Chess grandmaster goes after dictators; DPRK's latest threat


I wanted to point out an article in this weekend’s “Epoch Times” by Eyal Levinter, “Chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov fights the world’s dictators”, link.  There is a certain focus on Vladimir Putin. He makes an analogy to chess positions where one side (White usually) has a positional advantage or initiative, which will turn against him if he doesn’t press his advantage properly.

  

On CNN, Brian Todd reports that North Korea claims its mid range missiles can reach the Alaskan Aleutian Islands, where the US has military bases.
