Polish President Dead: Who's Happy?

According to the Daily Mail UK, "Polish president Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria have been killed after their plane crashed on approach to Smolensk airport in western Russia.

There were conflicting reports today of the number of people on board the flight. Russian news agencies reported at least 88 people died in the crash near Smolensk airport in western Russia, citing the Russian Emergencies Ministry. They reported 132 people were aboard the Tupolev Tu-154".

According to the BBC, "Poland's army chief, central bank governor, MPs and leading historians were among more than 80 passengers.
They were flying in from Warsaw to mark 70 years since the Katyn massacre of thousands of Poles by Soviet forces."


Poland has been a stanch Ally to the United States and Putin has bristled at the the possibility of Poland buying missile defense systems from the United States. In general, Putin has eschewed any positive relationship between the US and former east block nations. Under the the current administration, Obama has dropped his drawers and become Putin's Bitch. With the latest treaty and policies, Obama is letting Russia in the front door, so who looks like the leader of the (free?) world?

Lech Walesa has tried to give us a wake up call, telling us that "we have lost our moral and political position of leadership in the world." This is very true and has been something coming for a long time, not just a recent development with the election of Barack Hussein Obama, although he has precipitated that decline at a breakneck pace. Don't believe me? Look at the actions of China, Russia, and our other enemies. They take the piss so regularly that America has become a Pissoir for the rest of the world.

What we have to see is who is happy about this event. While seemingly an accident, with Putin, the Ex-KGB Doyen, will undoubtedly have a smile on his face. You have to wonder what will follow. Generally speaking, presidents of countries have the best pilots at their disposal. You'd think he would have aborted the landing and landed elsewhere.

Thank you for reading this blog.

I was thinking the same thing when I read the story this morning.

It is sad and tragic, that a man-Polish President- who believed in freedom, liberty, and morals died. It is a tragedy that so many people died. I hope another good leader is chosen to be President of Poland.

Considering what the trip was about, I have to wonder where occams razor is.

Time will tell. May be Lech Walesa will take on a role in this.
