I think it's easy to forget that just before Pinochet the leftists were attacking farms and killing farmers Zimbabwe style. The only reason we forget is because they were stopped before they could to real damage. They are lucky they didn't end up another communist genocide statistic like Cambodia.

So I am not to upset about the actual active communists.

I am however sorry for the other people who got killed and tortured. The people who got brought in just because they were related to someone who was a communist or part of an ethnic group who's community leaders were cheerleading the revolution. The young idealists who just wanted a fairer society and mistakenly thought marxism could bring that. etc.
