Very interesting read indeed
But I Wonder why country's radars just extend to the limits of territory. If you're a military, you want to see them before they enter your air space. Can someone enlighten me on this topic. I thought radar were overlapping each other on land, going beyond borders.

As much as I love the fact you like to only single out the US, your flaw is the fact Diego Garcia is not a US military base. It is a British military base which has an American contingent so you would need to include the British in your plan.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was a Boeing 777-200ER. The 777-200ER's use Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines which are usually leased (by the mile) thru Rolls-Royce to save Boeing money in assembly costs. The lease option comes with a maintenence package which includes real-time 24/7 monitoring, using sophisticated built-in electronics/sensors, by Rolls-Royce Monitoring Center technical engineering staff capable of recognizing even repairing and troubleshooting most any situation that may occur related to the Trent 800 power plant. This includes 24/7 GPS monitoring of engines anywhere in the world. So if a problem is at a critical stage, an aircraft can be redirected to the nearest safe landing location available for repairs. They know, and have known, exactly where that jet is. They've known all along. Start this YouTube video at 13:00 and see for yourself...

The EHMS doesn't come with GPS monitoring. Rolls Royce doesn't care about where the aircraft is, only the health of the engines.
