lest we forget

As i am sure everyone knows, today is September 11, two years after what has gone in history as 9/11. I do not intend to diminish the atrocities that occured on that day, but i do wish to highlight the fact that other atrocities that happend on this day in history should not be forgotten or over looked.

Thirty years ago on September 11, 1973 a military coup lead by Pinochet overthrew the existing democratically elected government of Chile. Offical reports put the count at 3000 dead. Unofficial reports put the number much higher. The United States did not consider this an act of terrorism.
