(CNN) -- Experts say the deaths of senior military chiefs in Saturday's plane crash could have more serious implications for Poland than the loss of the country's president.
President Lech Kaczynski was killed Saturday when a plane carrying senior Polish officials on their way to a memorial service in Russia crashed at an airport in Smolensk..
Ninety-seven people were killed including the president's wife, the deputy parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister and the head of the National Bank of Poland.
"The entire top military brass, including the chief of defense and all the services, were on the plane," said Tomas Valasek, of the Center for European Reform. "If that is true, then you're looking at a situation, in effect, of the decapitation of the military services."

Yep// just an accident I’m sure... uhhuh.
A Russian set-up.
This is very bad.
If we had a real president, he would immediately come out and say that Poland was a valued ally and that while the Polish people are putting their government back together, we stand ready to protect them from outside influences if need be. Instead, I expect Russia to invade Poland “in the interests of stabilizing them” because they know Obama won’t do a thing, just like he did nothing when they invaded Georgia. And of course, they won’t ever quite leave until they have installed a puppet regime of their choosing.
This many VIP’s should NEVER have been on the same plane.
No need to fear, Putin is investigating this one personally.
We Poles don’t take crap.
However with BO in the White House, the Russians win.
We will go down fighting.
Alexander Dugin must be postiviely giddy today.
“This many VIPs should NEVER have been on the same plane.”
This many VIPs should NEVER have been on the same plane-—ESPECIALLY on a Russian made plane, coming back from Russia.
Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, a win in Ukraine and now a major blow to Poland. If Poland wasn’t in EU and NATO it might have even crumbled.
One thing I learned from my military career is that everyone can be replaced. This was a tragedy for Poland, but others will step into the breaches.
This is no concidence .
New russian treaty signed while the Poles condemned it and the polish missle defense shield was removed.
we have the Soros/ Saudi puppet in the WH.
You mean like Turk?
Who just got back from a meeting with Obama.
So now Obama won’t have to worry about Poland’s lack of defense since it has none at all.
I’m sure that they will-Putin and 0bama puppets.
I’ll state the obvious: putting that many of a country’s leaders on one aircraft, especially on a Russian-made aircraft, is most unwise.
Ah, you beat me to it.
And two days after Putin visited Katyn:
Someone just wants to spoil improving relations between Poland and Russia.
Don’t put all your leadership in one basket is a lesson here.
It was shortsighted when flying into the USSR of Putin.
