A Boots-on-the-Ground Report
I moved to Santiago, Chile during the Obama years: 2012, to be exact.

Switch for a moment to four military planes bombing a presidential palace - and replay a different September 11 movie starring Dick and Henry. "Dick", of course, is the late US president Richard Nixon.... Read More
