In Theory: What if flight MH370 was Shot Down by Malaysian Military

A growing number of theories begin to arise when no substantial answer is given. Some have suggested aliens took the plane, others suggested a black hole appeared from nowhere and swallowed them up, and others well take a more practical view. According to one particular person, a theory not as widely explored, is the possibility of Malaysian or other military planes shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370). Here is the case:

A Boeing 777 plane with 239 people on board with a captain, 53 year old Zaharie Ahmad Shah with 18,365 flight hours, and co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid, 27, with 2,763 flying hours who was transitioning to the Boeing 777-200 (after finishing training in a flight simulator) disappeared on March 8th 2014.

Military Intervention Theory:

“As the plane was traveling to Beijing, a shift happened. According to reports, it changed directions and headed a different direction (maybe towards a target). The plane climbed to heights of 55,000 feet, (supposedly) stalled, and went down to a low of 5000 feet, a dangerous flying technique called “terrain masking.” It is assumed that such a maneuver would have captured the attention of military. If this acrobat didn’t draw suspension maybe flying directly towards a “target” would have alerted the military to address flight MH370 with a warning to turn around, and/or ground the plane. In this theory, whoever was flying the plane didn’t heed to the warning and the plane was possibly shot down. Stuck between a rock and a hard place what is the military to do? Allow the plane to kill thousands, or destroy hundreds to save thousands? The military taking notice decides to intervene destroying the plane before the terrorist reached their target and has made excuses to cover themselves.”

In the case of terrorist attack against America on September 11th 2001, if the U.S. Military knew of a plane heading towards the twin towers, and it not taking heed to their repeated warnings of turning the plane around or grounding the plane, what option(s) does the military have? The choice between two evils exist and the terrifying outcome doesn’t cause anyone to win.

So what if the scenario repeated itself with MH370? Is it possible that the Malaysian Military was placed between a rock and a hard place? Would the destruction of the plane account for the lost of transmission and tracking devices? Was it the terrorist or the captain who said, “All right, good night?” And was it said so calmly that one of them knew what was about to happen because they refused to heed to military commands?

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, took off from Kuala Lumpur at 12:41 a.m. heading toward Beijing. Last contact with ground controllers was less than an hour after flight, and at least 35,000 feet in the air. CBS news reported that at this height the plane was somewhere between the east coast of Malaysia and Vietnam. The final signal from the plane was at 2:40 a.m. according to Gen. Rodzali Daud, Malaysia’s air force chief. He said that the plane was near Pulau Perak, “a busy waterway that separates the western coast of Malaysia and Indonesia’s Sumatra Island. The plane descended to 29,528 feet, “after that,” the General continues, “the signal from the plane was lost.” Confirmed by a high-ranking military official Gen. Rodzali’s statement was secured. Ironically, the Malaysian government was uncertain of the military’s report. A spokesman for the prime minister’s office, Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad told the New York Times that there was no evidence the plane made it to the Malacca Strait. The comments by the military were “not true.”

CBS reported that authorities said the plane “may have tried to turn back to Kuala Lumpur” but it would not do so “without informing ground control.” Such confusion has not be absent in this case of the missing plane as even reported by The Global Times, a widely read Chinese tabloid said, that “information issued publicly from Malaysia had been extraordinarily chaotic.” According to Pamela Meyer, founder and CEO of Calibrate, a leading deception detection and training company, reveals four tips to Forbes in spotting a liar. However, in this article, we will only focus on one of those tips.

Meyer points out that researchers who study deception find that extroverts lie more than introverts, and that “those in power tend to be more comfortable lying.” She states that lies fall into two categories: offensive lies and defensive ones. An example of an offensive lie is much like manipulation to get what one wants, or to create a positive impression. A defensive lie is “telling an untruth to avoid punishment or embarrassment or to protect someone else.”

Could the confusion between the Malaysian government and its Military be perceived as one party lying to the other? If the world continues to get information from the Malaysian military, is it possible that there will be an ongoing misdirection of information?

This is only a hypothesis and should be taken as such. It is an attempt to bring a new understanding to a sad and unfortunate situation. Prayers and tears go before God day and night for the passengers of MH370, and for justice. This is my prayer and hope that God will reveal the truth and set free the hurt hearts and heal the wounds of thousands around the world.
