What can be said about the Chief Executive of Poland, his wife & his entourage but that it was a sad day in Poland, Western Russia at the crash site and world wide. But let it not be said that he died for nothing. He died going to a memorial for innocent Poles killed in unmarked graves. By focusing and bringing light upon the terrible events of circa 1940, the President & his team died as heroes. They went to honour Polish prisoners who lived through terrible strife and hardship caused by Former Soviet President & Communist President Stalin.
The Soviets were our supposed allies in WWII. Yet they pulled off this garbage of killing Poles. General George S. Patton, Jr. had it right, Ike should have cannibalized German troops into Allied divisions and we should have knocked out Stalin in 1944 with the German's help. Then we could have avoided communism & the entire Cold War.
Let us all remember the sacrifice of the Polish President & his team, as well as those brave citizens of Poland who gave up their lives in 1940 & the WWII era. Through this tragedy, students must be taught here in Alberta what great citizens the people of Poland are, as well as what good friends they are to us. May the next President (or the Prime Minister of Poland as Acting President) steer Poland forward so that it can garner strength from these tragedies, heal & continue to be a positive member of society focusing on raising up its next generation of children to be a positive influence for Polish society. While at the same time honouring the sacrifices of Polish citizens from the past.
Condolences & In Memoriam,
