Thank you Nestor for this important piece of history.

"What happened later is known. A nationalist, industrialist wing of the
Armed Forces, under the quite autocratic guidance of Juan Perón,
started to grab the main areas of government. When, on September 1945,
the imperialist bloc attempted, under the unenlightened lead of the
bullying USAmerican Ambassador Spruille Braden (whose name has become
an acronym for "diplomatic idiocy, rashness and lack of understanding"
both in Argentina and -Britain), a massive march was organized against
this wing, and it seemed to have been lost. Perón himself began to
consider retiring to some quite barren lands he owned in Patagonia.

"But at the same time, Perón had been establishing strong links with
the working class leadership. So that in 16 and 17 October 1945, a
popular uprising all over the country, where the workers went to
strike and eventually took the streets of Buenos Aires, the alliance
took shape in action. The nationalist military and the workers on the
streets launched Peronism and created the historic Perón.

"Not too different from what happened on April 2002 in Venezuela."

I am open to the idea, but am still thinking about it, that Argentina 
during the first government of Peron was a revolutionary state. If this is true,
as you believe, what happened next?

And what about Naser? Were there similar revolutionary events in Egypt which
placed Naser's group in power?

Forgive my ignorance, and or forgetfulness.
