    Wait, there are plane pieces left after a plane crash? I thought they immediately disintegrated like the one at the Pentagon? Go figure!?

    People die everyday. I don`t know how is that amusing(since all post on this site should be). And don`t give me "you`re impertinent/ soulless/ unsensitive/ non-nice individual" crap. I`m visiting this site to forget about misery in this world, not to be reminded of it.

    @MrTwidget
    Depends on how fast the plane is going. They said they were landing, so I`m assuming it was going around 200mph or less

    Although I can`t say how fast the pentagon plane was going

    And why would you bring 9/11 crap up? Really now...

    I don`t mean to bring up the past, and I feel for the lives lost here, but I guess every time I see plane crash pictures, it`s clear that a plane has crashed. (unlike my previous reference)

    @MrTwidget: That was a much larger plane at much higher speeds carrying lots more jet fuel. It also impacted a concrete building and not trees.

    well, at least most of them were politicians and high ranked army officials, i.e. thiefs and murderers. good for them. I`m sorry for the rest of the passengers.

    It`s terrible that they had to crash when they were trying to repair relations with Russia regarding things that happened 70 years ago. I don`t think this is going to help that situation at all. :(

    Yep, the Russians are known to place naturally occurring thick fog near runways and grow their trees extra tall so that they snag airplanes. Damn Russians!

    if it was an accident why would this cause problems?
    BEcause Russia (USSR or not) has a long history of being really BAD to the people of Poland. Just the association of this disaster with Russia will further reinforce those bitter memories.
    I somehow doubt Russia was behind this, although they have done plenty of rotten things to their neighbors (poisoning the leader of Ukrain comes to mind).
    A sad event all around.

    A tragic irony... This is going to cause more problems for Russia, partly because of people like Cleat_us thinking up conspiracy theories and partly because this was ment to repair relations.

    This is an interesting story...not to get all conspiracy theory on this, but I think it could have been an inside job. The President of a country and high government officials all on a plane that crashes sends up red flags.

    Ah awesome, I`ve been looking for a place to discuss this.

    I was wondering what kind of impact that the president`s death would have on Poland (minus the conspiracy theories that Russia did it). He is after all, from my knowledge a mere figurehead, and his accidental death I think wouldn`t have any significant impact on the politics of Poland. This thought discounts the facts that there are other significant Polish on board the plane.

    Anyone else wanna weigh in on this? Thanks!

    Reguardless of whether Russia is impicated or not, this is an opportunity for Russia to meddle in the rebuilding of Poland`s government and get a pro-russian leaning people into the leadership vacuume.

    I think here is clearly an opportunity for Russia to mend ties.

    Come out with a statement accepting past failures and basically vocally NOT being part of the political process in Poland for a little while.

    Hey Red Baal! Missed ya too... I`ve been on for weeks, but only been posting boring comments like `he`s hot`, or `awesomesauce`. Hehe. Not in the mood for arguments, though if there`s any discussion on China`s economy, I`m all in; I`ve got an exam coming up discussing their issues.

    Yeah, I`m just curious what kind of impact this has, if any, on the huge migrant Polish population in Ireland. Likely none.

    Perhaps not the politics (which I know nothing about), but it could very well affect the people. Everyone likes to have someone to follow.

    Or maybe i`ve just been reading too much 1984...

    When my sister found out about this, she cried. I couldn`t. I mean...it is a very big loss to my country and I DO feel bad. We have lost most of our important leaders but unfortunately bad things happen every day;(. I just really hope my country will go through this. R.I.P Lech Kaczynski and many others that have died in this tragedy.

    Right, `awesome` may have been inappropriate.

    However, in my defense I do not know the dude personally and I treat his death just like any death of people who has little direct impact on me: sad, but life goes on.

    I am however curious on the effect of this on the Polish people and their economy, especially since I know a couple of Poles. I`m more interested in the effect of the death rather than the death itself. Let the Poles grief; I am a mere outsider.

    I`m with irwinmcmath. My knowledge of Polish-Russian politics is absolute zero, but if this happened in the US I would definitely question the "accidental" nature of this. Especially since it says that control told them not to land, but they did anyway (with no mention of what the pilots had to say about it while it was happening...hmmm)
