Well some wee guy from America played a game of chess for $3m and is going to jail in the US for breaching UN sanctions. The land of the free. I think not. If it had been played in Isreal, during sanctions, do you honestly think the US would have asked for his extradition? Me neither.
But to jail some wee guy for being paid to play a couple of games of chess in Yugoslavia, get a life.
Did this have a detremental effect on your life? or in reallity did anyone die because of it?
Who cares if he plays a game in Cuba? I mean how many US citizens go to cuba for a holiday each year contributing millions to the cuban economy and how much do US businessmen make from Cuba each year. Much more than they would ever pay someone for a game of chess.
If he is not what we would call of the normal IQ score whats his chances of going to the nut hoose under the present system that you have in the US
So in reality why are the US govt persuing some wee chess player?
Me thinks he has a massive oil reserve in his garden and Messers Bush and Rumsfeld want it.
Well there is no other reason for it is there.
