    Default Wikileaks: Vatican dismissed reports of Pinochet killings as ''Communist Propaganda''

    According to new diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks in the last few days, the Vatican dismissed reports of the murders of many people in Chile as ''possibly [the] greatest success of Communist propaganda''.

    ''The cables also showed the Vatican later realized the full extent of the abuses being carried out," according to AFP, "but refused to criticize Pinochet's regime openly and continued with normal diplomatic relations."

    Pinnochet's revolution was assisted by the Chicago Boys working out of the catholic University of Santiago.

    Do you really believe the church did not know what was being organised there before it happened?

    The CIA and the Catholic Church both either gave their active support or looked the other way because despite the savagery of right wing juntas their eyes were fixed on preventing Soviet expansion in Latin America.

    Social democrats, trade unions, students, left wing parties, journalists, academic etc whether the KGB were string pullers or not were vehicles for communists to try and replace the juntas with pro-Soviet regimes.

    The activities of the death squads were primarily about military strongmen eliminating all opposition and first world capitalist interests getting a foothold by giving them their backing in support for access to national resources.

    BUT as the CIA and Catholic Church saw it while they were undoubtedly butchering innocent people they were also getting rid of the communists threat.

    Centuries before when crusaders were concerned about unwittingly killing Christians when capturing Saracen controlled cities they were told by the Church:

    "Kill them all. God knows his own."

    "Kill them all. God knows his own."

    Ye clown that comes from the Albigensian crusade.

    Wouldn't expect you to know that though as there probably isn't a you tube video to consult.

    As for the Vatican cosying up to dictators.

    They've done that from the time of Charles Martel through to William the barsteward right up until the modern day.

    In the good ole days no one was aware and all's the murderer's had to do was build a Church, the size depended on how many deaths you were responsible for.

    Just like Wilson talking about the threat of the Germans in Haiti, ie absolute rubbish.

    Germans controlled about 80% of the country's international commerce and married into the mulatto families bypassing the constitutional prohibition against foreign land-ownership. They clearly sought to colonize Haiti.

    Germany also tried to encourage Mexico to attack the U.S. which was a major contributor to America entry into World War I.

    Prior to WWI German immigrants colonized much of southern Chile.

    The influence of the Prussian Army was very strong on the Chilean military and German influence is still obvious today.



    After the defeat of Nazi Germany, Soviet expansion became obvious in the overt or covert support of left wing political movements in Latin America.

    That is why America quickly forgave the sins of ex-Gestapo and SD and Wehrmacht personnel who traveled to South America and had key roles in training South America military and police death squads and helped set up torture centers and camps.

    Otto Skorenzy, the SS commando whose troops rescued Mussolini, who lived between Ireland and Spain helped train right wing military and mercenaries in Latin America and across the 3rd world in the 1950s and 1960s. It is also said he and other former German special forces helped train American special forces.

    The Irish connection to Argentina remained strong during the Peron era and despite the military junta in the 1970s and 1980s and indeed Charles Haughey who was friends with Skorenzy and sought arms from Flemish Nazi Albery Luykx was an opponent of the Falklands War.

    Irish Catholic priests and religious orders were and still are highly active in South America.
