Good article.

BBC News - Argentine Mothers mark 35 years marching for justice

"Human rights groups estimate that more than 30,000 people were kidnapped and murdered during this time by extremist right-wing groups or the military government that seized power in a coup in 1976."

Tragic.

Many people in the US have never heard of this travesty of justice. In fact, Henry Kissinger voiced his approval of the Argentinian dictatorship, back in the day.

"Henry Kissinger gave his approval to the "dirty war" in Argentina in the 1970s in which up to 30,000 people were killed, according to newly declassified US state department documents."
