For those of you who now are lost, let's go back in time and get some history into those brain cells:
A military junta led by Allende's Army Commander-in-Chief Augusto Pinochet eventually took control of the government, composed of the heads of the
Air Force, Navy, Carabineros (police force) and the Army. Pinochet later assumed power and ended Allende's elected Popular Unity
government, instigating a campaign of terror on its supporters which included the murder of former Foreign Minister Orlando Letelier. Before
Pinochet's rule, Chile had for decades been hailed as a beacon of democracy and political stability in South America plagued by military juntas and
The U.S. Government's hostility to the election of Allende in Chile was substantiated in documents declassified during the Clinton
administration; involving the CIA, which show that covert operatives were inserted in Chile, in order to prevent a Marxist government from arising and
for the purpose of spreading anti-Allende propaganda.
Ironically... this thread FITS in the 9/11 conspiracy section, simply because there was indeed a conspiracy to end the government of a democratically
elected official and it happened on sept. 11th.
How many died in Chile simply because the US didn't like the voting results? And how many died during the inside job of 2001?
I think Chile deserves more remembrance than 2001 to be honest.
