Chile and the Cold War Part I: Introduction

For the Americans and the Soviets, the Cold War was just that, cold confrontation through proxy wars. In the 3rd world, the Cold War was as hot as it could get. In Chile, it changed the face and shape of the nation in a tremendous fashion.

Psychoanalysis always struck me as a bit shaky. So much about psychoanalysis relies on interpretation. That leaves the door open to substitution, especially where words and meanings are concerned.
