So your impression of a proper democracy is that a 1% plurality decision in a parliamentary chamber to determine the Presidency grants that President a mandate to overthrow the democratic system of governance that brought him to power and establish a totalitarian Marxist regime in its place? You would further argue that when the very same Legislative body that granted him the 1% plurality win votes for him to step down and is joined by the highest court in the land that he should not resign his seat? Seriously? It seems that you are very much in favor of dictatorship so long as it is a leftwing dictatorship.The people of these country;s have the right to choose who they want in power,not who the US want because it does not suit their political agenda.
We have opposed numerous dictatorships too, but your original assertion is that we have opposed democratic systems of governance because they were left wing and favored rightwing dictatorships, when the fact of the matter is that Allende was not a pro-democracy member of the left, rather he was attempting to destroy the liberal democratic republic of Chile and replace it with a totalitarian Marxist dictatorship.The US likes to claim itself as the "Great Bastion of Democracy" yet it has backed numerous dictators,what hypocrites they are !
"Everyone knows" bull**** revisionist history then apparently.everyone knows it
Do you have any evidence of direct CIA involvement in the coup? Did they fund, arm, or order Pinochet to implement a coup? Once again Pinochet was ordered by the other two branches of the Chilean government to remove Allende from power for his numerous violations of the Chilean Constitution. I provided both resolutions which you continue to ignore.and the CIA were involved.
So you are saying that the CIA had no involvement in these coups and that these two elected officials were the bad guys ?
YouTube - Lessons of History - Coup of 1953
I think there is some proof in the post's above !
Not doubt you will still be in denial of CIA involvement and that these coups did not happen !!!!!
