AJ of Alaska: <Joshka: Professional high level chess stinks to high heaven. Kirsan wants to be dictator for life!! Just like Putin>
I usually try to respond to all posts addressed at me, but in your case I am tempted to make an exception to that rule!
You are obviously a seriously deranged individual, or (and I hope for your sake that this is the reason) you are deliberately provocative just to get angry reactions.
Your "opinions" are laughable.
Before Kirsan FIDE was a mess. No money, no sponsors, NOTHING!
FIDE was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the time and was in a deep economic and political crisis (it was essentially on the brink of splitting).
Ilyumzhinov proclaimed FIDE an organization not for two great chess players, but rather for thousands of professional chess players, hundreds of national chess federations, and millions of chess enthusiasts.
This declaration ultimately was vindicated: FIDE currently counts 181 countries as its members, which makes it one of the world’s largest sports organizations. Under Ilyumzhinov’s leadership, FIDE was able to recover from its critical state.
I could go on and on...
<Since you must be on Kirsan's payroll, has he ever taken you aboard the spaceship with the aliens?? Yea what do you say about that???>
Kirsan is an eccentric. That is one of his traits and it is essential to understand the man. Many highly creative, ingenious people have their fair share of eccentricities!
I don't purport to understand much of his stories about aliens, but are they relevant? He is a great leader, that is what is relevant. And great, imaginative people can have some strange ideas, sometimes!
President Reagan is universally acknowledged as a great leader. Yet, it is well known that he, through the enthusiastic input from his wife, relied on astrology for guidance in making important political decisions. What do you think about that, Joshka? Does that take away anything from Reagan, the great man?
Stop spreading lies and disinformation about FIDE and Kirsan, Joshka.
I suspect that you are connected to Kasparov in some way, perhaps you know him? Do you? Because, this is exactly what he and his friends do, spreading lies and disinformation about alleged "crimes" and corruption.
In nineteen years we have not had a single case of corruption in FIDE!
That is something Kirsan is very proud of.
