What could have been
why would someone shoot a communist before throwing him out of a plane?
Why are communists so much sexier than fascists nine times out of ten?
Julius Caesar, Fidel Castro, Napoleon I. All three took a broken-ass system and rectified it with impunity. If people aside from the start of the dynasty (I do like Raul) could do the same I might be a monarchist.
Three people that managed to get a spontanious cult of personality going. Three men, that keked the right wing into Stockholm syndrome. Three men that actually got their hands dirty. Officer, partisan and a terrorist.
>the reforms he instituted didn't immediately take effect therefore ... ?
Don't worry about /pol/, Sankara is a pretty interesting dictator. Siad Barre was also interesting, though he went balls deep on committing atrocities on groups who opposed him.
>A 2004 World Bank report attributed 60% of Chile's 1990's poverty reduction to economic growth, and claimed that government programs aimed at poverty alleviation accounted for the rest.
so you are 40% correct I guess :^)
>“First we will kill all the subversives; then we will kill all their collaborators; then their sympathisers; then those who remained indifferent; and finally, we’ll kill the undecided.”
I don't like Pinochet because of his reforms, I like him because he threw commies out of helicopters.
Not really. Pinochet's policies were a disaster until the 1982 economic crisis, after that he went full liberal and by 1987 the economy was quickly improving.
Even though the first years of democracy had like a 7% average growth, some economists argue that the tax reform of 1991 affected Chile's ability to sustain that rate and decreased productivity.
Chilean economy was ok from 1977 to 1981, 1982 and 1983 were terrible, then everything went better since 1986.
Also, Aylwin's tax and labor reforms in 1990 fucked a lot of things in the 90's, same with that retarded indian act.
he is playing with fire in Syria at the moment, he runs a serious risk of Russian involvement escalating and getting bogged down a la Soviet-Afghan war
especially since the SAA are seemingly incompetent, even with Russian air support backing them up. Still, I hope they destroy ISIS
Just wait. They want to show the whole world that there really aren't any "moderate terrorists".
So they deal with SAA and FSA-like shitheads alike.
I wouldn't be surprised if by the end of the next year "the opposition" was completely eradicated.
Strange, when I went to Tanzania everyone spoke really highly of him as the founder of the country and said he was very good with removing tribal divisions. I was mainly visiting a wealthy catholic school, so maybe social class has something to do with it. Interesting how leaders can divide opinions so much, even when they obviously fuck up.
Because a society based on worker's communes with democratically elected leaders appeal to charismatic alpha males who would then be able to assume absolute political power.
ahahah, hell no
Dios te salve Marco Evángelista!!!
This is why we should bring back periodic ritualistic monarch sacrifice.
