The CIA is not slouch and no angelic force for good but facts are facts. There is some really wrong stuff in that article about Guatemala! And if the “left-of-center” governments were so vulnerable to the CIA, then why is there no right-of-center governments left in Latin America?
Where do you get your paycheck for being a professional history revisionist, Stephen? I’m breaking my own rule and I am not even going to post a link to such revisionist history, a coverup for the really bad guys, probably the guerrillas themselves that did the massacre and then blamed it on the military.
The ruling against Efrain Rios Montt is a blatant abuse of power and corruption itself, a coverup for the real abusers, and is a message to all men in political positions to “obey, or else we will get you, now or later”. And they want you to remember Pinochet: If we can’t get you, we’ll keep you locked up based on a lying judge in Spain (with an open public history of Communism) for awhile and then we’ll come after your children. It’s also a warning to their operatives, the ones that are fully cognizant of the crimes they commit against all the peoples, to stay away from Christians. That’s another reason he’s the one persecuted.
The bad guys have offered up a scapegoat to take the blame. But it won’t work. They will get their just desserts later, maybe from the same overlords that wanted to punish him.
The revisionist history that makes genocide disappear is not the ones that the revisionists that fancy themselves “leftists” make it out to be.
Fact check #1: Efrain Rios Montt did NOT “seize power”. A coup d’etat did ask him to run the government, after overthrowing one of the most blatant electoral FRAUDS to that date in Guatemala’s history, after the then RIGHT!-of-center president that they overthrew arranged his own “re-election”, votes be damned, and the people roared in such loud protest demanding mlitary intervention against this shameless attack on “democracy”. They asked Efrain Rioss Montt to serve because he was universally respected in Guatemala as honest and impeccable.
But they overthrew him 16 months later because he remained true to his reputation, and because he tried to STOP dirty tactics against the guerrillas. Three percent my ass!
That’s why it took till NOW to do this, because (1) the real bad guys needed a scapegoat, and they don’t like Bible-believing Christians, and (2) a lot of voices of truth resisting the lies had to die off first, and (3) to get a younger indoctrinated generation critical mass that was not so close to events.
Like Manuel Zelaya planned on doing in his own unreported auto-coup, too, in 2009.
As to that slaughter of the Indians, he STOPPED it. It was local landowners getting colonels to take over lands, AND THE GUERRILLAS WERE MAKING SURE THERE WAS ENOUGH CONFUSION AND FALSE INTELLIGENCE TO MAKE SURE a lot of innocent Mayans would be killed.
That is what they’ve been doing in Honduras. The revisionist history in this article is the “leftist” version. The international socialists are as bad as the National Socialists for pushing lies and propaganda and distortions.
As we speak they are agitating a climate of serial murder against journalists and public figures in Honduras to take over by hook and crook after the Honduran people rejected their auto-coup by fraud in 2009.
Revisionist history indeed!
