At 3:34:14 a.m. local time on Saturday, 27 February 2010, a little over a month
after a strong earthquake devastated Haiti, another quake, this one 8.8-magnitude,
struck Chile. The Chilean government called on the Armed Forces to provide vital relief
support, and this operation profoundly changed the relationship between the military and
the Chilean people. Army Gen. Juan Miguel Fuente-Alba Poblete, who has occupied the post
of commander-in-chief of the Chilean Army since a few days (10 March 2010) after the
earthquake, visited the U.S. Southern Command, where he granted Diálogo the following
interview.
