Malaysian plane’s communication system 'was disabled before it disappeared'

It is very likely flight MH370 had its communications “deliberately disabled” before it went missing, but there has been no confirmation the plane was hijacked, Malaysian PM Najib Razak said at a press conference.

“There is a high degree of certainty” that the communications systems of flight MH370 were disabled by someone on board the plane, Razak said. Citing evidence from satellite images and radar tracking, Razak said the actions taken before the plane’s disappearance were "consistent with the deliberate action of someone on the plane."

Flight MH370 was on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing last week when it vanished from radars. It was carrying 239 people. Responding to rumors that the Boeing 777 was hijackied, Razak said that this had not been confirmed.

"Despite media reports the plane was hijacked, I wish to be very clear, we are still investigating all possibilities as to what caused MH370 to deviate," Razak said.

Avoiding WWIII

By Peter Koenig

 There Is A Great Risk of WWIII Over Ukraine / Crimea. But it could be avoided if Russia and China act fast, dumping their dollar reserves, breaking the US dollar, thereby breaking the US economy.They don't need all of the BRICS for that.

Mr. Putin knows it, Mr. Xi knows it and Mr. Obama knows it - that Washington is holding the shorter stick.

For more brazen actions by Washington and its European lackeys and puppets?

It’s already widely known that the snipers in Kiev who killed almost 100 people were mercenaries paid for and were following US orders – straight from the US embassy in Kiev.

Blackwater and other US mercenaries – proxy armies - are roaming the streets of Kiev and other Ukrainian western cities who have indicated their desire to stay allied with Russia.

Mr. Putin knows it.

What else is needed to show the empire and its marionettes that they are naked? That they will be severely hurt if they follow Obama's and t…

Russia's Interests in the Ukraine are Reasonable and Need to be Accommodated

By John Pedler

 The 'West' (US, UK and EU) has made many grave mistakes in handling the Ukraine crisis which is one largely of its making - first belittling President Putin's 'frank' but conciliatory speech complaining about 'hyper use of power' by the US at the 2007 Munich security conference. Then following this with G W Bush's proposal in 2008 that both Georgia and the Ukraine should join NATO - breaking the US word to Gorbachev that NATO would not go further East in return for Soviet acceptance of East Germany's membership of NATO. So this confrontation has been brewing since then and no one has bothered to see this coming, let alone do anything about it once G W Bush was gone. 'The West' didn't even learn from the Georgia/Russia war that the same thing could happen over the Ukraine!

Surely the ‘West’ must now very urgently make a proposal that takes into account Russia's interests in its 'Near West' with a deal Russia can…
