Our US correspondent David Millward has reported that American transport officials warned of a potential weak spot in Boeing 777s which could lead to the “loss of structural integrity of the aircraft” four months before the disappearance of Malaysia airlines Flight MH370.

Quote The Federal Aviation Administration in Washington drew up an Airworthiness Directive in November. It was triggered by reports of cracking in the fuselage skin underneath a Boeing aircraft’s satellite antennae.

In its directive the FAA, which is responsible for supervising the safety of American-made aircraft such as Boeing, told airlines to look out for corrosion under the fuselage skin.

This, the FAA said, could lead to a situation where the fuselage was compromised leading to possible rapid decompression as well as the plane breaking up.

With terrorism now appearing less likely as a cause of the Malaysian airlines disaster, which claimed 239 lives, focus has switched to problems with the aircraft or pilot error.

Is Obama Covering Up The Truth About Flight 370? || by Floyd Brown


Obama-Benghazi-SC

Late last week, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disintegrated 30,000 feet over the South China Sea.

And as I’m writing, officials are in full denial mode: “There’s no evidence of terrorism.” Yet this denial is strikingly similar to the statements issued after the Benghazi attacks, the terrorist shooting at Fort Hood, and other suspicious and deadly events during Obama’s tenure.

Officials say they aren’t considering terrorism because there’s a “lack of significant chatter.”

But that’s a short-sighted conclusion for a number of reasons.

Consider this possibility: Maybe the Edward Snowden leaks showed terrorist organizations exactly how they could evade NSA monitoring.

Or, consider this even scarier alternative: Flight 370 was shot down by a terrorist missile. It’s not as outlandish as it seems. On Sunday, Aaron Klein, a reporter working out of Jerusalem for the website WND.com, published an eye-opening report detailing the threat of missiles to civilian airliners. Klein wrote of the Obama administration’s failure to control these controversial Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS.

Klein recalled a speech given by former CIA Director David Petraeus, who warned of a “nightmare” scenario in which a missile – acquired by terrorists – is used to shoot down an airliner full of tourists or business travelers.

How online clues located North Korea’s missile-launcher factories | | COURTESY: CAPT Bill Horn, USN (Ret)

A few seconds of video, literature, a couple of memoirs and Google Earth helped locate a secret North Korean military plant

Image

It’s the stuff of spy thrillers. From a few seconds of video, a handful of images and some satellite pictures, a team of researchers has been able to pinpoint two factories deep inside North Korea where the country assembles its mobile missile launchers.

But what’s perhaps more remarkable is that they did it without any of the classified tools of the intelligence trade: The factories were located by tying together information that was already freely available on the Internet.

This is the world of open-source intelligence.

China’s Type 094 Jin-class ballistic missile submarine will begin to patrol the Western Pacific this year, according to William Cole, a journalist working for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Equipped with JL-2 intercontinental submarine-launched ballistic missiles, the Jin-class is capable of launching a nuclear attack against targets in Alaska and Hawaii, Cole said, citing a report published by the US Office of Naval Intelligence. The advance is unprecedented in China’s submarine threat, putting even the west coast of the US in direct danger, said Jesse Karotkin from the Office of Naval Intelligence.

Invading Muslims kill female Buddhist monk in South Thailand: ‘We will keep killing you as long as you are still on our land’


The Muslim Issue

Thailand has NEVER been a Muslim country. But in their mind it is “their land”. Every land is “their” land. Britain is “their” land. Spain is “their” land. Italy is “their” land. Myanmar is “their” land. Central Africa is “their” land. Israel is “their” land. America is “their” land. The Islamic me-me I take whatever I want syndrome has no end.

Woman shot dead, burnt in Thai deep south ‘revenge attack’

Afp, Bangkok, The Daily Star

A policeman’s wife was shot dead and then set on fire in front of terrified shoppers at a busy market in Thailand’s violence-ridden deep south, officials said yesterday, in an apparent revenge attack.

The 28-year-old Buddhist woman was gunned down on Sunday afternoon as she returned to her car from a market in the Ratapanyang area of Pattani province.

A local police officer said a note left at the scene indicated the attack…
