Pope Francis is looking for peace to benefit children.

Pope Francis Christmas message brings focus to the value of peace. There are places in the world today that do not value peace, yet alone value children. Children thrive in good measure because of peace. A child returns to it's society of which it most appreciated, namely all the essentials of growing up and strong moral character.

Peace is never sincerely valued in political spectrum as a commodity that carries with it the benevolence of childhood. War is frequently viewed as a characteristic of a strong society when in fact it is just the opposite. The best examples of peace where sovereign domestic tranquility provides for children are the Netherlands, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. (click here)

The less money a society spends on war, the more it has to spend on peaceful agendas that promote childhood happiness. Included in happiness is good nutrition and education whereby the future is a promise of a quality of life and not simply a place to live out adulthood.

Pope Francis (click here) used a traditional Christmas address on Thursday to emphasize the plight of children in areas of conflict, pointing out their “impotent silence” that “cries out under the spade of many Herods,” a reference to the ancient king who slaughtered all the young boys of Bethlehem, according to the New Testament.

Vast numbers of children today are victims of violence, objects of trade and trafficking, or forced to become soldiers, and they need to be saved, he said.

The pope spoke of “children displaced due to war and persecution, abused and taken advantage of before our very eyes and our complicit silence.” He singled out “infants massacred in bomb attacks,” including in the Middle East and in Pakistan, where 132 children were killed in a Taliban attack on a school this month....

The impact of the economic crisis on child well-being in rich countries

Date of publication 2014

From the Washington Post:

October 29, 2014
Nearly one third of U.S. children live in households with an income below 60 percent of the national median income in 2008 - about $31,000 annually.
In the richest nation in the world, one in three kids live in poverty. Let that sink in....

Until tomorrow.

Baghdadi is a heretic.

The name Jesus son of Mary written in Islamic calligraphy followed by Peace be upon him.

The Abrahamic religions were always peaceful in their connected history. Jesus Christ was a Jew, a Rabbi. The Muslims embraced Jesus Christ as a prophet. The idea a Catholic child could be killed because she didn't have the genetic material the Caliph preferred is hideous as well as heinous.

Does lightning strike twice?

The child was Christian. There is no compassion, not even the least little bit, among these monsters.

Any reasonable and sane person aggrieved when the USA and it's coalition entered Iraq would at least believe children could be taught to worship their idea of the correct and most holy god/Allah. These idiots reflect absolutely no understanding of the meaning of life at all. No sane human being would do this.

There is only one animal that kills the young of another male in order to claim the females. Bachelor lions will enter a pride and fight with the males already there to take over the group. Those invading males if they succeed then kill off the young so the females will come into estrous. The Baghdadi regime is the most disgusting animals I have ever imagined could exist in the modern world.

The West is correct in stopping their young Muslims before they enter the influence of this madman. He is handing them candy and in return is giving them a life in hell.

Am I surprised USA and European intelligence hasn't found the hostages? No. They are moved everyday. Is there a curfew of the people across the land within his reach? If there were such a curfew Baghdadi and his henchmen would have control without interference of any movement past that time until the curfew is lifted for morning prayers.

He has a limited purview for his daily walk of prisoners. He would have to eventually return them to a previous detention area/building/basement.

I'd be real curious to know whether the Tamil Tigers have reconstituted.

The British (click here) national on board missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 is Chi-Man Choi, the BBC understands.
It is thought he was with his two-year-old daughter on the plane, which was flying from Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board when it went missing in the early hours of Sunday.
The UK Foreign Office earlier confirmed a British national was on the flight and the family had been informed.
"Our thoughts are with the passengers' families," the FCO said.
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond tweeted: "My thoughts are with the family and friends of all those on board Air Asia flight QZ8501."
A spokesman for the British Embassy in Jakarta said it was working with local authorities to establish further details....

I would find it very believable to realize al Bagdadi has prodded defeated regimes back into valor. After all, it is a global caliphate, isn't it? He is counting on numbers and uprisings through faux democracy movements. 

That is my estimate. And only my estimate. It is the 'waiting and planning' which launched the old Ba'athists into a faux caliphate. The people have no idea what a caliphate was. Baghdadi defined it as ethnic cleansing and genocide. He is demented and charismatic. We have a problem.

If this is any kind of regime the chances of finding any passengers alive is very remote. The regimes I am somewhat familiar with won't use interrogation so much as ethnic cleansing. I hope it was the weather and/or the jet. At least there is a chance some may have found there way to shore. Albeit small chance either way.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Aircraft and ships (click here) that spent several hours searching Indonesian waters turned up no sign of an Air Asia plane that disappeared Sundaywith 162 people on board in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning, officials said.
Aircraft searching for AirAsia Flight 8501 called off the effort for the night and will resume at Monday morning, said Achmad Toha of Indonesia's search and rescue agency. Some ships were continuing the search overnight, he said....

The only reason anyone has survived as prisoners to al Baghdadi's regime is because they are useful for hostage payments. The West's people were taken as objects of wealth and funding. The reason it took so long to begin to publicly execute them is because once the people of the free world realized what the regime was doing they could no longer accumulate prisoners; people would stop coming as journalists or NGO workers into Syria or otherwise within their control.

The Baghdadi regime are killers. They are not interested in a civilized society. To even entertain that thought is victimization by the hope most of The West carries as their promise by their governments. The regimes use the emotional competency of The West against itself. The West always believes in the potential for good. The regimes have no intention of conducting 'good' in the world. 

Would torture ever work on these people? No. One had to understand what decency, civilization, the value of life and goodness is; where it is absent by upbringing it would be like finding a child raised by wolves.

What military aircraft are operating in this part of the world?

And don't tell me there is STILL no real air tracking system either.

Airbus launched (click here) its single-aisle product line with the A320, which continues to set industry standards for comfort and operating economy on short- to medium-haul routes.  Typically seating 150 passengers in a two-class cabin – or up to 180 in a high-density layout for low-cost and charter flights – the A320 is in widespread service around the globe on services that vary from short commuter sectors in Europe, Asia and elsewhere to trans-continental flights across the United States.

The jet that is missing is a A320-200. The 200 is about the passenger capacity of the jet.

An AirAsia (click here) flight travelling from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control, the company has said.
Indonesian media say more than 160 people were on the Airbus A320-200.
Flight QZ8501 lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24 (23:24 GMT), Malaysia-based AirAsia tweeted.
Malaysia's national carrier Malaysia Airlines has suffered two disasters this year - flights MH370 and MH17 - but AirAsia has never lost a plane.
Flight MH370 disappeared on a flight from Jakarta to Beijing in March with 239 passengers and crew, and MH17 was shot down over Ukraine in July, killing all 298 on board.
AirAsia says that search and rescue operations are under way for the missing aircraft.
The flight had been due to arrive in Singapore at 08:30 (00:30GMT)....

May well use the same graphics, there is no reason not to.

The few differences are the city departing and arriving. This is Surabaya, Indonesia.

The map below was the destination of this fight in Singapore.

Norad better be doing something other than following Santa.

The distance between Surabaya and Singpore is about 847.7 miles. There is something very wrong here. Now either there are deadly patterns of wind, which is possible because there was an airliner that returned to Japan recently after being tossed around, but, that was over the northern Pacific. This area is susceptible to Antarctica influences.

The other possibility which I believe is more likely the answer is there are para-military forces in the area. 

Below is the Antarctica water vapor satellite. It has a loop of three days. There is some turbulence between longitude 60 to 120. That is where Indonesia lies.

This is a loop that 'rocks' from forward to backward (click here). It can be adjusted as viewer prefers.  

There has also been major flooding in Malaysia. It is summer there.

December 28, 2014

Rescuers are struggling (click here) to get help to the tens of thousands of people affected by Malaysia's worst flooding in decades as angry victims accused the government of being slow in its response.
Malaysians have vented their anger at Prime Minister Najib Razak after photos went viral on social media showing him playing golf with US President Barack Obama during the storms.
The number of people forced to flee their homes climbed past 120,000 with weather forecasters warning of no respite for the northeastern states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang.
From the air, parts of Kota Bharu, the state capital of badly-affected Kelantan, resembled a vast, muddy lake, with row after row of rooftops peeking out of the murky waters....

There are two air ridges fairly easy to discern. One off Antarctica and the other more tropical over Indonesia.

There is a dense circulation center (click here) developing in the past day northwest-west of Australia.

The weather could have played a part in it.

A search and rescue operation (click here) is underway after an AirAsia flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore with 162 people onboard lost contact with air traffic control on Sunday.
The passengers onboard the flight include 138 adults, 16 children and one infant. Also on board were two pilots and five cabin crew.
AirAsia said there were 157 Indonesian passengers onboard, three South Koreans, one French, one Singaporean, and one Malaysian. No Australians were said to be on the plane....
If authorities can't find this jet in such a small and specific path, there is sincerely something very, very wrong.

FIND THE DAMN JET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
