Have you ever heard of flight termination system? (Former president Bush talked about it during a news conference and was quickly scolded about it). And that an AWACs airplane was flying nearby where radar contact was lost? And that the possible place where it ditched was not far away from Diego Garcia where the AWACs plane could have landed when mission was accomplished? Like Gen Stubblebine said on 9/11, it is just a dot.

Where I come from politicians go to cemeteries only when they need to bury someone. That is.
I am also go when somebody dies. I never go back for any other reason. For the dead are just that, dead. They know nothing, they feel nothing, and they are conscious of nothing.

This is a new episode of the drama "as the World turns". All a pretense when the planners know every piece of information about it. The media feeds garbage to the people, garbage is what they believe.

If the emperor bows, an equal bow is ok. Else, I think the best thing to do is to shake hands, then give him a nice hug. The poor guys needs it. He has been in a thankless job for so many years and it is expected to continue doing it until he dies. I do not envy him a bit.
Posted in: U.S. President Barack Obama will meet Emperor Akihito in Tokyo on April 24. Last time Obama met the emperor in Japan, in 2009, he shook hands and bowed, which upset some members in the U.S. Congress and media. Do you see anything wrong with him bowing to the emperor?

Check Benjamin Fulford's report on the relationship between Heizo Takenaka and the March Eleven Fukushima earthquake. According to him, Mr. Takenaka had handed control over the Japan's financial reserves to a handful of American and European oligarchs. It looks to me that Japan's finances are already under the control of few World bankers.

Whether you call Sales Tax or Valued Added Tax, it is just another way of politicians adding injury to the poor, underprivileged and working class. It just exempts the rich and privileged from owning a fair share of the tax burden. That is, a proportional burden. Income tax is the best way, though not perfect, to address fair taxation.

Well, did the ELT get activated and sent the signal to Immarsat?
Why fly so close to Diego Garcia and then disappear?
They have hangars big enough at Diego Garcia to hide the plane.
They also have plenty of billeting space for all passengers and crew.
