Gen Pinochet died and the comwads are out in force before his body is laid to rest. It seems the far left dolts in the media have two sets of standards for dictators. Yahoo news seems to find it noteworthy that Pinochet ammased a fortue of seventeen million. This is chump change comared to the amounts looted by Arafat, Castro, Kim Jong Mentally Ill and Mugabbe. Even the 3000 dead by his rule in a civil war is a number far lower than all the above.
Pinochet was hounded by a series of lawsuits by communist agitators. These agitators seem to give leftist vermin like Arafat and Ortega a free pass. Helicopter massacres of indigenous people with Pseudostinian advisors are just peachy. When the Native Americans fight back the left calls them drug runners or Samoza's National guard. The current spate of Commie thugs will bring several coups in the future. Pinochet was a patriot who did not want his country to be ruined by Communism.
Has the media discussed Arafat, Kim Jong Mentally Ill and Castro's fortunes made off of coruption. The media barely discusses the Clinton shady book deals, selling of pardons and unethical campaign fund raising. Maybe Pinochet should have written his own book. No doubt his book would be less boring than either Clintons book. Moreover, Pinochet could probably write the book himself without Ghost writers. Even Wrestler Mick Foley apparently manages to write his own books.
We hear the platitudes from the Left about Cuban health care and everyone can read what they are told to read. There were no platitudes about Pinochet from those on the right. He was a Chilean patriot who saved his country from becoming another Cuba.
Any comparison of Castro, Mugabe, Assad and Arafat is an insult to Pinochet.
