UPDATE [12:37]: Tuoi Tre, a leading daily in Vietnam, reports that the Vietnamese Navy has confirmed the plane crashed into the ocean. According to Navy Admiral Ngo Van Phat, Commander of the Region 5, military radar recorded that the plane crashed into the sea at a location 153 miles South of Phu Quoc island.

When contacted, Malaysia Airlines declined to confirm or deny the reports, saying that the Malaysian authorities are working together with the Vietnamese government on the matter.

Possible test of some electronic weapon by the Chinese? See if they could EMP a plane.

Most probably catastrophic failure of the aircraft, either due to malfunction (not likely) or induced.

My own opinion at this point is that it was induced and probably terrorism.

But we shall have to wait and see what the black box teels them.

The will find debris out there soon.

The question still stands.... in fact, if what you say is true, that might even make it more likely.

Could this be the needed ‘diversion’ to shift people’s eyes away from Obama’s cratering, ongoing failure in the Ukrainian Conflict? I expect that group to cook up something strong, to force a shirt in news focus for a week or two.

And the speculation/ guessing becomes part of our culture ... did this, or that or who made this happen. Conspiracy’s will abound.

Could be a mechanical problem, after all, they do happen.

Of course a simple mechanical problem would not feed controversy.

I, for one, will wait and see what the official pronouncement comes of the official investigation.

If it is an Islamic thing, I’m sure someone or some group will claim responsibility soon, otherwise I will wait before making judgment.

Or maybe it was accidently shot down. There’s been a lot of tension in that area with China, Vietnam, PI, over territorial waters.

Your area is too far north. Drop down another 2X to just south of the CaMau cape. 255 km south of Pho Quoc Is.

i would guess that that is the more probable scenario,especially being it went down pretty fast,no one could even make a cell call.

This flight did originate out of a country with the largest population of Muslims in the world.

No, it did not. It departed from Malaysia, not Indonesia.
