09/11/1973
CIA-supported military coup overthrows the democratically-elected Socialist President of Chile, ending rule of Democratic elections that had been in place since 1932. Thousands killed, tens of thousands tortured, economy driven into depression, and a major terrorist operation was established which suppressed all Left-leaning political voices and set about overthrowing governments and setting up more Right-wing dictatorships all over the world.



But we don't talk about that.
