SUMMARY  

While the hard working peoples of Chile ventured north to exploit the inland nitrate mines and the guano deposits off the coast, thus watering the arid soil with their blood and sweat, short sighted authorities in Santiago were passively forfeiting the entire Patagonia, property of Chile ever since the Kings of Spain had established the territorial organization of their colonies in South America. 

Chile has gone through history territorially cornered, almost disappearing into the sea by the west, while looking to recover Antofagasta, ours since colonial times, and conquering Tarapacá in a war not of our choosing. 

Due to the chronic honoring of our word and on account of drawing back from conflict, Chile is trapped behind the Andes Mountains. A weak foreign policy during almost two centuries has led us to give away territory gained at a high cost, at a time when similar acts were considered ludicrous. 

We have finally found our way and the country is stronger in every way, so much so that our position is admired and respected by the peoples of our region. Our obligation is to continue strengthening our political, economic, civic, diplomatic and military power, in order to achieve a virtuous spiral that will allow us to efficiently cooperate in the peaceful development of Latin America.
