    “9/11 bloody coup”

    Why this insistence on using the US dating system?

    Nearly 4 BILLION people (including all of South America) use DDMMYY but they have to call it the “9/11” coup?

    If something happens in the US on 11th September then by all means call it 9/11 but don't be a lazy journalist and use it elsewhere otherwise it means 9th November.

    This coup happened on 11/9 not 9/11.

    Otherwise this article would be in the November issue.

    You mean you didn't like it
    The Brits copy the yanks at everything including lending on mortgages and assisting in the debt crisis and then pontificate about the debt crisis in 2002.

    Oh you think these articles are written by someone who is a native English speaker?

    @1, 3, 5. To be fair, this cowardly atrocity took place in the United States. If the victim chooses to call it September 11th, surely the world can go with that? What difference would it make it we called it 11/9? Still cowardly. Still depraved and degenerate. Just like argieland. Oops, did I say that out loud?

    Mercopress continually represents the views of UK and USA.Otherwise you would see more positive views about things that it doesn't report which is why as poster 6 says,'What difference would it make it we called it 11/9?'
    I would guess you are of English ethnicity rather than British or any other ethnicity.
    It was operation condor cooked in the school of “Americas” at the instigation of the Chicago boys and that's what matters.
    The new form of colonial exploration.

    Yeah that comment didn't make sense either.

    The article is published by a Spanish speaker and my ethnicity doesn't come into it.

    Argentina, Venezuela and Brazil are quite capable of fecking up their own country without any colonial exploration or even exploitation.
