Dictator who ruled Chile with an iron fist from 1973 to 1990. Pinochet headed the military junta that controlled the country after a coup that deposed the democratically elected president Salvador Allende. During his reign, Pinochet ordered the violent suppression of all political opposition to his government. A commission determined that his military and government were responsible for human rights violations, including more than 2,000 deaths and untold numbers of disappearances.
All opposition parties were banned, the press was censored and dissidents up and down the country were abducted and executed without trial. The notorious Caravan of Death, an Army death squad flew the length of the country by helicopter in October 1973, extinguishing 97 influential opposition figures. Even dissidents that had fled the country were not out of Pinochet’s reach. Operation Condor, tracked the numerous Chileans that had fled into exile. No-one was safe from Pinochet’s paranoid anti-communist drive. General Prats, Augusto Pinochet’s predecessor in the role of Commander in Chief, was killed in Buenos Aires in 1974.

Pinochet is pronounced Pino – Chay. The t is silent.

I saw Augusto Pinochet offer free helicopter rides at the local lesbian dance theory class at my community college the other day. For some strange reason, there are less blue haired people these days.

Salvador Allende was the first Marxist ever to be elected to the national presidency of a liberal democracy with 33% of the vote and unconstitutional partnerships during the Cold War. Invited 50-year Cuban dictator Fidel Castro to Chile for 23 days for advice on how to change constitution and carry out communist-led revolution alike 1948 Czechoslovak coup d'état to turn Chile into a second Cuba. Plan backfired. Allende's presidency was ended by opposing forces on second attempt aka 1973 Chilean coup d'état. Augusto Pinochet led those forces and used any means necessary to get the job done.
-Study confirms that you can make Americans believe anything that international communism says about Salvador Allende if they fail to Wikipedia fact check. Augusto Pinochet led the forces that took Allende and his personal militia following to the ground and prevented Chile from becoming a new Cuba.

-I can be super chill and smoke weed and read about democratic ideas but will fact check before glorifying communist leaders like Stalin who killed millions or Salvador Allende who almost did the same as he attempted to turn Chile into a second Cuba before Augusto Pinochet forceful military intervention.
