Sometimes to better understand the present one needs to study the past. Things are often not what they appear to be and nothing is black and white.

The US has a long history of trying to control events and politics in Latin America. It is always to the detriment of the poorest and most vulnerable citizens of those nations.

It is not difficult for agencies such as the CIA et al to create massive economic problems and societal difficulties, including massive shortages of essential daily staples of life and then claim it is the fault of the government and its leaders.

Read the shattering account of what took place in Chile in the 1970′s and how the US helped bring down, via a Military Coup, the democratically elected President of Chile, Salvador Allende, leading to more than a decade of blood thirsty and brutal repression, torture, widespread disappearances and murder by General Pinochet and his sadistic Military Junta.

This was all made possible via the massive assistance of the CIA in toppling President Salvador Allende whilst later the US released all the usual mealy mouthed platitudes about how much the US “deplored” the violence and denial of basic “human rights” under the “Pinochet Regime”.

It was later revealed that General Pinochet had personally amassed more than $ 28,000,000 (Twenty Eight Million) dollars in outside of the country, off shore bank accounts- equal to $ 100,000,000 in today’s dollars.

Here are just a few examples of what Americans in positions of power have said about Latin America over the last one hundred years.

“I am going to teach the South American Republics to elect good men.” – Woodrow Wilson, 1913

“I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people.”
-Henry Kissinger (27 June 1970), in a meeting of the US “40 Committee” overseeing covert actions

“Not a nut or bolt shall reach Chile under Allende. Once Allende comes to power we shall do all within our power to condemn Chile and all Chileans to utmost deprivation and poverty.”
– Edward Korry, US Ambassador to Chile, upon hearing of Medical Doctor, President Salvador Allende’s election.

Please read the shattering and ultimately heart breaking book:

“THE MURDER OF ALLENDE” by Dr. Robinson Rojas available at Amazon

To understand and influence the future one MUST know the past.
