What's behind Chinese criticism of Malaysia's investigation into Flight 370

(CNN) – Malaysian officials have been criticized for their handling of the investigation, but the most seething attacks have come from the Chinese. From the beginning, they've raised questions over whether the Malaysians, and in particular the military, were hiding something.

Relatives and supporters held a public demonstration Monday, marching towards the Malaysian embassy in Beijing with signs that said things like "We don't give up."

And a committee representing some of the families of the Chinese passengers released a statement yesterday accusing the Malaysians of covering up the truth, saying: "Malaysia Airlines, Malaysian government and Malaysian military are the real murderers that killed them."

Why such hostility toward the Malaysian government? Is this the Chinese just protecting the families of more than 150 Chinese passengers on this plane, or is there more to it?

Forbes columnist and author of "The Coming Collapse of China" Gordon Chang joins CNN to discuss.
