Probably those stink-en Americans again I hear they killed some dudes in a war zone that might have had weapons, and their trying to convince everyone that because they pollute more that its gonna idk change the climate, also theirs this nazi jerk who keeps time traveling and eatin peoples babies showin up through a portal of flames riden some horse.
Besides the scarcasim im sorry to hear such terrible news
Concerning international relations, its awful news it went down in Russian airspace soon after Katyn. I can see this being blown up into a conspiracy-investigation to equal that that infested the Diana crash. Awful, awful news.

I've just seen the news, and this is horrendous. My deepest sympathies go to the families involved and the entire Polish people...

This is absolutely shocking and horrible news. What I want to know is what the heck the Polish Government is going to do now. Some sort of provisional government until an entire new administration can be elected?
Of course, condolences to these people's families, and to all of Poland.
Hookswords - No. People are not freaking out. According to Poland's current constitution actual Sejm Marshal (Bronislaw Komorowski) substitutes for the President of Poland in the latter's absence or disability (for two months). Within two weeks from now he is required to call new elections.

Anyway I thought this was funny (too soon?)
What I found most shocking was seeing the number of empty seats at the memorial service.
That's a whole load of people to go down in a plane.
My condolences to the families involved.
This is awful news for any country.
Poland has a prime minster last time I checked, so what dose the 'president' do?
Unlike America, a lot of countries use Kings, Queens, Presidents as figure heads and the Prime Minister does a lot of the work. But don't quote me on that one of course.
Thoughts to Poland and her children.
When I first read this thread yesterday afternoon I wasn't really sure what to think of it, but when the news had an early feature on the plane crash, I only fully started to realise this was true. This is a tragedy, probably the biggest one to Poland after WWII. It's a tragedy to everyone who now has to deal with the loss of a loved one, and it's a tragedy to the entire country, who is now without leaders. My sincere condoleances to all of them, and all of Poland.

After reading this I thought that I should clarify some things...
1) President, his wife and most of his associates from the president's office were killed, as far as I remember none of the ministers or government high officials died.
2) Poland's government type is based on parliament and the Council of Ministers, the President is in fact a representative figure, and has some control over the government which at this time is intact and the Prime Minister who is the head of the government is alive...so there's no talking about any kind of panic etc - just as Farvus has already said.
3) There are rules about 4 most important people in the country not traveling together - and the protocols have been followed, at this time only the President is dead, leaving 3 other, including his two substitutes and the Prime Minister still alive.
4) There's no talk of any foul play, plot or conspiracy so please stop that...and shove your stupid jokes...
Many of "less important" but great people died, some politicians which we knew, liked and heard of everyday on the news...and this is probably the greatest tragedy in our history since the WWII. It's hard to describe the atmosphere here, how people feel and what they think right now.

I decided to edit my post and remove the picture. Personally I see humor as a legit coping mechanism, and that it's a good thing to find humor even in the most grim of times, but I can understand if some people don't agree with that, or don't find it appropriate this soon after the event.
Thirdeye, Artzealot and anyone else: My sincere apologies if I offended you.
Thanks a lot Thirdeye! Even if the president wasn't popular for everybody, is amazing how whole Poland has reacted as a whole.

The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
- these delegates where off to Russia for a memorial service of 'reconciliation' between Russia and Poland, because Russia during the war, had committed some inhumane act/genocide against the Polish, and had denied it for so many years after, blaming the Nazis....
Its so sad that they were all on one plane at one time. I wonder how long it will take for conspiracy theories to pop up, when it really come down to one thing - crap aeroplane....
