Of course it's all guess work, but if the plane was hijacked why haven't they found it? It's not like a 9/11 situation where they planned to fly into a building. If it was they would of waited until getting to Beijing to start the hijacking.
Also, what good is hijacking a plane just to have it go down in the water without anyone knowing your cause for the hijacking in the first place?
The pilots wouldn't just ditch the plane because it was being hijacked as well.

It's a frustrating case, but I'm sure in time they will figure it out.

Who knows what the hijackers were thinking? If there's one thing I've learned in my 53years, it's that most people are both stupid and irrational.

They know now that the plane DID make a turn and continue to fly, and that couldn't have happened by accident (according to pilots interviewed - there's no accidental circumstance that would cause the transponder to go off and and the plane make a sharp turn, and continue to fly for a good long time without getting any message off).

I agree people can be stupid and irrational, but hijackers usually have a plan, and if their plan was to ditch the plane in the water without anyone knowing their cause, it's a pretty dumb plan.

According to some conspiracy theories, this could lead to a war, since that important person is wanted by a certain country.

What important person is wanted by what country? Who was on that plane that could have led to its disappearance?

Speaking of conspiracy theories... the authorities seemed pretty confident that the stolen passports have nothing to do with this. When there seems to be no answers about anything right now, I don't think we can rule anything out at this point.

We don't know for sure that it was ditched in the water, it could have landed.

As far as no one knowing their cause, that happens sometimes, for example no one took credit for 911 for quite a while. Also, their plan might have gone awry ...... maybe it went down from lack of fuel or some such after flying for a while.

Incapable? Even CIA FBI and INTERPOL and recently PENTAGON involved in this investigation. Are you gonna say they're incompetent as much as Malaysian do? and Chinas keep urging Malaysia without thinking rationally. Malaysia is trying hard to figure whats the problem and wheres the aircraft now, and Chinas keep blaming Malaysia, and what Chinas did was only to show some stupid pictures from satellites which makes more confusion. We Malaysian know that Chinas are frustated with this situation but we also tried hard. Please understand us. TQ.

Typical unprofessional of how government handled a situation leading to many stupid conclusion and theories of conspiracy.

This thread is pretty funny, there's a guy who claimed to be an "inside source": #MH | Malaysia Airlines / MASWings - Page 198 - SkyscraperCity
Since when it was changed from 1pm to 2pm? Theres so much speculations from all over the world, and what they did was to insult Malaysia like madman. Oh please understand that we Malaysians didnt even want this incident to occur. If this happened to other country, are they capable to handle this great frustation? Nope. So please updated yourself with trusted news and think wise please. No offend.
