They are worried that the trade pact will deny people access to affordable medicine despite government assurances that national interests will not be jeopardized. The protesters are hoping that Prime Minister Najib Razak will stand firm and not be pressured ahead of US President Obama's upcoming visit to Malaysia. Dressed up as zombies, the protesters are trying to paint a grim picture of what will happen if Malaysia becomes a part of the agreement. These activists believe that the people will suffer as prices of drugs will spiral, and access to affordable health-care is denied as a result of monopoly and patent extension. The TPP is a multilateral free trade agreement currently being negotiated by 12 countries.
And then there is the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, of which Najib previously was a major supporter. The TPP is not particularly popular among Malaysians, and is not popular among the more conservative parts of Najib’s ruling coalition; Mahathir is publicly calling for the Malaysian government to drop TPP entirely. Najib himself has been backtracking on his previous pro-TPP rhetoric. TPP is still far from being wrapped up, and has many outstanding issues unrelated to Malaysia, including a lack of support for TPP in the U.S. Congress as well. But the changing political climate in Malaysia, and the increasingly tepid support for the agreement in the ruling coalition, is not helping pass the deal. Obama will not be able to tout TPP in Kuala Lumpur either.

I keep trying to understand why the Malaysian air force did not intercept the jet when it flew over Malaysia. Were they asleep? Could not care less?
Has anyone got any ideas?

I noticed you're ignoring replies now. So which is it. Was it a real flight that disappeared, or was it faked? You can't have it both ways.

Per your post data
It certainly looks like if the plane turned east then south out of Viet ATC space it would be right on the southern arc developed from the sat data.

I wont be moving any goals you argumentative pratt!!
Even if they find the plane aand the BB's you will never no the real truth behind this episode.
If you think that you will be told the truth and the whole truth then you are a blind dimwit!!
Whatever happened the whole truth will never be told to the public. It never is!
Like I said sh.t stinks! And brown aint green and nor am I. You can please yourself!
Find some real nut to argue with.
You have already moved the goal posts and you have already made up your mind. You have stated plainly that "even if they find the plane and the bodies you will never get the whole story." You clearly have no interest in knowing the truth because you have already made up your mind. And way to resort to name-calling, lol...butthurt much?

The claims now being made include that it was in Vietnamese airspace for 15-20 minutes before turning, and it climbed as high as 39,000 feet.
