Yeah I don't think this wreck will be found until things cool off and it's almost forgotten. Then they can put a junker out there somewhere and claim it was this flight. Well that is if it's even necessary at that point. We all might be preoccupied with something else a bit more troubling by then. But if anyone finds it now, it will be the Chinese.

on the 11pm news right now..newscaster says the families are calling and the phones are still ringing...still talking about the pilot having pretty ladies in the cockpit on an earlier flight....that's all they said
That is ridiculous to think a "junker" would fool anyone, no matter when it is found.
And do you get 60 hours of battery life with your cellphone? Do you know anyone that does?
International roaming often leads to a phone ringing even when the phone is off or not in range of service.
You cannot fool air investigators with any-old-airframe to be a B-777.
Are you speculating, or stating fact? Please make that clear.
I'm saying someone will take a picture of a plane coming out of the water and then they'll lie thru their teeth to us. Is that plain and simple enough?

My question is who would that benefit? In this day and age of manipulating false flags, why would an Iranian terrorist link be hushed up if there was one? Wouldn't it be more probable that it would be used in the MSM as more propaganda?
Thanks for asking, and I will do my best to answer.
The terrorism front has not just been downplayed in the US, but other countries are following our lead. The mental health aspect has been a broadbased discussion across many countries.
An article was even linked, just recently, above this response. When I read that article, which I admittedly browsed, I got to one point where it was even stated that if it was deemed to be terrorism, some of the insurance wouldn't get paid. Thereby, they have even more motivation to change the optics to the mental illness vision. I will link the article and quote pertinent sections.
With the Fort Hood incident, it was the opposite. The government would have been held more responsible, and the payouts would have been higher for the victims' families. This was the reason for the outrage after the attack.
There are multiple reasons to downplay the terrorism aspect, and draw attention to the mental health aspect.
Also, please note that sheer accidental death is the *last* thing on the list, because this would denote at least some extent on someones' behalf, of negilgence. Either in repairs and upkeep, or some failure of a responsible party to do something, and failed to do it.
Mental illness leaves everyone free of responsibility, how could we know? He seemed so normal! He was such a nice guy, we never saw this coming! It's the easiest, cleanest, and least costly way for all involved. Best of all, the pilot is no longer here to defend himself.
Hoping this makes sense. Now for that article:
Further compensation from Malaysia
Airlines depends on the reason for the
accident. If it is established that the disaster
resulted from a mistake by the airline, the
compensation could be huge, said Hao.
"If it turns out to be a terrorist attack, some
travel insurance policies may not apply. But
the families of those who purchased life or
accident policies would get compensation
under any circumstances," Hao said.
