Remembering 9/11

In imitation of many French socialists, my 9/11 commemoration is that of the events of September 11th, 1973, in Chile. However contra socialists, I greet the General Pinochet as a tyrannicide, the savior of Chile, and loathe Allende as its tyrant and destroyer. At the same time, we must remember that Allende was not killed by Pinochet, but by a cuban agent, whom Castro had entrusted with the mission of making sure that Allende, a liability while alive, would eventually die "a hero" — like that other monster Guevara before.
