Enormity and gravity of Germanwings air disaster in French alps

A New York Times scoop on information from the Germanwings voice recorder recovered from the airplane's bombastic crash site leaps through several theories about what happened to bring the flight to a disasterous collision with a mountain. An unbelievable debris field is now littering a mountain in the French alps.

It's difficult for anyone to say the obvious, but if the end of the Germanwings flight was caused by nefarious criminal actions, the enormity and gravity of the information will lead to a "Lusitania" type crossroads.

RMS Lusitania sunk by a German U boat in 1915, when 1,198 people died including 128 Americans

In 1915, the sinking of the British RMS Lusitania by a German U Boat, was a definitive incident that led to the exacerbation of World War I.  Germans fired on a non-military ship without warning. As a result, the sinking caused a storm of protest in the United States, as 128 Americans were among the dead. The ship's deliberate sinking helped shift public opinion in the United States against Germany and influenced America's eventual declaration of war in 1917, when the US entered to support the allies.  

Intelligence about the Germanwings crash reveals some evidence to support an unusual event in the airplane's cockpit. It's sobering to ponder what will happen if all reasons for the airplane's descent into a mountain in the alps are ruled out and criminal intent is determined to be the cause of the crash. Nevertheless, the crash of the Germanwings aircraft has opened a Lusitania type situation for the European nations. It was only a matter of time before a disaster would follow the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine. Now, the Europeans including the English, the French, the Spanish and the Germans must respond. A delayed response is not acceptable. If criminal intent is the cause of the air crash where 150 people were murdered, the root cause of the nefarious act must be determined so a rapid response can be launched.  

Sincere condolences to the families of the victims of the Germanwings air disaster.
