BBC discusses CHILE: THE OTHER 9/11
On the morning of Tuesday 11 September 1973, two jets launched a deadly attack on the Presidential Palace of La Moneda in the heart of Santiago, Chile. A military coup led by Augusto Pinochet ousted the presidency of Salvador Allende, the world's first democratically-elected Marxist head of state.
Also, someone queried "Riverbend" of Baghdad Burning:
"Someone asked me whether it was true that the 'Iraqi people were dancing in the streets of Baghdad' when the World Trade Center fell. Of course it's not true. I was watching the tv screen in disbelief- looking at the reactions of the horrified people. I wasn't dancing because the terrified faces on the screen, could have been the same faces in front of the Amiriyah shelter on February 13… it's strange how horror obliterates ethnic differences- all faces look the same when they are witnessing the death of loved ones."
