Not a single leaf moves in this country if I'm not the one moving it. I want that to be clear!

The nation is trying to make Chile a country of proprietors, not of proletarians.

How very economical! (?Pero que economía más grande!)




Augusto Pinochet quotes
To whom are we going to ask to be forgiven? To the one who tried to kill us? To the one who tried to destroy our country? To whom? They are the ones who must ask to be forgiven for everything they did before September 11.
Augusto Pinochet
Had I been a dictator, I would still be governing.
Pinochet quotes
Today, near the end of my days, I want to say that I harbor no rancor against anybody, that I love my fatherland above all and that I take political responsibility for everything that was done which had no other goal than making Chile greater and avoiding its disintegration.… I assume full political responsibility for what happened.
Pinochet Augusto
The country is safe, because we have a good intelligence service.
Pinochet Augusto quotes
I have a sour face. Maybe that's why they say I'm a dictator.
Augusto Pinochet
I devalued the peso solely looking after the poor.
Augusto Pinochet quotes
If Senator Kennedy is elected President of the United States, the government of Chile will take the necessary measures.
Augusto Pinochet
Is it true what Contreras testified before the courts, that the president of the junta and later the president of the Republic was the direct head of DINA?
I don't remember, but it is not true. It is not true and if it was, I don't remember. Contreras liked to cajole, wrap around his boss. Contreras gave the orders. It was he who managed the institution.
Pinochet Augusto
Power must be vested in the armed forces, since only they have the organization and the means to fight Marxism.
