Looks like a suicide-terrorist thing to me

There were 239 people on board. You think it was only about suicide?
So what? Give me even some kind of circumstantial evidence and I'll accept it as a possibility. The Luftwings guy did the same thing.

I’d agree it’s suicide. Of all the information that’s come to light regarding this mystery, there’s not much in the pilots background to indicate he was a jundi.

It was at least a murder-suicide. Suicide defined is the act of taking ones own life, which he could've done without killing the passengers. There must be a motive for taking them down with him.

To call it terorism we'd need some evidence that was his motivation. Why go to all of that trouble and not leave a "death to the Infidels" note or something?

Some people are just crazy.

That's my thinking. Also to add: Noone from any of the groups took credit and why would he fly it into the ocean? If it were an attack you'd think he would fly it into a target of some kind- he flew out of KL after all and Singapore isn't far away.

No, to my mind this wasn't terrorism.

Crazy is as crazy does.

Sometimes a person thinks its god talking, other times it's because they can't handle what life throws at them. As long as the world keeps turning people will do crazy inexplicable shit we can't explain or understand.
