Open Letter to Kim Jong Il

As most of you should know by now, the North Koreans have reportedly carried out a nuclear test. If true, it's rather worrying especially for those of us who live in the region. (I say, "if true" because there seems to be some speculation that it may have been a fake nuclear test).

Anyway, you're now wondering what all this has to do with a chess blog.

Nothing really, except for this open letter by Brad Schader.

Dear Kim Jong-Il,

I would love to play you in a game of Chess because you obviously go for instant gratification over longevity. You do not seem like the type who thinks three moves ahead. You do not seem like the type to expect your enemy to do anything other than cave in. You seem like the concept of defeat is beneath you. Your people may believe these things and let you rule them, but the world does not and will not.

He must have learned something from those two guys in Elista and their respective managers.
