Small. Interesting location, of course. Busy place according to wiki-
"Today, Malaysia has a newly industrialised market economy, ranked third largest in Southeast Asia and 29th largest in the world. It is a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the East Asia Summit and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and a member of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the Non-Aligned Movement."Pakistan wouldn't commit troops for the US backed/directed attack on Yemen (Pretty sure that was mentioned, somewhere here?) so Malaysia fills the void?
Malaysian forces join Saudi led coalition
Vanguards of the Malaysian forces have arrived Sunday at Saudi air bases to join Riyadh's military coalition battling Houthi militias in Yemen, the Saudi Press Agency reported.Yup, Malaysia and Malaysian troops. Exactly what dog does Malaysia have in this fight?
With the move, the Asian country became the 12th state in the Saudi-led coalition after Senegal announced it would send 2,100 soldiers to Saudi Arabia to join the alliance.
The Saudi Ministry of Defense said the coalition operations center is preparing to merge the Malaysian and Senegalese forces.
And, why does Malaysia keep turning up in weird places and spaces
Malaysia, Saudi Arabia & Yemen
Does Malaysia's involvement suggest a move against China? I don't know?
Malaysia the global player?
A Pivotal Year for Malaysia on the Global Stage
As it assumes the chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, Malaysia will have an outsized regional presence throughout 2015 and become a focus of the United States’ engagement in Asia. While all ASEAN chairs host a raft of meetings and work incrementally to deepen ties among the members, 2015 is a watershed year for ASEAN: The 10 ASEAN nations have committed to transforming into one “ASEAN Community” with three pillars—cohesive action on political and security affairs, deeper economic integration, and greater sociocultural cooperation—by December 31, 2015. As chair, it falls to Malaysia to make this vision of an integrated ASEAN Community a reality.Speaking again of Malaysian aircraft and their involvement in two interesting, suspicious & curious, incidents?
Furthermore, Malaysia takes up a two-year, nonpermanent seat on the U.N. Security Council this year. This role, together with the ASEAN chairmanship, may make 2015 one of the most important years for Malaysia’s international engagement since it achieved its independence from the United Kingdom in 1957. Malaysia’s increased international prominence has major implications for U.S.-Malaysia relations.
Now the nonsensical story regarding the Germanwings pilot is beginning to make sense
Creating that narrative may just be a way to put the MH370 story to bed, so to speak.
A suicide pilot deliberating crashing the plane for no reason what so ever- No target. Nothing.
Just crashing the plane.
However, there is still a problem with MH370: Where is the plane?
“The plane went missing, along with 227 passengers and 12 crew members, on March 8 last year while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.The complete and total disappearance of MH370 doesn't suggest suicide pilot to me.
No trace of the plane has been found so far and the search continues. (ANI)”
