"Latin American Death Squads"

Can this card be played twice against the same player in the same round? For example: headlined, SALT-regrabbed and played again? Will this mean the player who played it twice will have American coups modifier at +1 while his opponent will have -3 (+2:-2 from Squads and -1:-1 from SALT)?

Best regards

I would say so, yes. Still, that takes a lot of time to play. Theoretically, you can even go to three times with Star Wars...

Theoretically I can go even four times if President Kennedy forces additional reshuffling  ;D

This is one of those, "You can, but why would you want to?" questions.  ;)

To coup Chile with a chance to turn opponent's control into mine? To play (as USA) Che harmlessly? ;)

By the time you set up enough +1's to meaningfuly coup Chile the rest of the world would be speaking russian buddy ;)

Add in some Containment and you've got some mega coups possible :-)

On a side note the US could theoretically coup 14 times in a single turn ;-)

Maybe but if it were the difference between controlling and uncontrolling South America being the only region that hadn't been scored so far I'd probably pay ;)

I didn't notice but as you posted it I guess I've found how :)

Much simpler to control Argentina and Peru and realign the USSR out of Chile.

Che can go to Space.

So how do you get 14 coups?  I can see 13.  7 ARs using ops, headline Missile Envy/ Junta / ABM Treaty, then the Soviet player plays North Sea Oil, CIA Created, Grain Sales, Tear Down This Wall, & Star Wars.  That's 13 coups.... what card am I missing?
