To understand the mystery behind Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 we first need to step back in time to remind ourselves of the war that nearly was between Syria and the USA (plus allies). For a while, it looked like an “intervention” in the Arab nation was slam dunk until the British parliament voted against supporting the USA in this endeavour.
This was not as it seemed. The vote against was close; 285 to 272, with several members of the ruling coalition defying party lines and voting against the government….. as secretly requested by the US President via the CIA. The numbers of rebels needed to be significant to make the rebellion look credible.
But why did the USA request David Cameron to “throw” the vote? Because the imperative to invade Syria had passed; the prize had moved out of her borders.
For decades now, Syria’s ally, Russia, had been using the Syrian desert to the west of the Euphrates as a military laboratory location with the critically important attribute of being “plausibly deniable”. Some of the breakthroughs made there had been low-level; the discreet delivery mechanism used to poison Alexander Litvinenko with polonium-210, for example. In recent years, the scientists had been setting their ambitions at a higher and more global scale. The rumours on “the grid” have been sketchy at what exactly had been developed, outlandish descriptions of space technology with nascent “terra-forming” qualities, through DNA-specific weapons and other similar Sci-Fi dreams have been murmured. But probably the most likely, given Russia’s reliance on allies for her energy security, is a breakthrough in the generation of non-fossil fuel energy.
What we do know from the exponential increase in traffic, both physical and communications, between Moscow and Damascus is that a significant discovery or invention had occurred.
“Eyes on the Prize”
This activity had not gone unnoticed by the USA and China, both of whom could neither afford to be left behind in the global energy race nor allow a potentially hostile country to overtake them . The country with cheapest and most abundant energy source “wins” in global economic and influence terms. China acted first.
Using the ongoing civil war in Syria as cover, Chinese special forces staged an audacious attack on the well-guarded facility, abducting the dozen or so key Russian scientists and disposing of the remainder. The research facility was destroyed.
The intelligence received by the CIA following this incursion resulted in the request for the UK government to deliberately lose the planned vote to enter Syria.
The CIA then launched an aggressive manhunt to capture the missing scientists and eliminate their Chinese hosts. The US aircraft carrier Nimitz enforced an unofficial no-fly zone over Syrian airspace during this period to ensure a direct escape to China was impossible.
In the meantime, the loss of technology directly influenced Putin’s decision to annex The Crimea.
Unable to fly from Syrian airspace, the Chinese made their exit overland through Iraq and into Saudi Arabia.
Under the guise of being a returning party of Haj pilgrims, the group boarded a chartered flight to Kuala Lumpur, a “soft route” back home to Beijing.
With significantly better intelligence than was gathered at the start of the exercise, the CIA tracked the team from their ally, Saudi Arabia. With hours to spare, a replica Malaysian Airlines 777 was switched for the plane which, on its next flight, would be used for the MH370 Kuala Lumpur to Beijing route. Modifications were made to enable mid-air refuelling and to allow a Navy Seals team to hide within the cargo hold.
The escaping party and their heavily sedated prisoners boarded the chartered flight unaware that it was 100% crewed by CIA operatives. Following take off, the plane ascending rapidly to above the normal operating ceiling for 777s, cabin pressure was slowly reduced until narcosis was induced. Navy Seals with oxygen masks then administered oxygen to the Russian scientists and civilians The Chinese special forces were left to slip into a coma and were restrained. Cabin pressure was returned.
The flight was then refuelled and, after ensuring all transponders were disabled, flown beneath the radar to assume a direct course for a secret CIA offshore processing centre, still in use from the Extraordinary Rendition programme.
If you are friends or family of those missing on flight MH370 and you have just read the above, I apologise. Your loved ones are dead. They died either through an aviation accident or a malicious act.
They are not sitting on a Maldives beach.
The speculation by those motivated to sell newspapers and advertising space is vulgar.
Rest in Peace.
