Cuaderno Latinoamericano - Well, looks like Chile is getting the shaft from the U.S. because it refused to go along with the Bush Administration's UN ultimatum. Funny, that. After all the things Pinochet did, including disappearing so many people, to pave the way for Chile's becoming the ideal free trade partner of the United States - look at the thanks he and his country get for being a sellout to Washington for all those years. Well, perhaps a lesson can be squeezed out of this after all: pro-market policies at such a high cost to the national psyche won't get you anywhere - so might as well be decent to your own people.
