"Allende had campaigned on a program of social and economic justice, and we knew that the government of President Richard M. Nixon, allied with Chile’s oligarchs, would do everything it could to stop Allende’s nonviolent revolution from gaining power."
You mean:
Allende was a Communist thug, who had sold the social justice scam to roughly 1/3 of naive people, and backed by The USSR, and the murderous Cuban tyrants, had militarized his political party, and pressed forward to enslave his people too, while destroying every institution. And we knew freedom loving Chileans, with aid from the US, would do what was necessary to save Chile from the abuse of power, and yes violence, of the radical left.

And yet, John, you never complained when the Obama administration used taxpayer money to influence the last Israei election. Hmmmm.

And the relevance is? I am against the US using taxpayer money in an attempt to influence the election outcome in any country. However, it is absurd to suggest that the $233,500 given by the State Department to OneVoice (a New York non-profit) was a serious attempt to influence the outcome of the last Israeli election.

Trump's cabinet nominees are establishment elites...so much for 'draining the swamp' in Washington. Moreover, the potential conflicts of interest are mind boggling.

Insightful quote by Peter Henning, constitutional law professor at Wayne State University...

"I am always wary of people who say 'we have to run the country like a business' -- businesses aren't responsible for defense or caring for the elderly," he said. "Businesses are driven with one guiding principle -- to make the most money -- and that should not be the role of the government."

Revisionist? Hardly.
You have be a leftist to think freely elected with 37% is a mandate to abuse every legal institution.

I never claimed that Allende had a mandate. But, he was legally elected and your attempt at trying to justify the coup d'etat against him is indicative of your warped political belief system.

I appreciate the compliment. Thanks again.
