The perplexing disappearance of a packed Malaysian Airlines jet has all the earmarks of terrorism, Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters says.
"The indicators are sure there. It looks like a terrorist act. We may find out it wasn't, but there is plenty of motivation," Peters told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
The Chinese have been just savage in their repression of the Uyghur Muslim minority in northwestern China . . . So, that is one possibility, the Uyghur Muslim activists," Peters said Monday.
The jet, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Bejing, suddenly vanished Saturday as it flew over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam. Investigators have so far found no traces of it in the water.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – A Malaysian court on Monday sentenced a man to 12 years in jail for raping a 12-year-old whom he later married, as an activist urged the Muslim-majority nation to ban all child marriages.
The district court in Sabah state on Borneo island found former restaurant manager Riduan Masmud, 41, guilty of raping the girl in February last year, his lawyer Ram Singh said.
The father-of-four was charged with rape shortly after the act, but in May last year told the court that he had married the girl.
The case caused an outcry and prosecutors continued to pursue the rape charge.

Lancashire Muslims react angrily to calls for halal meat ban
MUSLIMS in Lancashire have reacted with anger to calls to ban halal meat.
John Blackwell, the new president-elect of the British Veterinary Association, has argued that killing animals by cutting their throats causes unnecessary suffering.
The calls also apply to Kosher meat, eaten by people of the Jewish faith.
Traditionally, Jewish and Islamic slaughter practices involve animals having their throats slit and the blood drained because it is believed to be humane.
The call for a ban comes in the wake of a decision by the Danish government to ban the religious slaughter of animals for halal and kosher meat.
