SALVADOR ALLENDE was killed in a US backed fascist coup in Chile on September 11, 1973. If I were Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson I would probably make the connection. Thirty years ago this month Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon in their imperial arrogance decided to replace a democratically elected President of a sovereign nation with a military fascist and brought down a 17 year reign of terror on a free people.
Would it not be cool if a "whirlwind" could be made to be politically selective.
This whirlwind Isabel now driving toward our nation's capitol could then be considered just deserts for the Republican Rightwingers who infest the place. Think of the irony involved in the name as 30 years later Allende's revenge through a whirlwind named for his famous author cousin would blow the progeny of American imperialism from D. C. to Hell or Texas from whence they came leaving only good Democrats to run the government.
Hurricane Isabel is on a path that could bring it ashore near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and north along the Chesapeake Bay near Washington D.C., through Virginia, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
Isabel is the cousin of Salvadore Allende
