Default The General News Thread

Somewhere to chat about the news of today that may not merit a thread of its own.

So what really happened with the missing Malaysian plane? Terrorist attack? Crashed in the sea? Abducted by UFO mothership?

I'll take the Alien theory, failing that, it crashed in the jungle of South Vietnam.

If they were terrorists then they were not very good ones. The whole point is to publicise your cause

Ah, and I was thinking this was a thread for news about Generals in the Army.

I feel cheated now.

With this Malaysian plane situation I can't help but think of "Lost".

Whatever 'spooky' going-on's have occurred with this plane, governments will turn up some kind of 'wreckage' in the next few months to put the story to bed. It's hard to believe in our day and age that a plane can disappear into a 'aeronautical black hole' or vanish without trace, especially with the US and China involved in the search.

Nothing like a good conspiracy!

Whilst there is nothing at all humorous about the whole Malaysian aeroplane situation, I couldn't help but smile at this:

Agreed, I need to see the manifest and see if a Jack Shepard was a passenger

Well it looks like the stolen passport thing may not be anything after all. At least one seems to have been an Iranian looking to emigrate to Germany on false documents.
