Missing Malaysia Plane Changed Course
Note the Malaysian military now says they search north and east of Vietnam is futile because...
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday.
In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew.
Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.
"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the senior military officer, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.
They also report that the planes transponders were off after the course change, which would put the plane on course for Indonesia. Either Banda Aceh or Medan being the nearby large cities. After you pass Indonesia there is nothing but open water for thousands of miles, the next land being Extreme Southern India then Somalia or slightly more to the North Yemen.
As for the terrorist connection and speculation about Iran, there have been recent acts of terrorism in Indochina against mostly Jewish targets attributed to Iran. But the only motive I can think of at the time is Iran attempting to assist its patron Russia by distracting the West from Ukraine. If so it worked.
The plane flying with the transponder off points very much to either foul play or Space Aliens.
The Space Aliens have denied any involvement.
If the destination was Indonesia or East Africa then you have to add various other Sunni terrorist groups to the mix of suspects as well as Iran.
There are reports that some debris near Hong Kong is being investigated.
Once the plane is found the "What?" will be known. The "Who?" may be more difficult unless there is evidence on the cockpit voice recorder indicating who took control of the plane and what their demands were.
I would think answers to those questions will be quite some time in coming.

Libyan Civil War Not Quite Over
The al-Qaeda supporting rebels of Eastern Libya -- who fought gave al-Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi a hero's funeral and started a war to topple the Gaddafi regime (aka, Bronco Bamma's freedom fighters) -- are now fighting a war for oil against the new Libyan state.
Libya on Monday stopped a North Korean-flagged tanker that had loaded oil from a rebel-held port, after naval forces briefly exchanged fire with the rebels, officials said.I'm like totally 100% shocked by these developments.
They also said the government will assemble forces to "liberate" all occupied ports, raising the stakes over a blockage that has cut off vital oil revenue.
The conflict over oil wealth is increasing fears that the OPEC producer may slide deeper into chaos or even splinter as the fragile government fails to rein in dozens of militias that helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but now defy state authority.
The rebels, who have seized three ports and partly control a fourth in the North African country, said they had dispatched forces to central Libya to deal with any government attack.
On the bright side, now Libyan terrorist groups have direct access to a lot of oil money. Yay!
ISIS Commander Abu Khaled Smoking Too Much Crack?
After making Syria into the new Afghanistan Abu Khaled, an ISIS commander, says in interview he intends to establish an Islamic caliphate in Syria:
"The aim of the ISIL is to set up an Islamic Caliphate that will attract Muslims from all over the world"Attract Muslims from all over the world?
Surely, he just means like only the Muslims who are really super eager to be tortured and beheaded for calling their Great Aunt in Ultra Zionist Dearbornistan Michigan?
Good luck with that.

Tens of Thousands of Foreign Students Missing
I was recently visiting another college campus when I noticed a whole bunch of foreign students. I brought this up to the person showing me around and they mentioned that they have a big ESL (English as a Second Language) program on campus that they're quite proud of. It's a little known aspect of many schools, but administrators look to foreign students (especially the Chinese, these days) as cash cows. They pay out of state tuition and on top of that do it in cash. They especially love it when these students pass the TOEFL test and then matriculate into graduate programs, which on top of out of the already higher out of state tuition also charge more for tuition generally.
The point? So, we're talking about this when my guide mentions that right after 9/11 they lost a lot of students but they're back up to full numbers now.
The students were from the wealthy Gulf States. UAE, Oman ... Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabian students: what could possibly go wrong?
The federal government has lost track of tens of thousands of foreign students who came to the U.S. to study and then took jobs, often in violation of the terms of their visas, according to a new internal audit.That's tens of thousands of students they can't account for, not thousands. And we're supposed to trust these people with immigration reform.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement doesn’t even consistently collect information or have the tools to monitor all of the foreign students who take part in the optional practical training (OPT) program, the Government Accountability Office said in a new report released late Friday.
Congratulations to Dear Leader on Election, Victory Over Reactionary Counter-Revolutionary Forces
We offer warm congratulations to the Dear Leader on his electoral victory:
With no one else on the ballot, state media reported Monday that supreme leader Kim Jong Un was not only elected to the highest legislative body in North Korea, he won with the unanimous approval of his district, which had 100% turnout.In related news, I was listening to the Dianne Rhem show this morning where a panel of experts was talking about Obama's handling of the Crimean crisis. Two of the three panelist said he was doing a B-/C+ job, while the guy from Harvard passed on the opportunity to assign a grade.
How does this relate to North Korea? Even on our own national socialist public airwaves dissent and criticism is allowed. And by dissent and criticism we mean giving Obama something less than an A+++.
Anti-Israeli Activists Show Tolerance, Engage in Meaningful Dialogue at NUI Galway
The headline? Yeah, it just might be a tad misleading. What, you think any one in the BDS movement ever engages in "dialogue"? Dialogue to these people means you sit there and listen to them berate you. If you open your mouth you're a fascist not interested in meaningful engagement.
Thanks to Paul

DHS Approves Of Public Stonings
The Department of Homeland Security has forbidden border agents from defending themselves against rock throwers:
Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.
“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. [...]
The new rules were issued at the direction of Jeh Johnston, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security.
The rules match the recommendation of a report by an advocacy group that wants to reduce policing of illegal immigration.
The commissioned report was challenged by mid-level DHS officials, who argued that the rules barring self-defense from rock-throwers “could create a more dangerous environment [especially for agents operating] in rural or desolate areas, often alone, where concealment, cover and egress is not an option,” according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
But Johnston overrode the internal response, and forced the implementation of the advocacy groups’ recommendations.
