Chess Great Kasparov: Berlin Wall Is Gone, but Cold War Isn't

By    |   Wednesday, 12 Nov 2014 09:17 PM

Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov says President Barack Obama must take a stand against Russian President Vladmir Putin and stop pretending the United States can do business with Putin.

Appearing Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren," Kasparov said that while the Berlin Wall has been gone for 25 years this month, the Cold War is still around.

Putin makes foreign aggression his key message to the Russian public, Kasparov said, and without stronger U.S. leadership, Putin will be emboldened to continue his foray into Ukraine and more.

In 2008 and 2012, Democrats called Republican presidential candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney "far-right dinosaurs" because of their view of Putin's Russia, Kasparov said, but, he said, "They were not far right. They were simply right."

While fighting dictators and terrorists, he added, "we'd better have T. Rex on our side."

What is truly extinct, he said, are strong principles and leadership in the Obama administration.
