2 Days Until 9/11 - 0/11/1973
Jakarta Is Coming or ,more precisely, “Djakarta se acerca” began appearing spray painted on walls around Santiago, Chile. What it meant would become apparent on the 11th of September 1973.
Jakarta or Brazil? This was the question the Nixon administration pondered when companies like ITT, Bank of America, Purina, and Pfizer came to them for help concerning the election of Salvador Allende.
In Brazil, the military staged a “soft coup” at the behest of the country’s elite and American businesses. The military junta allowed the appearance of freedom and elections.

Think this is just stuff that happens in far away lands inhabited by non-white peasants? Think again.
Currently the corporatocracy that runs this country could be seen as following the “soft-coup” Brazilian model, but with the rise of militarized police violence – Jakarta is not only coming… Jakarta is about to kick in your front door. You will know them as SWAT.
In Jakarta, with the help of the CIA, Sukarno unleashed a reign of state sponsored terror to suppress the cry for freedom from the masses.

The Nixon administration decided that the Jakarta model would be best and advised General Pinochet to follow Sukarno’s glowing example. Wholesale violence and economic “reforms” advised by the Chicago Boys was just what U.S. Business interests needed to “fix” decades of developmentalism that lifted millions out of poverty and illiteracy in the “Southern Cone”.
[ANALYSIS]: “You may be asking what does “Jakarta is Coming” mean. Well, here is the Coors Lite history. Prior to the the military coup in Chile in the early 1970′s, this phrase started being posted around Santiago, Chile. The message was meant to alert Chileans that something akin to the coup that took place a few years before in Indonesia was working its way, via multinational corporations and the CIA, to Chile. On September 11, 1973 the government of the democratically elected socialist Salvador Allende was overthrown by a military junta led by General Augusto Pinochet. What followed was an economic full nelson, led by Milton Friedman, which gave corporations operating in Chile huge profits and led to a societal bloodbath, sanctioned by the CIA.”
[ANALYSIS]: “Several years ago, I spoke to two members of Allende’s government. Two who managed to survive. One of them recalled: “They used to threaten us, before the coup, before that terrible September 11, 1973: ‘Watch out, comrades, Jakarta is coming!’”
“We did not know much about Jakarta then,” he confessed. “Only that it was the capital of a far-away country called Indonesia… But very soon we found out…”
‘Jakarta’ is not just the capital of the fourth most populous country on earth; it is also the ‘least habitable major city in Asia Pacific’. Jakarta is also a concept, an enormous experiment on human beings, which was quickly turned into a blueprint that has later been implemented by the West all over the developing world.
The experiment was about trying to figure out this: What happens to a poor country that is hit by a brutal military coup, then thrown to religious zealots, and forced to live under the heel of extreme capitalism and fascism? And what happens if almost its entire culture gets destroyed, and instead of education, some brainwashing mechanism perfected abroad, gets implemented?
What if you kill 2-3 million people, and then you ban entire languages and cultures, theatres, art films, atheism, everything that is to the left of center?
And what if you use thugs, paramilitaries, archaic family and religious structures and a ridiculously toothless media, to maintain ‘the new order’?
The answer is this: You get your Indonesian model!”
[HISTORY & ANALYSIS]: “During the period 1965-69, and especially during 1965-66, a series of mass murders took place in Indonesia which led to the institution in power of President Suharto and the opening up of the country to Western capitalism. Possibly more than a million people were slaughtered. “
