9/11 -- Thirty-Two Years On
Today is the thirty-second anniversary of the coup in Chile; a coup in which a terrorist superpower overthrew a democratically-elected government.
Few Americans will remember this anniversary, they'll be solemnly remembering one of their own -- an anniversary brought about, in part at least, because of the kind of imperialist despotism that September 11, 1973 so clearly reminds us.
Long live the memory of Salvador Allende and the brave Chilean people!

As noted at ComingAnarchy.com -- Nixon and Kissinger did not organize or support the coup against Allende in 1973. The US and the CIA did consider and try out contingency plans in 1970 about removing Allende if he went Soviet-Marxist, but Pinoche's coup was not supported by Washington.
