Well, the mystery of Malaysia Airlines flight #370 is over – at least according to the country\’s Prime Minister, Najib Razak, who has just announced:
“(It has been) concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor and that it\’s last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore, with deep sadness and regret, that I must inform you that according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”
And Malaysia Airlines, which has chimed in with this statement:
“We deeply regret that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board have survived”.
Are Prime Minister Razak and Malaysia Airlines correct?
It\’s possible that they are – just as it is possible that the broken watch in your excrement-drawer, the one you aren\’t exactly sure why you\’re keeping since it doesn\’t work anymore, will have the correct time if you look at it right now. But would you count on it?
Let\’s just say that if something that a Malaysian official – from either the government or the airline – says about flight #370 that turns out to be correct, it will be one of the only times it happened since the plane went missing.
Me? I\’ll wait for concrete evidence – or, at the very least, speculation from some other source.
