence.
But we doubt the Illuminati are that tongue in cheek.
UPDATE Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 5:02:54 PM EDT: As new information surfaces about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s disappearance, new conspiracy theories are developing. Here are the 5 newest ones!
6. Which Flight Path?
The original flight path of MH370 had the airplane heading northeast towards Beijing, but new information released by the Malaysian military suggests the plane veered wildly off course a few hours into the flight and may have ended up flying over the Strait of Malacca, which runs along Malaysia’s west coast—the opposite direction of where it should have been headed.
The Malaysian military believes an airliner missing for almost four days with 239 people on board flew for more than an hour after vanishing from air traffic control screens, changing course and travelling west over the Strait of Malacca, a senior military source said.
If the reports from the military are verified, it would mean the plane was able to maintain a cruising altitude and flew for about 500 km (350 miles) with its transponder and other tracking systems apparently switched off.
The report is still being verified, but if it holds true, how did no one catch this sooner? The questions keep mounting with MH370 and it seems as though it has just vanished into thin air. But even worse, if MH370 did end up in the Strait of Malacca, the past four days have been spent searching MH370’s original flight path in the Gulf of Thailand.
7. Cell Phones Still On When Called—And Get Hung Up
An even weirder occurrence surrounding the disappearance of MH370 is that some of the 239 passengers’ cell phones appear to still be connected
China.org.cn reported 19 families signed a joint statement saying their family members’ cell phones connected, but the calls hung up. Relatives have asked Malaysia Airlines to reveal any information they might be hiding, seeking an explanation for the eerie phone connections. The relatives have complained that the Malaysia Airlines is not responding as actively as it should.
“This morning, around 11:40 [am], I called my older brother’s number twice, and I got the ringing tone,” said Bian Liangwei, sister of one of the passengers. At 2pm, Bian called again and heard it ringing once more.
“If I could get through, the police could locate the position, and there’s a chance he could still be alive.” She has passed on the number to Malaysia Airlines and the Chinese police.
If these phones are indeed still connected as both off-beat and mainstream media sources suggest, authorities could easily track MH370 using GPS. The question then becomes, Why aren’t they?
