  The US-american military base Diego García in the middle of the Indian Ocean is in fact the only place on earth where this plane could have landed without the world public learning about in within a few days. The population of that island was deported in the early 1970ies to make room for the US military base. Today only British and US military are on the island. According to the Wikipedia article quoted below, there are also some civil employees from the population of other islands in the Chagos archipel.

  Diego Garcia was also the starting point for the B52 bombers sowing "shock and awe" (terror for short) in Iraq and Afghanistan preparing the conquest of those countries by the US military. 

  One should not light-handedly discard this possibility. 

  One should thing the unthinkable: that agents of the USA government have kidnapped the plane, diverted it to Diego Garcia to capture some people or material from the plane. And that then the plane with the unwanted witnesses would have been discarded in the southern Indian Ocean. This would be a heinous crime, one more in the long chain of crimes against humanity by the supreme empire, but a crime which would not be acceptable even by the blindest fans of US world rule. And the US government does of course know that even in the tightly knit US military community, there are Bradley Mannings and Edward Snowdens, who could reveal this crime to the public. So, in view of those risks, this Diego Garcia variant looks improbable. 

  At least, such a possible course of the events comes with a motivation for the kidnapping of MH370, while currently there are no clues as to why and how the plane diverted from its original course north to Bejing to the West where Diego Garcia is within the range of the plane's fuel supplies...

  So my suggestion is to put emotions aside and to consider each and every possibility calmly and in cold blood.
