Bobby Fischer's Axis of Evil

Fresh off the plane in Iceland this Friday, anti-semitic former chess champ Bobby Fischer wasted no time in cementing his reputation as a deranged loon. The Associated Press reports:

On Friday, Fischer told reporters he was finished with a chess world he regards as corrupt, and sparred with U.S. journalists who asked about his anti-American tirades.

"The United States is evil. There's this axis of evil. What about the allies of evil the United States, England, Japan, Australia? These are the evildoers,"

...Fischer, whose mother was Jewish, accused "the Jew-controlled U.S. government' of ruining his life.
Iceland, a U.S. ally through NATO, might not have been the best choice for Bobby to make his new home. Sounds like he'd be a better fit in Iran.

Japan freed Bobby Fischer, who promptly fled to Iceland.

Question-- was he able to go straight there? Did he have to travel diagonally? Did his plane have to hop two countries forward, then one to the side?

Defending Bobby Fischer with his anti-Semitic diatribes, is only slightly easier that defending King Herod. But with Japan being thwarted in securing its long-cherished permanent seat on the UN Security Council, chickens have come home to roost. Of course there were other factors; Yasukuni Shrine visits by serving prime ministers, the whitewashing of Japan's war record in school textbooks, and lack of apology and compensation to "comfort women" and POW groups, all these played a role. However, the net result was a less than acceptable human rights image, of which the Bobby Fischer case may have been the last straw. When you consider the US was forcing Japan to break its own laws, the very least the US should have done was lend its unswerving support to Japan's UN application. However, Japan is learning what a lot of countries already know: Namely that the only interests the US has are its own.
