Bak kata pepath ...."Berat Mata Memandang, Berat Lagi Bahu Memikul"......itulah KEBENARAN yang Negara terpaksa Tanggung,, kita sebagai rakyat jangan mengikut sesedap rasanya bila memberi komen2 liar dan negatif didalam isu kehilangan MH370. Sewajarnya rakyat Malaysia harus faham bagaimana Pemimpin seperti Perdana Menteri sedang dan tengah memikir apa jua musibah termasuklah menjaga jiwa hati dan perasaan keluarga yang terbabit... 

Ia bukan sekadar Warganegara Malaysia shaja, malah terlebih lebih dari 8 Negara yang warganegara mereka berada didalam pesawat MH370 yang malang ini. 

Memang kita mudah untuk memberi persepsi yang berbagai, namun natijahnya Kerajaan BN yang menguruskannya mahu tidak mahu "Kos-Kos Tanpa Duga" bagi melakukan pencarian yang telah mengambil masa satu [ 1 ] bulan ini. 

Jadi kepada Puak Pembangkang, spt Anwar, Tian Chua dan beberapa lagi Ahli DAP yang lantang serta mengadu-domba dan memburukkan Kerajaan Malaysia terutamanya kepada Warga China, fikir semula. Fikir adakah ANDA berpijak di BUMI yang nyata. jgn sampai satu hari nanti, ANDA akan menerima padah di atas kata-kata dan perbuatan ANDA yang sewenang-wenangnya mengkritik Kerajaan, sedangkan Negara2 luar amat berpuas hati dgn cara kita menangani masalah ini.

Mari kita lihat... sekelumit "Kos-Kos Pengurusan" bagi pencarian MH370 ini dan beban yang Negara terpaksa tanggung................


More than two dozen countries have played some role in the search for MH370 and it is already proving to be very costly.
The U.S. bill alone has run into the millions of dollars, and some countries such as China have devoted more ships and planes to the effort than the Americans have.
Australia is spending more than half a million dollars a day on just one of the ships it has in the Indian Ocean. 
But governments and military experts say it's difficult to come up with a full estimate for an ongoing search, especially since many of the costs are a normal part of maintaining effective search-and-rescue capabilities. 
'If I listed how many planes and boats are involved, I could confect a very large number, but it wouldn't have much meaning, because we've got to pay for the boats and the planes and the pilots and the sailors anyway, and they're out there doing some stuff which is good training and reflects well on us internationally,' said Mark Thomson, senior analyst of defense economics at the government-funded Australian Strategic Policy Institute. 
In the days since the search has shifted to remote areas of the Indian Ocean, several countries have deployed planes and ships for the effort, including China, Australia, Malaysia, the U.S., Britain, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. 
On Monday, nine military planes, three civil aircraft and 14 ships were combing a 234,000-square-kilometre (90,000-square-mile) search area, according to Australian officials coordinating the search. 
Malaysia has repeatedly declined to answer questions about the cost of the search.
Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has said the cost is immaterial, and the focus is to find the plane and provide closure for the families of the 239 people aboard. 
The U.S. Department of Defense allocated $4 million to help search for the missing Malaysian jetliner. 
Between March 8 and March 24, it had spent $3.2 million, said spokesman Col. Steve Warren. 
As of late last week it had spent another $148,000.
The Pentagon has allocated another $3.6 million to cover the cost of a towed pinger locator, used to detect underwater signals from aircraft black boxes, and an underwater autonomous vehicle, which can look for wreckage deep below the ocean surface. 
Australia's defense department said its direct cost of using its ship the HMAS Success in the search is about $550,000 per day, and another vessel, the HMAS Toowoomba, costs about $380,000 per day. 
But it said there are not only direct costs such as fuel, servicing and crew salaries, but indirect costs such as general administration, building costs and depreciation of aircraft assets, so it is difficult to provide an exact total. 
Several Chinese ships and planes have been involved in the search, but China's foreign ministry did not respond to questions about the expense of the effort. 
Geoff Davies, a spokesman for New Zealand's defence force, said much of his country's costs will be covered by the existing budget for search and rescue operations, though there are likely to be some extra costs because of the extraordinary nature of the search. 
Japan's defence ministry said it could not provide a figure because the search is continuing. 
The cost of the search operation is believed to fall within the 880 million yen ($8.8 million) budgeted for emergency relief for the Japan International Cooperation Agency. 
Extra costs incurred by the operation include fuel a special allowance for the roughly 90 troops involved. 
Some Japanese civilians are also participating, and the government said their accommodation and transportation has cost about 28 million yen ($280,000). 
Accommodation for the Japanese troops is free, as they use facilities at the Australian military under their defense cooperation agreement.

Underwater sounds detected by a ship searching the southern Indian Ocean for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet are consistent with the pings from aircraft black boxes, an Australian official said, calling it 'a most promising lead'.
Angus Houston, the head of a joint agency co-ordinating the search, warned that it could take days to confirm whether the signals picked up by the Australian navy ship Ocean Shield are indeed from the black boxes that belonged to Flight MH370, but called the discovery very encouraging.
'Clearly this is a most promising lead, and probably in the search so far, it's probably the best information that we have had,' Mr Houston said at a news conference.

Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, head of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre leading the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, confirms authorities have detected signals consistent with a black box during a media conference in Perth today
'We've got a visual indication on a screen and we've also got an audible signal - and the audible signal sounds to me just like an emergency locator beacon.'


After a month-long search for answers filled with dead ends, Monday's news brought fresh hope given that the two black boxes, which contain flight data and cockpit voice recordings, are the key to unravelling exactly what happened to Flight MH370 and why.
Malaysian defence minister Hishammudin Hussein told reporters that in light of the new information: 'We are cautiously hopeful that there will be a positive development in the next few days, if not hours.'

Mr Hussein said miracles do happen' and that 'we continue to pray for survivors'. 
He said that all parties must be cautious about 'unconfirmed findings and making conclusions'.
There was little time left to locate the devices, which have beacons that emit 'pings' so they can be more easily found.
The beacons' batteries last only about a month - and Tuesday marks exactly one month since the plane disappeared during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The Australian navy's Ocean Shield, which is carrying high-tech sound detectors from the US navy, picked up two separate signals late on Saturday night and early on Sunday morning within a remote patch of the Indian Ocean far off the west Australian coast that search crews have been criss-crossing for weeks. 
The first signal lasted two hours and 20 minutes before it was lost. The ship then turned around and picked up a signal again - this time recording two distinct 'pinger returns' that lasted 13 minutes, Mr Houston said.
'Significantly, this would be consistent with transmissions from both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder,' Mr Houston said.
Still, Mr Houston cautioned that it was too early to say the transmissions were coming from the missing jet.
'I would want more confirmation before we say this is it,' he said. 'Without wreckage, we can't say it's definitely here. We've got to go down and have a look.'

The airliner's black boxes normally emit a frequency of 37.5 kilohertz, and the signals picked up by the Ocean Shield were both 33.3 kilohertz, said US navy captain Mark Matthews. But officials contacted the device's manufacturer and were told the frequency of black boxes can drift near the end of their shelf lives.
The Ocean Shield was slowly canvassing a small area trying to find the signal again, though that could take another day, Mr Matthews said.
'It's like playing hot and cold when you're searching for something and someone's telling you you're getting warmer and warmer and warmer,' he said. 
'When you're right on top of it you get a good return.'

If they pick up the signal again, the crew will launch an underwater vehicle to investigate, Mr Matthews said. 
The Bluefin-21 autonomous sub can create a sonar map of the area to chart where the debris may lie on the sea floor. 
If it maps out a debris field, the crew will replace the sonar system with a camera unit to photograph any wreckage.
But that may prove tricky, given that the sub can only dive to about 4,500 metres (14,800 feet) - the approximate depth of the water. 
That means the vehicle will be operating to the limits of its capability.
Given the difficulties involved, officials warned the mystery of Flight MH370 would still take time to resolve.
'It could take some days before the information is available to establish whether these detections can be confirmed as being from MH370,' Mr Houston said. 'In very deep oceanic water, nothing happens fast.'
Geoff Dell, discipline leader of accident investigation at Central Queensland University in Australia, said it would be 'coincidental in the extreme' for the sounds to have come from anything other than an aircraft's black box.

'If they have got a legitimate signal, and it's not from one of the other vessels or something, you would have to say they are within a bull's roar,' he said.
'There's still a chance that it's a spurious signal that's coming from somewhere else and they are chasing a ghost, but it certainly is encouraging that they've found something to suggest they are in the right spot.'
Meanwhile, the British ship HMS Echo was using sophisticated sound-locating equipment to try to determine whether two separate sounds heard by a Chinese ship about 555 kilometres (345 miles) away from the Ocean Shield were related to the plane. 
The patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected a brief 'pulse signal' on Friday and a second signal on Saturday.

Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the search for missing MH370, said today three separate sounds detected from deep in the Indian Ocean were an 'important and encouraging lead'
The crew of the Chinese ship reportedly picked up the signals using a sonar device called a hydrophone dangled over the side of a small boat - something experts said was technically possible but extremely unlikely. 
The equipment aboard the British and Australian ships is dragged slowly behind each vessel over long distances and is considered far more sophisticated.
The search effort was also continuing on the ocean surface on Monday. Twelve planes and 14 ships were searching three designated zones, one of which overlaps with the Ocean Shield's underwater search.
All of the previous surface searches have found only fishing equipment or other sea rubbish floating in the water, but have found no debris related to the Malaysian plane.
A new report suggesting that the missing flight MH370 deliberately circled around Indonesian air space after it vanished appears to lend credibility to an earlier claim that the jet was hijacked.
CNN reported that it had been told that the Boeing 777 might have flown around Indonesian air space on the night it vanished in what could have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection.
That new report tends to support an anonymous email received by the Daily Mail last week - from what is believed to be a Malaysian government source - in which it was claimed that the aircraft had been hijacked and the pilots were told to circle around an area 'near Malaysia' while negotiations with the hijackers were carried out.
According to the email received by the Mail the hijackers demanded that a five year jail sentence imposed on Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim be lifted - and while negotiations were being carried out the plane was ordered to fly around near Malaysia and Indonesia for five hours.

Although the email cannot be verified and the claimed government source has not been identified, its contents tend to fit in with separate information now received by CNN.
The writer, who corresponded in Chinese, said in the translation that if an agreement was reached for the jail sentence to be lifted, the aircraft would be allowed to land safely. 
But if, after five hours no agreement was reached, 'the plane will be destroyed'.
The source said in the email that although the aircraft's main communication system had been closed down, negotiations continued through what the writer said was an 'internal communication channel.'
According to the source, the government took five hours to declare the loss of the plane because that was when the negotiation time ran out and when officials realised the aircraft could not stay in the air any longer.
During those five hours, said the writer, 'the plane was always flying around the Malaysian area.'
The Boeing company said later that the jet would have been able to stay in the air for a few hours more than the five hours referred to in the email.
Although both the CNN report and the email received by the Mail have come from unidentified sources, the claims in both tend to agree on one major point - that MH370 circled around the Malaysian-Indonesian area before, as pings from the bottom of the sea suggest, it finally flew out into the Indian Ocean where it ran out of fuel.
He said that China also reported seeing white objects floating in the sea 55 miles from where the ping was detected.
The movements of every passenger and crew member in the hours before the ill-fated MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur have been examined by detectives sifting through CCTV cameras mounted at the airport and on the nearby motorway.
They have examined the faces of passengers and crew passing through an automatic toll point near the airport and have watched security footage of all passengers as they strolled around the airport prior to taking off on the scheduled flight to Beijing.

The examinations has been so detailed that detectives have been able to follow the movements of two Iranians who, it was established later, had checked in using passports stolen in Thailand.
While background checks on the two men suggest they were planning to start new lives in Europe, using a popular 'human smuggling route' through Malaysia, their movements might suggest they were up to more sinister activities.
Investigators combing through the CCTV recordings first spotted the two men passing through a toll gate in separate vehicles, the Sunday edition of Malaysia's New Straits Times reported today.
One was travelling in a taxi while the other was travelling in a private car, a source was quoted as telling the newspaper. 
The cars stopped near each other at the airport and then the two men walked in the same direction, but separately. 
'They were trying hard to appear as if they didn't know each other at the airport. It was only much later that they pretended to bump into each other and shook hands, but after that they again kept a distance from each other. They were very calm throughout,' said the quoted source.
The source told the paper: 'Their hands were glued to their phones, texting appeared as though they were taking instructions from someone.'19
