Debris field spotted

We won’t know its identity until some ship manages to snatch some of it up for analysis, but this sounds like the most promising find so far:

New satellite images show a debris field of 122 objects floating in the Indian Ocean potentially connected to doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, officials said at a news conference today.

    Interesting use of “doomed”. Does the writer mean to suggest the flight was “destined” to plunge?

    I see thoughts of destiny frequently used in Leftist speech and thinking, as well as by their brainwasheds in, for example, college basketball. It is part of the Left-driven regression back into primitive humanity.

  2. Harold Says:

    Another case of sudden or not so sudden Jihad syndrome.

    Robert Spencer has this in his leading post today:

    “Also, Zaharie was a “fanatical” follower of Anwar Ibrahim, who is linked to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has praised Hitler and justified suicide bombing. Anwar Ibrahim is a founder of the International Institute of Islamic Thought; it is well established that the IIIT is a Muslim Brotherhood front.”

    Alas, Spencer now sees Jihadists everywhere.

    More concerning is this: “Despite the new data, the search zone remained huge — an area estimated at 622,000 square miles, about the size of Alaska.”

  4. Doom Says:

    Do you know how many groups of floating debris there are? My question is… does someone know what really happened? If so, why the secrecy? There are many reasons for it, if true. And, with some sorts of nations, it’s just the way of it. They never tell the truth, quite infamously, as women are want to do.

    Actually, I consider communism and socialism as feminism but enacted by men.

    So far the searches have turned up nothing. Another satellite has spotted more debris near the search site but they think it may just be trash.

    This could be the crash site or it may be another false alarm. It made sense that whoever was flying this plane would take the southern route as that would be the best way to avoid detection. But I thought the pilot had a destination in mind. On the other hand maybe it was a suicide. The pilot may have just wanted to avoid detection so he could crash the plane where it would be exceedingly difficult to find or recover anything. Who knows at this point.

    Saw a report where the Vietnamese officials say they found some stuff off their coast. Can’t be, or if it iis, the Indian Ocean is a loser.
    Fox contributor McInerny said his sources in the intel community and Boeing had it on the ground in Pakistan. Like to know what they knew, what they thought they knew, and how they knew it.
