Over the past two weeks I have collected many of the statements uttered by talking heads usually immediately after uttering the phrase, “We don’t want to speculate.” Here are some that I have heard or seen
Meteor strike,Weaponization,Encounter of the III kind, other supernatural phenomena,Lithium batteries, false oil slicks,tail section found, Plane parts floating,religious terrorists, pilot suicide, Flight engineer did it, pilot did it, co pilot did it, passenger did it, on the radar, not on the radar, climbed to 45000 feet, flew below 5000 feet, flew under another plane to avoid radar,Taliban did it, Acars turned off Acars not turned off, time anomalies, Transponder off no one noticed, somewhere in 27000 sq miles of ocean, 4,000,000 sq miles of ocean, now 6,000,000 sq miles of ocean, plane flew for four hours, plane flew for 5 hours, plane flew for 7 hours,skilled pilot at the wheel, flown by a remote computer, cockpit fire, catastrophic cockpit accident, someone set course into auto pilot and then killed all officers and himself ……. the list goes on. Some pundit noted that a big event with no smoking gun in a 24 hour cable news atmosphere is like a blind man lighting a match in a garage full of leaking gasoline containers…. nobody knows exactly when it is going to explode or how it happened but everyone has an idea and wants to share it.
Applying Ockham’s razor I would guess that the plane is at the bottom of the deep and isolated southern Indian Ocean as that is the simplest answer. If it will be found and how it got there may take years to determine if it is ever determined, particularly if there was a pilot in control who ditched it, nearly out of fuel, with some effectiveness leaving the plane to sink as one large piece with little detectable debris on the surface. aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhh more speculation!
