A PERON OF OUR OWN: Will You Cry for Us, Argentina? + A PROPOSAL TO POSTPONE MONDAY'S MEETING OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

CKRFA SEPTEMBER, 2016 NEWS LETTER - A PERON OF OUR OWN: Will You Cry for Us, Argentina? + A PROPOSAL TO POSTPONE MONDAY'S MEETING OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Unless something is done before Monday, I fear we will repeat the same tragic mistake Argentina made in 1946 when it elected Juan Peron as its President. You may be thinking it's ridiculous to compare Argentina to the United States. YOU ARE WRONG!

A PERON OF OUR OWN
Charles Krause was The Washington Post's South America correspondent, based in Buenos Aires from 1978 to 1980, during The Dirty War. Precipitated by Peron's return to Argentina after years in exile, Argentina's military undertook a campaign of State Terror during which thousands of "subversives" were kidnapped and killed in the name of preserving Argentina's "Western values."
