Feb-15-05  Where is my mind: <That is what I'm talking about, vulgar propaganda that too many people buy.>Yes I bought it,documentaries always give the immpresion of Milosovic manipulation. I was using the "democracies"/"non-democracies" method of judement.I found a book review of Diana Johnstone's "Fool's Crusade" I'll read it today.
Feb-15-05  euripides: <sd> I realised there was an attempt at humour. What I didn't realise, reading rather quickly, was that the second sentence was addressed at the Yuglosavs rather than at me. Given that, the smiley wouldn't have made much difference. My misunderstanding. Peace !
Feb-18-05  Where is my mind: This is some interesting information I missed while indulging in vulgar propaganda,<At the Davos summit of neo-liberal chieftains in 1999, Blair berated Belgrade, not for its handling of Kosovo, but for its failure to fully embrace "economic reform". In the bombing campaign that followed, it was state owned companies, rather than military sites, that were targeted. Nato's destruction of only 14 Yugoslav army tanks compares with its bombing of 372 centres of industry, including the Zastava car factory, leaving hundreds of thousands jobless. "Not one foreign or privately owned factory was bombed," wrote Clark. >

Aug-09-06  franksp: Some people I regard as war criminals get reelected and are very popular. I suppose an unprovoked invasion is OK as long as it happens to someone else.

Need I mention names?

May-09-11  SvetlanaBabe: I saw him play at the end of his career at the Melbourne Chess Club at 483 Elizabeth St in the late 1970's. he was still more than competitiveagainst a new generation of budding IMs and GMs who felt very lucky to even draw against him! He was a top player.
RIP Mr Ozols. Keep playing that Leningrad Dutch!

How tall was he?

Dec-13-13  SvetlanaBabe: Do you think on a chess site people want to know how tall Mr Ozols was? LOL!

  perfidious: If Ozols had been a gnome, some should surely have been concerned over this-although it surely does not matter!

  MissScarlett: <How tall was he?>

Good question! It seems from photos that he could have been up to 8 feet tall.

Jul-10-15  zanzibar: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...

Can you spot the 8' tall man in this picture?

Jul-12-15  jerseybob: zanzibar: Reminds me of a "Far Side" cartoon I saw years ago: A gunslinger looking into a saloon says "I'm lookin' for the the one they call Horseface". And sitting at a table, playing cards, there he was.

Nov-04-16  optimal play: <offramp: <SvetlanaBabe: I saw him play at the end of his career at the Melbourne Chess Club...> How tall was he?> Was he wearing his old WWII Nazi uniform?

Anyway, he competed in the 1969 Australian Championship finishing a credible =5th

This win is from round 5...
