The tenth anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq seems like as good an excuse as any to remind ourselves of another historic low point in American intervention in foreign affairs, whose 40th anniversary is coming up soon. I’m talking about our complicity in the overthrow of Chile’s democratically elected Socialist president Salvador Allende and his replacement by general Augusto Pinochet, whose right-wing dictatorship lasted for more than 15 years after the 1973 coup d’ etat and resulted in thousands of deaths and disappearances.
