As opposed to his (heehee!)
He hadn't exactly "gotten away with it." His US passport was revoked. He couldn't go anywhere that had a mutual extradition treaty with the US. The US State Department stood readgy to bring him back and try him for violating sanctions- meaning he would have to forfeit all the money he won, serve time in prison, and lose his right to leave the US ever again. He became a man without a country. I think that's harsh- our country has a terrible attitude, in my opinion.
He should consider himself lucky, the usual penalty for violating sactions is a B-52 bombing run.
Unless you're from Langley.
I don't believe the US has any right to keep a world-class grandmaster from playing anywhere he wants to.
Even if he was a giant flaming nutball.
our country has a terrible attitude, in my opinion.
So do you. Taking the side of somebody the cheered the death of thousands makes you a real piece of shit in my book. I'd like you to face the families of those that lost loved ones in those terror attacks, play a recording of Fischer cheering the deaths, and then tell those families you stand up to be counted with Fischer. If I were there, it would be very hard for me to refrain from breaking my foot off in your douchebag ass.
giant RACIST flaming nutball :)
Some of you posting now sound way more bonkers than he ever was.
really, I have yet to read anyone on here cheering the destruction and deaths of thousands of people and then blaming on a Jewish conspiracy.
That's because this is a chess website not a conspiracy monster-raving-loony one.
