... any country losing 3 major aircraft ENR in a year is so vanishingly small as to be statistically impossible.

There have been 15 ENR losses of aircraft with more than 50 passengers in the last decade, and with 150 countries flying, that means each country had a 1% chance of losing an aircraft in any given year. That means one chance in a million of losing three.
Except the aircraft that has gone missing is Indonesian. Air Asia is a franchise business.
