However, when the ENTIRE ruling elite of a country is decimated in a plane crash
A plane carrying Polish President Lech Kaczynski and much of the nation's ruling elite crashed landed in the Russian city of Smolensk on Saturday killing all 96 people on board.Right after an agreement was signed for missile defense shield installation that was viewed as a 'grave security threat' by Russia
Poland on Tuesday agreed to a new version of a deal on stationing an American missile shield, a government statement said, adding it would be aimed essentially at potential threats from Iran.And at the same time, Kyrgyzstan's new leaders are accepting support from Russia, meaning that the US-backed government run by Bakiyev's (put in place during the Tulip revolution in 2005 with US involvement, and as usual, it was a corrupt and authoritarian regime), no longer in power, will not be able to accomadate the US military base that was supposed to be set up there in Manas, a base that would've been key to a supply route for the Afghan War, not to mention its usefulness as a listening station into Xinjiang or as a possible expansion point into Central Asia for NATO, well, one has to wonder just how dicey Russian and US relations are getting. I mean, it can't have been a coincidence that the take-over happened on the same day that the US and Russia signed the new arms control pact. That's sending quite a message if I ever heard one.
Somebody doesn't want stability in the region. Who it is, I have NO idea.
Update: Might've been the bankers
The Polish government and the National Bank of Poland, in a “rare moment of unity,” agree to weaken Poland’s currency, the zloty, in an act that would benefit Poland’s exporters at the expense of Poland’s trading partners—that is, the European Union, among others. Then, the next day, Poland’s president and the president of its national bank die in a plane crash.
