The investigation is currently focusing on an engine explosion.
While the British PM announces that terrorism seems more likely than not now.
Commentators on British TV media are saying they believe this comes from new intelligence in intercepted communications. Before that, it seemed that
terrorism was 'just a possibility'. Previously, at the most made of this possibility - it was as likely as not the cause. It was typically presented
as a lesser possibility than technical faults.
So there must be something worth taking seriously.
On the other hand, roles might just be conforming to their types. The Russian airline, of course, insists no accident. The Russian govt., not wanting
to alarm their people, of course say terrorism is unlikely. The Egyptians, not wanting to affect their tourism, of course say suggestions of foul play
from some sources are just idle propaganda. Meanwhile, David Cameron, who many see as big world mafia successor to Tony Blair and George Bush, true to
form, thinks "we could squeeze this one into the War on Terror and, a bonus, crush the British economy further with tourist industry restrictions".
Back on the other hand again, the security investigations and flight restrictions where there are indications this could have been a bomb, show that
the British are the only ones taking this as seriously as it deserves. The Russians ought to be doing the same. (Egypt is hardly being thoughtful!)
Another possibility is that Russia's own intelligence concurs with the British and USA (who also think terrorism is more likely than not), but has
decided there is more benefit in denying this and covering this up.
