Hi gentle scholars, 

Isn't the point, the old-fashioned point I suppose - *who* benefits by
this prosecution of Pinochet? Who is trying to distance themselves? Who
stands to gain by being unassociated, becoming dissassociated -  with
P.? 

Because I do not think, gentle readers, that it is the dead who are
achieving in this story. Someone is scoring. And it probably isn't the
bereft, in the end. 

In whose interests is it that the Western democracies should - belatedly
- bring the dictator to trial?
