Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov has completed a 5-day jail sentence after being arrested for participating in an anti-Putin rally. He had appealed the sentence, but his appeal was denied.
The U.S. response has been decidedly weak, with vacuous comments about one friend (I guess that would be the United States) counseling another (our buddy Russia) not to do things that are detrimental to its own well-being.
I am disappointed that our government did not greet this action with the condemnation it deserved. And I think this is one brave man.
