But is it enough?

So now, Polish officials will have the authority to order hijacked aircraft shot down.

Where to begin? Firstly, I'm surprised such a law needed to be passed. I would have guessed there was something like that already existed.

But how prepared are the country's police and fire forces for a real terrorist attack?

Access to important buildings is alarmingly easy, and most of those in Warsaw (the prime target, I'm sure) have only rudimentary security. That security makes it very hard to get into a building if you have important business there, but would probably help little in case of a terrorist attack.

Many nightclubs are underground and have only one exit.

The hospitals are in an awful state. What if it had to treat many injured?

The Palace of Culture and Science? Take the elevator right up sir.

Where are the real reforms?
