February 24th 1946; Juan Domingo Peron, the controversial former vice president of Argentina, is elected president. As president, Peron constructed an impressive populist alliance, and his vision of self-sufficiency for Argentina won him wide support. However, he also became increasingly authoritarian, jailing political opponents and restricting freedom of the press. In 1952, his greatest political resource, Evita, died, and support for him dissolved. Three years later, he was ousted in a military coup. In 1973, after 18 years of exile, he returned to Argentina and won the presidency again. His third wife, Isabel de Martinez Peron, was elected as vice president and in 1974 succeeded him upon his death.

To paraphrase Mc Cartur, dictators never die, they just vanish away. There are two in Cuba presently who will soon vanish.
