Quote of the Day – Gary Kasparov Edition
“We have finally found Obama’s red line. Now if Syria doesn’t comply, the U.S. has the right to go to the UN, where it can be blocked by… Putin! The road from ‘we must strike and punish Assad’ to ‘we must accept this feeble (non) deal is just staggering. America has now authorized al-Assad to stay in power until this process is completed. The process will of course be endless. Far from Syria, Putin’s position is now stronger in Russia. He impresses the oligarchs he needs and can crack down harder on the opposition.”
He knows a thing or two about playing a chess game.
