They are looking in the wrong place.
That is the only logical conclusion anyone can come to. The missing Boeing 777 Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 may well have been taken over by Chinese separatists who hijacked the plane in order to take it to the Xinjiang Urumqi region.
Well within the Boeing 777 capabilities of reaching, Xinjiang is the home of a ruthless band of Chinese Muslim separatists and may well be the the resting place of the 239 of those on-board MH 370 originally bound for Beijing.
The Xinjiang conflict is an ongoing separatist struggle in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) far-west province of Xinjiang. A group of Uyghur separatists claim that the region, which they refer to as East Turkestan, is not legally a part of China, but was invaded by the PRC in 1949 and has since been under Chinese occupation. The separatist movement is led by Turkic Islamist militant organizations, most notably the East Turkestan independence movement, against the national government in Beijing.
In 2007, the world’s attention was brought to the conflict following the Xinjiang raid, a thwarted 2008 suicide bombing attempt on a China Southern Airlines flight, and the2008 Xinjiang attack which resulted in the deaths of sixteen police officers four days before the Beijing Olympics.
Further incidents include the July 2009 Ürümqi riots, the September 2009 Xinjiang unrest, and the 2010 Aksu bombing that led to the trials of 376 people. The 2011 Hotan attack in July led to the deaths of 18 civilians. Although all of the attackers were Uyghur, both Han and Uyghur people were victims. In 2011, six ethnic Uyghur men attempted to hijack an aircraft heading toÜrümqi, but failed after passengers and crew resisted and restrained the hijackers.
On 24 April 2013, clashes occurred between a group of armed men and social workers,then police near Kashgar. The violence left at least 21 people dead, including 15 police and officials. A local government official said that the clashes broke out after three local officials had reported suspicious men armed with knives who were hiding at a house in Selibuya township, outside Kashgar.
Two months later, on 26 June 2013, 27 people were killed in riots; 17 of them were killed by rioters, while the other ten people were alleged assailants who were shot dead by police in the township of Lukqun.
On 1 March 2014, a group of knife-wielding assailants attacked people at the Kunming Railway Station killing at least 29 and injuring 130 others. China blamed Xinjiang militants for the attack.
Just look at the facts – the known facts.
Chinese Muslim extremists kill http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-26414018
This group of Muslim extremists are fighting against Chinese rule over the region and have already acquired a reputation for killing innocent people.
Most of the passengers on-board MH370 were of Chinese nationality.
There is a huge desert south of the Chinese city Xinjiang the size of the continental United States.
The simple reality is that in all likelihood, that is the region that Chinese authorities need to start looking.
Meanwhile confusion continues to cloud the reporting of the ill-fated flight.
According to Channel 9 Australia, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said there were two potential final satellite communications from the plane — one in the southern Indian Ocean near Indonesia, and another on the border between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
In a press conference held on Saturday afternoon, Mr Razak said that the plane was steered in a westerly direction.
“These moments are consistent deliberation action from someone on the plane,” he said.
“According to the new data, the last confirmed communication between the plane and the satellite was at 8.11am Malaysia time on Saturday.”
Mr Razak confirmed the plane’s transponder was switched off.
The BBC added –
The communications systems of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 were deliberately disabled, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak has said.
According to satellite and radar evidence, he said, the plane then changed course and could have continued flying for a further seven hours.
He said the “movements are consistent with the deliberate action of someone on the plane”.
The plane disappeared a week ago with 239 people on board.
The Kuala Lumpur-Beijing flight last made contact with air traffic control over the South China Sea to the east of Malaysia, about one hour after take-off.
Mr Razak told a news conference that new satellite evidence shows “with a high degree of certainty” that the aircraft’s communications systems were disabled and then it changed course, flying back over Malaysia towards India.
Satellite signals continued to be picked up from the plane some seven hours after it lost radar contact.
Mr Razak said the authorities were now trying to trace the plane across two possible corridors
- from the border of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan through to northern Thailand
- south from Indonesia to the southern Indian Ocean.
The investigation, he said, had “entered a new phase”, and the search of the South China Sea had been discontinued.
Addressing reports that the plane had been hijacked, he said only “we are still investigating all possibilities as to what caused MH370 to deviate”.
