Disaster In Poland


Poland is stunned over a plane crash that took the lives of President Lech Kaczynski, his wife and nearly 100 senior officials Saturday. Their Russian-built Tupolev-154 went down in a heavy fog as the pilot tried to land in Smolensk, in western Russia.

What a horrible tragedy!! Can you imagine such a thing happening to our own government? Explain how our constitution plans ahead in case of such a disaster.

  1. If something like that happen to this governmet it will bad because we will loose the person and we have to find somebody new to replace the other person. For prevent this to happen thats why the plane company work more and check the people more. They will make new rules to control this situtation.

    If such a tragedy were to happen to our government it would be very bad because a lot of our government would be lost and there would be chaos. Our constitution plans ahead by having other people who could take there place like a Vice President or other senators who could take the place of others.

  3. If something like that were to happen it would be horrible. Maybe our nation's enemies may take advantage of the horrible disaster and try to hurt the U.S. The government knows that if something like that were to happen they have a backup plan. For example if the president were to get in an accident and died the Vice President would take command and would become the new president.

    This is a rare tragedy. How usual is it that the president and a lot of senior officials die in one plane crash. To prevent such a disaster, if there any weather problems they should be detected before any official is sent on the trip.

    This recent disaster is a terrible problem for the lives of these poor peoples families. Not only that but they were important government people and even the president. Poland has taken a huge fall and could be ruined for the next few years. If this happened in America, to the American government, the country would be in ruined. It could take years for any country to recover from an event like that.

  6. If something horrible like that where to happen to the U.S i would be scared because U.S has a lot of enemies that would probably want to take over America or torture the United citizens. Im glad that we have a smart government and that we also have a back up plan with the vice president!

    If this happened to our own government, it would be a complete disaster. The president is dead and many officials are dead. The people of the country would be shocked and worried. However, the United States government is prepared if this happens. Vice President Joe Biden would step in as President and the rest of the people in Congress and the White House would reassure the U.S. people that everything is under control. Hopefully some other countries would help the United States out too.

    If Presidnt Obama were to die; the constitution has a list of people who would take his place after his death. If president Obama were to die his Vice President, Joe Biden, would take his place as president

    This tragic accident in Poland is one that could have and should have been avoided. The plane crashed due to heavy fogs that the pilots were warned of, yet ignored. If this were to happen in America, the next living member in line for presidency would take control. We would have a new leader, but would also be strongly weakened. America's enemies would most likely attempt to use our weakness to attack us or our allies.

  10. This is an unimaginable tragedy. If this were to happen to our former president, the next person in line would take control, Joe Biden. The nation would be weakened greatly, but we are lucky enough to have someone to take Obama's place in case anything tragic does happen.

  11. This tragedy is something that is definitely not safe. IF this would have happened to our president, it would be horrible. But, even by just reading about this horrible even can really make others start to worry about what is going on hear also and to make actions on what is happening. This form of energy that is happening is very striking to others. Due to bad precautions, there was deaths, and if there possibly better cautions instructed, there would be more of a chance of surviving.

  12. This kind of a tragedy is so sad and makes me realize how fortunate we are in America to have someone to take place if our President were to need to drop out of his position for any reason. This country is already devastated enough as it is from all the loss they've experienced and to lose their governing on top of it, must be horrible.

  13. If something like that would to happen the US government that maybe would be the end of the US government because we have so many plans. or many other countries would it want to take over. The good news are that our government is well prepare for every situation. Thats why we always have vice president.

    This reminds me of the attack of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Many people, including me, believe that the terrorists were headed towards the White House after destroying the Pentagon. If the White House was indeed destroyed, that would have been a disaster, and it would remain a disaster right now. George W. Bush would die, and Vice President Richard Bruce Cheney would not replace him because he would die as well. There would be no President, and millions of the people in the United States would be killed. In case of such of a disaster, Barack Obama sent most of his troops to Afghanistan to find the villain, Osama Bin Laden. It is a good thing Barack Obama is President, now that I think about it. It is better than having no President.

  15. The way our country plans ahead incase of such disaster where our president dies, we have a vice president and other officials to help run our country. Hopefully a tragedy like this never occurs to us but if it ever does, we have many highly educated officials in our government.

  16. Our constitution plan to stop the from happening is by having other people in line to take the place of the President live the vice president and so on. It was sad to here that the Poland president died and the seniors because the death of anyone will not be that easy to hold back because those people have been working hard to help us live a better live then we have right know. Also its not a good thing the president is dead because the person who takes his place can be a horrible choose for the country because he might mean different then the pervious president.

  17. Does it really to be as shown, or there is something behind this? Presidential Flight should not be "Super" secured, and the pilot would pay extremely high attention for the flight period? There is something that let me feel it is not that much easy on this case. I am truly sorry for their lost, people who died are high educated political leaders, theirs death would be a significant politic shaft on this.

  18. In my opinion, this is one of the biggest disasters that can happen to one country - in few seconds, the top of one country disappeared. That could lead to the worst - there is nobody to control the country, people can do whatever they want, there could also be a civil war.
    Also, this was the biggest mistake that one country can do - to give one of the worst types of planes ever, with really bad crashing history + the plane was almost 30 years old, to its country's top.
    My condolences to whole Polish nation!

  19. If something terrible like that was to happen it would be really bad because it would take time to replace a government. Also the poor people would loose their jobs and would go hungry. It also would make other countries take advantage and take over the U.S.
