May you roast in hell, Augusto Pinochet. And say hi to all of history’s war criminals for me while you are there.
Gen. Augusto Pinochet, who overthrew Chile’s democratically elected Marxist president in a bloody coup and ruled the nation for 17 years, died today. He was 91. Pinochet had suffered a heart attack a week ago. Chile’s government says at least 3,197 people were killed for political reasons during his rule, but Pinochet escaped hundreds of criminal complaints because of his declining physical and mental health.
Oh, poor him. I surely hope the people of the U.S. learn and don’t let George W. Bush of the hook as well.
