Plebiscite? or Pinochet? Which actually saves a nation from Castroism?–Any bets?

(Above left: This week in a plebiscite Venezuelans vote overwhelmingly against the Castro-puppet Maduro and the tens of thousands of Castroite apparatchiks who occupy their nation…let’s see how that works out. Above right: Some folks who quickly rid their nation of Castroite apparatchiks and their local puppets by other means.)

(Raul Castro and his current Venezuelan puppet Nicolas Maduro.  Fidel Castro and his late Chilean puppet Salvador Allende.)

(Pinochet’s forces give communists a taste of their own medicine on 9-11-73.  Anti-communist Chileans react by burning pictures of Allende, Castro and Che Guevara…In very short order Chile became prosperous and free.)

Never in the field of human conflict have so few airstrikes been so effective a weapon for nation-building.  (I refer to Pinochet’s couple of air-strikes against the bunker of Cuban-Soviet apparatchiks and their Chilean charges holed up in Chile’s Presidential palace on 9-11–1973 while plotting the further Castro-ization of Chile.)

A total of 3000 people–including all collateral-damage–died during Pinochet’s coup. Consequently Chile has been a free and prosperous nation (indeed, the envy of Latin-America) for decades now.

Compare that to the number of airstrikes, the death toll in the hundreds of thousands and the  putrid, ghastly, terror-ridden mess that Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan remain to this day….Le RRRRONCA!!!

After assuming power in 1970 (with roughly the same percentage of votes as Hitler garnered in Germany in 1933) Allende’s regime’s true colors were not long in manifesting. In January 1971 Allende’s minister Carlos Altamirano boasted that: “We’re following the example of the Cuban Revolution and counting on the support of her militant internationalism … represented by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Armed conflict in continental terms remains as relevant today as ever!”

“Hear me loud and clear!” Salvador Allende himself boasted the following month. “We will employ revolutionary violence!” (Is that so, Mr Allende? Well two can play at that game, answered Pinochet.)

  1. Say what you will, Allende is a Latrine icon for the ages. He should be studied assiduously and continuously, even if that is hardly likely to do the Latrines much good. See Venezuela.
