25 of November is badly explained[edit]

The "25 of November" is badly explained. The Communist Party isn't viewed nowadays as the driving force of the attempted coup, nor is Otelo especially "hated" by Communists for that reason. The military close to the Communist Party abstained from participation from the beginning. It's not clear of course if the position of the Communist Party would change in favour of the coup - it could - but in fact it didn't and the so-called "revolutionary left" was quickly defeated by an already well-organized counter-revolution that was in preparation for months. I can source all of this BTW, and it's more or less what is present in the portuguese version of the article. I'm leaving this here just to gather comments before touching anything.--Bellum sine bello 16:01, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
