The Battle of Chile is one of the greatest and most anguished of all documentaries. Given the US invasion of Iraq with the use of perfidious conservative lies, smoke, and mirrors, it is instructive that after thirty five years the US CIA, the conservative movement here, and military fellow travelers continue to con the people of our country into the most horrific of militaristic actions -- some spoken about, and some, as documented in The Battle of Chile -- buried with the same lies, smoke, and mirrors. Thus, this film is one all US citizens should see. So keep Netflicks busy because you'll never see it on the TV or a major film screen in this, the free-est of all possible nations.
