Latin American Dictators, and Atrocities Overlooked (John Heelan, -UK, 03/05/19 3:49 am)

Given his antipathy to "the Empire," Eugenio Battaglia (4 March) is remarkably quiet about the impact of the "Chicago Boys" on Chile, "Operation Condor" supporting the Latin American dictators, Henry Kissinger's travels, "The School of the Americas," a finishing school for dictators, the Videla Junta's impact on Argentina, the "desaparecidos," the tortures that took place in La Escuela Superior de Mecánica de la Armada, the American Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's meetings with Argentinian military leaders after the coup, urging them to destroy their opponents quickly before outcry over human rights abuses grew in the United States.

JE comments:  It's impossible to include every atrocity in one WAIS post.  We should also mention the US-engineered coup against Guatemala's Arbenz in 1954. 

Shall we re-focus this discussion in the direction of "what now" for Venezuela?  Should the International Community intervene, and if so, how?  The Maduro-Guaidó showdown has few precedents in world history:  two presidents, each with recognition from world and regional powers.  Historically this would mean civil war, but fortunately nothing that cataclysmic has happened yet.

Henry Kissinger is still going strong at 95.  I wonder how he would handle Maduro.
