That is what the declassified documents say. CIA declassified documents. Suuuuure. Have you checked other sources? This was a mere extension, a 3000 mile extension of the Monroe doctrine, no?<quoted text>
You do know that Salvador Allende was a Marxist and committed suicide, don't you?
And that the CIA and Nixon had NOTHING to do with the coup. Ir is your hatred of Nixon and you love of Marxist that twists your opinion!

Declassified documents related to the military coup have shown that although the CIA didn't "instigate" the 1973 coup, they were well aware of it and knew about it in advance. However, the US refused to "provide any assistance" because it was "strictly an internal Chilean matter." According to CIA documents, the United States "probably appeared to condone [the coup]," considering their intelligence collection and active participation in positively slanting propaganda in 1974 to place Pinochet and his military government in a positive light.
Yes, Allende was a Marxist. So? He was democratically elected. Because he was a Marxist, he deserved to be deposed, and killed?
You don't guess or think or believe he committed suicide. Nooooo. YOU were there, like in the Z-M thing, and you saw it all. I BELIEVE , I GUESS, I THINK he was killed by Pinochet's men. No one knows for sure, Rogue, but you let your phantasms dictate what you declare, not the truth.
I am sure Allende's gov't was heading for financial ruin. He was far too idealistic. But, as I said, he was elected democratically. Pinochet took over. Killings, killings and killings, almost as bad as the U.S.-backed junta in neighbouring Argentina. U.S.-backed until the fools decided to invade the Malvinas`Falkkands and they had to choose between the UK and Argentina. Agonizing, but they chose Argentina. I digress. As usual. LMAO (LRS tm reg<d). Thousands of innocents people summarily executed. You did not want to go to the football stadium in Santiago in those first months of barbarian killer Pinochet's reign. If the US was so passive, had nothing to do with the coup, why'd didn't they warn Allende? As far as I know, Chile was a U.S. ally, not an enemy. Oh, those big American copper and aluminum companies...I see.
