Firstly, I'm quite surprised how quickly this has gone from the media. With so many questions that have not been answered I find it quite baffling.
Usually I don't tend to believe a lot of these conspiracy theories but one thing so far I do believe is that 1 or more countries is somehow involved in one way or another whether that be with the actual disappearance or some kind of cover up. I don't understand the reasons for the lack of transparency from a few countries.
Personally I do not think this plane crashed into the ocean. I know the ocean is large but with today's technology I find it quite hard to believe this plane has not been found. Planes are pretty big and I would guess if it crashed into the sea that would happen at a high speed which is inevitably going to smash up the plane a little at least and every single part of this plane has sunk to the bottom of the ocean and still not been to be found? Really? Sorry it doesn't wash with me.
There's so many thing wrong about this in my mind, the Malaysian authorities seem to be to be quite incompetent in so many ways. I also feel the US could of done much more, I got the impression they didn't want to help.
I have read the Australians will not release the data from the "ping" signals they received. Why the hell not? I don't really understand how the pings work but I think they are not from MH370. They were probably from a Submarine or something maybe even by some country trying to keep the goose chase going, Who knows!?!!
I think the plane was hijacked, possibly not by anyone on board the plane and it landed I don't think its as hard to hide a plane as some people have suggested.
It's pretty good, but I'd think that as a pilot he'd be less inclined to point a finger at pilots, especially those with a record as spotless as he claims.

There is also quite a good interview with a former Chief Pilot of Malaysian Airways which can be downloaded if you wish too.
Because that doesn't seem to be repeated in any English sources, it's questionable, though I don't really know how reliable chinatimes is as a source. Lately I don't trust CNN much either.
Malaysia Airlines passenger plane lost, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and other 5 countries participate in search and rescue. Malaysia, and Viet Nam have dispatched planes to lock lost sea search. United States cable news network (CNN) reported in real time, a Vietnam search-and-rescue aircraft already in Malaysia and Vietnam border Sea oil and debris.
In addition, the United States Embassy said 2:43 A.M. US troops are stationed in Thailand military base Fort UTA had been listening to a Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 the SOS emergency call signals, aircraft pilots call the cabin faced collapse, they're going to crash. Current US forces in Thailand to Malaysia to provide the signal.

Also doesn't the "mumbling" suggest a possibility that the pilots may have been partially incapacitated, like maybe from hypoxia perhaps? Couldn't mumbling be a sign of hypoxia?
I hear a lot of people saying that a fire that would take out the transponder and radio would also take out the flight control systems, and my response to that is, maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't. But since it's not designed to have fires, predicting the exact consequences of some unexpected fire is beyond the abilities of most people.

With my experience and knowledge of the B777 systems the flight control systems would probably last longest in case of a fire.
I doubt that, more likely that the pilots were busy managing whatever emergency they were facing.
In an emergency communication is the last point on the list.

2:42 puts it south of Malaysia, based on the speculated track. If the US embassy story was true wouldn't we have heard more of it. Also flying off course for over an hour and no other radio calls in that hour+ time that anyone heard. Suspicious.

I dont want to start another thread on this subject, but does anyone think that MH370 may have been on it's way to smash into the Petronas Towers and the Military took it down somewhere either in the Andaman Or south China Sea..Just a Thought.
