I am an Airline Pilot and have collected quite a bit of info on this Boeing B777 mystery. You will find insight in my latest blog post:
There is no evidence whatsoever for a terrorist attack right at this point. That is all completely baseless speculation. There are a number of reasons that can have caused this tragedy that do not involve conspiracies.
Baseless conjecture serves no purpose at this point.
There is a real possibility of recovering enough physical evidence, including flight data recorders that can be used to find the real cause.
Fireballs are memorable sights, but not all that rare, not even for pilots. On November 20, only a few weeks after the Sudan meteor, another large object fell toward Earth, this time over Saskatchewan, Canada, east of Edmonton. Among the hundreds who reported seeing the meteor was J.R. Novak, a pilot for Spec Engineering of Calgary, who saw it from his altitude of 9,000 feet as a "flaming red trail" ending in an explosion. Pilot Mark Lavoie likened it to an emergency flare.
That evening, United Parcel Service pilots Mike Meyer and Paul Locraft were on their way home to Anchorage, Alaska, in an MD-11. They were at 37,000 feet near the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan when a fireball as bright as the sun appeared in their windscreen, heading away from them on a parallel course. "We went from a resting heart rate to max heart rate in about two seconds," says Meyer. "I thought it was an airplane that had just turned on its landing light before it was going to hit us. Paul thought it was a missile." It took them only a few seconds to realize that the bright light, already fading to red, was a meteor. But in those few seconds, says Meyer, "we both thought that was our last moment here on Earth."

Though I have the highest respect for your beliefs, these casualties probably had little to do, if at all, with your country's politics especially since most of them were Chinese and foreigners.

It also came on the night after the Malaysian Court of Appeal dished out a kangaroo sentence on the Opposition Leader earlier in the day, so from a superstition point of view, there is "blood debt" to pay for the Malaysian power-that-be elites, sacrifice to make so-to-speak, for such injustice.

The "Trip" has very little composite construction in it. It's mostly standard aircraft aluminum.
As for the Comet, those accidents had nothing to do with the materials , but were caused by having square windows.
