sebastian pinera ollanta humala 2Relations between Chile and Peru are impregnated with a jargon which is to be understood through expressions that disguise concepts like “Chilean domination” and “Chilean hegemony”; among these camouflage words we find “confidence-building measures”, “mutual trust”, “integration”, “agenda for the future”, “complementation”, “Let’s look the future together”, “Chile and Peru need each other”, among other absurdities.

The glory of Colonel Francisco Bolognesi Cervantes shines forever as an example of sacrifice, honour and heroism.

November 1879. Chile has invaded Peru*. On November the 27th the Peruvian army, under the command of Colonels Andrés A. Cáceres and Francisco Bolognesi, fighting an eight-hour uphill battle, has defeated the Chilean robbers in Tarapacá but this is the victory of a retreating army. The Peruvian army, very tired from a strenuous march across the desert, engaged the Chilean terrorists in Tarapacá just with rifles--they had neither cavalry nor artillery. Once the vanquished Chilean thieves ran away, Peruvian soldiers managed to bury the Krupp guns the fleeing foe had left over--they had to bury the guns because they didn’t have any horses to tow that seized artillery.

Four-year long war--robbery, murder, terrorism in the process. Territorial mutilation.

Today 132 years ago Chile declared war on Peru. This way Chile, America’s fratricidal country, seized Peru’s Tarapacá and Arica (see map). In order to achieve this goal Chile waged a murderous and destructive war, which began in 1879 and ended in 1883. In this war the invading Chilean military indulged in very serious crimes such as robbery, massive plunder, extensive murder and terrorism.

Chilean Diplomacy--a nest of thieves


On July the 12th*, Dr. Jesús Valentín Coquis, representative of the Patriotic Comission, pointed out that between Chile and Peru there shall not be a real equitable relationship so long as Chile refuses to give back Arica and Tarapacá to Peru. We must bear in mind, said he, what happened between France and Germany--the latter invaded France and occupied Alsace and Lorraine but later gave these lands back to France. Only after these French provinces were returned to France could a solid France-Germany relationship be established.

Chilean robbers: “Peruvians and Bolivians hate us, their souls are kindled by hatred”

Any war leaves an unpalatable aftermath, especially if you are on the losing side. This must be understood by the victors and the vanquished alike. Once fighting comes to an end, fair treatment, proportionate reparations and peace are on the order of the day.
