I wonder what the authorities are waiting to expand on this line. The more they wait, the less likely it is that they will find the jet or its occupants. I wonder what they are waiting to upgrade this into a terrorism investigation, send a few aircraft carriers and start a major search action going through island after island.
250 people, mostly Chinese, aren't worth it, so let's let these pirates have their way?
Next thing we know this becomes the new hype...
If they want to look for a wreckage, they can do that later. The people would be dead already, so even if they find it, it wouldn't be such a big achievement.
I guess that there must be a reason why KUL-PEK was chosen over KUL-BOM.
One of the reasons could be the fact that they would win a few days as the search would start at the wrong place... if that was the aim, they succeeded.
