What about the other 9/11?

Was democracy on the march 34 years ago?

Some of us have been marking the atrocities of September 11 for 34 years. On September 11, 1973, Nixon, Kissinger and their pals at ITT went beyond “making the Chilean economy scream” and enjoyed a full-blown military assault against Chile which began the bloody fascist coup there. Here is a very brief history of that September 11 from Wikipedia, which offers extensive links to some other basic readings and chronologies. (See sources at the end). On September 11, 2003, people asked “Why Do they hate US?” The events of September 11, 1973 were just one good, ironic example.
