    Re: Breaking: Former U.S.-Backed Guatemalan Dictator Found Guilty of Genocide in Historic Trial

    Historic trial, my foot.

    Mass-murdering Marxist terrorists with blood on their hands are considered 'heroes to  the usual useful idiots of the Left. 

    Front Page magazine:

    In Guatemala and El Salvador, where Marxist guerrillas lost civil wars and then entered politics (so far with little success), their fellow travelers in justice and human rights want to put on trial the military and the large majority who supported them during the 1980s. Thus, Menchú’s campaign against Efraim Rios Montt, a Guatemalan junta leader in 1983 who had been popularly elected (and defrauded by the military) in 1976, and was also a military victor against the Left in 1970 and again in 1983. The accusation? "Genocide," despite the fact that the victorious military of Rios Montt, his predecessors and successors were mostly Indian, fighting mostly terrorist groups led by Marxist white intellectuals.

    The common thread running through all these developments is that the very same Left that failed, and was defeated, in its violent campaigns is now trying, with considerable success, to win in the eyes of "justice" and "law" what it lost in the military and public opinion fields. When an entire generation is being taught a false version of the recent past, under the noble rubric of "human rights," an entire future generation of leaders will be unprepared to deal with threats to freedom; when the initiators of the civil wars of the 1970 and 80s—the spoiled sons and daughters of dysfunctional middle classes in most cases—are seen as innocent victims of uniformed guerillas, rather than terrorist totalitarians, morality and truth are the true victims.

    Would Chile be better off now if Allende and his minority clique, rather than Pinochet's free marketers, succeeded in their goals? Would a Marxist El Salvador be better off than the present model? Would a Moscow-controlled Spain, likely a member of the Warsaw Pact, be the thriving European Union member and democracy it is today? The answer to all these questions should be obvious, but instead, the very notions of justice and human rights are being distorted to further an alternative totalitarian history.

    August 28th, 1968 was a hot day in Guatemala City when U.S. ambassador John Gordon Mein drove towards the U.S. Embassy. Within minutes, the unarmed ambassador was gunned down by a death squad sent by the FAR (Fuerzas Armadas Rebeldes – Rebel Armed Forces), a Marxist guerrilla group involved in the country’s long civil war.

    A group of gunmen in green fatigues blocked the ambassador’s chauffer-driven Cadillac as he drove back in the mid-afternoon traffic. Trapped between a Buick and a red pick up, Mein was ordered to get out of the car. As Mein tried to escape, one of the assassins ordered: “Shoot him. Kill him.” With machine guns and pistols they opened fire on the unarmed Mein. Moments later Mein lay dead on the street, eight bullets in his back.

    He was the first U.S. ambassador assassinated in the line of duty.

    Allende the Marxist thug is the hero to brainless American radicals....they dont know history..or much else..

    The Chilean Marxist, Salvador Allende, was elected president in 1970 on only 36 per cent of the vote. He needed to govern in a moderate centre-left manner to carry the 60 per cent-plus who had voted for centre and right-wing parties. Instead, with the encouragement of his own hard-left and Castro agitators, he struck out in a Marxist direction.

    Student revolutionaries and other middle-class trendies of the time rushed from all over the world to Santiago to help in the cause. A few went from Britain, many more from Spain, where the Franco regime did not tolerate their Marxist fantasies. The consequences for Chilean democracy (until his accession the most stable in Latin America), human rights and prosperity were disastrous.

    The Allende regime set about implementing dogmatic far-left reforms for which he had no mandate, confiscating property, debasing the currency (inflation at one stage topped 1,000 per cent), seizing businesses, intimidating the opposition and bankrupting newspapers which dared to criticise him.

    Within months of Allende taking power, armed gangs of leftist thugs invaded homes and took over factories. It was all done with the active encouragement of Castro, which saw Allende's Chile as the new beachhead for Cuban-style Communism throughout Latin America. By 1972, while the Soviet Union was awarding Allende the Lenin Peace Prize, Chilean society was in meltdown.

    A relatively prosperous country was now gripped by food shortages and strikes. Farms taken over by Communist cadres discussed Marxist dialectics while crops failed. Factories in the grip of Soviet-style committees produced next to nothing. A relatively free society was on the brink of a Marxist terror as Allende's tanks took to the streets and military henchmen were shoehorned into a civilian cabinet.

    "The task of the moment," claimed one of Allende's Marxist allies "is to destroy parliament." The hard left was now systematically arming itself for a full-blown Communist revolution - it had more guns at its disposal than the Chilean army. It was then that Pinochet and the generals seized power and their Fascistic reign of terror began.
