I wouldn't exactly say it has flowing water on the surface, but I would definitely agree that underground there is both liquid and frozen water. I also believe that bacterial life probably exists where the ice/water exists.
I believe Mars is habitable, and habitated. Has flowing water, and flora.
Who's suppressing it? NASA releases the information on their website, it's made public, nobody's hiding it. If anything, the mainstream media is at fault for wasting people's time with BS stories, such as the Royal Wedding or Casey Anthony, that distract us from the real groundbreaking discoveries that everybody should be interested in.
I believe the reason this Mars information is supressed and ridiculed, is because when our world "ends", like some big event, the "chosen elites" will go to Mars to escape. That's why this information about life and water on Mars cannot be allowed to come out.
Although, I cannot help but laugh at the current theories about life on Mars. I mean, current life on Mars. I can't believe that people actually think that there are aliens on that planet, living out their lives.
Elsewhere in the universe, yes, for sure. But not on Mars, not without space craft.

...I'm still in the camp that liquid water didn't ever flow on Mars, for whatever that is worth. Liquid water simply can't exist on the surface of Mars, I believe those signatures are from something else, respectfully.
It's funny that you say that, because at the end of The Universe episode, an astronomer said that we will never truly know just how much water is underneath the surface and if life exists until humans are actually there. Until we set up a system of actually doing some serious digging and drilling, we will only have surface clues that indicate whether or not life/water are present.
This answer could be answered if we are able to get a lander with heavy duty digger or auger to drill into the soil. Just with those tires, it revealed ice water and salts. It would be even better if we could get people onto the planet, but that is still far off
I've never heard of that theory, but I've heard a similar one that the asteroid belt most likely came from a destroyed or failed planet. I would find your theory more believable that it was actually flipped; Mars had a moon that was destroyed and it formed the asteroid belt. I feel that Mars is too big to be a moon of an inner planet, but I could be wrong, because there's a moon in our solar system, Ganymede I think, that's MUCH bigger than Earth's moon.
I believe and others have too (Richard Hoagland, etc.) that Mars was a moon of a planet that exploded (which formed much of the asteroid belt and threw debris around the system, wonder about the asteroids that made the dinosaurs extinct).
Water is one answer. Lava flows is another possible answer. Using our own Moon as an example, the side of the Moon that faces the Earth has fewer visible impact craters because lava flows the created the "mare" has flattened out that part of the surface (and, no, it's not because the Earth was shielding that side of the Moon. The Earth is too far from the Moon to make that big a difference). Having said that, I believe water once flowed freely on Mars, possibly creating seas or even oceans.

Awesome post OP. I for one am a firm believer that Nasa is not telling us truth about what has been found on Mars, big shock, I know. I remember one time seeing a phtograph from one of the Mars rovers that depicted blue skies and brown soil. Nasa immediately cut the broadcast and returned with a false orange color enhanced version of the same photo.
