No plane, but foreign media have found an enemy

With the lack of any evidence as to where Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went, the foreign media have all turned on the Malaysian government, writes Asia-Pacific freelance journalist Hari Raj.

In the six days since Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared, search and rescue personnel from around the world have scoured wider and wider swathes of ocean for a sign, a wreck, anything. But as rumour piles upon innuendo and bizarre twists emerge, one clear target has emerged from the confusion: the Malaysian government.

    This whole affair is rapidly taking on the look of a charade. And not necessarily on behalf of the Malaysian govt.

    When we see the entire world’s MSM assailing an individual or a nation there is usually an alterior motive.

    What about US aviation officials commenting yesterday that the plane had probably been hijacked and taken to the Arabian Gulf or Pakistan and might be used for another purpose. Don’t tell me! That purpose would be t-rorism..Right? This is blatantly leading the witness by suggestion via the MSM.

    Lets not forget that Malaysia is one of the non supportive Z-onist nations.

    In this hysterical media feeding frenzy contest – where someone’s going to have a heart attack star-jumping to conclusions – I’m surprised someone hasn’t trotted out “Aliens”?

    been following this story since it started. malaysian govt mentioned possibility of radar indications showing a possible turn away from its designated course on the first day.
    its explanations I find quite plausible and the suggestion by Clive Kessler that this is a huge global issue is ridiculous. Its a storm in a teacup, a molehill that will have some kind of rational outcome. To blame the Malaysian govt is where it gets weird, like a bunch of primary school kids arguing about a lost ball. m.

    klewy – I did hear some talk of analien activities, though not yet probes, on one of the (Sydney)westie bogan stations and even they thought it weird, dissing 2GB’s resident maddie, Brian “Fine Print” Wilshire.
    However, the article is right to point out what happens when a government/kultur has to deal with the real world beyond their own cranium-in-cloaca society.
    The same thing happened to Shrub when non US journos. wondered in print WTF? but why would a hyperpower care.
    On tuther hand…

    Where have all the comments gone from the “did China find flight MH370” article?

    In one respect there’s a silver lining to this cloud for the Malaysian government.

    While the media is dominated by the missing Boeing, it conveniently distracts from the plight of Opposition Leader, Anwar Ibrahim. Less than a day before MH370 disappeared he was sentenced to five years gaol, convicted of sodomy on the government’s Appeal to overturn his earlier acquittal.

    @ Zut Alors.

    “Everything eventually comes back to Anwar Ibrahim”. Rather than push him aside, Malaysian Gov will be putting a great deal of effort into pinning this on Anwar. Thankfully this has gained little traction internationally but is another example of Clive Kessler’s observation.

    It’s the muppet show.

    The Chief of the Malaysian Air Force has to resign and the Government acknowledge that top positions in the Government including the Military and Police have been filled by less than competent cronies. The UMNO and Barisan Nasional crony culture has all but destroyed Malaysia.
    What if the aircraft was hijacked and then targeted a Malaysian city? What would the idiot Air Force chief and Defence Minister say?
