Pinochet Links

Who is this General Augusto Pinochet guy? Here we take you on a tour of web sites from around the world from those who loathe him, and those who worship him. Those who supported him and those who were executed by him.


The hero of the left who Pinochet ousted from office, then executed:

Salvador Allende
"Salvador Allende was elected, by popular vote, as President of Chile in 1970. He stood on the Marxist platform of Unidad Popular. Nixon and Kissinger were apoplectic about his election from day one."
- Personal tribute by a Billy Bragg fan

"Chilean History"
"In a display of unpardonably bad conduct, the Chilean people elect Salvadore Allende president."


I don't see why we should have to stand by and let a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people'
- Henry Kissinger

Pinochet's friends:

Margaret ThatcherMargaret Thatcher
Pinochet is believed to have allowed the British to use parts of southern Chile as a jumping off point for attacks on Argentine air bases during the Falklands War. The General is a big 'Maggie' fan - apparently he calls her office to arrange afternoon tea every time he visits London.

Update: Thatcher welcomed at Pinochet's Wentworth house for coffee - March '99

The Central Intelligence Agency
"You are entering an Official United States Government System...The Government may monitor and audit the usage of this system, and all persons are hereby notified that use of this system constitutes consent to such monitoring and auditing."


The General takes his seat in the senate "guaranteeing" him immunity from prosecution:
