Remembering 911



Today we're remembering the attacks caused by the islamic terrorists who, intentionally, hit the North and South towers of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Also, as a coincidence, the same day but in 1973, in Chile the military staged a coup against Salvador Allende (29th President of Chile 1970-1973). As the armed forces surrounded La Moneda Palace, Allende gave his last speech vowing not to resign, and then committed suicide. After Allende's death, Chile was led by a military junta beginning a dictatorship led by General Augusto Pinochet. 
Definitely a sad day for the whole Americas.
