national security decision memoranduM

An unprecedented situation has arisen within our sphere of influence. The United States stands for democracy and freedom as the doctrine for all countries. However, we must be ready to take action when a country takes democracy in the wrong direction. The people of Chile are on the cusp of electing a socialist to lead their country. We can not stand for this threat to the region. We must take action now.

- Ronald Reagan
