Allende the communist was trying to do to Chile what Chavez is doing to Venezuela right now.
Chile is better today in spite of what did or didn't happen
(how can I trust Communist-left wing sources that the MSM consider infallible) under the rule of Pinochet.
If only we could emulate Chile's social security system here our future taxation and debt problems would be helped greatly.

Chile IS what Venezuela WAS. A Star of Hope in South America. Even Argentina never achieved the greatness of Chile.
I've older family in Venezuela and life sucks big time.
I recall Allende. Friends cheered him OUT....He allegedly aced himself with an AK that was gift from El Supremo...Fidelito.
This time of year, check out the labels at the fruit aisle of the grocery. CHILE. Also pick up a bottle or two of Concha y Toro...might even luck out and get a piece of Agentine or Brazilian beef...
Bottom line is Ippsy Dippsy Hugo is trash. Same for the new guy in Bolivia.
