Quoting from
http://www.fide.com/component/conten...ar-assad-.html

"[...] Kirsan Ilyumzhinov visited Syria on 28-29 April 2012. As Mr.
Ilyumzhinov noted, on the 29th April he had a three-hour talk with the
President of Syria Bachar Assad in Damascus."

Did they discuss how the game of chess can help to improve the skills of
Bachar's terror brigades?

"in early June, as a dedication to the International Day of Children, we
are planning to organize the first international youth chess tournament,
where young players of Arab countries, will participate, in Damascus".

Great news for Syrian children -- they can play chess while their moms
and dads are getting shot on the streets.

Let's face reality: Kirsan has never been abducted by aliens and he will
never be. We will have to deal with this issue ourselves. World is
discussing military intervention in Syria but what about military
intervention in Lausanne?

Why does it have to be disgraceful to be a chess player?

Hey. You have to give the guy credit. He has all the best friends in
the highest places.

First he made friends with Saddam Hussein.

Then he made friends with Gadhafy.

Now he is friends with Bachar Assad in Syria.

Naturally, I have a book out about this.

Whether you are actually violating his copyright or not, if he thinks you are, you may be in for some rough sailing. How good are you at using crutches?

Why are you bringing up copyright?

I got permission from the FIDE Head Office in Elista to reprint this
book.

I never reprint a book by any living person without permission from
that person.

What is it about the word "if" that you don't understand?
