MH 370: AIR FORCE CHIEF SHOULD BE COURT MARTIALLED?

by a flying carpet and two coconuts, Donplaypuks® intrepid crocodile slap bomoh (shaman) correspondent for missing commercial aircraft affairs at http://donplaypuks.blogspot.com

 
Despite my loathing for Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, his Government of Thieves and his cousin, Defence Minister and Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein (dubbed Kerismidin for his racist, threatening and menacing keris waving antics at the 2005 UMNO General Assembly), I concede graciously that the duo are sincere when they say "we will leave no stone unturned...do everything to resolve the frightening mystery of missing flight MH370...help the families of the missing 227 passengers and 12 crew members."

Make no mistake, with passengers from some 15 countries missing, 156 of whom are from China, the whole world is watching. And so far, if we were to judge our Ministers and various aviation and military authorities involved in this ongoing saga from their performances in front of the TV cameras, an 'F' grading would not be far off the mark.

For Kerismudin to scold the press, local and foreign, that "it's only confusing if you want to see it as confusing" is the kind of false bravado and arrogance we have come to expect from a 3rd rate Minister and politician. That UMNO continues to field the clueless Kerismudin as someone who can handle two Ministerial portfolios, when he reached his Peter's Principle #1 level as a rank-and-file UMNO member, is mute testimony to the fact that UMNO lost the plot decades ago. Kerismudin had the cheek to look annoyed, when within the space of five days, he and his "team" u-turned on a number of statements and "strategies", and after five days, switched the search and rescue operations from the waters of the South China Sea to the Indian Ocean, completely in the direction opposite to that from which they started!

Which brings us to the statement first released on 11 March by Berita Harian, a Malay language daily newspaper owned and controlled by UMNO. It quoted our Air Force chief General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud as saying that MH370 had been detected by military radar as a "plot blip" at 2.15 a.m. on Sunday 8 March. The "plot blip" finally went off the military radar screen at 2.40 a.m. over the Straits of Melaka, north west of Penang Island.

Mind you, MAS itself had at first announced that MH370 disappeared off its radar screens at 2.40 a.m. on 8 March over the South China Sea, and then corrected it to 1.30 a.m.

General Daud claimed that he had been misquoted by Berita Harian, and then promptly confirmed the next day that what the Berita Harian had reported was pretty much spot on!!

In simple terms, what this means is that some military personnel at the radar stations at Kota Baru in the east coast, and Penang on the west coast:

1. Were not at their posts when they should have been
2. Or, were sleeping on the job
3. Or, were awake, saw a UFO blip on their screens and went to sleep without alerting their superiors
4. Or, reported their findings to their superiors who dismissed it as fatuous and went back to sleep

AND

5. No one followed the national security SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) and scrambled our fighter jets. Imagine, the lives that could have been saved or expenses mitigated had our jets been released for visual sighting and action on the UFO. Imagine too the horror if some misguided terrorist on board MH370 had tragetted ramming into Petronas Twin Towers!!

Worse, do we  have uninterrupted and vigilant 24-hour radar watch over our air space or not, General Daud?

Because, General Daud also said that the search for the "plot blip" was only initiated some hours after MH 370 went missing and the military was told to look at the possibility of MH370 having doubled back and flown towards the Straits of Melaka, based on foreign intelligence.

When questioned why air force jets were not scrambled in real time to investigate the phenomenon, General Daud replied that such action would only have been initiated if the "plot blip" had been determined to be "hostile." 

Huh? Military radar can do that? Determine from a mere "plot blip" whether a UFO is "commercial" or "terrorist or aliens controlled", "hostile" or "benign", especially one which had its ACAR system and transponders deliberately switched off, and did not respond with its "squawk code" transmission? But then, by General Daud's own words, the "plot blip" was not discovered in real time. So, who determined what, when and how? 

Confusing? Not so, says our beacon of clarity incarnate, Defence and Acting Transport Minister, Kerismudin. Attaboy, UMNO's poster boy for speaking at the same time through two apertures at opposite ends of the human anatomy.

What this episode means in terms of our national security is that this is the equivalent of literally driving a coach, an elephant and two T-Rex through Putrajaya, and no one noticing it in real time. We are literally handing out a road map to would-be terrorists to crash their aeroplanes into something like our central busines district, Putrajaya, KLIA or military HQ, and get away with it scot-free.

This is the kind of negligence for which they routinely behead generals in China, while in Japan it would not proceed so far, as the head honcho would have spilled his guts out by first committing hara-kiri!

A Royal Commission of Inquiry, you say? Don't make me laugh. Najib and his Government of Thieves has yet to implement the findings of the 2005 RCI on the 'Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission' or the 2007 'VK Lingam Video Clip RCI' which recommended action be taken against former Chief Justices Eusoff and Ahmad Fairuz for corruption and fixing of judicial appointments, as well as ex-Prime Minister Mahathir, lawyer VK Lingam, businessman Vincent Tan and current Minister of Federal Territories, Tengku Adnan, for their various roles in the affair. This has remained an outrageous and resounding slap on the face of out King by Najib and UMNO for their continued brazen stonewalling.

 And if we do advance to court martial, then let's not dishonourably discharge some poor junior radar clerk; go for the general, because complacency starts at the top.

Of course court martial. And stripping the ranks of the officers, including the General. In some countries they would be shot.

The RMAF Chief will kiss Rosmah hand and cry in front of Najib so that he will not be court martialled. The whole line up of the RMAF generals to be kicked out for negligence....Anyway, what do you expect from mediocre that is at the helm of the organization. You bet if war breaks out tomorrow all of us will be in shit!!!

While there is some truth in this MF comments relating to the judiciary and the kris affair, much of the rest is utter nonsense.
Go back to school man. Your comments on the radar plot and the way it was allegedly to have been mishandled clearly indicate how shallow you are. Stick to issues that petition writers such as yourself are good at lest you mislead the Malaysian public with your lies, half-truths and inuendoes. Have some thought for those directly and indirectly affected.

Pray tell us what excuse the RMAF has for not detecting an invasion over our airspace and scrambling our jets? What's the point of buying $billions of fighter jets (and paying $hundreds of millions gaji buta commissions to a ex-MB of Melaka) if they are not used when our security is threatened?

This is good for the families affected becuase they should sue the RMAF, its chief and PM Najib and his Govt of Thieves for this gross negligence and dereliction of duty to the Rakyat!

Typical rant of blogster who has cowdung between his or her ears. Bodoh, bodoh, bodoh.
No the comment on the country's air defense capability and how the Air Force should react to airspace intrusions has little to do with MH 370 flight profile. For the info of morons like you, every obj flying in Msian airspace are detected by both the Air Defence as well as DCA radars. All are classified as tgts and are allocated ident be they civil or military. These tgts or blips are then classified friendly or otherwise.
For anyone to expect the Air Force to scramble fighters to intercept friendly idents everytime one is detected is either an absolute moron, or perhaps a guy with the mentality of a 12 yr old who has seen to much Ultraman cartoon prog. So, do some research before you write any comments on something you are not sure of. Better still, ask someone who does..
This incident has brought to light many positive things about our country. Sadly also, through "tahi ayam" blog such as this, you will discover there are heartless people and morons who pass unnecessary and stupid comments
This budaya 'baling batu sorok tangan" must stop. Don't print rubbish even though you feel inclined to do so. You will only succeed in telling the world how naive or stupid you are..

It's you who's talking nonsennse. And, yes I have talked to some people with technical knowledge.

There's no way a military radar can identify from any blip if an aircraft is commercial or other, or friendly or hostile in real time. They will have to communicate and if the aircraft sends back its sqawk code, then the military can identify it.

Otw, there's no choice but to scramble the jets for first, visual sighting and identification, and if they cannot escort it to a safe site, then more drastic action will HAVE to be taken.

Imagine if the aircraft had crashed into Petronas Twin Towers. What would be the airforces' excuse - there are so many aircrafts in the sky we can't check it all? Our air force chief in indulging in CYA (Cover your ass) to try and evade court martial!!

anon 3:59....I think you are moron just like the RMAF Chief and the rest of the generals. Do you know the status of or the state of mission capable of our radar system.
what we need to do... Bedah siasat...the maintainence of our radar...haul ZETRO, call up the Air Force generals and there must be something when ZETRO appointed X RMAF Chief to be the chairman...call up Nik Ismail to answer....

"MH 370: AIR FORCE CHIEF SHOULD BE COURT MARTIALLED?"

DPP,

Yes indeed.

Bolehland has 1st World Hardware, but 3rd World Software…!

If the Malaysian RMAF had done its job in the first place then all these would not have happened.

Bolehland had the “Opportunity” to send its fighters to intercept the enemy aircraft or “assist the ‘Stricken Airliner’ with FAILED nav & communication equip” to land at Penang or Langkawi airport, when it was flying low at 12,000 ft from the east coast across Malaysia.

It could have saved the MH370 aircraft, its passengers and crew onboard to safely land or if pilots incapacitated, followed the flight with reinforcement aircrafts & flight details to make the search location more precise along the track, to save the resources and time.
