Despite all of this, and even with a considerable drop in popularity during the later years, The Process might well have remained in power, had the third junta not declared war on Britain. Having lost [[UsefulNotes/TheFalklandsWar The Falklands Islands War]], The Process collapsed. The new government under Raoul Alfonsin (a human rights attorney) prosecuted the leaders of the first three juntas before military tribunals, and turned numerous other perpetrators over to civilian courts, before the threat of another revolt forced him to back down. The 1990s saw all of those involved pardoned by President Carlos Menem, and an attempt was made to forget the entire affair, only for [[TheAtoner Captain Adolfo Scilingo]]’s public admission of guilt for his part in the death flights to start a whole new round of confessions, exhumations, arrests, and trials, as perpetrators and victims alike began speaking out in the 2000s. The Supreme Court struck down Menem's pardon as unconstitutional, and many of those involved were rearrested; Videla and Massera would both spend the rest of their lives in custody. The resulting media frenzy effectively re-traumatized Argentine society, and ensured that the legacy of The Process will never fully go away.

Videla had once said that “As many people as necessary must die in Argentina so that the country will again be secure.” From 1976 to 1983, somewhere between 9,000 and 30,000 Argentines were arrested without trial, confined in secret prisons, gruesomely tortured and/or raped, and eventually, executed and buried in unmarked graves. Others were hurled, drugged and insensate, into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans from low flying airplanes and helicopters, their bodies never to be discovered. Thousands more still were subjected to lengthy prison terms and/or torture before being released into the world broken by the experience. To add a macabre twist, the juntas also kidnapped the children of leftists and sold them to rich Argentine families, enriching themselves in the process.[[note]]Which was only one of the ways of making profit. Typically, a raided household would be stripped of everything of value (the house itself included).[[/note]] Unwilling to limit their actions to their own country, the juntas made their intelligence service an integral part of the Pan-South American ''Operation: Condor'', collaborating with UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet’s Chile, Alfredo Stroessner’s Paraguay, and the military juntas of Bolivia, Peru, Uruguay, and Brazil to terrorize, repress, and assassinate leftists across the continent. The eventual death toll reached somewhere around 60,000, making ''Operation: Condor'' the worst politicide in the history of modern South America.

* ''Nunca Más'' ('Never Again') is the report presented by the CONADEP (National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons), a commission created by President Raul Alfonsin after his instauration to investigate the human rights violations committed by the Juntas. The report contains testimonies from relatives and survivors accounting for the abductions, tortures and murders they witnessed, all evidence that would help in the trials against the Juntas.

The National Reorganisation Process, known in Spanish as ''Proceso de Reorganización Nacional'' or ''El Proceso'' (The Process), was the name given to a series of military juntas who controlled Argentina from March 24, 1976 until December 10, 1983. Generally regarded as one of the darkest eras—if not the darkest era—in Argentine history, The Process saw the suppression of civil rights, the integration of the military into every facet of Argentine life, and the "disappearance" of thousands of Argentines as the military tried to cleanse of the country of leftist political dissidents.[[note]]"Dissidents" means anyone vaguely smelling of potential opposition, up to and including school age children.[[/note]]
