Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh come on.

Let's see, Russia and Poland were on the precipice of the best improvement in relations they've had in generations, so kill Putin kills the Polish president.  That makes perfect sense.  Far more sense than the air traffic controlers' repeated requests not to land here in these conditions.  Yes, perfectly.

I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised by the class with Russia has handled this, and the sobriety with which the Polish people reacted.  I live in a city that claims to have the largest population of Poles outside Warsaw, and we've had tons of local coverage of the event.  Not once have I heard blame or even criticism of Russia, and several Polish dignitaries have even praised Putin's handling of the event.
