so much for russian reforms, says he was beaten, very disturbing
"The city gave the organizers permission to hold the rally but forbid them to march to the Central Elections Commission."
"They moved in after the rally had ended and about 150 of the protesters, mainly Limonov's young activists, began to march toward the Central Elections Commission. "
"Kasparov had not joined the young protesters who had broken away from the crowd. He was detained after walking over to see what had happened to them."
"The former chess champion was forced to the ground and beaten, his assistant Marina Litvinovich said in a telephone interview from outside the police station where Kasparov was held."
Kasparov's arrestment (a photo from Russian site)
He was on Bill Maher a little while back talking about his campaign for the presidency among other things -- here's the interview:
AFAIK, Kasparov isn't russian. He was born in Baku, so he is native Azerbaijanian, I think. What does he do in russian politics and why?
JFYI: Kasparov arrested for five days due to legal abuse.
note to StacyBearden:
I'm sure Kasparov will not be poisoned or shot. There is no need to kill a clown. He'd better play chess, not politics...
There's a list of the other "clowns" Putin and the other "former" KGB men have silenced. I don't know much about Kasparov's political leanings other than what I've seen on interviews and read on-line, but he's no Putin. And he's no communist. Kasparov is an intellectual. Putin is a thug. Russia would be lucky to have any clown in place of Putin and his criminal followers. By the way: Israel's security and mid-East diplomacy would have to benefit with Kasparov replacing Putin.
Kasparov is a "clown" because you disagree with him?
There can never be too many opposition parties, for there is always the danger of a one-party system.
I agree that your critics should not pay attention to mass media, but perhaps you should not set so much store by what you "know" either. The elections probably were not faked, but then again there is the off-chance that they might have been. And since in this case it would have been you, the voters, who would have been hoodwinked, how can you be sure?

You don't know anything about his political leanings but you make your conclusion that he would be good president.
Do you vote on USA presidential election the same way?
By the way: I think that russian president must take care of Russia's securuty, not Israel's one.
I don't know any specifics on his political leanings, I said, other than what I have read and seen. Read my post completely before you insult me ignorantly. And for Israel's security issue, Russia is being reported as having talks with Israel's enemies and supporting them against Israel. Since Israel is the only real ally to the West in the mid-East, their security should be an importance to every nation, Dio-gen. You should have learned from history that a nation's security, in part, relies on keeping its allies secure. That's just common foreign policy. It does strike me, and the rest of the world, that the current Russian government is not an ally of Israel. That puts Russia somewhat at odds with the West...and with God, for that matter. But that's for a whole different post.
