The idea of an other September 11 must seem incredible to some. But as Ariel Dorfman comments: During the last 28 years, September 11 has been a date of mourning, for me and millions of others. This book reclaims that other September 11, when the Chilean armed forces, under Pinochet, ousted the democratically-elected government of President Allende in a coup.
It reminds us that the horror visited upon the Chilean people on that day and for nearly two decades thereafter was a result of continuous US involvement in that country. As the US, after its own September 11, has embarked on an ambitious and brutal imperial offensive, it is important to remind ourselves that the history of this imperialism goes back a long way, as does the history of resistance to it.
I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people.
