Egyptians would be lucky if their new ruling generals turn out to be in the mold of Chile's Augusto Pinochet, who took power amid chaos but hired free-market reformers and midwifed a transition to democracy. If General Sisi merely tries to restore the old Mubarak order, he will eventually suffer Mr. Morsi's fate.Ignorant fucking assholes. [No they are not, they just think everyone else is, amounts to the same really]
As previously timid Chilean judges found chinks in the dictator's legal armor, the number of criminal cases against him jumped to hundreds. By the time Britain sent Pinochet back to Chile, ostensibly on health grounds, the myth of his immunity had been shattered. For the last years of his life, Pinochet was dogged by his past. His immunity was stripped in six major cases, ranging from death squads and abductions to the hiding of millions of dollars abroad, and at the time of his death, he was under house arrest. One hundred and nine other agents of his regime have now been convicted of human rights crimes.Dear god, unbelievable.
Perhaps I am late on this, but I really couldn't let it pass,
I'm too disgusted to write more
Under the 1973 to 1990 dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet, the people of Chile were subjected to a systematic campaign of torture and state violence: an estimated 2,600 - 3,400 Chilean citizens were executed or “disappeared” while another 30,000 to 100,000 were tortured.
