Bobby was another person who was "too honest to live in this world."
He was a childhood hero of mine.
The U.S. government chased him all over the world BECAUSE HE PLAYED CHESS IN YUGOSLAVIA IN 1992!
At the time he was broke and took an offer to play chess for a 5 million dollar purse.
The U.S. State Dept sent him a letter warning him against playing the match due to U.S. economic sanctions on Yugoslavia.
So Bobby spit on the document and crumpled it up in front of the world media!
He went on to Play Boris Spassky in a rematch of their 1972 match.
Fischer was one of the most intelligent men in world history and knew exactly the dirty deeds being done by the U.S. government.
He was hunted down by Bush and the U.S. until Iceland took him in (basically as an exiled political prisonor) befoer he died a couple years later.
VIVA LA FISCHER!
