September 11, 2001: A small group of radicals executes a strike on American soil. The terrorists hijack three planes and succeed in flying two of them into the World Trade Center. Hundreds of innocent civilians loose their lives in the destruction. Hundreds more loose moms, dads, brothers and sisters in a tragic, and unprovoked attack.
September 11, 1973: A U.S. orchestrated and financed coup d’état overthrows democratically elected President, Salvador Allende, to install military dictator, Augusto Pinochet. Pinochet rules Chile from 1973 to 1990, during which time he is responsible for the disappearance of over 3,000 Chileans, murders, concentration camps, and the torture of over 30,000 people.
Its 9/11 today. Its a good time to remember the victims — all of them. There are more innocent lives lost, throughout the world, every day.
Thanks to our American friend, Karl, for the history lesson.
